Program

About the yoga

Drawing from the energy of fire and water that surrounds you here in Santorini, with the volcano the Caldera and the Aegean sea, these elements will come into play during your yoga experience. From these elements be prepared for a powerful transformation.

The morning classes will be held a silent walk up to the blue and white church with views out to the Aegean Sea, absorbing the elements and feeling the sun warm up the day. A combination of Hatha flow and inversions as the week goes by.

The evening classes, more restorative and playful will be held in the yoga studio. With 3 hours of yoga over 6 days, start to unwind from your daily life and release into relaxation and feel your energy revitalize over your week with us. Any age, ability or level can enjoy this yoga practice.
