You should land in Athens before 2 p.m. in order for you to catch the only ferry of the day from Pireaus port, Athens. The ferry takes around eight hours and is during the beautiful ocean sunset. It is a huge boat with a cinema, shops and restaurants.
You will arrive late at night on the first night and will therefore begin practice the next morning. You will enjoy classes every day, but if you would like an afternoon off to explore, this can be discussed and Wild Human can arrange this for you.
All yoga classes are between 90 and 120 minutes long, with decent meditation and pranayama practices. Fitness classes will be one hour long. You will benefit from at least two yoga teachers being around to answer questions, etc. The classes will be varied - one strong asana practice daily and one gentle and restorative class daily.
The yoga styles practiced are Hatha, Hatha Flow, Vinyasa Flow, and Yin yoga. Fitness classes will be dance, boxing, kickboxing, gym classes, and more.
All levels, shapes and sizes are welcome.
Teens are more than welcome to attend. Children are welcome to come, as child care during the yoga classes can be arranged with on-site baby sitting services at the hotel. Or come with a parter or friend to help with child care.
This retreat will take place on the beautiful and magnetic Amorgos island, at the south-eastern edge of the Cyclades group.
This remarkably unspoiled island is well known for its healing and transformative energy, dramatically beautiful landscapes, medicinal herbs that grow wildly on its hills and valleys as well as for its hypnotic blue waters.
Here, traditional customs are still inextricably interwoven into a landscape as rich in beauty as it is in history and culture. This is a place that appears untouched by time.
There are two ports on the island: of Katapola, and of Aegiali, where ferries, catamaran and hydrofoils call, connecting Amorgos with the other islands and the main land. There are also several beaches along the coast line, and especially beautiful is the long and sandy beach in Aegiali.
Amorgos is also famous worldwide for its hiking trails. There are several marked historical paths to explore the different areas of the island on foot, and old donkey routes that connect the villages of Amorgos.
Brunch and evening meal are included, along with a nutritious and delicious smoothie in the middle of the day.
You can spend your free time sun bathing, swimming, reading, snorkeling, and relaxing. Wild Human can also arrange a day trip around the island for a small additional charge of around 15 GBP per person. The small towns, blue bays and wild goats make a great day out. The landscape is like something which you surely have never seen before!
A massage is included in the price. Guests at this retreat will have full use of the hotel’s five-star spa facilities:
The spa center is open daily from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Please book your flight to arrive at Athens International Airport "Eleftherios Venizelos" (ATH).
