Join Eduardo Terzidis for this special 5 day Yoga Retreat hosted on the beautiful land of Azula.

During the retreat we will dive into deepening our yoga practice – or beginning one for those who have never practiced yoga before. We will take the time to explore our bodies, minds and breath so to reconnect to our life intention. There will be three yoga sessions a day during which we make use of different tools coming from the yogic tradition, varying from meditation, asana and pranayama.

This retreat is a perfect time to unwind, to reconnect and to slow down. There will be plenty of solo time during which you can journal, go for a walk or go for a swim on the nearby beach.

This is also a time to connect with like-minded people and create long term friendships with people from all around the world.

The retreat is recommended for both people who have no experience of yoga before or for long term practitioners as our motto is that we are always beginners anyways !

***ABOUT THE FACILITATOR

EDUARDO TERZIDIS is a surfer, yogi and permaculture designer. He is Italian-Brazilian, born in Rome and has been living around the world during the last years. Surfing has been at the centre of his life since he was 5 years old and started playing with the waves. Growing up, he decided he wanted to give back to Nature all the precious gifts he receives under the form of waves and undescribable experiences in the Ocean. He started questioning why we humans hurt Nature so much, when Nature is so kind with us. He has graduated as a mechanical engineer and soon realized that the 9 to 5 , suit and tie life was not for him. Since then, he has hit the road on a journey to discover himself and to break the patterns of modern society. This journey led him to Yoga, which he has started practicing with Nick Larsen. He sees Yoga as way to connect to our true selves and after years of personal study, Eduardo started teaching yoga in Italy, Australia and Austria.
His work focuses on shifting modern patterns towards more sustainable ones in order to create a more eco-logical future for our own selves and the environment around us.
