    "My three-week yoga retreat was a time of learning, letting go of some baggage, making new friends, exploring the gorges and beaches of Crete and finally a breakthrough! I am a different person to the one that first arrived. I am so thankful to YogaOnCrete for the opportunity to make this happen"

    "Location: Chofra Sfakion is beautiful with plenty of relaxation space on the rocky, clear beaches and the locals are very friendly. Warning, this is not a place to party, as it is a small village with a few restaurants, beaches, and boat rides to offer."

    "Housing: The YogaOnCrete house is wonderful. If staying in a shared room, request the upstairs room for the beautiful view and porch! I stayed during July so it became quite hot during the night, so request a fan. The food was tasty and perfect for vegetarians and vegans, alike. However, don't upset the chef!"

    "Yoga Teacher: Federica is a lovely person - very lively, funny, and spontaneous. You can tell she cares about people, yoga, and her beautiful little daughter, Maya. "

    "Teaching Style: I chose to do the Hatha Flow course and it was too relaxing for my tastes. If you wish for a relaxing, spontaneous type of yoga which focuses on alignment, body awareness, and movement, you would probably enjoy this session. If you wish for more of a challenging or rigorous course set-up you should probably book a different session or elsewhere."

    "YogaOnCrete was amazing! It was simplistic living with depth. I went with my mom, which was a great way to connect more as women (I'm 25). The house was beautiful, set in a small village, but with everything you need to unwind and relax. The food from the in-house chef was out of this world. Being a vegan, it was not only nice to have choices but to have absolutely delicious choices was a dream. I have come home with the desire to be more adventurous with my food and by no means have I ever wanted to cook. The trainers - well they were so kind, hospitable and knowledgeable about all the poses and had some great life lessons. Eugenia and Frederica made it for me, they had a light and they could see ours and with every moment with them, you could tell they could see yours. This was not a retreat with a bit of yoga for me, this holiday was life changing. I have meditated every day since being back, and I do yoga once a week (I'm an utter gym cardio freak so this is enough for me as I like intense workouts). I don't want to do anything that is a disservice to my body - eat crap, not move, drink a lot. I definitely look after my body even more now. I also now take time out of every day, unscheduled, and think on the spot what do I want to do - which is how I'm writing this. Please come to this - you may not have the experience I've had but I can only share this for me - it was amazing!"

    "My overall experience with YogaOnCrete was magical! A perfect balance of vacation and training. The food was fantastic even though I am not a vegetarian. I would happily return next year and highly recommend this retreat to people that love the beach, quiet places, and raki (great hard alcohol)!"

    "Host Eugenia created a real gem of a retreat by the sea. I stayed at YogaOnCrete in July and absolutely loved it. It is located in a very peaceful place. I had an amazing Princess suite with the sea view from the toilet! The whole house was beautifully decorated and very well maintained. Yoga classes under the olive trees were challenging and very enjoyable. Meditation by the sea was my favourite. Biggest praises to Joshua's cooking which was of a very high standard, imaginative and healthy. There was a good selection of beaches around. Marble beach was especially exciting. Great experience, will highly recommend to yoga and good food lovers. Million thanks to Eugenia and her team for creating heaven on Earth."

Everything was well organized, the social skills of all participants outstanding, culinary options a dream! The week was a unique and wonderful experience, there is nothing to change or improve. It was wonderful as it was!"

    "Although I could only stay here for 5 days, I feel completely refreshed. Not that I am excited about going back to the city and office, but I do feel ready to go back to work and face new challenges. I also recovered from my chronic fatigue."

    "How can I begin to express the transformation and revelation that this week has been? Soul-food indeed. Such wonderful, open, warm people, exquisite surroundings, and days and nights full of sunshine and laughter. I feel blessed. I have found muscles I never knew existed, swam in clear, healing waters, gazed upon unbelievably beautiful sunsets, eaten truly amazing feasts, given myself permission to just do nothing, shared laughter and genuine warmth and love all around - and slept more than I knew possible! Do keep this precious place just as it is, so when I next come back, the journey may continue. Bless you, all. Thank you."

    "The whole week has been a truly amazing experience - the yoga, the village, the surroundings, but most especially, the people and the wondrous spirit imparted. It has been a true awakening and the recognition of inner self and stillness. Everybody has been a true inspiration."

    "Dion and Victoria have managed to transmit their enthusiasm and love for what they do and live during this week. As a student, you can feel their enthusiasm, love, and commitment all the time - during class and outside of class. Very knowing, competent teaching in an extremely open, humorous, caring way - wonderful general atmosphere. Thank you so much for this very special week!"

    "Words can't really explain the magical experience I have had here with you, so I'm not going to be able to get it across on this page but thank you so much for one of the most wonderful, peaceful experiences of my life. It truly has been magical, from the company to the yoga, to the landscape and house, oh, the food, tea, and sea as well. My room was fit for a princess, truly beautiful. The house is entirely peaceful. I'll go back having learned enough to prompt myself to change my life for the better."

    "What a lovely group of people! I have loved this experience and that is what it has been, much more than a holiday, a truly healing experience. I really enjoyed it and wouldn't change anything. It has felt like family."
