I first visited Paleochora, a small Cretan village, when I was a baby with my Mama. It immediately became an annual ritual. The magic and beauty of this unique place has continued to draw me back ever since. To me this village is a home away from home, and I have never quite managed to express to others the charm and appeal that this place holds for me. Finally, I am lucky enough to seize the opportunity to share it's unique enchantment. I am so excited to share this new journey with each one of you, in which we will both individually, and collectively, experience unforgettable moments in this special part of the world. By the end of the week, I hope to have each of you refreshed, having deepened your yoga practice, and taking with you a memorable adventure.

I have planned the week to ensure that there will be a balance of exploration, routine, fun and time to rejuvinate your souls and bodies.

- Free time to explore the village, and choose from some of the many activities on offer - biking, surfing and much more.
- Lunch á la plage!
- Sunset yoga and mediation
- Guided outings to local attractions
- Silent hike
By day seven, I hope to have created an environment where you can embrace yourself and feel comfortable. You can make this retreat anything you need it to be - simply jump into the unknown with an open heart!
There are many beautiful paths to take evening strolls with magical views.
Our guided outings are a great way to get to see some very special places in Crete. Our trip to The Samaria Gorge (16KM hike) will be a day where we concentrate on immersing ourselves in nature and practice walking meditation in silence. By choosing to forgo friendly chit-chat and instead explore what it's like to walk in the wilderness without speaking, we have a chance to engage our senses more fully and to truly connect with the environment around us.
Elafonisi Beach has been described as "The Caribbean in Europe"! The white sands and turquoise water will instantly take your breath away and will be the perfect setting for our greek home-prepared picnic.

The Punnet Health Store will be providing us with some delicious healthy treats for our hikes!

If you plan on making a two week break out of it and extending your stay in Crete, there are many other villages and sites to visit. You will most likely be flying out of Chania so if you could include a few days there before your departure I promise you wouldn't regret it. It has to be one of my favourite cities, with its picturesque streets and has clearly preserved to a great extent the distinctive atmosphere and charm of the venetian and turkish periods.
