We are delighted to be teaching a week retreat for the 7th consecutive year at the incredible venue Yoga Rocks on the unspoiled South coast of Crete in Triopetra. The fact that this is our 7th year at this location speaks for itself of what we think of the place. We love it here! Previous years we have opted for Spring or Autumn weeks but 2018 we are going for a midsummer week. We are excited to give this a try! 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.
The retreat is non-smoking, alcohol free and vegetarian. 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.
Early morning yoga practice before the heat of the day kicks in. We plan to do the second class early evening as opposed to afternoon because of the temperature.
That gives ample daytime for yourselves to either enjoy the beach / pool / beach! For those who prefer respite from the Summer sun, the shaded outdoor deck 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 an early rise for the yoga practice.
One of the things we are excited about are those warm summer nights. With the later sunset and much warmer evenings than Spring or Autumn weeks, we are excited to offer more evening outdoor activities like stargazing and moonlit walks, kirtan under the stars and pranayama on the outdoor deck.
We absolutely love this venue and we are excited to create a new experience offering our first Summer retreat there.
The lovely Triopetra magical rock formation on the island of Crete in Greece is particularly beautiful during the end of May. The locals already consider June to be a summer month with daytime temperatures up to an inviting 28 degrees. A dip in the crystal clear sea is already enjoyable. At Triopetra, the day break washes over Cretan mountains and long sweeping beaches, while the sun sets over the sea. The retreat will be held at Yoga Rocks, situated at a truly stunning location on a small cliff overlooking long, pristine, undeveloped beaches only ten minutes walk away.
