Ashtanga Yoga-Meditation & Hiking Retreat – Crete, Greece

September 16 – 23, 2017
$2200 (non-refundable deposit due by July 15, 2017)

We’re off for 7 days of trekking in Crete, walking through this ancient landscape and swimming in the warm waters of the eastern Mediterranean Sea. Our well-being is assured – each day we enjoy the locally grown simple and healthy Cretan food – and are inspired to slow down by the way of life here. Many of the villages we visit for the last week of the trek are accessible only by foot or boat, nicely removing us from our everyday world but still allowing our bags to be transported by boat and us the luxury of walking with day packs. Crete’s cultural treasures give us an insight into the Minoan, Roman, Persian, Greek, and Venetian civilizations who have all left traces here. The wisdom of the 3000-year-old olive trees will seep into our subconscious as we walk!

  • Coastal walking with an amazing 2000m summit and the famous Samariah gorge. • Daily yoga and meditation practice with Jade Skinner
  • Walk along the paths of ancient Mediterranean civilizations
  • Enjoy the famous healthy, varied and delicious Cretan diet
  • Discover ancient fishing villages and shepherding traditions • Swim in the turquoise and azure blue waters
  • Boat or walking only access from Agia Roumeli (Day 7)
  • Your bags transported by boat
