Here are some miscellaneous questions we have been asked, starting with the weather!

What’s the weather like?
The weather is normally lovely but bring a jumper for cooler evenings at the beginning and end of the season. Check this website for average Crete temperatures.

Happily on the South coast, particularly in our valley at Agios Pavlos, we experience a cooler mid-summer and a drier, sunnier Spring and Autumn than Crete’s averages – check for a daily forecast specific to our area.

What massage services do you have?
There is always at least one kind of massage. We think it vital that a high quality massage is available for you at Yoga Rocks to complete your relaxation. We have incredibly talented masseurs ranging from oil massage and Thai massage to deep healing.

Are you really on the beach?
The retreat is just above the beach. Steps down to a small cove mean you can be in the water or on sand in 2 minutes. Check Yoga Rocks goes to the beach. The main beach is 3-4 minutes. 10-15 minutes allows you to reach a untouched wild or ‘yoga beach’.

Are there watersports?
You can snorkel and swim at Yoga Rocks but there are no motorised water sports nearby. We have snorkels, masks and flippers you can borrow.

Is there wifi available?
The internet connection is fine normally though can be slow if we lose the main signal and are forced to resort to the backup system. On the backup system, which we use less and less often these days, downloading and streaming are not possible.

What nationalities do you have at the retreat?
We have people from all over the world. Some teachers have a greater following in specific countries. In our experience people’s nationalities melt away at the retreat and often you can expect upwards of 7 nationalities on any yoga holiday.

What is the average age?
We’ve had guests from 0-80 years old. We welcome all ages and there is something for all ages every yoga retreat. Different teachers tend to attract younger or more mature guests. Write to us for more info.
