Program

Your everyday practice on yoga and meditation will help you to experience a deep sense of calmness, reducing all the stress and creates a welfare sense.

Yoga works on flexibility and strength, purifies the body, refreshes the mind and gives a good balance between body and mind.

Our yoga teachers having a long experience in the yoga field, teaching all levels and yoga styles to balance the class and modifying to be suitable both beginners and advanced students.

In asana, we work mostly on the gross physical body and in pranayama we move inwards, working chiefly with the more subtle breath. The next move is still further inwards and towards even more subtlety as we begin to work directly with the mind. Meditation is part of yoga practice.

Retreat location

Breath of LIfe Yoga Retreats Crete-Greece chooses to run this yoga teacher training in the southern Chania region. In a small simple fishing village, where the energy is pure and serene, and the beautiful natural environment fits in yoga philosophy, just 3 steps away from the beach and the crystal clear waters of the Libyan sea.

Your flight lands at the prefecture of Chania, the westernmost regional unit of Crete, which is one of the most beautiful destinations in Greece.

The old town of Chania is considered to be one of the most beautiful spots on Crete, with its jewel - the charming old Venetian harbor of Chania, an ideal place for a morning coffee, sightseeing, romantic walks, shopping, and nightlife.

From Chania airport and after a 70-kilometer route (1.5 hours) towards the southern edge of Europe, you can reach Chora Sfakion and Loutro. Ferries run between Hora Sfakion and Loutro every one hour during the summer season.

Loutro is a small picturesque seaside resort village located on the south coast of the prefecture of Chania, in the region of Sfakia. Here, there are no roads or car traffic, and apart from the ferry that comes and leaves, you will see small boats used either for pleasure or transportation, as the village is only accessible from the sea (or walking). Here you will find shops, restaurants and ferry connections.

From Loutro on a 10-minute boat ride around the headland or a 20-minute walk you can reach Lykos beach in a sheltered, car-free bay. It’s where the yoga center is located.

From the base – center, you can explore the beautiful coastline and beaches and the walking trails along the coast, in the famous Cretan gorges nearby and into the mountains behind. The local area is a haven for wildlife including rare birds and spectacular Cretan flowers. There are many beautiful coastal, mountain and gorge walks that start right from the center.

The entrance to the Aradena Gorge is just 1 kilometer away on the beautiful Marmara beach and it is open to visitors all year round.
