Yoga Escapes - Yoga Retreat in Crete
We’ve planned a yoga retreat in Crete with yoga classes by the sea and a healthy dose of luxury and pampering. Our yoga terrace is just steps from our private beach, and we’ll be staying at a 5-star hotel with views out to sea and a heavenly spa. Charming Chania town is just a few minutes away and we’ll wander into town most evenings for delicious meals. This is a beautiful part of Crete and we’ll be happy to show you all our favorite places. Our groups are relatively small, normally 10-15 people from all over the world, and many solo travelers. We’ll practice yoga twice a day, with an active Vinyasa flow class in the morning and an evening restorative yoga class at sunset. We love great food and enjoy wine with dinner, we don’t have any restrictions and don’t mind if you sleep in, it’s all part of the holiday! All yoga levels can join. Karen, our yoga teacher, is great at giving options so everyone can practice at their own pace. Come along even if you’re just starting out! What to expect We’ve handpicked our yoga teachers to give you the most amazing yoga classes by the sea, but we also believe that the holiday part is as important as the yoga part. We know the island well and two of us will be there to show you around and take care of everything. We’re very easygoing, we enjoy eating out at delicious restaurants, we’ll plan day trips to beaches and nearby towns, but completely understand if you just want to relax by the pool with a book. Many people join us on their own, it’s your time out so everything is optional, including the yoga classes. If you feel tired and want to skip a class – we won’t judge! The weather in Crete is perfect in early October – warm enough to go for swims and eat at the lovely outdoor tavernas, but not too hot so we can still practice yoga outdoors on our covered terrace. The ideal time of year to visit this wonderful Greek island.
