Yoga retreat in Amorgos, Greece October 2017.


  • Aegialis Hotel and Spa Amorgos Greece (map)

Join me for a blissful week in my new favourite yoga spot in the entire world. There is something truly magical about the island of Amorgos and while. a little off the beaten track, worth every idyllic moment spent in paradise.

I will be assisted by one of our first dharmaKaya teacher training graduates, Julia Hecht.

 

Julia is a is certificated 500 hrs DharmaKaya – teacher since 2016.
Julia teaches & experiences yoga not primarily as a sport- exercise, but as an art and science of living, which ultimately lead into meditation.
Julia studied western & eastern philosophy, psychology, cultural studies and media, works as a picture editor in a Munich based newspaper, and is alwaysinterested in techniques, which can help us to improve a more balanced lifestyle.
Apart from her yoga – teacher- training she passed through buddhist vipassana – meditation retreat and also loves surfing.
 

Situated on a cliff overlooking a secluded beach you will find the 5 star Aegialis hotel where you will spend 7 glorious nights. Wake up each day to spectacular views of the sea, practice yoga in the newly built shala, again, overlooking spectacular views of the island and the sea, followed by a breakfast buffet of fresh organic ingredients from the island itself, The rest of the day is yours to enjoy on the beach, in the village, relaxing in the spa or by the pool. The evening begins with a calming and purifying sunset yoga session followed by dinner, again at the buffet table hosting an incredible selection of vegetarian and vegan options.
