The perfect yoga beach retreat: escape to sunny Crete

Yoga class in Crete buy the sea.

A yoga beach holiday on sunny Crete – a truly special escape.

We spent two wonderful yoga weeks in Crete this past May and October with fantastic groups from all over the world – yoga by the sea, gorgeous hotel on the beach, delicious food, and so many great memories. We had a very international crowd once again – one person joined us all the way from New Zealand, as well as two French ladies living in Switzerland, we had an American in our group, as well as a Russian, a Chinese gentleman, one lady from the UK, an Italian… a real mix.

It’s always so interesting to meet people from all over and with so many different backgrounds. That’s what we enjoy most about our yoga retreats – the people we meet, the conversations we have, and the experiences we share together during the yoga week.

As one of our repeat participants, Lynne, puts it: “You are creating communities of like-minded people from all over the world. We come together for a week of fun and yoga practice, and emerge a bonded, loving band of friends. This is something extraordinary”.


We’re going back from the 30 September – 7 October 2017

We can’t wait to take another group back to Crete in October 2017 for more yoga by the sea and lazy days on the beach. As always, we’ll be staying in seaview rooms at our lovely 5* hotel, we’ll practice yoga by our private beach, pamper ourselves with massages and spa treatments, and go into town for delicious meals and a stroll. The perfect late summer escape and a wonderful yoga week in the sun!


Here are some pictures from our yoga holiday in Crete in May 2016:

A real holiday break

It’s worth mentioning that this is more of a yoga holiday than a yoga retreat – you can eat and drink what you like, you can skip a yoga class, we won’t judge. We’ll be there with the group to plan day trips and dinners, but everything is optional – up to you!

Summer weather in October

The weather in Crete in October is perfect – sunny days, warm sea for lots of swims, and it’s not too hot so we can still practice yoga outdoors on our terrace.
