Program

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 and beaches! 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 September retreat there.

Retreat location

The fact that this is our 8th year at this location speaks for itself of what we think of the place . We LOVE IT HERE !! New this season is that Yoga Rocks has moved a sand dune away from Triopetra to Agios Pavlos Bay with stunning views over the bay and direct beach access.

At Agios Pavlos, the day break 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 energising. 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.
