Types of yoga offered on the retreat
Yoga is the main focus of your retreat, inspired by our teachers and the beauty of Nisyros. While on your retreat we offer two daily yoga classes. Our morning class begins with a hatha or ashtanga inspired class in our hotel. The evening classes are held offsite below an ancient fortress, with views of the island below. The evening classes are a combination of yin, restorative or kundalini inspired yoga. Our classes are for all levels, from beginner to intermediate and are taught by certified yoga instructors.
