Spring is a time to cleanse and open to new possibilities. The island of Sicily and Aphrodite/Venus’ mystical presence there will inspire us.
Led by certified yoga instructor Clio Mallin, the host of Experience Sicily’s June 2022 Yoga in Sicily tour, this practice session is designed to help you release stagnant energy and heaviness and clear out blockages through warming poses. You’ll feel rejuvenated through the inspiration of the season, and your practice will invite in fresh energy so you can flourish.
Allison Scola, owner/curator of Experience Sicily will discuss the goddess Aphrodite–how she rose from the sea to inspire love–for others and oneself–and a passion for life.
We suggest you have a yoga mat, a strap, and blocks (a stack of books will do too!) for this practice.
Meet Your Yoga Instructor Clio Mallin
Clio Mallin has a deep appreciation for beauty and heart-based qualities. She began her yoga journey in 2008, and over time found deep flexibility and healing from injury through yoga. She earned her certification in 2015 has been teaching Hatha yoga professionally in her hometown of Philadelphia since 2016. As a former non-profit communications professional, Clio knows that life can be stressful, and it is precisely in those moments that we most need to connect to our breath, our hearts, and our bodies.
Clio is deeply grateful for the practice of yoga in her life and is honored to guide students in a spirited and strong alignment-based practice. Her students appreciate her natural warmth, nurturing qualities, and soothing voice. The scope of her teaching extends from mindfulness meditation practices to gentle, beginner, and mixed level classes and restorative workshops that encourage connection to the breath for deep relaxation to assisting advanced students undergoing teacher training. She also conducts office-based corporate yoga workshops and mindfulness and stress-reduction sessions.
Outside the studio, Clio loves the outdoors, especially the ocean, creating and appreciating art, cooking healthy meals, and dreaming of Italy, where she has studied, worked, and lived.
