The venue is a unique traditional villa in Prines village in Rethimno municipality, very spacious and warm, where already trainings and retreats of Yoga and More School have taken place in the past. The venue is surrounded by a full green environment, remoted from the city noise. It is four kilometers away from the sea and five kilometers from the town of Rethymno. The venue is a traditional stone-built house on three levels surrounded by a quiet, natural green environment ideal for relaxing and serene yoga practice.

Located in the village of Prines, the villa is just four kilometers from Rethymno town and only 10 minutes driving from the nearest sandy beach of Episkopi. Amenities can be found within walking distances from the villa such as a mini-market. Traditional taverns and a beautiful café are expecting you to experience Cretan tastes and the hospitality of the village. Feel the combination of tradition and luxury in Villa Kalliopi and enjoy your teacher training in Creta. It can accommodate a small proportion of guests, so they keep the special attendance they need and a friendly atmosphere. You can choose to stay in a double or twin room.

Program

Using the wisdom of yoga and ancient practices, you will find relaxation, nourishment, and transformation. In these challenging times for the world, you need some personal shift and change. You can do this using the tool of yoga and meditation while you navigate this new terrain.

When you come back to the self, you can be grounded, centered, and in connection with your intrinsic nature. On a collective and personal level, you are passing from a rebirthing, as old patterns of thinking and behaving are being moved through this paradigm shift. While you face this time of deep healing and change, you can work with the ancient sacred practices of yoga to become more embodied and more at present.

Yoga and More School lead by Eva Kirmizaki has been organizing since 2015 deep transformational retreats in Greece in various locations, such as Crete, Peloponnese, and Greek Islands as well as in different settings, eco-retreats, sailing retreats, and teacher training retreats.
