Nature Meditation and Outdoor Hatha Yoga Retreats, 'living in the village' experience in Crete :

Combine your holiday with awakening your body, mind and soul on Crete!

 

Cretan land holds a powerful and transformative energy which combined with the spirit of Yoga provides an excellent choice of re-connecting to one's self to rebalance and rejuvenate the system. Our Yoga retreats are situated in Aptera, a lovely Cretan village of historical significance including archaeological sites of Ancient city of Aptera and Koules Castle. The retreat combines views to the White Mountains (Lefka Oroi) and the sea of Souda bay and Apokoronas, with yoga practice outdoors at the garden and in nature!

LocationAptera (or alternative name Megala Chorafia) is a quiet Cretan village in the prefecture of Chania, located on a hilltop overlooking Apokoronas (an area between the towns of Chania and Rethymnon), with a view both to the sea and the White Mountains. The village probably took its name from the ancient city, dedicated to the ancient Greek goddess Artemis 'the Aptera', meaning the one without wings, the grounded, and earthly one.

 

Aptera offers tranquility and peace, and at the same time is a rich energy hub for the visitors. The village has no loud tourist crowds or night life. Two traditional Cretan tavernas and a cafenion are found at the main centre of the village, offering various foods and drinks , including vegetarian or vegan options. At the same centre you may find a local mini market for food shopping. All these are found in about 10 minutes walk from ZenZem and available accommodation options. 

 

Sea: As Aptera is situated on a hilltop, the nearest pebble beach of Kalami and Ag. Giannis may be reached on foot in approximately 30 minutes. For exploring further sandy beaches (about 6km ), including Kalyves and Blue beach (Kyani Akti) renting a car is the best way , however a bus option is also available. The beautiful area of Apokoronas and Chania town centre can be explored also by local buses or car hire. The bus stop of Megala Chorafia is about 20 min walk from the yoga centre. All timetables are available on www.e-ktel.com

 

Transportation: Chania airport is the nearest one - to and from taxi transportation may be arranged at additional cost. Pick-up from local bus stop at Megala Chorafia on your arrival is also possible to arrange if you are coming my Ktel bus. Available local car rental at Poledas Cars https://chaniacars.gr/
