Ashtanga Yoga Retreat
Triopetra | Crete
with Andrea Lutz
October 14th – 28th 2023
We are very happy to be able to invite you in autumn to one of our Ashtanga Yoga retreats in the beautiful south of Crete. The secluded area and the absence of main tourism, with the long beaches and untouched nature, is a perfect surrounding for our retreat.
The place is situated directly on a cliff above the beach of Triopetra. A little paradise with white sandy beaches and mountain blue water of the Libyan Sea. The guesthouse is a traditional Taverna, run by the same family for over 30 years. Pavlos´ place is renowned for its friendliness and its delicious vegeterian, homemade Cretan food.
Triopetra is a remote place with special and strong energy where you can recharge on all levels.
We will start the day with a 20 min sitting in silence, only accompanied with the sound of the sea. After a short break, Andrea will offer a Pranayma session for about 30 min. The Pranayama sequence will be built up day by day over the whole period. What enables everybody to join.
Followed by traditional Ashtanga Yoga class in Mysore Style, on Friday Andrea will offer a led class in the original sanskirt counting.
in the afternoons there will be a workshop with different topics.
- the techniques of Ashtanga Yoga
- Micromovements & stretches
- weight and cravity (getting upside down)
- Partner work
- Yin Yoga & deep relaxation
and every day we have some time for Discussions and applied Yoga Philosophy.
All levels of students are welcome to join the retreat. Previous experience in Ashtanga Yoga is recommended. Andrea is teaching Primary, Intermediate and Advanced A series, and can help and support you wherever your practice is in the moment.

You can choose to stay in a double or in a tripple room. Single rooms are limited and mostly gone fast. All rooms have an aircondition and a balcony with a stunning view of the Libyan Sea.
