Activities at Atsitsa Bay, Greece

Ecstatic Dance, QiGong with Cathy Skora

Sun 9 - Sun 16 Jun 2024

Mystic Motion - Ecstatic Dance

Ecstatic dance is a form of dance in which the dancers, abandon themselves to the rhythm and move freely as the music takes them, leading to a feeling of well being through deep meditative movement.

Class will include physical and meditative warm ups to assist us in our journey.  We will explore a variety of rhythms from around the world to reflect the well of emotional, spiritual and physical expressions that we all possess.

The main objective of the class is to let our spirits soar through movement.

Qigong by the Sea

Gentle stretches, breath work, and meditating by the edge of the sea. This course will provide an opportunity to visit your center through experiencing and focusing on your energy, or life-force, reflected back to you by the majestic seas at Atsitsa.  Qi Qong and other meditative forms   continue to hold my fascination as the wealth within our life force is boundless.  We will explore Qiqong through practice of poses, movement, chanting, and meditating by the sea. 

Cathy has been studying, practicing, and teaching Qigong as well as other meditative forms for over 20 years.

Qi Qong is an ancient Chinese health care system that integrates physical postures, breathing techniques and focused intention. The word Qigong (Chi Kung) is made up of two Chinese words. Qi is pronounced chee and is usually translated to mean the life force or vital-energy that flows through all things in the universe.
