Introduction

Join us for a yoga holiday in the Cyclades island of Amorgos, one of the most beautiful and untouched island in Greece.
We will have a week of yoga with 2 daily classes (in the tradition of BKS Iyengar), a lot of free time to relax and/or explore the island.
Alex will inspire you to go deeper in your yoga practice and to get the full benefit out of the poses using the perfect set up for your body. The daily practice is designed in a way you will feel energised and relaxed. Be prepared to be challenged in the morning asana classes but also to let go and relax during the restorative sessions.
