Dedicated Time and Space to De-Stress, Relax, Renew and Connect
Yoga, Food, Countryside and Relaxation in Beautiful Settings
Charlotte’s retreats are dedicated to guiding you to feel calm, connected, restored, rejuvenated and content. She has been running them for many years and has a reputation for helping students feel present, embodied and able to meet our practice with a smile. Mixing mindfulness and somatic movement within yoga practice and through meditation space and personal exploration, students can find profound and enjoyable ways to let go off the stresses of day-to-day life. All levels are welcome; beginners will feel they have the space and support needed and those with experience the depth to further their practice.
As Charlotte is a Yoga Alliance E-RYT (US) and Yoga Alliance Professional (UK) Senior Yoga Teacher and Teacher Trainer, the taught time on these retreats can count as CPD for yoga teachers.

Yoga & Mindfulness Week –
Kissamos, Crete, Greece
Oct 10-17 2023more info coming soon
Kissamos, also known as Kastelli, is a small town which mostly sells tractors to the local farming community. There is however a network of cobbled streets where you can find shops and cafes leading to an area which overlooks the sea where there are traditional Cretan fish restaurants.
Our yoga venue is on the very outskirts of the small town. Here the sea is clean, warm and shallow making for easy swimming with a long quiet strand of golden sandy beach with occasional shingle. Our beach is called Mavros Molos and the yoga space is above the beach looking out to sea.
Apart from sunbathing, swimming, snorkelling and yoga you can visit ancient ruins, take a day cruise, explore the Venetian town of Chania, walk gorges or just be still and enjoy the ocean.
This yoga hotel is really lovely, with great service and truly lovely staff. The swimming pool is big enough to properly swim with a small bar beside the pool, which also serves snacks and amazing fresh pomegranate frozen juice ‘slushies’. It also has two yoga shalas which overlook a pomegranate field, which is where the yoga sessions will take place and a Turkish tree house where students can relax.
