Holiday's content

This holiday combines qigong and yoga to create a holistic, deeply rejuvenating experience.

  • Taoist qigong brings forth the qualities of relaxation, fluidity, no effort (wu wei) and meditation in our practice.
  • Hatha yoga teaches us the importance of grounding, alignment, breathing, and balance.

Travel and Do prefers to work in small numbers to get to know you better and have true results, therefore a maximum of 6 participants will be allowed.

In conjunction with the included in itinerary excursion and optional activities, regional cuisine and enough free time to experience new things at your own pace, this is going to be an unforgettable holistic holiday.

  • You will shed new light on your known Hatha yoga poses.
  • You will rest and rejuvenate deeply in the venue right close to a quiet pebble beach with crystal clear water.

Retreat locatie

This retreat will take place in a rural village, 20 kilometers west of Chania city, on the beautiful island of Crete, Greece. “Out in the dark blue sea, there lays a land called Crete, a rich and lovely land, washed by the waves on every side..." says the famous Homer in “The Odyssey”. Crete is perhaps the most famous travel destination of Greece, especially among those who seek the traditional side of the Greek culture.

Offering a unique and diverse landscape, a chance to come close to the local customs, native people with authentic hospitality and the Cretan cuisine, famous worldwide for its taste and health benefits, Crete is a "must explore" for the conscious travelers of today. Although globalization, tourism, and economic growth have inevitably changed the way of life in Crete, especially in the large urban centers, to a modern and cosmopolitan style, the Cretans still preserve the bonds with their rich folk traditions and cultural heritage.

The Cretan dances are still danced at every opportunity and the "marinade" and the "Ritika" songs resound in every celebration. In the countryside, many old Cretan men and women wear the traditional costume and the Cretan idiom is widely spoken even in the large cities. There is an exceptional artistic production in traditional sectors such as pottery, embroidery, jewellery, etc, and of course the very special Cretan music.

Arts and literature had always played a significant role in the life of the Cretan people. Famous painters like El Greco, Michael Damaskinos, writers like Nikos Kazantzakis, poets like Vincenzos Kornaros and Odysseas Elitis, composers like Mikis Theodorakis, Manos Hatzidakis and Giannis Markopoulos are Cretans or of Cretan origin.

Today there are many important Cretans with significant contribution in all aspects of the cultural life in Greece. Extra virgin olive oil, legumes, and vegetables still constitute the base of the local cuisine as they have done for thousands of years and make the Cretan cuisine renowned worldwide for its benefits on longevity and good health.

Bereikbaarheid

Recommended Airports

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Chania International Airport (CHQ). CHQ airport pickup and drop off transfer is in your price included. The organizer will pick you up from the airport. There are numerous direct charter flights to Crete, departing from many cities in Europe. Alternatively, you can fly from almost any big European city to Athens and further fly to Crete using Olympic Air or Aegean Air. Early booking is advisable.

Arrival by ferry / boat

After landing in Athens go by Metro to the port of Piraeus and get a boat to Crete (daily connections). It's important to know that it takes about 1,5 hours to reach the port of Piraeus by Metro after you have landed. From the port of Piraeus, you can buy a high-speed ferry ticket (the ferry to Crete takes about 8 hours) to arrive in Chania port.

Collecting you from the Chania port (port Souda) is included in your holiday package.
