Crete Yoga Retreat
31st May - 7th June / 30th Sept - 7th Oct
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.

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.
Well, here I am! I have been practicing yoga for nearly 7 years and over two years ago I took the leap leaving home for the east coast of Mexico, to complete my 200 hour YTT. I am certified as a Vinyasa, Yin and Hatha yoga instructor but my classes mainly focus on the Vinyasa tradition. On this retreat, our time on our mats concentrate on a workshop style class where we can deepen our knowledge, discovering our strengths, facing our weaknesses, and connecting to the happiness that lies within.
Aris, unlike other hotels, is called an “art hotel” for good reason. In the outside and inside spaces of the hotel, there is an open gallery of excellent handmade art items, made by the artists of the family. Apart from the art items, the architecture of the hotel – for both the building and the lush gardens – compliments the art profile of aris hotel. Every year many of our beloved guests say how stunned they are by our magnificent hotel gardens.
