Retreat: Amorgos Greece with Sue Chopping - October 05 - 12, 2023
Join Sue at the Aegialis Hotel and Spa where the warm welcome, hospitality and unique views offer the perfect setting for our Yoga Retreat. Nestled between two of the most beautiful beaches on the island and built in the Cycladic traditional architectural style it is an oasis for body and spirit. This is open to all levels of yoga experience.
Amorgos is the most easterly of the Cycladic islands and lies between Naxos and Astypalia. The 1000year old Byzantine Monastery Hozoviotissa rises out of the 'big blue' on a thousand foot cliff, which is in itself worth the visit to Amorgos, it is stunning!
This is where Luc Bresson chose to film his cult movie 'Le Grand Bleu'. The Monastery of St George Valsamitis, built on the ruins of an ancient water oracle dedicated to the God Apollo, the excavated ancient city of Minoa and the traditional capital of Hora add to the magic of this island.
We will start each day with a 'slow flow' yoga practice, followed by a sumptuous breakfast. You will then be free to swim and explore the island. The afternoon practice will be restorative and include Yoga Nidra, a guided relaxation. One morning will be free to give you an opportunity to take a longer walk or explore the island.
The Aegialis Hotel and Spa will offer us food fit for the gods from their own garden and the 'Lalon Thalasso Spa and Beauty Centre' will soothe tired muscles.
Amorgos is a dramatic and mountainous island and there are seven marked historical paths to explore different areas of the the island on foot and the views are absolutely stunning! Nearby our hotel we can walk to the picturesque village of Lagada where the herbalist Vangelis and his wife offer herbs and therapy with a kindness that will soothe your soul.
