Amorgos Island

“For many island lovers, Amorgos (ah-mor-ghoss) is the jewel in the Cycladic crown. Lying well to the southeast of the main group, this exquisite island rises from the sea in a long dragon’s back of craggy mountains that is 30km from tip to toe and 800m at its highest point … There’s plenty of scope for beaching, but Amorgos is much more about compelling archaeology, Cycladic life and the outdoor world …”

There will be a well spaced timetable allowing for deep immersion in the mornings with asana, pranayama and meditation before breakfast. The Beautiful surroundings entwined with the daily yoga practice will encourage  the softening and release of the tension and stress of the mind and body complex and guide you towards your essential nature (Adhi). Each days yoga practice and workshop will build on the day before taking us toward “Adhi”. The practice will be adapted to suit each individuals needs and level.

There will be plenty of time to enjoy the local culinary delights, cooking classes, go hiking to explore the archaeological treasures of the island as well as snorkelling and scuba diving on the the islands many beautiful bays and beaches.
