Set on an idyllic island a stone’s throw away from the Aegean sea, this 20-day workshop is geared towards practitioners of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and anyone with a genuine interest in developing their yoga practice. Participants must be familiar with the traditional Ashtanga primary sequence. Please note that this workshop is not suitable for complete beginners.
Numbers are limited so please secure your place by paying a deposit of $550 by 30 April 2015. People who have attended previous workshops in Greece with Eoin will be given priority.
Mornings will begin with meditation followed by either a Mysore or led class. Afternoons will cover questions about the practice or meditation, basic pranayama and practice techniques.

Visas and Currency
Many visitors to Greece will not need to obtain a visa for visits to Greece of up to 90 days. This includes citizens of all other European Union countries, Canada, Australia, Japan, and the United States.
These days, as security arrangements change rapidly, visa requirements can also change. Please verify your needs directly with the local Greek consulate in your nation of origin. If you’re flying directly to Greece, your airline may also be able to tell you if a visa is required, but it is best to verify visa requirements for Greece with the Greek embassy or consulate in your country.
The currency in Greece is Euro.
