It was an unbelievably great teacher training and I can hardly wait to be there for further trainings (e.g. the 300h teacher training). The teacher is really great and manages to exemplify the yoga philosophy and at the same time to be firmly anchored in the "modern" world. A very inspiring person! I really enjoyed the asana classes and meditations. I learned so much and was able to build up a lot of physical strength and flexibility in the 3 weeks. The course content was very well structured and built on each other very well. I thought it was great that a lot of emphasis was placed on the philosophy. The island and the location of the hotel are an absolute dream! Every day the view of the sea and the opportunity for a short break at the beach. Just great! The food was really great too. Very versatile, very healthy and something for everyone. With learning content on Ayurveda and food meditations, the meal became a new experience 🙂 The hotel and the staff were very special for me. Beautiful rooms, great shalas, a great spa area. Very modern, clean, cozy and on a very high level! From experience, one often expects a large 5 star hotel to be impersonal. Not applicable here! The hotel is a family business. The family is so nice, warm and authentic. The staff were always super friendly, funny and in a good mood. It made you feel at home!

My 200 hours teacher training at Aegialis school of yoga in Amorgos was one of the best experiences of my life and joining this course was surely the best decision I have ever made. It is life changing, physically, mentally and spiritually. The content of the teacher training was perfect, a nice balance between asana practice and theory (philosophy and anatomy). The stunning island of Amorgos and the facilities made everything even better, the hotel is amazing, beautiful rooms and spa, such a peaceful place with the kindest staff. The views are breathtaking everywhere and the food, vegetarian based, is also great. I am eternally grateful to Miriam, the primary teacher, I learned so much from her. She is truly amazing ! Thanks to her I learned so much more about yoga but also about myself. Another huge thanks to the Aegialis Hotel and Spa family who made me feel at home during the whole course. You are part of my heart forever.

As I know and love the island of Amorgos for a very long time, for me there couldn't have been a better place to do the training. From the first moment I really enjoyed every single minute. The training was excellent! Challenging and extremely educational on a wonderful way which is absolutely enriching. The training not only teaches you excellently to become a yoga teacher, but it also provides a deep experience for yourself. One of the most important experiences in my life. The extremely friendly and patient nature of Miriam, who is an absolutely passionated and wonderful yoga teacher, was besides the very interesting content and her so nice way of teaching practically as theoretically, the most valuable thing in the entire training! Thank you so much again for every thing you gave to and shared with us. The hotel is an island within the island. It's own little cosmos, in which you feel safe and just good. It is a family business run by a very personable and hospitable family. We were served with delicious vegetarian food, prepared from fresh vegetables from the hotel's own gardens. The entire team was extremely friendly and always took care of our well-being. Thanks again to all of you! The island of Amorgos itself is a treasure in the Aegean Sea. Fantastic and beautiful! Untouched nature and deep turquoise-green-blue sea as far as your eyes can see. This pleasure is rounded off with the wonderful sounds of nature, such as the sound of the sea, singing winds and animal sounds.

The Yoga Teacher Training with Aegialis School of Yoga was one of the best decisions in my life so far. I learned so much, not only about yoga, also about myself. Amorgos is a beautiful calm island with such a good energy. I felt super safe during the whole time at Aegialis hotel and Spa and the facilities there are so nice and not to forget the breathtaking views. Also the food (vegetarian meals) is delicious. All teachers did a real good job and taught us a lot. I'm beyond grateful for Miriam, the primary teacher. I felt perfectly guided from day one and she knows so much about yoga, the yoga philosophy, asanas, yogic diet and much more, and she shared all her knowledge with us. A huge thanks also to the whole Aegialis Hotel team, you all made this experience super special and always gave me the feeling to be part of your family, which is just amazing!

So many hotels worldwide are doing similar retreats but usually people leave disappointed because of the quality, hygiene or the results... For anyone interested in Yoga retreat, teaching & training with an official certificate of 200h training, where everything is perfect from the dietary food ( which is organically grown in the hotel territory ) to the highest quality training & atmosphere- I wanted to HIGHLY recommend Aegiali in Amorgos Island, It was the best decision & Investment I have ever made!!!

The whole experience was amazing, without a doubt one of the best and most life changing I have had so far. Aegialis Hotel and Spa is a wonderful place. The island is the main reason why I came, Amorgos is so peaceful and energizing, and I really feel lucky to have lived there during the 24 days of YTT. Added to the beauty of the Nature, Aegialis Hotel and Spa created lovely facilities. The Spa is beautiful and perfect for relaxing the body / mind after the classes. Everywhere on the Hotel you have big windows to enjoy the amazing view on the sea and the sound of the waves in the background if you pay attention. The shalas are the most beautiful places I have ever practiced yoga. And last but not least, the food is delicious yet healthy, I really miss it now ! Miriam knows so much, Thank you for everything ! You made this experience so amazing 🙂 and I really felt safe and guided the whole time. From day 1, I fully trusted her as well as the other teachers. During the YTT I have learned so so much, and I have grown so much. It is an intense training, but so worth it, I truly believe everyone should do a YTT in their lives !

Doing the yoga teacher training was one of the most transformative experiences of my life. Not only did I come a very long way in my physical yoga practice, I learned such a huge amount about the philosophy of yoga, the theory of anatomy and a yogic lifestyle that will stay with me throughout my life. Miriam is a fantastic teacher with deep knowledge about yoga, the yoga philosophy and a yogic lifestyle which she teaches in such a passionate and yet gentle manner that is is easy to understand and makes you curious to always learn more. Christos, the anatomy teacher has a fantastic knowledge about anatomy which really helps you understand yoga postures in more detail. The hotel facilities are beautiful. The rooms are clean, comfortable and luxurious. The island surroundings are beautiful, and it is not an exaggeration to say I felt like I was in paradise. The food is nutritious and delicious, prepared according to a yogic lifestyle. There is a huge variety for breakfast lunch and dinner and the chefs are also happy to accommodate special requests. The hotel staff are not only professional and helpful, they are warm, friendly and welcoming and make you feel like you're in a home away from home. The hotel owners Stammatis and Irene made us feel like part of their family our whole stay and did so many small, beautiful gestures like decorations our rooms for Christmas, baking a cake for a birthday and providing a wonderful last night full of violin and traditional Greek singing, all of which was done genuinely from the heart. I could not recommend this teacher training any higher. It was a wonderful experience I will always remember. Thank you all xx

I just loved everything about my YTT training at Aegialis! I can honestly say that it was a life changing experience for me. Gaining an understanding of what yoga actually is, spending weeks with like minded, kind and inspiring girls. Being under Miriam’s incredible guidance as she shared her practice with us. I feel so grateful for Miriam, she is an incredible YTT trainer, patient and with so much knowledge to give. I feel especially in a time of Covid when so much felt hopeless and a little frustrating, coming to Amorgos island was like a breath of fresh air, an absolutely beautiful Hidden gem. Hiking , swimming at the beach and pool , yoga, delicious vegetarian food, teas chatting to the girls, amazing sauna sessions and massages with Christos at the spa, literally all my favourite things combined in a few weeks . I hope to be back to Aegialis. I miss it

Everything! Myriam, Christos and Stamatis are excellent teachers. I could not imagine i would learn as much as I did. The staff on too was attentive to every details. We were spoiled by the location, the food, the learning anatomy and philosophy. I feel my practice is transformed and I have progressed more than I would imagine. And the hotel facilities are the cherry on the cake.

I highly recommend the YTT at Aegialis. It was an amazing experience who make me grow in my yoga practice and personal development. The training experience was really complete. I learned so much from the teachers. Miriam, our principal teacher is an excellent teacher we can see that she is really passionate by what she is doing. I learn so much in yoga philosophy and I get more flexibility with the asanas practice. Samatis, Cristos, Eleni are also incredible, knowledgeable and lovely teachers ! In general, all the Team from the hotel was always here for us in order to make us pass a beautiful stay. The hotel have a wonderful sea view. It was a pleasure to wake up in a beautiful room, seeing the sea from the balcony, listening to the waves and the birds ( like a dream ). The sea is just at 15 min walking so you can easily go for a swim at the lunch break. There is also a Spa to get relax at the end of the day ! On top of this, the food was absolutely delicious and healthy. I really enjoyed my stay with all the Aegialis Family, i hope to come back soon !

The stay at Aegialis Hotel & Spa was an absolute dream and an experience to remember for the whole life. The training itself was a huge benefit, both for the physical body and also for the mind. We learned a lot about the yoga philosophy and for me these information are helpful for every part of my life. Miriam is an amazing teacher, always furthering her students individually and finding a really nice way to make all the information understandable and accessible. And also all the other teachers and all other people at the hotel, who made the stay so special, are so welcoming and friendly people. So there is no other option than feeling like home during this special experience. And of course, having a spa and such amazing healthy food during a time the body has to work that hard, is a really special thing. So thanks again to the whole team and I hope to have the chance to visit you soon again.

What a magical and unforgettable experience. From the moment I arrived to the moment I left it was perfect. The hotel staff, waiters/waitresses, owners, spa staff and of course the amazing teachers did everything to make me feel at home. It was really home away from home. You get to know everyone personally and feel part of the family. They work around the clock to make sure each individuals stay is perfect and memorable. The Hotel itself is beautiful and the view from the rooms is breath taking. They have thought of every detail- every part of the hotel is a photo opportunity. The overall training experience was great, I learnt so much. The schedule was very balanced, and we also got days off which was really nice as they had arranged excursions for us around the Island. If you go on this course make sure you go on the excursions they are worth it- just bring your sun cream. The days are very meaty, filled with learning lots of new material and personal studying. But Miriam was very good at checking in with the class to see how we were feeling on a daily basis and she always made sure there was a good balance overall. Miriam is a fantastic teacher. The way Miriam teaches and explains the theory/practical is amazing. I was blown away by her teaching techniques and how she kept the whole class engaged throughout. She is also very patient and willing to offer support where needed. So passionate, knowledgeable and very inspiring. She is a superwoman!!! The Anatomy sessions taught by Christos were great. Christos is funny and very knowledgeable. We also were given business classes where Stamatis took us through some great marketing points on how to set up your own retreats which I found very useful. The facilities at the hotel were great. I loved it! The food was delicious and so tasty, a special thank you to Hussain (Chef), Arta (restaurant manager) and all the amazing staff for always providing us so much variety of food, welcoming us with a smile and keeping us fed throughout. The Spa was so peaceful and beautiful, a lovely place to relax after a day of studying.

I had an amazing time during my 200 YTT in Amorgos and can wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone. The level of the asana classes is very well suited for beginners to intermediate practitioners, but also advanced students will certainly have fun as Miriam always offers a lot of variations. You can really see the progress you made after these 3 weeks. Furthermore I found the Pranayama and yoga philosophy very inspiring, although this was all new to me. Miriam is such a passionate teacher and she is very good with words and explaining. She always took a lot of time to answer any questions and lead interesting group discussions. So I really want to thank Miriam for her amazingly inspiring words and her passion, it is infectious! Also Kaliovi's help and Yin Yoga classes I enjoyed a lot. You just have to love her for her kindness, humbleness and aura of unconditional love! The yoga shalas are all beautiful with gorgeous views! We could even see the turtles swimming in the sea from the shala :)) I was super positively surprised with the equipment provided: Every student had their own yoga mat (which we were allowed to take home at the end - thank you!!), 3 blocks, a strap, 2 polsters, a blanket, a prana accupressure mat, a towel,… and after every class the space was cleaned, all props organized and the towels changed. Also we were given the chance to practice with the dharma wheel and we tried aerial yoga, walking meditation on the beach, rooftop yoga, trataka, jala neti,... What added a lot to my absolutely amazing experience with this YTT was the flair of this hotel. By the end we all felt like belonging to the big, warm family which is the core of this hotel. The staff were more than super helpful and friendly - they remembered every name and made you feel at home 🙂 Special thanks here to Arta, Mariana, Poppy and Celia. Moreover I just loved to view of Aegialis bay (which can be reached within 15 minutes by foot and is the most beautiful beach I have been to, such clear water!) from the room, the pool, the shala, the dining room :)) What also gave me a lot of strength and inspiration is the hotel area: there are flowers, little archways and so much greece vibes - seeing this every day on the way from the room to the shala always lifted my mood even more.

This teacher training absolutely exceeded my expectations! Amenities are wonderful, especially Shala, it has really good energy (whole island actually has it) and despite this is a 4 star hotel it definitely doesn't feel impersonal, too classy or too "shallow" - just the opposite, you can feel that is a family run hotel and that every single employee is putting 100% effort to make you feel as comfortable and satisfied as possible. Owners are amazing people <3 Also swimming pool is very nice, spa is big, clean, and on top everything is extremely instagramable (no filter needed ;)) Food is also amazing, I am vegan but also for non vegetarians, every one can find something on the menu, all food is prepared fresh, local and typical Greek dishes. If you fancy something else they have a good selection of raw bars, smoothies etc... What surprised me the most in a good way is how amazing Miriam was as a teacher. So much knowledge, patience, calm and stillness I saw only with few yogis. She was such an inspiration and reason for us to continue with journey, day by day, with every sore muscle:) Her willingness to help is beyond excpectations. I will miss her practice the most:( All other teachers were also amazing, can't thank them enough. We planned to do only 100hours but after our training we decided to come back to do another 100h. I will miss the rest of the group though, we were extremely lucky to have such a nice supporting group full of wonderfull ladies <3

This was a truly magical experience. The island of Amorgos offers the ideal setting to immerse yourself in the training and delve into the beautiful surroundings. Alongside the classes, we were able to enjoy the nature with many breathtaking hikes and dips in the ocean. We were completely spoiled by the facilities at the hotel - many shalas with stunning views which we could use to practise, access to the spa and gym, and very comfortable rooms. The food was delicious every single day. The chef always added variety and we had a lot to choose from for each meal. I really noticed a difference after eating at the hotel for a few days - my body felt so good and energised! A very special aspect of this course was the staff. They always went above and beyond to ensure we were happy and comfortable, and their attention to detail was on another level. They got to know each one of us personally and these connections made me feel part of the beautiful Aegialis family. The location definitely makes this course unique, however it wouldn’t be the same without the guidance of the primary teacher Miriam. The morning pranayama, meditation and asana practises were a definite highlight for me - I have never got out of bed so willingly and excited to start the day! It was amazing to feel so clearly how much this aspect of my practise developed with the daily consistency this course provides. Miriam is also extremely knowledgeable about yoga philosophy and her classes showed me new perspectives and ways to experience life. She is very open and clear, and I appreciate how she encouraged us to find our own way and stay authentic as we start a new venture as not only practitioners, but also teachers of yoga. I am so happy I chose this course, this place and these people. I will think fondly of Amorgos forever
