click to see what heppened the first time here…
Most people fall in love with it at first sight, others are enchanted by the way of life, its people, the food and its saffron notes, its crystal clear waters, its picturesque landscape and the beautiful Chora.
The island of Astypalea, the Aegeans’s butterfly, is waiting for us to explore it and discover its secret treasures

This yoga retreat will be a unique rejuvenation and holiday experience. Imagine waking up in the morning, seeing Chora and its mills, the deep blue sky, then practicing Yoga under the Venetian Castle overlooking the endless blue sea. Then the day continues with excursions to dream beaches with crystal clear waters, such as the beaches of Agios Konstantinos, Stenos, Maltezana, Livadi and a one-day visit to the islands of Koutsomitis and Kounoupas. During sunset we will exercise with soothing breathing practices, calm exercises and meditation. Chora is ideal for an evening walk around its Venetian Castle, its cobbled streets, the impressive windmills on Chora Square, its traditional taverns and quiet bars.
