Yoga Rocks occupies a breathtaking location on a small cliff overlooking unspoilt beaches at Triopetra on Crete’s virgin south coast.

Hosts Phil and Helen, both from the UK, offer week-long retreats aimed at deepening yoga practices away from daily routines, under the guidance of renowned yoga retreat teachers.

The yoga menu caters for all types, from active yoga styles like Ashtanga to more “fashionable” approaches such as Vinyasa Flow and Shiva Rea’s Prana Flow.

Meditation, pranayama (breath and energy management) and chanting sessions are often available.

The simple en-suite rooms have stunning balcony or terrace views of the Mediterranean Sea.

Outdoor and indoor yoga shalas, meditation by the beach and healthy food based on the world-renowned Cretan diet all help elevate yoga routines.
