Description

Yoga

Based on the basic principles of yoga, we shall dwell deeper
into how energy is related to the balance between body, mind
and emotions, with gentle practices involving breathing, yoga
positions and relaxation. We will attempt to make a journey
inwards and understand ourselves better. We will find the time to
reflect on who we are, an action that is often neglected through
our daily lives. We will learn our limits, expand our horizons and
relax deeply.
The workshops are addressed to adults without any severe
medical conditions, willing to explore new paths, which lead to
personal freedom and advancement.
*Participants are advised to wear comfortable clothes, bring
along their own yoga mat, as well as a wrap-around to cover
their bodies during relaxation.

Urban Cycling

As an urban cyclist for more than 15 years and founder of the
48×17 cycles, Agis Kolivas has much to say about the streets of
Athens, specifically about how cycling in this city is not an urban
myth, but can -and should- become a daily habit. This informal
ÔintroductionÕ to urban cycling will focus on diverse issues (what
is the safest way to begin cycling systematically, how to lock
your bike correctly, how to react in case of an accident, beautiful
routes in town, how to connect effectively different areas of
Athens by the bicycle), will highlight useful and practical tips and
will take us through the wonderful cycling terrain of Athens.

CHILDREN ACTIVITIES

 

Play and learn

A contemporary and amusing revival of games that still excite
children in squares or school yards and which we are all
acquainted with or have played when young. Hopscotch, tug
of war, hoops and hop sack racing will be, among others the
starting point for contemporary versions of the games which,
however, will not change those particular features that have
made them last through time, becoming an integral part of our
folk culture. And it is not only the children who will have fun
playing. Grown ups will recall memories from their childhood
and might even be tempted to play too, turning this activity into
a meeting across generations and an occasion for some
essential mentoring of the young.
