Glow Up in Greece: Re-Ignite Your Inner Flame

Yoga Retreat

The popular term “glow up” is used to describe a significant physical transformation that is perceived as an improvement in one’s appearance. It’s a process of turning into your best PHYSICAL self. I am all for that! But I do believe the true “glow up” starts on the inside. Everything starts with how you feel about yourself. Feeling capable of creating your best life, starts with creating your best self – from the inside out.

Join us as we explore the Greek island of Andros and delve into how yoga, stillness, breathwork and travel can be used to tap into the energy that gets buried by time, experiences and life in general. We will enjoy nature with a sunrise hike, explore a local village with shopping and lunch, enjoy local island flavors during a wine tasting session and sail through the Aegean sea. 

Each day will start with a yoga practice designed to find strength and power in the body and mind. These sessions will be progressive and become more challenging as the days go on so you can find your own personal edge (YOUR edge) and confidence. Following each daily class we will explore breathwork and stillness designed to calm the nervous system and clear out the “gunk” that accumulates in the heart, mind and body.

Come and re-ignite the magnetic flame you are in what I call a TRUE “glow up.”

You glow differently when you:

  • Learn to regulate your nervous system
  • Develop a secure attachment to self
  • Seek your own validation
  • Listen to your own body and emotions
  • Take those brave steps to heal
  • Set goals that feel aligned and achievable.

This is your opportunity to GLOW.

Yoga and Workshops

What to expect in Tonya’s Classes

Tonya’s classes are for yogis of all levels. She encourages moving with strength and power while listening to the body and gently exploring its “edges.” Tonya particularly enjoys teaching the fundamental principles that comprise this sacred practice to those that previously felt yoga was not for them. 

Workshop 1: Glow Up – Re-ignite Your Inner Flame

For this workshop we will create our own personal Glow-Up Manuals! We will use our intention to map out the path to the best version of ourselves. You will create a unique list that aligns with your goals and dreams. Afterwards we will sink into a healing Yoga Nidra practice.

Workshop 2: Turn Your World Upside Down 

In this fun workshop we will enjoy a yoga class designed to open stiff areas of the body and move the “energy” around. During the second half of class we will use what we’ve learned to practice fun poses and inversions. Sometimes turning things upside down gets you a different perspective! This class is about finding joy in the exploration and celebration of what the body can do.
