Paros Island





Welcome to Paros Island

This 200 HOURS Yoga Teacher Training Retreat in will be hosted on the island of Paros. In the centre of the Aegean Sea there is a cluster of 24 islands which the ancient Greeks named Cyclades, after the circle that surrounds the holy island of Delos, a place of adoration of the ancient greek god Apollon.

Paros is one of the most popular islands of Cyclades and one of the most picturesque islands of the complex, which maintains its unique Cycladic beauty unchanged. The hotel we’ll stay is Saint George and is located only a few steps from such a magnificent beach: New Golden Beach, on the South East part of Paros. Away from the hustle and bustle of the busy during summer major points of the island, Saint George Hotel is at 19km from Paroikia port and 15km from Paros airport.

For accommodation in Paros we have chosen Saint George Hotel is perhaps the only 4-star hotel on Paros with high services and standards. The hotel is perfectly situated on the sandy New Golden beach, which is one of the most well-known beaches of Paros. The beautiful landscape along with the high quality facilities and services make it the ideal place to relax and enjoy. The hotel’s unique location on the beach offers its guests extraordinary views of the boundless blue of the Aegean Sea and the sky.

The price is for a twin shared room: 2 single beds. If you need a single room let us know and we’ll inform you for the availability and the extra cost. We suggest you do this as early as possible. Roommates will be assigned to all shared rooms unless otherwise requested. Shared rooms can be mixed genders, if required.

Healthy Nutrition

Have you ever cooked chickpeas in the oven? Well in Paros they do. Baked chickpeas and white goat cheese are some of the local recipes that you will taste in Paros.

Every day is included breakfast, afternoon snack and dinner, except for the days off. We follow vegetarian diet (dairy products and eggs included), using only fresh, local and ussually organic ingredients. It is possible to arrange vegan, gluten-free, and lactose-free menu but it will come with an extra cost. Let us know in advance if this is your choice.

Read what they say about us

I searched a lot to find the right place to do my yoga training and Christos from the first moment made me feel safe as I had little experience. It was the best choice I could have made… It opened up roads that I didn’t know existed… The whole team is amazing, very well organized and the retreat in all is a unique experience!


I attended the 200-hour training program in 2018 after an extensive search to find the right place and people to help me discover the world of yoga beyond mat practice. Christos was that person who, from the very first conversation, made me feel warm and confident about what would follow.


I completed my training in Ayama 2 years ago. I would go back in time and relive it if I could. Knowledge with substance, love and care. Proper guidance for development and support. For me, now, Ayama is a nest that I can return to whenever I need to.


A yoga training program that gave me the strength, in addition to being a lifelong student of yoga, to also share the path I walk and continue to learn. I am thrilled with the experience and highly recommend it. I thank all the teachers of Ayama Yoga House for the endless knowledge they generously share.


I feel deeply grateful to have had the opportunity to complete Ayama’s teacher training program. The essential knowledge, the effective method, the holistic approach and of course the wonderful teachers helped me delve into the philosophy & practice of authentic yoga


Each teacher with their own gifts, always willing to help us. They supported me to overcome my physical and mental obstacles. Thank you for everything!
