Introduction

Amorgos has one of the best Yoga centres in the world, Aegialis Hotel & Spa, where this special yoga retreat will take place between 14-18 October 2022.
When you visit the island, you will know why the film Big Blue was shot here. With its steep rocks, the view of the Aegean Sea is truly breath-taking. Its crystal-clear waters and caves will enchant every visitor.
Its history is quite long and there is a certain Cycladic element in the island’s Chora and its cobbled streets. What we felt, the moment we stepped our foot on the island, was its special energy and welcoming, warm people.

Program

We will have 6 yoga sessions , one in the morning and one during the sunset. In between we will explore the island and enjoy our time in the beach.
