Inspiring and Energizing Yoga Retreat in Crete

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

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.


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 three hours yoga/pranayama practice. The second class will be Restorative, and one hour and a half early evening right before dinner.

That gives ample day time for yourselves to either enjoy the beaches 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 our all-time favorite star gazing 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!

Sample daily schedule

  • 07:30: Breakfast
  • 08:30: Meditation, Yoga, and Pranayama - 3 hours
  • 12:30: Lunch
  • 17:00: Yoga - 2 hours
  • 19:30: Dinner and relax

On the arrival day organizer will also offer a 90 minutes class at 17:00.

Retreat location

The fact that this is our ninth year at this location speaks for itself of what we 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. It's even better than before!

At Agios Pavlos, the daybreak washes over Cretan mountains and long sweeping beaches, while the sun sets over the sea. Enjoy the warming sunshine, pristine peace and genuine atmosphere on the South coast of Crete, Greece.

A friendly and experienced team ensure all runs smoothly, allowing time and space to embrace the sparkling essence of yoga.

Our locally sourced, freshly prepared vegetarian food is unforgettably tasty and energizing. 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 kick back.

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.
