WHAT IS ELYSIA ?
Back in ancient times, poets like Homer, Pindar and Hesiod described the Champs Elysées (Elysian Fields) in their texts as an idyllic, beautiful and peaceful place where the souls of the fortuned arrived there, and had the opportunity to enjoy and feel the absolute euphoria. It was a divine place "with blooming meadows,
where there was eternal spring, and sources of Lethe gushing nectar”. According to mythology it was there, that Menelaus and Beautiful Helen, kings and several heroes were exercising and playing music while dancing under the shade of big beautiful trees. Inspired by these heavenly places that the word Elysia refers to, we decided to gather people of the Yoga Community and unite them on an island which has now established itself as a Yoga Retreat destination. Amorgos is an island blessed with natural beauty and magnificent sceneries, in a way being the Elysian island of today.
