Location

The retreat will take place in Amorgos, Greece. Life on Amorgos is magical. There is literally a magnetic field underneath the island so you can feel the energy the moment you arrive. Geographically, the island is located in the southern Cycladic region, between Mykonos and Santorini. Yet, Amorgos, with its unspoiled beauty and the natural energy, makes it the perfect place for your yoga practice. Amorgos is a remarkably unspoiled island at the south-eastern edge of the Cyclades group, where traditional customs are still inextricably interwoven into a landscape as rich in beauty as in its history and culture. Originally inhabited by seafarers from Asia Minor in the fourth century BC, the island now cradles people who enjoy a lifestyle that has been shaped by a varied and dramatic past. This is a place that appears untouched by time, but where the inhabitants quietly preserve one of the best-kept secrets of the Aegean region.

There are two ports on the island, Katapola and Aegiali, where ferries, catamaran, and hydrofoils call connecting Amorgos to other islands and the mainland. There are several beaches along the coastline. In Aegiali, the beach is long and sandy, starting from the edge of the fishing village Ormos. Levroso, Psili Ammos, and Hohlakas are a 15-minute walk from the port, while they can also be reached by small boat on a regular schedule.

On the other, steep side of Amorgos, below the Byzantine Monastery of Panagia Chozoviotissa, lies the beach of Agia Anna, famous for the clear blue and turquoise waters. Here is the location where the famous movie “The Big Blue” was filmed, making Amorgos known around the world.

*7-night accommodation Twin-share or Single, in Superior room with private balcony and sea view
*Daily Yoga classes morning and afternoons
