We are very excited to host this training with our friends at YogaRocks Triopetra on Crete, Greece. We have led retreats here the last 2 years in a row and the space is great for a training.
The simple rooms are all double occupancy and each room has it’s own bathroom with toilet and shower.
We will have 3 delicious vegetarian meals per day that will nourish your body for the work we will do.
The retreat center is located on the Southern side of Crete at the end of a long dirt road just above the Mediterranean Sea. There are several beaches within walking distance and lots of nature around. There are no stores, markets, tourist centers, etc near to the retreat… you will need to bring all your personal supplies with you. Sheets and towels are provided throughout.

Students are responsible for their own flights to Crete. Most people arrive by air to Crete into Heraklion airport(HER) or Chania airport(CHQ). They are both equal distances from the retreat and the transfer is about 1 hour 45 minutes. There are also daily ferries from the Greek mainland to Crete. When the group is formed and travel planning begins, we will help you arrange ground transport on Saturday October 6. Most likely, there will be 2 buses to the retreat center that we can arrange but will be paid at your own expense.
Car rental is also possible if you wish to make a group and all contribute.
The investment for this course is: €2050
Includes Yoga training, 3 vegetarian meals per day, shared double room
** There is a small additional expense for 2 Friday night dinners at the local Greek Taberna. This meal costs about €15 – 20 per person… we will go twice. There is NO OTHER MEAL OPTION on Friday nights. So if you don’t come with us, you go to bed without supper ***
