WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY

  • The whole experience was amazing, without a doubt one of the best and most life changing I have had so far. Aegialis Hotel and Spa is a wonderful place. The island is the main reason why I came, Amorgos is so peaceful and energizing, and I really feel lucky to have lived there during the 24 days of YTT. Added to the beauty of the Nature, Aegialis Hotel and Spa created lovely facilities. The Spa is beautiful and perfect for relaxing the body / mind after the classes. Everywhere on the Hotel you have big windows to enjoy the amazing view on the sea and the sound of the waves in the background if you pay attention. The shalas are the most beautiful places I have ever practiced yoga. And last but not least, the food is delicious yet healthy, I really miss it now !

    Miriam knows so much, Thank you for everything ! You made this experience so amazing ? and I really felt safe and guided the whole time. From day 1, I fully trusted her as well as the other teachers. During the YTT I have learned so so much, and I have grown so much. It is an intense training, but so worth it, I truly believe everyone should do a YTT in their lives !

  • My 200 hours teacher training at Aegialis school of yoga in Amorgos was one of the best experiences of my life and joining this course was surely the best decision I have ever made. It is life changing, physically, mentally and spiritually. The content of the teacher training was perfect, a nice balance between asana practice and theory (philosophy and anatomy). The stunning island of Amorgos and the facilities made everything even better, the hotel is amazing, beautiful rooms and spa, such a peaceful place with the kindest staff. The views are breathtaking everywhere and the food, vegetarian based, is also great. I am eternally grateful to Miriam, the primary teacher, I learned so much from her. She is truly amazing ! Thanks to her I learned so much more about yoga but also about myself. Another huge thanks to the Aegialis Hotel and Spa family who made me feel at home during the whole course. You are part of my heart forever.

  • It was an unbelievably great teacher training and I can hardly wait to be there for further trainings (e.g. the 300h teacher training). The teacher is really great and manages to exemplify the yoga philosophy and at the same time to be firmly anchored in the "modern" world. A very inspiring person! I really enjoyed the asana classes and meditations. I learned so much and was able to build up a lot of physical strength and flexibility in the 3 weeks. The course content was very well structured and built on each other very well. I thought it was great that a lot of emphasis was placed on the philosophy. The island and the location of the hotel are an absolute dream! Every day the view of the sea and the opportunity for a short break at the beach. Just great! The food was really great too. Very versatile, very healthy and something for everyone. With learning content on Ayurveda and food meditations, the meal became a new experience 🙂 The hotel and the staff were very special for me. Beautiful rooms, great shalas, a great spa area. Very modern, clean, cozy and on a very high level! From experience, one often expects a large 5 star hotel to be impersonal. Not applicable here! The hotel is a family business. The family is so nice, warm and authentic. The staff were always super friendly, funny and in a good mood. It made you feel at home!

  • As I know and love the island of Amorgos for a very long time, for me there couldn't have been a better place to do the training. From the first moment I really enjoyed every single minute. The training was excellent! Challenging and extremely educational on a wonderful way which is absolutely enriching. The training not only teaches you excellently to become a yoga teacher, but it also provides a deep experience for yourself. One of the most important experiences in my life. The extremely friendly and patient nature of Miriam, who is an absolutely passionated and wonderful yoga teacher, was besides the very interesting content and her so nice way of teaching practically as theoretically, the most valuable thing in the entire training! Thank you so much again for every thing you gave to and shared with us. The hotel is an island within the island. It's own little cosmos, in which you feel safe and just good. It is a family business run by a very personable and hospitable family. We were served with delicious vegetarian food, prepared from fresh vegetables from the hotel's own gardens. The entire team was extremely friendly and always took care of our well-being. Thanks again to all of you! The island of Amorgos itself is a treasure in the Aegean Sea. Fantastic and beautiful! Untouched nature and deep turquoise-green-blue sea as far as your eyes can see. This pleasure is rounded off with the wonderful sounds of nature, such as the sound of the sea, singing winds and animal sounds.

  • The Yoga Teacher Training with Aegialis School of Yoga was one of the best decisions in my life so far. I learned so much, not only about yoga, also about myself. Amorgos is a beautiful calm island with such a good energy. I felt super safe during the whole time at Aegialis hotel and Spa and the facilities there are so nice and not to forget the breathtaking views. Also the food (vegetarian meals) is delicious. All teachers did a real good job and taught us a lot. I'm beyond grateful for Miriam, the primary teacher. I felt perfectly guided from day one and she knows so much about yoga, the yoga philosophy, asanas, yogic diet and much more, and she shared all her knowledge with us. A huge thanks also to the whole Aegialis Hotel team, you all made this experience super special and always gave me the feeling to be part of your family, which is just amazing!

  • So many hotels worldwide are doing similar retreats but usually people leave disappointed because of the quality, hygiene or the results... For anyone interested in Yoga retreat, teaching & training with an official certificate of 200h training, where everything is perfect from the dietary food ( which is organically grown in the hotel territory ) to the highest quality training & atmosphere- I wanted to HIGHLY recommend Aegiali in Amorgos Island, It was the best decision & Investment I have ever made!!!"

  • Doing the yoga teacher training was one of the most transformative experiences of my life. Not only did I come a very long way in my physical yoga practice, I learned such a huge amount about the philosophy of yoga, the theory of anatomy and a yogic lifestyle that will stay with me throughout my life. Miriam is a fantastic teacher with deep knowledge about yoga, the yoga philosophy and a yogic lifestyle which she teaches in such a passionate and yet gentle manner that is is easy to understand and makes you curious to always learn more. Christos, the anatomy teacher has a fantastic knowledge about anatomy which really helps you understand yoga postures in more detail. The hotel facilities are beautiful. The rooms are clean, comfortable and luxurious. The island surroundings are beautiful, and it is not an exaggeration to say I felt like I was in paradise. The food is nutritious and delicious, prepared according to a yogic lifestyle. There is a huge variety for breakfast lunch and dinner and the chefs are also happy to accommodate special requests. The hotel staff are not only professional and helpful, they are warm, friendly and welcoming and make you feel like you're in a home away from home. The hotel owners Stammatis and Irene made us feel like part of their family our whole stay and did so many small, beautiful gestures like decorations our rooms for Christmas, baking a cake for a birthday and providing a wonderful last night full of violin and traditional Greek singing, all of which was done genuinely from the heart. I could not recommend this teacher training any higher. It was a wonderful experience I will always remember. Thank you all xx

  • Everything! Myriam, Christos and Stamatis are excellent teachers. I could not imagine i would learn as much as I did. The staff on too was attentive to every details. We were spoiled by the location, the food, the learning anatomy and philosophy. I feel my practice is transformed and I have progressed more than I would imagine. And the hotel facilities are the cherry on the cake.

  • This YTT in Amorgos was nothing short of amazing! The depth of knowledge and practice shown and taught by Miriam was truly wonderful. She was an overall great teacher in asana and philosophy, and I feel I have learned so much to apply to my daily life! The facilities at the Aegailis Hotel and Spa were absolutely beautiful. It was clear the the entire staff/team made an effort to make our stay as relaxing as possible. Not only was the staff very friendly but many people went above and beyond to make us feel loved and welcomed for out entire stay. The overall experience of the 200 hr YTT, was unforgettable, and an experience I will carry with me throughout my life. I hope to some day return and experience this wonderful island again! I can not say thank you enough to the entire staff and my teachers!! With love Sydney

  • I highly recommend the YTT at Aegialis. It was an amazing experience who make me grow in my yoga practice and personal development. The training experience was really complete. I learned so much from the teachers. Miriam, our principal teacher is an excellent teacher we can see that she is really passionate by what she is doing. I learn so much in yoga philosophy and I get more flexibility with the asanas practice. Stamatis, Cristos, Eleni are also incredible, knowledgeable and lovely teachers ! In general, all the Team from the hotel was always here for us in order to make us pass a beautiful stay. The hotel have a wonderful sea view. It was a pleasure to wake up in a beautiful room, seeing the sea from the balcony, listening to the waves and the birds ( like a dream ). The sea is just at 15 min walking so you can easily go for a swim at the lunch break. There is also a Spa to get relax at the end of the day ! On top of this, the food was absolutely delicious and healthy. I really enjoyed my stay with all the Aegialis Family, i hope to come back soon !

  • I just loved everything about my YTT training at Aegialis! I can honestly say that it was a life changing experience for me. Gaining an understanding of what yoga actually is, spending weeks with like minded, kind and inspiring girls. Being under Miriam’s incredible guidance as she shared her practice with us. I feel so grateful for Miriam, she is an incredible YTT trainer, patient and with so much knowledge to give. I feel especially in a time of Covid when so much felt hopeless and a little frustrating, coming to Amorgos island was like a breath of fresh air, an absolutely beautiful Hidden gem. Hiking , swimming at the beach and pool , yoga, delicious vegetarian food, teas chatting to the girls, amazing sauna sessions and massages with Christos at the spa, literally all my favourite things combined in a few weeks . I hope to be back to Aegialis. I miss it Bronwen, South Africa

  • I don't even know where to start to be honest. Shall I start with the venue? With the class? With the teacher? I guess it does not really matter, because everything has been just FABOULOUS! From the very first second (when I reached out to Aegialis School of Yoga on Instagram) up to the very end (after our departure) everything was planned and executed with perfection. The location of the Hotel is just breathtaking! Waking up every morning with an amazing view over the Aegean Sea and fall asleep with the sounds of the waves, cuddled by the sunset is something not to be forgotten. The path from the room to the Shala, where the classes were taking place, was every morning surreal. Aegialis Hotel is a family hotel and very soon you will feel like being part of a big family. Miriam, Stamatis, Kalliovi, Elleni, Stavros, Christos, Arta, Theo, Stefania, George, Poppy, Fey, Dimitra, the chef Houssain (and all the rest of the staff) - they all will make you feel home. Was very sad to leave indeed.  The training (both practice and theory) was very well-structured (much better than I could have ever expected) and Miriam is an amazing teacher! She has the gift of making even the most difficult concepts of Indian Philosophy accessible to everyone. I could talk for days about my experience at Aegialis. Everything exceeded my expectations, and this will stay one of the most powerful and beautiful experiences I have ever made in this life. Thank you so much for making it possible to attend the training despite this difficult time, despite the pandemic, despite everything. Namaste Irina

  • The 200hr YTT with Aegialis was one of the best experiences I've had. The teachers are extremely educated and passionate about passing on their knowledge and for their students to succeed, the staff at the hotel make you feel like family and the facilities make the experience that much better! It was lovely to use the spa facilities after a long day of training and study.
    The training was great, the curriculum was set up well, however I would ask for one more lecture in anatomy as a few of us felt it was too much for 4 sessions. Otherwise perfect.
    Miriam and all the other teachers just want you to absorb as much knowledge as you can and was particularly thorough on explaining all the asanas and their correct alignment, I feel confidant going forward as a teacher with the training I received in her practical classes. Miriam is also extremely thorough with the philosophy and we all came to understand everything we learnt with her more and more each day with our class revision and repetition. I also thoroughly enjoyed our YiN classes with Kalliovi, she is an excellent teacher.
    Thank you Aegialis School of Yoga for laying the foundation of my teaching career, I would recommend this school to anyone looking to start their Yoga teacher journey.

  • Due to the covid situation it was not a easy decision to go for the YTT but I am so happy that I made it. It was an great experience in all directions. To have Miriam as teacher made this journey much better than expected. Her knowledge about Yoga, Meditation, Ayurveda is amazing and she shared all of it to us as her students. She never gets tired to motivate you when you feel like you can’t go forward. To practice with her is always amazing and I can’t wait to practice with her again. Kalliovi as well is a great teacher which always takes care in her classes about your comfort and her shavasana adjustment is amazing. This island and hotel is the perfect place for this education. The island has a very special energy and this special silent - you will not find words for it. Aegials Hotel & Spa is a big family and you get part of it in the moment when you arrive there. The vegan and vegetarian food has a lot of possibilities and variations, I missed the variations from vegetables like grilled vegetable with cheese or just vegetable pasta made with zucchini and so on… The Anatomy is a big part in this education and I would recommend to make more lessons or an additional q&a session per week for the non-native speakers. Finally, I just can say once more thank you a specially to Miriam, and as well to all others for me this Education was the beginning for many changes in my life so never stop dreaming - stay focused!
