During this retreat, you can choose to stay at Levinthosor Filoxenia. Levinthos is a brand-new retreat center and a small family-run business. It is located in a secluded part of the bay of Lentas, known from the ancient times for its unique healing energy. Lentas is protected as an archaeological site and no big hotels can be found there. This has preserved the outstanding natural beauty and serenity of the area.

Levinthos offers four luxury en-suite flats and four studios next to the yoga shala and just one minute away from a beautiful secluded beach. They are all double glazed and equipped with an ecological air-conditioning based on geothermia. Each flat and studio has a fully equipped kitchenette, bathroom, and a front shaded garden.

Filoxenia's studios and apartments are located just across the road from Levinthos, a couple of minutes walking from the yoga shala and the café - restaurant. Filoxenia's rooms are equipped with air-conditioning, kitchen, fridge, and cooking equipment.

In this, the second part of the yoga and therapy series, Peter will be focusing on anatomy and biomechanics, the Five Elements, yoga Nidra, neuro-linguistic programming, and energy healing. Looking at the elemental view (tridoshas) and the five sheaths (Pancha Koshas) of the human constitution and combining the knowledge of the western science with the wisdom of the east, you can create a system of asana, breathing, and meditation to help you realign yourself and others in a physical, energetic, mental, and spiritual level.

During this retreat, you will learn how to use anatomy and biomechanics to create a safe and efficient asana practice. You will also learn how to use The Five Elements system and how to recognize the predominance of them on yourself and your students. Breathing practices will be used to create energy and vitality, as well as realign or correct imbalances and the neuro-linguistic programming, coming from the West, and yoga Nidra, coming from the East, will be used to empower the mind. Additionally, you will use energy healing and sound for the chakras and meditations for the spirit.

  • Peter Clifford

    Peter is the founder and director of Anahata Yoga and he has practiced and studied yoga for 51 years. He has had the honor of studying with many wise and knowledgeable teachers in India, including Swami Shankara, Swami Sarasvati, TKV Desikachar, AG Mohan, BKS Iyengar, and Rishi Nityabhodanand. Combining his study of Anahata yoga with a lifelong interest in learning about biomechanics, postural integration, anatomy, and physiology, Peter has developed the unique, powerful, and comprehensive Anahata yoga philosophy, which manifests in asana as the dance of Shiva and Shakti.

The legend says that once upon a time Cleopatra visited Lentas, which was famous for the healing powers of the water, light, and air of the place. On her return to Egypt, she left behind her favorite animals: the lion, the elephant, and the crocodile to protect the magical bay of Lentas. The animals petrified on their awaiting for her return and they are still standing there protecting the beautiful port of Lentas, which means lion.

Lentas is an idyllic fishing village on the south coast of Crete, in Greece. The name Lentas derives from the Greek Λέοντας, which means lion in English, and refers to the lion shaped cape that makes the bay of Lentas. Lentas has a great history, with the oldest tracks of remainders being located at the stone era. Lentas became famous across its borders because of the Asklipio Temple from the fourth century BC. Asklipios was the god of medicine, healing, and rejuvenation.

People went to the temple to be healed. They slept overnight and reported their dreams to a priest the next day. The priest would prescribe a cure, which was to visit the baths or drink the healing water of the area. Visitors from all over Greece and North Africa visited in that time the magnificently equipped hot springs with their welfare-bringing water.

Nowadays, the whole village is protected as an archaeological area, which prevents large hotels from being built, allowing Lentas to keep its beautiful landscape almost intact. Lentas has many traditional tavernas and cafés where you can taste the local Cretan cuisine or enjoy a drink right by the Libyan Sea. There are many beautiful beaches in close proximity, such as Ostria, Dytikos, Loutra, and Trachoulas. If you like climbing or walking, you can take one of the many paths up the mountain of the Lion and enjoy the stunning views of the landscape and sea.

Nearby places

  • Heraklion, 75 kilometers

During this retreat, no meals are included. Close to the shala, there is the cafe-restaurant of Levinthos, which offers stunning views to the Libyan Sea. In there, you can enjoy your meals, use free Wi-Fi, and chill out. Live music nights and jam sessions will be taking place at dinner time.

You will find that food is mostly locally farmed and organic, freshly prepared, and served in generous portions. Breakfast consists of a rich buffet with a choice of fresh fruits and juices, eggs, Greek yogurt, honey, cheese, toasts, and other Cretan products.

Dishes are mainly vegetarian but you can also order meat meals or delicious freshly fished fish.

    Beoordeling van Anoniem

    Sailing and yoga in Greece.

    CONS Contra's: People who attend the retreats need to be asked more questions before going. They need to be ready physically and mentally for a week of yoga and being at sea.

    PROS Pro's: I really enjoyed sailing to the different islands. All of the beaches that we went to were amazing. Being out on the sea in Greece was very relaxing, it was much needed. Olympia was wonderful in every way. She was a great yoga instructor and chef! She really went out of her way to help before, during, and after the retreat.

  • Beoordeling van Vasilis uit London

    "Lentas proved itself to be quite a remarkable place with its breath taking views and secluded beaches. Yiannis with his family at the Levinthos were great hosts and did a great service to the renowned reputation for Cretan hospitality and amazing cuisine. I was lucky enough to stay at one of apartments which had uninterrupted views of the sea. Clean and we’ll presented, it certainly exceeded my expectations."

    "I’d not heard of Anahata Yoga before the trip and was excited to be trying something new. Peter’s reputation preceded him with the many good things I had heard prior to the trip and there were certainly no disappointments. In fact, as the week went on I found the depth of practice only enhanced the experience. Peter’s kind and gentle way encouraged us all to appreciate a compassion for ourselves that on the one hand alleviated the expectation to compete with anyone, including the self. On the other hand I feel we all had the experience of being taken beyond our own perceived capabilities, whatever our level before going. Peter’s experience is truly unquestionable and his life stories will have you sitting on the edge of your yoga mat at times and chuckling at others with his amiable sense of humor."

    "The evenings were a great way to end the day with music and dance for those who wished to stay up and enjoy it. Olympia did a great job of coordinating the trip especially in giving the opportunity to take as little or as much as you wanted from what was on offer."

    "The retreat became a journey of body, mind, music and friendships. It was all there if you wanted it and could certainly have been much more for those who wished it so. I very much look forward to going again next year and spending valuable time with my Anahata siblings."
