Iyengar Yoga and Sea Kayaking in Crete

Event Description:

Yoga, with Julie Anderson

Senior Iyengar Yoga Teacher

Yoga is planned every day of your stay for you to benefit most from a regular practice, whilst soaking up the warmth of Autumn in Crete.

As well as a late afternoon session on your day of arrival and a morning session on your day of departure yoga will be twice daily during your stay. The rhythm of the holiday will start with 2 hours of morning yoga, taken inside, while late afternoon yoga will be practised on the beach, for you to be more fully in touch with the elements of sand and sea while you practice.

Julie is very experienced in arranging sequences of yogasanas (poses) which help balance your energy and improve focus for you to fully enjoy your holiday along the beautiful coastline of Southern Crete each day. You can also expect to be introduced to some pranayama (breathing exercises) as part of your practice.

Julie has been teaching Iyengar yoga for 27 years and has trained with the Iyengar Family, in India, on many occasions. She currently runs classes and workshops from her studio in Scotland, Yoga on Tay, and is also a qualified Assessor, Teacher Trainer and Mentor with the professional body, Iyengar Yoga (UK).

Yoga is an intrinsic part of the joy of Julie’s life not just “on the mat” but also when playing with grandchildren and when out rock climbing, kayaking, skiing etc. People love her teaching, and we are delighted to have her as our guest teacher. She has taught several yoga holidays abroad in the past. This however, will be the first joint activity holiday and you can be assured that the yoga will be designed to complement your daytime activity whether it be kayaking or hiking.

Sea Kayaking with Enjoy-Crete

Between Yoga sessions we will offer to the group sea kayaking coaching sessions along with short trips in the magnificent area of Sfakia.
Depending the group skills and experience we will have the option to split the group if required to cover either longer distances or to cover different subjects in coaching.
At the end of your holidays you will be able to track and manoeuvrable the kayak and also to perform at least one deep water rescue.

In case of bad weather (too wavy/windy) we will try to hike instead of kayaking. There are several wonderful hikes in the area near to the sea or up to the mountains.

Sea kayaking is optional, if someone feels tired or wants to relax on the beach of course you are welcome to!
If you decide to stay on the beach you are welcome to borrow a snorkel to explore the underwater world.
