7 days yoga retreat in Amorgos
Why yoga retreat in Amorgo
Amorgos was chosen by Yoga Yamas for its absolute serene atmosphere. This beautiful island has an intense Cycladic character. It’s not yet discovered by the mass and keeps it’s relaxed rhythm. Its beauty though is worldwide known since 1988 when the film “The Big Blue” with Jean Reno was shot here.
At this majestic island you’ll let your heart open and by the time you’ll leave it she’ll be filled with love as you will have become a member of a big family.
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
In retreats organized by Yoga Yamas, there are always two yoga instructors present. Two yoga classes will take place at the same time (both mornings and evenings) in two separate locations. This way the participants can choose each and every day, if they prefer a “mild” or a “hard” version of yoga.
Anelina Plati will be introducing you to a new yoga technique named “Bowspring” on the roof garden. Suitable for all ages, the Bowspring yoga is a curvy, dynamic, and open posture for optimal functionality and graceful movement for any body type. It awakens the natural curves of the spine and takes you away from your flat, sedentary C-curve modern posture.
Katerina Patmazoglou will perform Hatha and Vinyassa yoga by the sea.
During the retreat small workshop will take place, introducing energy management and exercises of conscious being in the present moment.
