A yoga retreat is much more than a holiday
7 days on the Southern edge of Europe
It is a journey of joy, self discovery and transformation. It is a chance to deeply renovate oneself in a group of like-minded yogis, to detoxify the body and the mind, and to open to new dimensions in life!
Days will begin with morning meditation and an uplifting yoga practice that will increase clarity and energy flows as well as lay down the foundation for a wonderful day to unfold. In the afternoon the practice will be more calming, grounding and centering, ending with much pranayama and nurturing relaxation time. There will be plenty of free time to visit different places of the beautiful Southern Crete or to relax on the gorgeous beaches of St. Pavlos. The program will consist of a series of practices that strengthen the body, calm the mind and lead us to experience a more harmonious and balanced state of existence. It includes plenty of meditation and pranayama, both easy and more challenging asana sessions, therapeutics for lower back, neck, shoulders, wrists and ankles, kriya practices, chakra awareness, and deep relaxation. All yoga will be suitable for everyone, thanks to Maja's years of experience with mixed level classes, her broad knowledge of the students' needs, and skilful adaptation of all poses so that they benefit each student. The family run Agios Pavlos hotel can be found on the southern coast of crete, in a region of exceptional natural beauty. Rugged and unspoilt, the area offers breathtaking scenery and glorious beaches making this a very special place to visit. Overlooking the stunning bay of agios pavlos the hotel has a fine restaurant, a relaxed café/bar and a mini market so you don't have to leave for any of your holiday essentials!

Descend to one of the most amazing beaches of Crete, called St. Pavlos Sandhills, offering spectacular sunsets.
Enjoy the sunset view from the comfort of your room or at the yoga veranda.
Hike the beautiful gorges of Rethymno. Kourtaliotis (length: 3 km) is one of the most spectacular natural attractions of Rethymnon.The huge cliffs of the canyon reach a height of 600 meters and are full of caves, where significant fauna species live.
Visit Beach of Preveli, also known as Lake Preveli or Phoenix. During the 60s and 70s, it was a favorite destination for hippies. On the banks of the Grand River there is a large colony of Theophrastus palm trees, which give the region a sense of an African landscape. The river, forming a large lake, 1.5km long, before emptying into the sea, has water all year round. You can walk along the river, under the shade of palm trees and other trees, and start ascending in the beautiful canyon.
