6 nights in Amorgos, Greece
Fri Jun 16 - Thu Jun 22, 2017
"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.
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.

Nikki's work expresses the human experience in it's most raw, brilliant, honest form. Her professional background as one of NYC's leading teachers in yoga and dance breathed life into creating a need for balance, preservation, and restoration within herself.

Nikki’s double major in Theatre & Religion, allow for her to educate & guide students to transcend ego and gently return to pure love & our eternal spiritual beings. Her passion for life and her adventurous spirit are brought together by her need to understand the world around her. She currently teaches waitlisted yoga classes in New York City at Equinox and privately.

The philosophies of complete inclusion, acceptance, love & compassion, & transcendental awareness, shine through OBS teachings for both the individual & together as a group.

Amy is passionate about creating a safe, fun and collaborative artistic environment in her classes. Her movement-meditation classes awaken and release the inner god/goddess spiritual and physical energies within us all, and offer gentle guidance into embracing the "journey is the reward." Her belief that the power of movement can transform lives has led her specifically to: teach a movement practice that inspires both men and women to embody their strength and softness, power and vulnerability; as well as, ignite her own non-profit that spreads dance and yoga to post-conflict regions. Amy’s personal journey has allowed for her to encompass the true meaning of total acceptance & love.About Amy Danielson
