Greece Sept 2019, 7 Night Yoga and Meditation retreat in "Absolute Paradise"

Dive into not only your yoga practice but the tranquil waters in the beautiful surroundings of the Aegialis Resort on the Island of Amorgos in the Greek Islands.

 

 Come and join me (Craig Smith) on a 7 Night Yoga and Meditation Immersion on The Mystical Island of Amorgos amongst the Greek Islands.

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 …”

“Allow your practice to be surrounded by your breath, for it is through the breath that we come to reach and calm the mind.”

 

We will have a well spaced timetable allowing for deep immersion in the mornings with asana, pranayama and meditation before breakfast. Our Beautiful surroundings entwined with our daily yoga practice will encourage  the softening and release of the tension and stress of the mind, body complex and guide us towards the return to our essential nature (Adhi). Each days yoga practice and workshop will build on the day before taking us toward Adhi.

There will be plenty of time to 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. 2016
