With the sun, the sea, nature and the Greek cuisine of the island of Amorgos, all our senses will be awakened. Yoga will be there to rhythm regularly our days rich of discoveries, it will ensure with simplicity a time of return to oneself. In 8 days, you will practice daily and everyone will go back home with a personalized program for the rest of the summer.
Yoga with Anais Joseph
Anais initially trained with Gérard Arnaud and then in the Ashtanga yoga studio Paris with Linda Murro and Gerald Disse. She is also a journalist and the editor-in-chief of the Yoga Journal France.
17 years of teaching allow her to offer a yoga that is both precise and gentle. The rigor of her placement combined with a caring intention allow everyone to own their practice.
Askas Pension, greek hospitality in Amorgos
A warm family run pension located 5 minutes walk from the sea and the village of Aegiali.
The modern single, double, triple and quadruple rooms are spread over two floors and are all
equipped with a private bathroom and a balcony or terrace. All have views onto the garden,
the sea or the villages perched on the surrounding mountains.
Amid lush green trees and vineyards, the restaurant will serve you delicious traditional greek
cuisine and local specialties. Special full healthy breakfasts have been ordered for your week
You will also get the chance to enjoy a traditional Amorgian musical evening listening to the
sounds of “rebetiko” and perhaps sing and dance with the musicians.
A brand new and magnificent roof top with a panoramic view of the sea and the mountains
where our morning and evening yoga sessions will take place.
In the heart of the Cyclades, a paradise for plants
Amorgos has, for an island, a huge variety of plants with more than 550 registered species of
flora. Somehow this narrow mountainous island, with its sun, soil and wind, its geological and
geomagnetic conditions, come together to produce a rich and beautiful microclimate. Plant
analysis show many of the naturally occurring herbs to contain an unusually high content of
essential oils giving these plant foods-medicines a full flavour, an abundant scent and
heightened healing qualities.
