YOGA TEACHERS LOVE AEGIALIS

  • My fave retreat location! I am about to lead my 4th yoga retreat at Aegialis, and cannot say enough about the beauty of the yoga studios, the unreal views, the incredible staff, and of course the magic of the island! The world is so big, and I usually don't re-visit locations, but I fell in love with Amorgos and Aegialis and have been back every year since! The food is so delish that I compare every meal all year long to the amazing fresh food of Aegialis, too! The local fish, the raw honey, the unbelievable olive oil! It's heaven! Highly recommend that you visit!
