The house is an old stone house with garden and view to the Libyan Sea from all the rooms. There is space in the garden for relaxation in many private places. They have restored all rooms to the original style of the house with natural stone, giving a refreshing feeling for the summer.

There are 3 double rooms which will be shared during the retreats all with mosquito nets and natural Coco-mat mattresses. Apart from the retreats, you can use also the yoga shala for private practice. The bathrooms are one closed shower with an old olive tree inside and one outside shower under the fig tree, as well various toilets and sinks. There is a space for having breakfast and dinner.

They also have a small house separate from the main one which they rent when they are full in the center (3 minutes' walk) with kitchen, bathroom, living room, and terrace. There are two double rooms and they can be used as single room to rent with extra fee (the price is slightly higher there and needs a minimum of 2 people) and one more outside house for 2 people.

Program

These are 8 days that you give to find yourselves, supported by the healing energy of Crete, the island of light.

This is a seminar in which you immerse yourselves deeply by practicing yoga and mindfulness every morning from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. starting with guided meditation, breathing exercises, and asanas.

After that, there is a delicious brunch every day and the first 2 days, you have lots of free time until you start with more asanas and yoga Nidra on the first afternoon at 5.30 p.m.

The following afternoon is free and you can spend the time as you wish, go to the beach or go hiking etc. There is no dinner here as on the other days.

On the following 3.5 days, you dive even deeper into the silence. You do your practice in the morning in silence and you will also spend the rest of the day in silence, with yourselves and your deepest being. You will discover who you are when the outside talking disappears and it is silent within you.

At 12 o’clock after the brunch, there is a video satsang (“meeting with the truth”) from one of the great masters who walked or walks here on this planet and lead you deep into the truth (approx. 1 hour) afterwards you have time for yourself and your own introspection.

In the afternoon at 5.30 p.m. you will again enjoy yoga, breathing exercises, yoga Nidra, and also a sound journey with Tibetan bowls one afternoon and at 7 p.m. there will be a delicious dinner (vegetarian, Cretan and Indian cuisine, all organic and bought from local traders).

One evening after dinner there is a walking meditation to a beautiful vantage point nearby with kirtan afterwards and on the other evenings there is the possibility of one-on-one conversation if necessary.

During your free time, you have the opportunity to be here and enjoy the various private places or to go for a walk or simply to relax with a massage or Reiki (reading spiritual books is permitted).

On the day before you leave, you break the silence after the Satsang and you are welcome to go to the beach again and enjoy the sea and then either for yourself or as you want to spend the evening there (there is no dinner tonight either).

On the day of departure, you meet again in the morning in the yoga shala for meditation and a conclusion circle (white fire ceremony and more).

Included excursions

  • One evening after dinner there is a walking meditation to a beautiful vantage point nearby with kirtan afterwards

Location

Om Shanti Yoga & Holidays welcomes you to the retreat place which is located in a small mountain village called Amiras (around 550 meters high) at the south coast of Crete, the island of light. This area has the quietness of the mountains and the vastness of the Libyan Sea just in front of the house. The energy is so pure, amazing, and therefore perfect for yoga retreats, yoga holidays, Satsang, or any other holiday.

Maybe some questions about yourself and life will be answered through the stillness of the place and the harmonic energy around the retreat center. You can hike in one of the only pine forests in Crete or relax on one of the most beautiful beaches.

There are Minoan temples and gorges in the area. It is still like Crete of many years ago with empty beaches and nice places to visit. There are also some small villages for shopping etc. and beautiful taverns located along the seafront. Sunbeds and umbrellas are still provided for free in most places.

You can relax here. Let the soul dangle and come back into harmony with what you really are. The place radiates a harmonizing and healing energy that your soul desperately needs in this hectic time.

Om Shanti Yoga & Healing Crete is located 60 km from Heraklion airport. You can come by bus or they can transfer you to the center or arrange a car for rent.
