Introduction

Retreat to the untouched island of Amorgos, with its sparkling blue waters and ancient culture. Hike along ancient footpaths to a cliffside abby. Rent a scooter and explore the island. Lunch in a sandy seaside cafe. Swim poolside or in the blue waters. Enjoy yoga twice a day overlooking the oasis.

Program

Wake up each morning to the sparkling waters of Greece and a yoga flow to remember as you gaze over the islands. Then sit down with good company and delicious local cuisine each morning with a fresh cup of coffee or tea taking in the view. Then leisurely let your day unfold to a secluded beach dipping in the blue sea or renting a scooter to venture around the island, or hike to a monastery, or explore the local quaint town. The day is yours with your retreat lovers or on your own. In the afternoon we gather back to flow again, often with a relaxing meditation or a more concentrated workshop on developing your practice. To end the day we share the passion of Greek food and wine together. It is a seven day experience that will revitalized your soul and heart, get ready to embrace the true Greece with Euphoria.
