Luxury 5* Yoga Retreat in Crete, Greece

We’ve planned a wonderful luxury yoga retreat in Crete at a 5-star hotel on the beach, with daily yoga by the sea, delicious meals, seaview rooms, spa treatments, boat trips, and a very relaxed atmosphere.

 

You’ll get to practice two yoga classes a day, with plenty of time in between to explore Crete or relax on the beach, followed by dinners in wonderful restaurants. No restrictions on food or drinks, we don’t get up terribly early for yoga, day trips and excursions are all optional – it’s a true holiday in a beautiful place with amazing yoga.

 

Crete is warm and sunny in May, and the summer lasts until well into October – the perfect times of year to visit. And Chania is the most stunning town in Crete, with a gorgeous Venetian harbor, old town, and colorful pedestrian streets – a must see.

 

Two of us from Yoga Escapes will be there with the group to take care of everything. We welcome solo travelers, and all yoga levels from beginners to yoga teachers.

Teacher/Yoga

We’ll offer two yoga classes a day – a 1.5 hour Vinyasa flow class in the morning and a one hour Yin yoga class at sunset. The morning classes are active and invigorating, while the evening classes are more restorative; holding poses longer to allow for a deeper stretch, ending with a longer relaxation. All the classes will be held outdoors just steps from the sea in a gorgeous setting.

 

The yoga holiday is suitable for all yoga levels. The highly experienced yoga teachers Sarah Scott and Tania Brown will modify classes and poses for beginners, and they'll challenge the more advanced yogis. So whether you’re new to yoga or looking to develop a deeper practice, you can practice at your own pace.

We’ll be staying in Superior Seaview rooms at a 5* adults-only hotel located on a peaceful beach just minutes from Chania town. The hotel has a modern contemporary look, with two swimming pools and a private beach, along with a high-end spa offering massages, facials, and all sorts of pampering treatments. There is also a sauna and a steam room, indoor pool and Jacuzzi, gym, and a range of indoor and outdoor fitness classes. 

Meals

Crete is well known for its delicious fresh and healthy food. We’ll plan a group dinner at a different restaurant each evening, and we’ll offer recommendations depending on the mood of the group. We don’t have any rules on food and we enjoy wine with meals. We’ll take the group into Chania town for dinner most evenings, and some other evenings we’ll have dinner at one of the restaurants on the beach near the hotel.

 

Activities:

There is plenty to do in Crete in between yoga classes: boat trips, hiking along a gorge, visiting a nearby fishing village or beach, massages and detoxifying facials, boutique shopping, a stroll in lovely Chania town, or going for a refreshing swim on our own private beach.

 

We look forward to having you join our Crete yoga holidays, For more information, please visit Crete Yoga Retreat.
