Day 2: Boat crossing to Amorgos and Introduction

Departure by ferry, direction Amorgos. You will be welcomed at the pension and have time to settle into the rooms and relax after the boat trip. Walk to the splendid bay next to the hotel, feel the sand on your bare feet after the long trip, swim in the crystal-clear water and feel refreshed. The port of Aegiali is busy with many fishing boats, and some of the best tavernas and cafeterias can be found here. The locals are very friendly and hospitable. The cobbled streets, whitewashed houses and the surrounding landscape captivate with their authentic traditional atmosphere.

Afternoon yoga class on the rooftop of the pension. All participants will train together, so they will have the opportunity to get to know each other. Through breathing work and stretching, the fatigue will dissolve and everyone will enter the atmosphere of retirement.
Dinner will be served at the tavern next to the hotel. The dishes are based on the Mediterranean diet. Everything is freshly prepared and delicious! Soft summer sounds will set the pace for relaxation.

Day 3: The monastery “between sky and sea”, perched on the mountainside

The morning yoga practice will take place at 8 am on the terrace every day, overlooking the sea. Depending on the composition of the group (number of participants, levels) the course can be divided into two.

Breathwork and meditation in the cool breeze will increase awareness and give a feeling of absolute serenity!
After the practice, around 10 am, a rich brunch will be served. After brunch, you will have free time to relax or swim.

In the early afternoon, we will meet and go by minibus to the Monastery of Panagia Hozoviotisa.
Break in the village of Chora, the capital of the island. Opportunity to have a coffee and stroll through the streets with whitewashed walls.
The Hozoviotissa Monastery in Amorgos is the second oldest in Greece, built in 1017 by Alexius Comnenus I. It literally clings to the side of the cliff 300m above the sea, offering breathtaking views of the blue waters of the Aegean Sea. It was built with the aim of protecting a religious icon, dating from the year 812, against intruders. The icon is on display to the public inside the monastery. The monks, guardians of this architectural wonder, serve each visitor a glass of psimeni raki (a local liqueur) and Turkish delights. The spirituality of this place is evident from the moment you set foot there.

It is said that the beach below the monastery has the brightest blue waters that humans have seen. It is only a 40-minute walk from the monastery, but it can also be reached by a long swim from Agia Anna beach. At Agia Anna beach we will have the opportunity to rest, swim and have a snack. A light yoga practice with meditation will end this beautiful day, facing the sunset...

Day 4: Discovery day

Morning yoga practice will take place at 8 a.m.

Today, everyone chooses their activities at their own pace; relax on Aegiali beach next to the hotel, enjoy the calm atmosphere, the sun and the sea, or explore the island.

There are many wonderful choices available to you: visiting the picturesque villages of Amorgos, diving, hiking, donkey rides, ceramic lessons, discovering archaeological sites and much more ...
The village of Aegiali is the starting point for many easy hiking trails, passing ancient sites, secluded beaches, tiny chapels, and magnificent sea views.

Amorgos is surrounded by a blue and turquoise sea, the waters that gave the name to the film "The Big Blue" by Luc Besson. Mass tourism has not reached the island, however; you can find your own little private beach there where you can be totally alone.

Day 5: Bees & Flora of Amorgos or Traditional village visit & short hike

Morning yoga practice will take place at 8 a.m

After brunch and some free time, explore the magic of honey production by visiting a local, small scale beehive farm. A short walk from the village of Langada, the beehives are located at a small plateau overlooking the bay of Aegiali. During the short walk, half on a ciment way, half on a traditional path, to reach the beehives, you will discover the beautiful surrounding nature and the local plants. Once on the spot, our beekeepers will provide you with protective equipment and introduce you to their work, explaining the process of honey production and its local tradition.

Under the trees and in a very special environment you will be able to taste locally produced honey, but also Propolis and other products made out of the beehives.

Day 6: Relaxation day with optional excursions

After the morning practice and brunch, you are free to relax and choose how to spend your day, with different options beside the beach:

CULTURAL GUIDED TOUR: THE SECRETS OF AMORGOS (culture, gastronomy, local meetings)



Day 7: Nikouria, the virgin island

Morning yoga practice will take place at 8 a.m.

As the retreat comes to an end, practice will introduce techniques on how to bring what is learned to the mat!
We will learn how, everything that has been learned, felt, practiced and cultivated on the yoga mat can be interwoven into everyday life to bring fluidity, clarity, and a sense of calm and peace.
After practice around 10 a.m., a rich brunch will be served.

In the afternoon, we will meet to go by minibus to Agios Pavlos, 5 km from the port of Aegiali. There we will take a small transfer boat to Nikouria, a small uninhabited island.
Nikouria is famous for its 3 unspoiled sandy beaches with such calm and clear water, which seems to be transparent! Feeling Robinson Crusoe on a desert island, we will have the opportunity to leave behind all thoughts, all worries and feel a real feeling of serenity!
Meditation and yoga practice in the late afternoon.

In the evening, gathering and sharing in a warm and family atmosphere. The last dinner will be served in our favorite tavern next to the hotel. We will exchange our views and impressions on the experience of the past week.

Day 8: Everything is one!

Morning yoga practice will take place at 8 a.m. All participants join a class and share their love for yoga and life through body and mind exercises.

After practice around 10 a.m., a rich brunch will be served.
