Yoga Plus is situated in the bay of Agios Pavlos on the southern coast of Crete. The nearest town is Agia Galini, approximately 15km away.
Yoga Plus, is a place for relaxation, enjoyment, discovery and personal growth. Set in one of the most dramatically beautiful and unspoiled spots on earth, this is a very special place, and there are many reasons to appreciate it other than what is on offer at Yoga Plus. The bay and beyond are eminently explorable, with interesting rock formations and caves. There are miles of sandy beaches to walk along, with the promise of a taverna never too far away.
Unmarked trails wind up to mountainous lookout spots. While the bay itself is generally sheltered and calm the place is often described as elemental and the sometimes crazy winds take your breath away, while the waves curl or crash against the beaches.
Yoga novice or experienced practitioner, the teachers will guide and assist you. The whole concept of Yoga Plus is to be completely unpressured and to provide the opportunity for you to relax and discover your potential. It is magical and rewarding to see any stresses and tension melt away over the course of a Yoga Plus holiday. All our teachers are experts in their field and come because they enjoy the Yoga Plus experience as much as the guests.
