BEND FLY GROW YOGA RETREAT 2019
According to Greek mythology, Amorgos was the island where Ulysses was drawn like a magnet by Goddess Kirki and stayed for many years. Every year now, the same magnetic attraction captivates Yoga, health, and wellness enthusiasts, attracted by the island’s strong revitalizing energy, the abundance of therapeutic herbs, and of course the most breathtaking views, which contribute to making Amorgos the perfect place for both a spiritual and physical rejuvenation.
Come and join Alex & Ahmed for a week filled with Yoga, growth and adventure. This experience is open to all levels, whether you're interested in starting a yoga practice or longing for growth within your practice (think meditation, flexibility and inversion workshops!!). Join us for daily yoga & workshops, memory-filled excursions, amazing organic fare and a one-of-a-kind vacation - all set on the breathtaking island of Amorgos.
