Incongruous? Not during this cruise. You will discover all grandeur of antiquity gathered on these islands – from the island, raised by Artemis to former Halicarnassus, vanquished by Alexander the Great. Yet it won’t bother you from jumping into an endless feast of merrymaking. You will never be tired of enjoying life in these islands – indeed, in one of them a mystical centre of power is hidden.

Piraeus/Athens

Day 1 Piraeus/Athens

 

Ten kilometres southwest of central Athens, Piraeus is dazzling in its scale, its seemingly endless quays filled with ferries, ships and hydrofoils. While technically its own city, it melds into the Athens sprawl, with close to half a million people living in the greater area.

The most attractive quarter lies east around Zea Marina and Mikrolimano harbours. The latter is lined with cafes, restaurants and bars often filled with people who've disembarked from their yachts for the day.

Syros

Day 2 Syros

Heart of the Aegean Sea

TRAVEL ATTRACTIONS YOGA PROGRAM

Sitting in the heart of the Aegean Sea, Syros is a mixture of Cycladic and Venetian architecture. Just imagine whitewashed houses blending with colorful mansions and big churches, surrounded by the Cycladic nature. Dreamy, right? Ideal for families and couples who seek a romantic, yet laid-back holiday destination, Syros has an elegant and nostalgic vibe that enchants every visitor.

Ermoupoli, the capital of Syros island and also the orthodox town of Syros, is an architectural gem! Colorful mansions, neoclassical buildings, imposing orthodox churches and squares, create the most postcard-perfect place in Syros! For a dip into the culture of Ermoupolis, visit the Town Hall building, which was created by Ernst Ziller, Apollo Theater and Pallas cinema. 

8:00h — Morning Yoga

It’s a daily session to wake up with the rising sun and do a gentle all-levels welcome yoga. Starting with a short meditation to connect ourselves and our intentions for the day, chanting a few mantras to awaken our soul, we continue with a couple of easy breathing exercises just before the physical practice. The flow with the postures is slow and easy to follow for everybody, always with more challenging options for advanced students. After 60 min we finish the physical exercises with a smooth and deep relaxation to start the day new and refreshed in all ways.

 

17:30h — The Earth Element Special Session

We start the first of five special yoga sessions with the Element Earth related to the 1st Chakra. We work our roots through our legs and feet practicing balancing poses, strength and resistance on our legs, increasing our security and our attention in the present moment. It’s a practice for an intermediate level where beginners can feel the challenge and the advanced ones the joy.

Archaeological sanctuary

TRAVEL ATTRACTIONS YOGA PROGRAM

Delos, sometimes spelled Dilos, was the most important Panhellenic sanctuary, and, according to mythology, the birth place of Apollo and Artemis. The first signs of habitation on the island date from the 3rd millennium B.C. The Delos archaeological sanctuary is listed by Unesco as one of mankind's most important cultural and historical sites.

Overnight stay on Delos is forbidden. The only "inhabitants" of the island are security personnel and archaeologists.

Santorini

Day 6 Santorini

TRAVEL ATTRACTIONS YOGA PROGRAM

This island houses the largest sea volcano in the world. Part of its crater went under water during an eruption, thus creating a caldera – a funnel filled with sea water. The resulting intense tsunami led to the sunset of the Minoan civilization. There is a theory that it was exactly this tsunami that sunk Atlántida (also known as Atlantis). The edge of the caldera is an upright rock, approximately 300 meters high. One may get to the top on foot, conquering 687 steps, ride a mountain road lined with stones, or take a funicular. Once up at the height of 220 meters above sea level, you will find yourself in the most beautiful town of Fira – the capital of Santorini. Picturesque views of the town attract cinema directors, painters and photographers from all over the world. Not surprisingly, people say that all most beautiful movies of Greece were made here – snow-white houses, blue roofs and thrilling views of the sea and sky merging together.

All sunsets at Santorini are as unique as the colors of the sea before the sun sets, and they never repeat themselves. The color of the sky becomes supernatural, and along with the views of the waves, the shape of the clouds, the smells and the wind – all come together to create a sense of magic. Add to this incredible multicolored beaches with volcano sand and you get one of the most wonderful places on Earth!

17:30h — Sunset Yoga (outdoor session)

We do a very special yoga session in an amazing outdoor spot nourishing ourselves with a magnificent sunset while we come into the flow of a multi-level yoga session. We start with the Sun Salutations that are the same with the morning classes, but after some gentle poses, we practice a powerful meditation focused on our dreams, desires and life intentions.
