MESSAGE FROM THE AMBASSADOR

Our mission is a lifestyle philosophy based on balance, preservation, & restoration. Through positive personalized attention, we welcome all individuals regardless of age, ability, & level.

- Nikki Baksh

Highlights

"Certainty is a powerful energetic force essential for breaking inertia and developing momentum. The seed of certainty is found in commitment, a one-way street. You can't partly commit or potentially commit. When you deliver a, 'Yes, I've got this!' you inject a positive intent and energy into a project that is palpable.'" -Mark Divine from 'The Way of the SEAL'

What are you certain of for 2017? What are you ready to commit to this year? Carving out time for YOU is essential -- whether it is much needed solitude or connecting with a partner, friend, or loved one. Step into certainty of how/what you want to dedicate to yourself in 2017.As one option, we invite you to join us for a mid-year break in Greece to divinely nurture your being. Buddha teaches us to question everything and form our own opinions in life. After all, the 1 true teacher resides within.

With 6 nights in beautiful Greece, we leave behind the day to day expectations put upon us and tap into our highest, truest, most authentic selves. Through yoga and movement meditation, we will Renew, Release, and Restore our infinite potentials through the evocation of our ancient god & goddess energies.

A little about the island itself:
Amorgos is an island off the beaten track, a true gem of the Aegean Sea. Its dramatic landscape, with abrupt cliffs alternating with slopes filled with wild herbs, contrast to the serene Big Blue that surrounds the land. An extent network of hiking trails offers the opportunity for beautiful walks reaching some of the island's most important monuments, such as the 1000 year old Monastery of Panagia Chozoviotissa, built in the cliffs 300 meters above the sea, or the Byzantine Monastery of St George Valsamitis, built upon the ruins of an ancient water oracle dedicated to god Apollo.

Amorgos is also famous, in the whole of Greece and abroad, for its therapeutic plants and hebs. The mountain slopes are not only full of impressive wild flowers, but also of plants which have been known for their therapeutic attributes since antiquity. A walk in the paths of Amorgos gives the chance for acquaintance with this natural wealth.

Beaches:

The common characteristics which all beaches of Amorgos -irrespective of their form share, are the crystal clear waters and the splendid sea bottom.

The beach of Agia Anna (with small pebbles and sand), where the film “The Big Blue” has been filmed and the beach Kampi are offered for swimming, at a small distance from Hora. In Katapola you can swim at the sandy beaches Maltezi, Kato Akrotiri, Foinikies, Agioi Saranta but also at the rocky Plakes and the beach of Agios Panteleimonas. In the region of Aigiali you can enjoy the sandy beaches of Levrosou, Agios Pavlos, and Psili Ammos, while in Kato Meria you can choose from the splendid beaches of Mouros, Kalotaritissa, Kato Kambos and Paradeisia.
