Take a plunge into our Seaside Nia Retreat for your "Eternal Yes”!

Rosy’s Little Village, Agistri, Greece

Offered by Demetra Yuvanu and returning guest instructor, Amy Nelsen

August 27 – September 3, 2016

We invite you to join us for a heart centered Nia retreat honoring your Eternal Yes!

Your journey begins with only a short boat ride from the mainland's Port of Piraeus, leaving concerns, worries and stress behind you. Our week-long retreat is open to all who seek to reconnect with self and illuminate the joy within. Allow yourself to let go and plunge into an in depth experience, abundant in joy, freedom, heart connections, authenticity and empowerment.

Our Nia classes are designed to take you on a sensory filled journey of movement and healing enhanced by soul stirring world music. Allow the ancient waters of the Aegean Sea and the warmth of the sunshine transport you to a place of healing and peace. Make the commitment to yourself and join us on this magical retreat of self discovery through movement, holistic health and wellness. Of course no experience is necessary, just an open mind and heart.

Additionally, you will have the opportunity to treat yourself to mind/body healing services** offered by both of us. Together we will make beautiful memories that will last a lifetime.

About your instructors

Demetra (Demi):
I am a Greek native and this is my 4th year offering the Seaside Nia Retreat at Rosy's, a sanctuary for mind, body and spirit. I am a licensed Nia Blue Belt (planning on getting my Brown Belt by August) and have been teaching since 2003. My approach is heart centered: Guide the class authentically, speak with intention and encourage the "eternal yes" to shine in all. Make use of the voice to diminish stress and revitalize the participants' energy. The twinkle in the students' eyes when they connect with the magic of Nia is my priceless reward. My classes are energetic and fun. One of my favorite phrases: "There's no Nia police" never fails to put everyone at ease and everyBODY to relax into sensations of joy and pleasure. I end each class with a guided meditation.

I am excited to welcome back Amy for her second adventure with the Seaside Nia Retreat. Joining us from Charlotte, NC; she received her Nia White Belt in 2013 and has been teaching ever since. She brings with her a vivacious spirit, a passion for community connection, a tremendous love of movement, teaching and guiding of soul purpose development. Her style of Nia is unique, blending the sounds of all types of music particularly, jazz, latin, house music even some classical. She also adds elements of Yoga and Meditation.

Amy’s classes invite all students both familiar with Nia and beginners to fully embrace the importance of the Body, Mind and Spirit connection. She guides them through with excitement and comfort making each student feel they are fully supported. She lays the foundation for all students to step in, to be brave, to take risks, to have fun!
In addition to Nia, Amy will be offering healing services. For more information please click here.
