Course Overview

Bookings for this event officially close on the 16th August. If you are trying to book after this date please check with us what rooms are available. This event can be done stand-alone or as part of our  European Teacher Training. The training consists of four individual week-long modules with each providing 50 hours of tuition, of which 40 hours are delivered in person and 10 hours online. You can participate in each module without completing the whole training. Students who wish to gain deeper knowledge about a particular subject rather than wanting to teach are welcome.

Chakra Meditation Level 1, Sutra and Asana with Gregor will take place on the 17 – 23 September 2025 at Limeni Village Hotel, Areopoli, Greece. Limeni is about 3-and-a-half hours south of Athens. We organize bus transfers directly from Athens airport.

This six-day retreat will include a Led Ashtanga class on the first morning and Mysore-style classes on subsequent mornings. The afternoon classes will predominantly deal with the meditation technique described in Gregor’s book Yoga Meditation, Through Mantras, Chakras and Kundalini to Spiritual Freedom, which he considers the most powerful and transformative meditation technique available. Gregor will also spend time on chanting and discourse on the Yoga Sutra and the practice of Tantric Meditation. Each full day will comprise of 6 hours, 40 minutes of tuition. Vegan/ vegetarian breakfast and dinner buffets are included in the price. Transport is not included. There are various accommodation options.

A breakdown of the subjects in detail:

Guided and Mysore-style asana classes

Here Gregor will analyse the many intricate anatomical details of the majority of the postures of the Primary Series, while maintaining as much pace as possible. The focus will be on breaking down the various phases of entering and exiting the postures into their constituents. Performing postures safely while understanding which anatomical actions will get us deep into the asanas will prevent unnecessary energy expenditure. Through inducing precision this format also achieves that conditioning and emotions lodged in bodily tissue are released, preparing us for the higher limbs of pranayama and meditation.

The Mysore-style format will give students the opportunity to integrate the information learning in the Led class and also for Gregor to give individual attention to student’s needs.

Yogic Meditation

Different to Vedantic or Buddhist meditation, yogic meditation contains the same structural elements as yogic postures and breathing and was designed to form together with those an integrated whole. Meditation is the method of bringing your mind into a receptive state
 so that you can receive higher knowledge that is already there. Yogic meditation is a collection of scientific methods to bring about such awareness. To accelerate spiritual evolution yogic meditation employs many means amongst which the prime ones are mantra, mudra, bandha, chakra-visualization and Kundalini-raising techniques. The yogic chakras are representations of evolutionary brain circuitry with the lower three chakras representing our reptilian, mammalian and primate ancestry respectively. By understanding the chakras and skillfully meditating on them yoga offers the opportunity to activate higher brain centres and propel the evolution not only of the individual but of society as a whole. Kundalini-raising techniques consist of a combination of all other yogic means to raise the life force (prana) to a level where meditation is easy and spiritual insight becomes spontaneous.

Yoga Sutra, and Sanskrit chanting

“The Yoga Sutra entered my life 39 years ago and since then it’s been a constant companion. It took me a long time to completely understand it but once this had happened it ended all confusion I had about yoga. Understanding the Sutra gave me complete confidence in how to apply my practices diligently and that I would succeed in due time. The Sutra changed yoga for me from a faith and hope-based system to a science with predictable and repeatable outcomes. It is exactly this confidence and certainty that I would like to pass on to my students. The workshop will be interactive, with ample time for participants to ask questions.”

The Yoga Sutra is the operating manual of yoga. It is only when we understand the why’s and how’s of yoga that we will practice with confidence and beyond doubt. In this class we will chant selected stanzas in Sanskrit and a detailed commentary based on Gregor’s four decades of practice and study will be given. The commentary will retain the depth of the ancient treatises but will be fun, relatable and applicable to modern urban life.

HAPPY STUDENTS

Thank you so much Monica for your impassioned and joyful teachings. I so thoroughly enjoyed your yoga, your teachings, your chanting, your guided meditations. The whole course was very inspiring. When I was teaching this morning I was dipping into my new tool box and body of knowledge and applying it to my class. It was all very well received and a few light bulbs went on for all of us. It was great to apply and practice on the students.
