A favorite of the artists and poets who go to marvel over it's dramatic beauty, Folegandros is small and can fill up in the tourist season. The Chora is perched high in the mountains and is alive with tavernas and bars. The ferry stops at the port of Karavostasis where there are restaurants, hotels, beaches and buses to Chora and island beaches. The Cycladic School is located here offering classes in cooking, folk dancing and yoga and Judith Grodowitz will be teaching her workshop in the Alexander Technique, "Inspiration in the Aegean". The dates are August 23-28, 2001. The class is held in the one-room Neoclassical schoolhouse in Chora, and accomodations are in local hotels. The Alexander Technique is a movement re-education method, where people learn to move with more ease, support and flexibility in their daily activities. She combines this exploration with imagery and stories from Greek mythology and with movement improvisation. For more info e-mail: jkgrod@earthlink.net

     Folegandros is about 9 hours from Pireaus with several boats a week. The island connects with Sifnos, Milos, Santorini, Sikinos and Ios a couple times a week.
