Introduction

This retreat is meant for you to discover what Balance is for you. Balance might mean choosing to stay in bed for the morning practice!!! and that is okay!
The astounding beauty of the setting in Amorgos provides a backdrop for this exploration and you might consider one of the many excursions that are available to find Balance in nature on a hiking excursion, Balance in Diet through a cooking class, Balance in experience on a local cultural tour, or literal Balance on the ocean by participating in an SUP tour.

Program

We will be exploring Balance through physical, restorative, and mindful practice.
There will be a physical practice meeting the individual needs of participants each morning.
A more restorative practice with mindfullness and sound baths will be offered later in the day before dinner.
There will be plenty of time during the day to relax, read, walk, journal, meditate, experience treatments in the spa, swim at the beach, or pool and excursions.
Participation in the yoga practices is 100% optional. This is your chance to find balance for yourself!!
