Anastasia Goltsev

I first met the path of yoga at the age of 14, since then the journey of self discovery is going on and the road is always ahead of me. I have practiced different branches of traditional yoga (vinyasa, ashtanga, yin, Ayengar). Since 5 years, i am teaching an integrated style that developed based on studies, personal experience, research and in-depth practice.
Yoga is for everyone, without exception.
Yoga is not the asana we see.
Yoga includes all life aspects.
We practice to connect with all our layers, let the emotions be, allow the mind to quiet, learn to channel energy in our body - that just wants to pass.
I live in Greece for years, in a natural and quiet environment. I am waiting to host you in my home.

Why Writing?

Writing is a wonderful way to listen to yourself, discover, open, release. To take internal parts - including fears and pains and ventilate them in the sun, in the light..
Writing will allow us to ground ourselves, to accept, to forgive and above all to find an inner voice that will direct us back home - to ourselves. We will learn to play with words, with joy and with sadness. In the workshop we will look at the world as writers, find inspiration inside and outside, dissolve fears and surrender to creativity. Through the words we will discover our story, be strengthened and find inner peace.

Why Yoga & Meditation?

Our body feels everything and it knows the truth.
Our body is smart, and it has all the answers without using words. The external world, our jobs, duties, interactions, relations and daily activities, are taking over our inner connection - as it is all a question of the amount of time, focus & energy you give. Then slowly, as any unattained aspect, our bodies start to store tensions, which then become health issues.. our whole life quality decreases significantly, our mental health suffers, our mood drops and we become less radiant and happy.
Come to receive the supporting circumstances to allow the body to open up, give the body the honor of leading us through our emotions into peace and stability. Through the body we can always anchor. The meditation will give peace to the mind that is busy with the past and the future, with worries and possible scenarios. 
Movement and meditation open up unfamiliar paths. As the lungs expand and the head rests, our perspective also increases. This flow is essential for both breathing and writing. It makes the heart beat and enables clarity along with joy and inner freedom.

Why Evia - Greece?

To be outside, in the air, free, connected to nature, the sea, the land. Evia island is a virgin stimulating place, full of colors and textures. We will be inspired by everything around us. Calmness and disconnection from the daily hassles. Listen to our deep voices and give them attention. To simply be together under the sun and the moon.

We will be hosted to the views of the peaceful bay of North Evia, on a beautiful sandy beach strip - the hotel is right in front of the sea. Next to the hotel is an open space for practice, on one side  green mountain views and on the other side the sound of the sea. (You might get lucky and get to see the dolphins who come to visit from time to time).

Walking distance from a tavern (restaurant), beach bar, cafe - which you can visit in your free time.
