Eugenia studied psychology in Athens and went on to receive an MSc in sports psychology in Wales. She then began practicing yoga in 2004, while studying contemporary dance in Scotland. She gained a yoga teacher qualification from the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres in 2005 and in 2012, she received her Iyengar yoga teaching certification. Her classes strive to create a safe and nurturing environment. The focus on the breath, as a powerful tool for developing awareness of the body and quieting the mind, is integral in her teaching, also incorporating elements of her Vipassana meditation.
Constantinos is an enthusiastic & dedicated practitioner of Iyengar yoga since 1992. In 1996, he moved to France where he also obtained his certification as a clinical psychologist from the University of Picardie. During that time, it became apparent to him that health is not simply the absence of disease but also concerns a state beyond that. In 1999, he moved to London where he continued his study of psychoanalysis at a postgraduate level while also studying yoga. After his return to Greece in 2003, he opened the first official Iyengar Yoga Centre in Athens.

"Idyllic relaxing retreat"
Fantastic week with brilliant and clear instruction from Eugenia. Was wonderful having the sessions underneath the olive trees outside. Food was delicious and nutritious. There's enough to keep you occupied in the area for a week and the yoga is not too strenuous to prevent you from wanting to explore in your free time. Am seriously considering booking for next year already.

"Few days stay with YogaOnCrete"
Retreat was in a gorgeous Cretan house, lots of flowers and plants, sweet and inviting dining area/kitchen, plus the outside yoga deck is great for classes. Very relaxed and peaceful atmosphere.
Dion is a kind and sweet person, as well as being a dedicated and fun teacher. Maria is a wonderful lady with exceptional cooking skills.

"Body&Soul retreat "
the effort that the retreat’s owner and the instructor put to create a group in the time out of yoga class without obligation but with the option to be part of it . it gave the idea to be with friends and family even if we have never met before .

"A hidden gem"
It is with immense joy that I recommend Yoga on Crete. Eugenia and Federica were exceptional instructors and took us on a wonderful journey of discovery. The retreat was expertly designed with plenty of free time to rest or enjoy the many wonderful beaches nearby and Eugenia was delightfully accommodating with all my requests. Having two expert teachers for a small group of 14 gave us unprecedented individual attention during the class. Maria's food topped it all for me. It was plentiful and fabulous and mostly coming from her organic farm. Eugenia, Federica and Maria are such sunny and caring people that it was impossible not to feel at ease straight away. I also immensely enjoyed the company of the other participants who came from allover Europe. I will forever cherish the memory of the delightful yoga studio under the cool shade of the olive trees, with the sweet sounds of the countryside drifting through. A few words about the location: Sfakia is a lovely small town a bit away from the beaten path and because of this it was never too crowded even in the heart of summer. Also, while the whole of southern Europe was sweltering in a heat wave, we hardly ever went above 30 C. I consider myself lucky to have discovered Yoga on Crete and hope to be back again.

"An oasis of calm"
Beautiful location and very close to the town centre - whether you decide to stay in the yoga house or neighbouring hotel. Yoga is practised outside on a patio with all props (mats, blocks, belts etc.) provided and usage supervised by the instructors whilst the program itself is suitable for complete beginners in yoga practice. Daily schedule allows for a few hours on a beach or simple "me time" in between AM and PM sessions, with a day off to relax or explore Sfakia further. As Yoga on Crete runs various programs, expectations and results may vary - but I'm sure it will surprise you with something unexpected. Perfect choice for those not so fond of overpopulated mainstream resorts and buzzing nightlife.

The warm, fun and safe space Julie created and the way everybody took this opportunity to truly connect to others. If you need a time to take care of yourself, start some changes and stop hiding from what you are, this retreat could be exactly what you need.
