Why Hatha Yoga?

Hatha refers to the physical practice of Yoga. The word Hatha can be translated as “the yoga of activity” and as “sun” (ha) and “moon” (tha). It is the Yoga of balance. It includes the practice of asanas (physical postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises).

All other styles of Yoga – Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Iyengar – stem from the principles of Hatha Yoga.

About this Course:

This 100hr TTC is fully accredited with Yoga alliance International. You will be equipped to not only deepen your self practice but ready to lead others on this path of self discovery through teaching Yoga.

Over the two weeks we will cover the following topics:

  • What is Yoga – the History and Philosophy
  • Sanskrit terminology
  • Different styles of Yoga

Travel Tips: Getting to Patmos

Patmos is a small Greek Island in the Aegean sea. Off the west coast of Turkey it is one of the northernmost islands of the Dodecanese complex. Most famous for being the location where the disciple John had visions sent to him to write the Book of Revelations for the New Testament.

The island has no airport and remains a more traditional, tranquil island compared to the more popular tourist destinations such as Mykonos and Santorini.

To get to Pátmos you will need to fly into Athens or one of the neighbouring islands: Leros, Samos, Kalymnos, Rhodes or Kos. From there you will then take a ferry.

Many European airlines fly directly to Rhodes and Kos.

Leros, Samos and Kalymnos usually require a flight via Athens. But the ferry to Pátmos is then only approximately 1 hour from these islands – as opposed to seven hours from Athens.

Most people find the easiest connection via Kos. Flights go directly to Kos and are relatively inexpensive from many European cities. Your options from Kos are either 2 hours on the catamaran or 3 hours on the colossus to reach Patmos.

From Kos airport you can take a taxi to the port (€38) or there is a bus that leaves following the arrival of most daytime flights (€3.20). The trip takes around 25 minutes by taxi and 40 minutes with the bus.

Accommodation for the Courses at eCala Village

ECALA village is located in Meloi bay. A 3 minute drive or 20 minute walk from the bustling port of Skala. Skala has several shops, tavernas and places to explore. This in contrast to Meloi baby which has very little activity. Meloi bay offers breathtaking sunrises and ideal swimming bays. All this on the doorstep of your geodesic dome. The Geodesic domes are designed to create the lowest possible footprint possible on the island. But sets the standard of both luxury and comfort. Fall asleep every night while looking up at the stars through your skylight.

• 24 beautiful domes for double occupancy • Single occupancy, if available, is at an additional €75 per person per night • Learning domes and many outdoor spaces, allowing us to run several subjects simultaneously • A Greek taverna • A massive amphitheatre for fun and events
