ANIMAL MOVEMENT is a dynamic practice based on the primitive movements and imitations of animals which contributes to the improvement of strength, the development of endurance, dexterity, balance and agility. Coordination of movements combined with speed contributes to the connection of the nervous system while at the same time slow isometric movements support and strengthen the nervous system.
On the weekend of March 18-19, we will do an introduction to animal movement techniques, we will see the basic positions and their transitions, we will create flows and finally we will integrate this knowledge into a combined flow of animal movement and yoga. We will explore how to use each movement, and how to compose your own flow.

Christina Skarmoutsou
Christina, after studying marketing, costume design, interior design and working in this field, chose to dedicate her energy to the transmission of yoga knowledge with the motivation to share with other people the benefits she experienced as a practitioner.
Thus, in 2016 she completed the first 200-hour Hatha Yoga teacher training with Andreas Proveleggios and began the teaching journey that continues to this day with joy and creativity.
She continued to train alongside notable teachers with the aim of both deepening the philosophy and techniques of yoga, as well as specializing in topics such as orthopedic and musculoskeletal diseases (Raja Yoga 300hr with Andreas Proveleggio, Biomechanics and Yoga with Tina Zymaraki, Yoga Anatomy at Yoga International).
Over the years, she wanted to enrich her knowledge about the body, movement and healing through it. She was trained and certified in Animal Movement by Panos Theodorou and in Aerial Yoga by Grafts.
Her lessons have variety, flow and harmony.

    Thai yoga massage
    What is a Thai yoga massage? Where does it come from? Who can practice it and in what cases? Questions that take hundreds of words to explain. But according to the experience of experts, the best way to answer them and perceive them, understand them is through the experiential way.
    This is exactly what we will do in beautiful Syros, in four weekends. A seminar, based on the principles of Thai yoga massage. The qualities of acceptance, selflessness, empathy, and compassion. Intended to teach, or remind those with experience, a complete full body session in the supine, stern side position. By learning and practicing techniques that relieve and unblock accumulated tensions on a physical and energetic level.
    The physiology and anatomy of the human body will become our navigator so that you understand as best as possible why we choose to use each technique. In addition, however, the lecturer, in and by his capacity as an osteopath, will introduce you to the marriage of these two therapeutic approaches which is the evolution of Thai massage nowadays.
    The seminar is addressed to beginners or those who, seeing a friend, acquaintance, family member, want to touch or “squeeze” them, or to those with experience who want to refresh their knowledge. What is certain is that after this, touching your fellow human beings will never be the same.

    Vangelis Varis
    Vangelis Varis was born in Athens, Greece, and for the last 22 years he has lived on the island of Evia. He was introduced to the oriental arts through Tai Chi and Yoga, after that it was easy to flow with the beauty of Thai Yoga massage.
    At the Sunshine House he met his first, and very special teacher and mentor, (Krishna) Takis, who has been a strong influence since 2009. Many otherm amazing teachers came on his way and shaped his practice: David Lutt, Arno L’Hermitte, Rosemary Wallach, Felicity Joy, Gabriele Schüers, Pau Castellsague, Itzhak Helman. Always a student, yet with some of them, also an assistant and therapist in their courses since 2012 around Greece and abroad (Vienna, Zurich and more). Other techniques that have greatly influenced him are OsteoThai, Chi Nei Chang, Lomi-Lomi massage, but the craniosacral rhythm has been his greatest passion and talent.
    Since 2016, deeply inspired by the scientific western approach of Osteopathy, he has begun a new journey at SICO (Swiss International College of Osteopathy), which has provided him with a unique touch in his treatments and has greatly influenced his teachings. Having successfully completed his five years of study, he has managed to combine all the therapeutic techniques, approaching holistically and uniquely each patient.
    Today he maintains his own treatment center, teaches massage seminars in Greece and abroad as well as gives therapeutic sessions.
