Silver Island and Shelf Making

Every now and then it is good to do something out of one’s comfort zone. So with that mantra in mind this year I did just that. My sister had mentioned going to pick olives on Silver Island in Greece. Helena, our Acupuncturist here in Ananda Centre, is good friends with the owners. So it was out of my comfort zone but not totally scarey!

Rob

I was quite excited to learn that we had a resident seal living around the island when I first arrived in 2012. Keen on making him part of the family I felt that naming him would be the next logical step and why not introduce a bit of my own language in my new foreign home.

The birth of Silver Island Yoga

Silver Island has always held a very special place in my heart. As a young girl, our family would spend long wonderful summers on the island. Thinking back, my memories are ones of absolute freedom, the engulfing sound of thousands of united cicadas, the silky feel of the turquoise sea with the golden sun on my skin, the feeling of never wanting to leave and the tears that fell when we got on the boat and waved good bye.
