PILATES WITHIN – Greece


Fall in Love…

…with Amorgos, just like we did, on our first visit. Being nature and outdoor lovers, we found the perfect retreat location with the right mix of luxury and a sense of complete freedom. Come and play with us and the wind during our daily Pilates and Yoga classes outside. We will hike together, discover some secluded beaches and swim together (the water should sill be warm in October). We will explore our bodies and mind and tie together connections to become stronger and re-energize ourselves. I am very excited to be working again with the amazing Anja Kursawe… always mind-opening, always creative, full of life.

  • 7 nights 5* accommodation with daily buffet breakfast

The Deep Blue!

Yes, the cult film The Deep Blue was actually filmed on little-known Amorgos island and as this retreat is all about discoveries, we will bring you to that magic little beach for some swimming, and diving into the deep blue waters of the Aegean Sea. But this just one little highlight of your week of bliss.

Your home for the week will be the luxurious boutique (yet 5-star!) Aegialis Hotel and Spa overlooking the the bay of Aegialis. When I visited, the sea looked so yummy I wanted to jump straight in and there are plenty little coves and beaches nearby to do just that… or you could stay at the pool and simply enjoy the view.

Amorgos, while part of the famous Cyclades islands, is little visited and a true gem to be discovered. We will wander around dramatic cliffs and discover sleepy villages where we can stop for a Greek coffee frappé and breathe in the salty air. All excursions are optional, but if you enjoy nature as much as Anja and I do, you will surely want to join.

As Amorgos can be a bit tricky to reach, we have made it easy for you by picking you up directly from Athens airport. From there, we will whisk you onto the ferry to Amorgos (a fantastic journey in itself) and before you know it you will settle into one of the wonderfully bright and tastefully decorated rooms at the Aegialis. Welcome to paradise!

 

 

Single Room  €1550 / Double Room  €1300

Most of our guests opt for a single room for the extra space and privacy. All rooms are light and tastefully decorated with accents in white and blue. Many overlook the pool and the deep blue sea and most have a small terrace/balcony to enjoy the view.
If you need to watch your budget or travel with a friend or loved one, then we offer double rooms with either a queen or 2 twin beds.
 
This retreat price covers everything outlined in the details.

  • Like an abstract painting. Maledives from above. A stopover just. After the plane had emptied off the tourists, I was almost alone in the 1-hr onward flight to Colombo. #andsoitbegins #offtosrilanka #pilatesgodeep2017 #yogaretreat #pilatesretreat #withoutthefamily #ilovemyjob #cantwaittostart
  • Packing for Sri Lanka. Favorite sandals, favorite book, favorite leggings from @prancingleopard ... a gift for my participants and a mala by @shifuwangbo for myself... A week of bliss doing what I do best lays ahead. 
If you missed this retreat, have a look at our 2018 Retreats - link in profile. From Teacher Trainings to Family Retreats, from Morocco to Portugal...the time is now! #pilatesretreat2017 #yogaretreat #pilatesgodeep2017 #offtosrilanka #trilanka #seeyalater
  • Kiwi is ready for class, so are you coming? The fact that I’ve moved our community yoga classes indoors makes sure I keep up my ‚saucha‘ ❤️👏 #yogainalacati #morningyoga #practicedaily #yogaclass #inside #imready
  • Yes. We have officially moved inside. The sun and blue sky is deceptive. It’s still so warm and nice in the daytime, but mornings are chilly now and who wants to shiver during savasana...? #yogaclass #morningyoga #yogainalacati #practicedaily #myfavoritestudents
  • The coming weeks have a lot of travel in store. I’ll be in Sri Lanka for our PILATES GO DEEP Retreat with @thomasshalabi, then in Costa Mesa, California to hook up with @basipilates for 2018 retreat ideas. But one of the most exciting events on my horizon is our 200-hr Pilates Mat Teacher Training in Thailand and Portugal with the gracious and always inspiring @bodyinsight_anjak - pictured here on our last trip to Greece... #alwaystraveling #exitingplans #lovemylife #livemyjob #pilatesretreat #collaborate #neverstoplearning #neverstopdreaming
  • Retreats are my life, but I do love my clients back home. Rarely have I ever taught a group with so much enthusiasm, comittment and so much laughter (much of it induced by my struggling for the right anatomical words in German). Feels really good to brush up on my poor German skills 😂! #pilatesfun #practicedaily #pilatesgroup #schoolteachersarethebest #youcandoit #doublelegstretch #pilatesinturkey
  • As the autumn days become greyer, retreat memories shine brighter ✨Here are my brother Thilo and the most wonderful Wang Bo, enjoying a post-class glass of water. Or wait - was it Vino Verde? #martialarts #basipilates #kungfu #raelisacowitz #shaolin #retreatofaliftime #pilatesretreat
  • Couldn't resist posting one more retreat moment... may we forever hold that incredible power within! #thismoment #pilatespersonal #retreatofaliftime #movementwithintention #basipilates #raelisacowitz #kungfu #shaolin #martialarts
  • Day 7. The time has come to part and to leave our bubble. I took me a while to select the right image from the plethora of exciting shots of our last Morning Pilates Class with #raelisacowitz ... the hug embodies it all. I'm still at a loss for words to describe what happened here in this week in Portugal. 🙏 #portugal2017 #basipilates #movementwithintention #retreatofaliftime #pilatespersonal #thismoment #wehavetomeetagain
