Pitsidia, Crete

14 - 20 SEPTEMBER 2022

Take your time

... for good food, your daily yoga practice, walks in nature, talking to like-minded people or just relaxing by the pool or sea. This retreat gives you the opportunity to learn about healthy rituals that you can take home with you and implement in everyday life. We offer you two yoga classes a day, as well as stimulating workshops, meditation and massages. You choose what it is you need for yourself to bring body and mind into balance.

This retreat is taught in German.

Sometimes you have to go somewhere else to find yourself. Our Inner Balance Retreat offers you a frame for relaxation and recreation as well as guided self-reflection. You will find peace in nature, stimulating conversations, a community that strengthens you, but also enough opportunities to retreat. Here you can just feel - the sun, the wind, the sea and the freedom to think differently.

The retreat team consists of Caro Körner, Vinyasa and Yin Yoga teacher from Hamburg, SLOW editor-in-chief Mareile Braun and psychologist Susanne Jess. Caro helps you start your day with an energetic Vinyasa class in the morning and offers another session of relaxation in the evening. Mareile and Susanne are by your side as coaches and retreat hosts. In group workshops, you will receive feedback from other participants and have the opportunity to network. In individual coaching sessions we work on your individual topics. In addition, you will receive practical tips and suggestions on how you can integrate the impulses of the retreat into your everyday life at home. You get to decide what makes sense and is useful for you.

All sessions (yoga, coaching & workshops) will be held in German.

The villas

The accommodations Villa Psili and Villa Barbara are located above the small village of Pitsidia near Matala, on the south coast of Crete. Both houses stand alone on a hill surrounded by olive trees and offer a beautiful view of the Libyan Sea and the Lefka Ori - the "White Mountains" of Crete. The 360° view of the spectacular nature makes the retreat location a place of relaxation. Both villas have only been rented out since 2018, are luxuriously furnished and offer plenty of retreat space inside and out. Daily breakfast with delicious "Vegan Health Food" is freshly prepared by our cook Ziza Tomic in Villa Barbara. Her vegan restaurant "Green Kukunari" as well as other restaurants, shops and grocery stores can be found in the village of Pitsidia, which is within walking distance. The nearby Komos Beach is great for sunbathing, swimming and morning yoga on the beach.
