Inspiring and Energizing Yoga Retreat in Crete

Iyengar Yoga Holidays is delighted to be teaching a week retreat for the tenth nearly consecutive year at the incredible venue Yoga Rocks on the unspoiled South coast of Crete in Triopetra. The fact that this is their tenth year at this location speaks for itself of what they think of the place. They love it there!

There are two tavernas within easy walking distance if you have any extra needs. All Yoga Rocks rooms are spacious and en suite with stunning views of the Mediterranean from their balcony or terrace.

The rooms will be ready from around 2 p.m. on Saturday 21 May 2022. Yoga Rocks hosts groups each week so the group from the week before will be checking out of their rooms that morning, this is why the rooms will only be available for you from 2 p.m. And your check-out time is on Saturday, 28 May at 10 a.m.

The price is based on sharing a room with one other guest. They can help find suitable matches to share with if you are coming alone. Single rooms are available but a limited number so a supplement is required, please ask Iyengar Yoga Holidays for more details if you are interested.

If you will arrive on Crete before Saturday or plan to stay after the retreat finishes, they are more than happy to help arrange accommodation or give suggestions of where to stay and where to visit.

Program

This all-inclusive international Iyengar Yoga retreat includes a full program of daily asana and pranayama practice as well as your accommodation and all meals.

Every morning there will be a 3-3,5 hours yoga/pranayama practice. The second class will be restorative and 1,5 hours early evening right before dinner. That gives ample daytime for yourselves to either enjoy the beach(es) or the shaded outdoor spots in a hammock, a short trip to the mountain village of Spili, a boat trip going snorkeling, reading a book in one of the quiet areas of the retreat or a well-earned nap after a long rich morning yoga practice.

Exciting for the optional evening activities are the all-time favorite stargazing as well as moonlit walks, kirtan under the stars, and yoga Nidra outdoors. As the beach is closer than the previous location evenings at the beach will definitely move up on the list of activities!

Daily schedule

Iyengar Yoga Holidays will offer a long morning class of 3,5 hours that combines both asanas as well as pranayama. Starting at 8 a.m. or 9 a.m. (depending on the preference of the group).

One afternoon will be free (probably Wednesday) so that you can explore a nearby town or take a trip to the waterfall, or just have a lazy afternoon by the pool or on the beach. But all other afternoons there will be a restorative class of 1.5 hours. Beginning at 17.00. Some evenings, Iyengar Yoga Holidays will offer meditation sessions, yoga philosophy talks, or a screening of a film or documentary depending on the group's needs.

Retreat location

The fact that this is the tenth year at this location speaks for itself of what Iyengar Yoga Holidays think of the place. Yoga Rocks has moved a sand dune away from Triopetra to Agios Pavlos Bay with stunning views over the bay and direct beach access.

Enjoy the peace of never-ending beaches with translucent velvety seas or more lively times as your mood takes you. Delve deep inside or simply kickback. Also, the lovely Triopetra magical rock formation on the island of Crete in Greece is particularly beautiful during the end of summer and a quick drive or walk away. A dip in the crystal clear sea is super enjoyable.
