The training takes place overlooking the awesome bay of Agios Pavlos in South Crete. The hotel is located on a small cliff with great views of the picturesque sandy beach with lovely warm and crystal clear blue waters. The beach is only 50 meters from the rooms while incredible stretches of sand dunes lie only 10 minutes walk away. The region is one of exceptional natural beauty.

Rugged and unspoiled, the area offers breathtaking scenery and glorious beaches making this a very special place to visit. The rooms are available for single or twin use. (Note: Yoga Therapy Greece can find someone to share if you are on your own). All rooms have an en-suite bathroom, air-con, a balcony, and a great sea view.

Agios Pavlos Hotel is a friendly family run hotel and includes a fine restaurant, a cafe-snack bar and the bar The Cave.


You will explore the principles and the practices that were delivered by Krishnamacharya to his son Desikachar and from Desikachar to Gary Craftosw and from Gary Kraftsow to Evi Dimitriadou, the leading yoga therapist in these yoga therapy training and founder of Yoga Therapy Greece.

This training is for yoga instructors who want to give therapeutic yoga classes for specific conditions and muscular imbalances without deepening their knowledge in yoga therapy (see also the 200-hour yoga therapy training offering), they can attend only this short but intensive Viniyoga course that will add another perspective into their teaching.
