We may offer long term stays in summer 2021 and there is a slim possibility of even winter 2020/21 stays becoming possible. If you’re working from home and fancy a better view with perks it could be for you. Do you want to lie on the beach and swim on your lunch break? Come and live at Yoga Rocks for a while!

This option would in the summer would include amazing food and daily yoga with Helen or the retreat teacher at the time. Guests taking advantage of this in 2020 found a good work/play balance. They got their work done in double quick time. Fully energised by the good food and yoga they found the space to explore the beaches and enjoy the free time relaxing in 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. The retreat can become like home for a while without the housework and with a sense of community rather than an overuse of Netflix.

The long term stay option allows a degree of relaxation in Corona times – South Crete has so far been corona free. We’ve never had a case on the South coast in Rethymno province. 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 relaxed 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 helped facilitate this long stay option for the people with online work. Guests can conference call hassle free on the new connection – it’s like they are home just with with the swimming breaks on the doorstep.

If it’s of interest please email us to discuss the long stay options – we can keep you informed as needed. Hopefully it will work out and we’ll be enjoying some time together. The winter 2020/21 option will most likely not happen but if you want to be kept informed in case it gets off the ground please get in touch also.
