The view of Agios Pavlos bay to Yoga Rocks from beach taverna

The whole Yoga Rocks team are delighted to be your hosts for an incredible retreat. Expect life enhancing yoga and fabulous food at Agios Pavlos, Crete in 2019! Helen and Phil continue to lead the team in a hands on manner ensuring all desires are catered for. We have explored an unusually large as well as varied selection of places around the globe and have been together for more than twenty years. We grew up in England, though have lived outside the UK since the end of the 90s.

Since 2010 we spent summers in Triopetra, just along the coast from Agios Pavlos, and look forward to using all our considerable experience and resources to make your yoga retreat a holiday from which you will return feeling refreshed and revitalised.

Helen Reavill teaching and running retreats at Yoga Rocks, Agios Pavlos

Phil, whose father was from Crete, worked with tourists for many years, occasionally taught yoga and practised Thai Yoga massage before beginning to run retreats almost 10 years ago. He feels forcing life or yoga is counter productive.  Phil hopes you’ll enjoy the Yoga Rocks ride and find the progression you’ve stopped looking for.

Helen’s fascination with yoga began as a child and by the age of 20 a more intense interest in yoga was emerging. From here, her practice gradually started to develop into a lifestyle. Ten years on a teacher training in 2005 awakened a deep dedication for showing people how a practice which begins on the mat can lead to a happier and more balanced existence in the real world.

Before Yoga Rocks Helen spent five years teaching yoga, primarily in Amsterdam, as well as shorter stints in more tropical locations like Thailand and Jamaica.

Love At Yoga Rocks Retreat In Greece

We have an ever changing team of incredible helpers that return year after year. Constantly amazed by their supportive enthusiasm we are incredibly grateful to them all. Everyone brings their own unique qualities and energies, engaging with the guests and helping make the retreat experience an unforgettably amazing holiday.

At Yoga Rocks we celebrate the similarities between yoga styles rather than looking for the superficial differences. The teachers we invite have in common a wish to spread BIG love, openness and joy. We love the highs of the physical and other yoga practices, but also understand how taking this energy out of the retreat to brighten the lives of those who we love, as well as those who we may not love quite so much, is the where the real challenge begins.
