Are you working from home and fancy a better view? Do you want to lie on the beach and look at the sky on your lunch break? Come and live at Yoga Rocks for a while!
We are offering long term stays here over Autumn. This includes amazing food and daily yoga with Helen or the retreat teacher at the time. Guests taking advantage of this in July and into August found a good work/play balance. They got their work done in double quick time, energised by the good food and yoga, loving the space to explore the beaches and enjoy the freetime and good company.
What’s the idea behind this?
There are a lot of folk who’ve been stuck working at home alone during lock down or generally isolated. If you have been feeling a bit stuck, have cooked everything in your repertoire and your inspiration for practising alone has expired then this could be ideal for you.
Maybe you are concerned of a second lockdown and don’t fancy spending the Autumn in your flat, lacking company, contact or the will to make it to your computer?
We offder a discount rate – almost a half priced stay here for those joining for the long term. We have a few guests who’ve settled in. The retreat can become like home for a while without the housework. When there’s a more immersive retreat programme you can also join. If there’s no scheduled retreat we’ll still be eating delicious food and will at the minimum have a morning class timed so those doing office work can log in on time following a practice, breakfast and a swim.
The long term stay option allows a degree of relaxation in Corona times – South Crete is currently corona free. We’ve never had a case on the South coast. This means we can enjoy company and a degree of community that many are in sore need of. Long term stayers should enjoy a feeling of safety difficult elsewhere – the retreat will be carefully run with this in mind. We see this being a unique opportunity for those who want to work on their practice and suntan, or city workers with office work who fancy doing it from a place of peace, simply wanting to enjoy good food and a swim between work hours.
We had a stable broadband connection installed in the early summer. It’s helping facilitate this long stay option for the people with online work. Guests are conference calling hassle free on the new connection – it’s like they are home just with with the swimming breaks on the doorstep. The long stay option we’d like to offer through September and October – possibly even longer into the Autumn/Winter.
Corona is re-emerging through Europe and we are expecting the possibility of renewed curtailment of movement 🙁 If you are here you can always leave, if you are not here and Greece closes once again of course you can’t get involved!
While a full retreat programme is running from 15 August it will be a slightly different option to the morning only class we ran through July into August. If it’s of interest please email us to discuss the long stay options – we can keep you informed as needed or hopefully make it work and enjoy some time together.
