Aliki Yoga School and retreat in Paros, offers one week intensive hatha yoga courses based on the system of Mr. B.K.S. Iyengar, but with a softer approach. All classes are given in English, no chanting, no worshipping but basic down to earth yoga practice with postures (asanas) and breathing (pranayama) Emphasis on alignment and on the connection between the mind, the body and the breath. The yoga studio is situated at the south of the island in Piso Aliki, a small fishing village, next to the beach and close to the village center.
Small groups of maximum 11 people ensure enough personal attention and correction. Therefore people of all levels are welcome, from those without yoga experience, to more experienced yogi’s. Classes are taught in an open way and the atmosphere is friendly and non-competitive.
Oona Giesen, the yoga teacher, started with Iyengar Yoga 40 years ago, around 1973, when she was eight years old. She became expert by experience in managing back-pain with yoga since she broke her spine in a car accident in 1998 and since then recovered herself extremely well with her yoga.
