Crete Yoga Retreat 2019

29 May - 5 June 

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.  If you would like to see the retreats live in action head over to Rosemary MacCabe's youtube channel

Samaria Gorge

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. 


Vinyasa Flow

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 Hotel

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.


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

Sunrise yoga
Daily breakfast including fresh local produce
Free time to explore the village, and choose from some of the many activities on offer - biking, kayaking and much more. 
Lunch includes an array of traditional Cretan dishes
Sunset yoga and meditation
Guided outings to local attractions
Hiking excursions

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!
