Meet yoga retreat founder and yoga instructor Katerina Tsiplacis
Katerina Tsiplacis is a British half Greek ex-island girl having previously lived on the beautiful island of Barbados for four years. Previously working within the corporate world and traveling around the Caribbean and Americas, she realized that this wasn't her direction in life. However, meeting so many interesting individuals, this experience proved to be life changing. From discussing meditation yoga and with politicians and ambassadors to deepening her yoga practice, spending time in Trinidad with Hindu gurus, to meditation with the Rastas, she truly found herself and the true soulful side of the Caribbean. Nature, grounded and whole, she integrated this as a total way of life and decided to take a leap of faith and left the business world to teach.
Completing her RYT 200 (Semperviva) Kate specializes in yoga for surfers, but also teaches yoga to all levels to a wide variety of individuals from complete beginners to advanced. It's all about connecting within and feeling wonderful.
Kate teaches Vinyasa, Hatha and Yin based yoga practice, more Vinyasa focused and moving fluidly with the breath and creating a flow both inward and outward experience which will leave you refreshed and relaxed and as Kate says, give you that Greek island feeling blended with the Caribbean. Kate is also one of the few instructors to have also qualified In SUP specific yoga and a SUP paddle yoga session will be included in your itinerary! Take a look a video of her teaching SUP last summer in Galicia, Spain for Artsurf (RipCurl):
We will enable the Caribbean and its magic to truly relax you internally and externally to steer you into letting go and to simply take you to another level.
Breathe, flow. Let it go.
