Alex will inspire you to go deeper in your yoga practice and to get the full benefit out of the poses using, when needed, the perfect set up for your body. The daily practice is designed in a way you will feel energised and relaxed. Be prepared to be challenged in the morning asana classes but also to let go and relax during the restorative sessions. Alex uses the Iyengar method in his classes.

Everyone is welcome, beginners as well as advanced yoga practitioners. The group will be small, perfect to improve and deepen your practice!

Amorgos is situated in the Aegean sea, in the easter part of the Cyclades island group. It’s one of the most beautiful Greek islands and our favorite one!

You may have already seen the island in the Luc Besson’s cult movie ‘The big blue”(1988). 

The island is very well preserved, protected from mass tourism and its traditions are still alive. 

We are so looking forward to make you discovered this amazing, peaceful island with its traditional white villages, beautiful landscape and the hospitality of the locals.


Amorgos is particularly renowned for scuba diving and hiking. We will have a long walk together, so don’t forget to bring good walking shoes with you!


During the retreat, we will stay in the beautiful Aegialis Hotel & Spa, situated in the northern part of Amorgos, overlooking the bay of Aegiali. You won’t get tired of the stunning view and the amazing sunsets. The hotel was awarded by CNN for being one of the top five yoga destinations in Greece. All the yoga shalas are fully equipped and overlooking the Aegean sea.

In your free time, you can enjoy their 2 sea water swimming pools, the sauna, hammam or indulge in a massage.

There’s a possibility to arrive by helicopter ;D but otherwise, the ferry boats are the best way to go to Amorgos.

Remember that Amorgos has two ports, Aegiali port in the northern part of the island (closer to the hotel) and Katapola port situated in the middle of the island (20km from the hotel). The hotel can drop you and pick you up from both ports.
