About this trip

The Fun in the Sun Retreat is based on a simple yet possibly life-changing goal: have as much fun under the Amorgian sun as possible! We will ditch the stress, the to-do list, the chores, the work, and the “shoulds,” and follow the tuggings of our hearts that bring you to bliss. It’s been a wild few years, so we created this trip for you to let go of what’s burdening you and to take care of your heart and soul. We will also take care of our bodies with movement classes, yoga, and other options of outdoor activities. There is a balance of fun group activities as well as free time for you to explore and choose your own adventures.

Location

Amorgos is an old, charming, and magical island in the southern Cyclades. It is full of revitalizing and restoring energy, making it the perfect place for physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual rejuvenation. Amorgos offers delicious and fresh food, warm and friendly people, and breathtaking views of the Aegean Sea. With a remote location, it’s very peaceful and not touristy. When visiting the island, most visit the stunning Panagia Hozoviotissa, a 10-century monastery built into the rocky cliffside. We love the natural beauty, tranquility, and adventure that Amorgos offers.

The retreat was well organized and a perfect get away from my hectic everyday life. Good balance of meditation, yoga and workouts, and balancing that with being able to enjoy the island. Just the needed break and reset I needed! Location was fantastic. Beautiful beaches (water super blue and clear) and the hotel had a great view of the island. Food was amazing! Thanks for the awesome time and experience!! :)
