Program

Ayurveda means “the knowledge of life”. In its essence Ayurveda provides you with the knowledge of who you are and how to live your life in harmony. For this you need to understand your own mind-body personality (dosha) and Ayurveda gives you the key to this understanding! On top of that, it is the first ever recorded system of healing the physical, mental and energetic body. Fundamentally, it is giving each individual the personal tools to live a balanced and fulfilled lifestyle.

Your everyday yoga and meditation will help you experience a deep sense of calmness, reduce all the stress, and creating a sense of well-being. Yoga works on flexibility and strength, purifies the body, refreshes the mind, and gives a good balance between body and mind. Meditation is an essential part of your yoga practice and you will start to work directly with your breath and mind. Additional workshops help to connect with your true self.

You will open up to experience a conscious journey of transformation. This is a beautiful path for empowering strengthening, increasing flexibility and revitalizing the entire being.

There is plenty of possibility to communicate and connect with everyone. This program will help you to relax and you will also have plenty of free time for swimming, explore the island, or just lay back and read a good book.

Retreat location

This retreat will take place in Lentas, South Crete, Greece. Lentas is just 75 kilometers away from Heraklion City in South Crete. The distance can be covered by car in one hour and 10 minutes approximately. The road is passing through many traditional villages of the inland Crete, the plain of Messara, and the fascinating rocky mountain range of Asterousia.

The village of Lentas has many traditional taverns and cafes where you can taste the famous Cretan food and enjoy your coffee or drink exactly next to the Libyan Sea. The region is optimal for an undisturbed stay away from the hectic pace of city life and combines relaxation with physical activity such as swimming in the crystal clear waters of the sea or walking along the verdant trekking routes of the area.

The place has preserved its natural beauty due to the fact that there are many underground antiquities. The climate of Lentas is mildly hot and dry allowing visitors to have a swim most of the time of the year. The bay is well protected against the wind and the waters are always crystal and clear.
