About This Event

Blue waters set against crisp white architecture. Wake to the warmth of the sun as you look out over the Aegean sea. Salute the sun and moon from the panoramic rooftop while listening to the sounds of the sea.

Amorgos is picture-perfect Greek island. From traditional villages to stunning beaches, this secluded island is everything you imagine of when you dream of a Greek holiday. During your retreat, you will have the opportunity to experience the island through various tours and activities. These excursions will give you a chance to discover what makes Amorgos so spectacular. Whether you are learning traditional Greek dance moves, exploring the underwater world of Greece, or hiking through local villages, tours and activities are a great way to make the most of your time in Greece.

“I have been practicing yoga for several years, but it was when I met Michele Rath, owner and instructor, at Powerhouse Fitness and Yoga two years ago that I started seeing the body/mind results I desired. Michele’s classes challenge me with a variety of poses each week and offer modifications or options to take the pose further, which has helped improve my practice immensely. New props, and new uses with the usual props, keep the classes fun and different, and the music is always great and keeps me motivated. I like that the studio is a friendly environment, and I have met and enjoyed working out with people of all ages and abilities. My daughter enjoys joining me when she is home from college, and agrees the classes are great!” ~Jody W.

Venue Highlights

This beautifully designed, family-run hotel is nestled on the cliffs of a quiet and peaceful Greek Island. Conveniently located near the bay and within walking distance of sandy beaches. Every room has simple, elegant decor and boasts views of the sea. The hundreds of reviews comment that the staff is incredibly friendly, welcoming, and super helpful and most guests leave feeling like they have made new friends. Their chefs provide healthy, gourmet meals that incorporate fresh organic produce from their garden. They offer full services, from spa to gym to pool. Come and enjoy an authentic Greek experience.

Accommodations

Most retreats include one-to-two daily yoga classes. One class takes place in the morning, either just before or just after breakfast. After the first class and meal, you have free time to explore, relax, or take part in optional add-on activities. Lunch (if included in your retreat) will take place midday, during this free time. There is then, usually, an afternoon class followed by dinner. Occasionally some teachers choose to offer an evening restorative class or group gathering after dinner as well.

In addition, there is usually one dedicated “excursion day” in which we do not have scheduled yoga classes. This is a day for people to take advantage of some of the more involved tour and excursion offerings and is always a lot of fun!

Directions

Included in the retreat is a shuttle from the local port on Amorgos Island to the retreat center. There are many ways to come to this island and this will depend on your travel plans. Once you register, you will receive complete information about the airports and the ferry options that will bring you to your destination.
