Introducing ~ Haven - A 6 Night Grecian Yoga & Movement Experience with Tara Winterhalter & Nadia Carriere/ June 1st to 7th 2020
According to mythology, Amorgos was the island where Ulysses, returning to Ithaki, was attracted like a magnet by Goddess Kirki, and stayed for many years.
Some gems of the island are:
*The Monastery of Panagia Chozoviotissa, the 1000-year-old Monastery built in the cliffs 300 meters above the sea, home to the miraculous icon of Virgin Mary.
*The Monastery of Agios Georgios Valsamitis, built upon the ruins of an ancient water oracle, “Lalon Idor”.
*The picturesque capital of the island, Chora, with its 40 churches and 12 windmills
*Agia Anna, location of the movie "The Big Blue" by Luc Besson
Every year since, the same magnetic attraction beguiles wellness and yoga enthusiasts, which flock to this island, attracted by its strong revitalizing energy and the abundance of therapeutic herbs, which make of Amorgos the perfect place for a spiritual and physical uplift.
Join us for 6 nights on this miraculous island for an unplugged Grecian yoga and movement experience. We will be within walking distance from 2 beaches. The main beach of Aegiali and the beach of Levrossos. Each one around 10-15 minutes walking distance. Both accessible on foot.
We will be submersing you in various forms of movement designed to work with and unleash your own personal energies and potential. Morning and evening classes as well as two specialty workshops will fill your cup and mind.
Duo teaching with both workshops and classes will include a combination of Vinyasa Flow, 11:11 The Practice, Restorative and Contemporary Yoga practices.
Nadia and Tara’s mindful, artful and original styles will lead and guide you through experiences that will ground, balance, challenge and encourage you. Two specialty workshops will be taught during your six night escape.
