Join Alpha Yoga School on this exciting yoga holiday on Naxos Island! Still undiscovered by most foreigners, Naxos is the biggest island of the Cycladic islands. Its size means you get it all: high mountains, scenic hiking trails, authentic hilltop villages, fertile soil, white-washed chapels, sandy beaches and historical sites. Apollo’s ancient temple will welcome you as the ferry reaches Naxos’ port. This is the perfect spot for a magical sunset. Naxos has the best beaches in the Cyclades. Among the most famous are: Plaka, Agios Prokopios, Orkos, Mikri Vigla, Agia Anna and Panermos. Soak up some sun and explore a different beach every day. If you are into water sports, visit the west side of the island where you can kite surf, wind surf or just enjoy the sights.
You will stay in a traditional stone white-washed villa that evokes the ideals of Greek simplicity and luxury. Each room has either partial or panoramic sea view. Don’t just take our word for it, join us and come see for yourself.
We have hosted two retreats in this hand-picked haven that keeps us coming back. The stunning scenery, wonderful heart-warming owners, their so typically Greek hospitality, and last but not the least, the food!! Prepare yourself for a gastronomical love affair, as you savor exceptional local dishes at one of the best, most well-renowned, restaurants of Naxos Island.
Located only steps from the beach, the venue offers everything and a little more to deliver an unforgettable vacation. Ostria Inn beach hotel is ideally located for all those travelers wanting to discover the secret, unspoiled side of the island of Naxos. Its unique Cycladic architecture is surrounded by lush gardens with a flowering bougainvillea encircling the infinity swimming pool. All these make it a very special location to retreat to.
The retreat welcomes all levels of practitioners. Whether we see ourselves as beginners or advanced in our practice, we all have something to learn. We provide both support and challenge to suit each individual's needs.
Modifications and variations will be given throughout all classes and there always will be two teachers in the morning classes, one leading the class and the other offering more personal attention and hands-on adjustments. This way, irrespective of experience, all students are supported in their practice.
Vinyasa Flow Yoga is a contemporary style of yoga where students move freely from one pose to another using the breath and no two classes are ever alike. It is sometimes referred to as flow yoga or power yoga. It offers variety and freedom to choose from many poses, thus being unpredictable and creative. You will enjoy morning Vinyasa Yoga classes every other morning. Beginners are supported and more advanced practitioners are challenged. In the afternoon we will practice yin, restorative and workshop style classes.
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a precise set sequence, a dynamic form of yoga which produces heat in the body in order to purify it. Its main focus is on the breath and movement linking. It is considered a moving meditation as the students draw themselves inwards through the use of drishti, bandhas and breath.
It is not necessary for the participants to be familiar with the sequence – guided classes are also a great way to start Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga – where everyone breaths and moves together. You will practice Ashtanga every other morning.
Joanna first started practicing yoga in a studio near her house. Not missing any class, she knew that she had found her way to a beautiful practice, both on a physical and mental level. In her early years, she did ballet, modern dancing and has a degree in Economics. Since 2009 she has completed advanced studies, teacher training, workshops with first generation teachers of Ashtanga Vinyasa tradition: David Swenson, Eddie Stern, Chuck Miller, Kristina Karitinou, Rolf Naujokat, David Garrigues, Manju Jois, Regina Ehlers, Laruga Glaser, and Noah Maze. Additionally, she has completed three TTCs.
Martin started his yoga experience in 2009 once he realized that it brings him peace, relaxation and healthy balance to his stressful corporate lifestyle of then. After completing his 200 TTC with Sampoorna Yoga School in India, which gave him a solid foundation to his self-practice, he never looked back. The art of hands-on adjustments he learned with renowned Yogi Kamal Singh in his 200 hours Teacher Training Course at Tattvaa Yoga Shala Rishikesh in India. This year he completed 40 hours Teacher Training Course with David Swenson in Naples, Italy.

Book your flight to arrive at Athens Airport (ATH). Alpha Yoga School suggests you arrive Athens the day before the retreat starts because the ferries to Naxos Island leaves at 7:25 a.m. on September 22. Use the opportunity and visit Acropolis and the old town of Plaka.
From Athens (ATH) airport, there is a regular bus (X95) which can connect you with the city center. The bus is available 24 hours, 7 days a week and it runs every 30-45 minutes.
From Athens city center, take the metro (green line) to Piraeus port. The walking distance from the train station to the ferry’s departure Gate is about 5-7 minutes. Then take the ferry at 7:25 a.m. from Piraeus port on September 22. Alpha Yoga School will also create a Facebook group for all participants and connect before the departure. This way, they can arrange to travel to Naxos together.
