We are very happy to invite you to one of our Ashtanga Yoga retreats in the beautiful south of Crete.
The retreat center 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 wild beauty and the secluded beaches will help us to make your stay unforgettable. 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 Cretan food.
Triopetra is a remote place with special and strong energy where you can recharge on all levels. We are coming here now for more then 10 years, and we always want to stay longer…..
