Adventure to breathtakingly gorgeous Amorgos, the easternmost island of the Cyclades island group of Greece, for a 7 night/8 day yoga retreat with world class yoga teacher, Lily Dwyer Begg. Revitalize and awaken your senses with energizing morning Vinyasa yoga practices and replenish your body and spirit with sumptuous afternoon Restorative Practices in high-end luxurious facilities. Float out from each transformative practice to breathtaking views of sparkling sea and sun and savor the brunch or dinner awaiting you with yoga friends new and old.

Start each day with a 2-hour Vinyasa yoga workshop highlighting a unique theme and anatomical focus point - from hip openers, backbends and twists, to folds, core work, and inversions. Appropriate modifications will be given to support and encourage newer practitioners. Each practice melds a perfect balance of both effort and relaxation and will be taught with Lily’s precise and imaginative alignment cues and expert guidance. Afternoon restorative workshops will be sumptuously grounding and relaxing and open your heart’s attention to a deeper point of self inquiry that guides you to a felt space of relaxing into greater alignment with your Self.

Breakfast and dinner, included in your retreat package, are a farm to table affair, featuring traditional Greek recipes handed down from the owners’ grandparents. Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free available.

A tender-boat excursion is included in your retreat. Approximately 4 hours, the boat adventure pulls you and your yoga friends away from the crowds and into the crystal clear turquoise waters to beaches and waters inaccessible except by boat. Snorkel, paddle boat, sunbathe, swim, and enjoy peaceful time on the serene beaches of neighboring island Nikouria, a hidden little gem where you can relax and enjoy the sunshine. Additional excursions, guided hikes and tours, cooking classes, wine tasting, and essential oil distillery tours can be added to your retreat at your discretion and will compliment plenty of free time to unwind by the sea or at the spa onsite.
