Yoga Adventure in Greece

About us

Yoga, Nature, History, and Culture.
Join Trishna in Kato Zakros, on the eastern side of Crete for daily authentic yoga, exploration of ancient
Minoan ruins, fabulous beaches and swimming, evening meals at the village tavernas, a cooking class,
and lessons in local folk dances with our host Stella Ailamaki.

Being Yoga with Trishna is authentic Yoga with a strong flow element.  Subtle classical practices with breath and meditation are combined with some innovative approaches for a deeply nourishing and revitalizing experience.
Steady practice on retreat  is conducive to self discovery, self reflection, and personal transformation.

Stella and her husband Elias Pagiannides created ‘Stella’s Traditional Apartments’ ten years ago. They offer accommodation that allows for self-catering and keep each studio stocked with the local specialty foods which are the pride of the region. Kato Zakros is renowned for a number of things, two of which are olive oil, and thyme honey. Kato Zakros is rather off the beaten path, a village of 800 people, very lightly touched by the tourism that primarily comes for the 4000 year old Minoan ruins, and the remote and rugged natural beauty of eastern Crete with it’s gorges, caves, history, olive orchards, and lovely, quiet beaches.

Event Highlights

  • Daily Authentic Yoga.
  • Lessons in the Traditional Folks Dance of Greece.
  • A lesson in cooking, in tradtional Greek style.
  • Walking/hiking in the orchards and gorge.
  • Exploring the 4000 year old Minoan Ruins of Kat Zakros.
  • Swimming in the Mediterranean Sea!

Venue Highlights

The 'studios' are set in a garden. Our yoga practice will occur in the shaded grassy areas and courtyard areas of the compound.
Stella's sits adjacent to the Ancient Ruins of Kato Zakros, and short walk to the seashore.
It is a place of beauty and peace.


This retreat is unusual in that meals are not provided, but each accommodation space is stocked with local staples and treats, and has it's own kitchen.
Generally guests at Stella's prepare food from their stocked kitchen and enjoy an evening meal at one of the tavernas on the beach a short walk away. On this retreat we invite guests to do the same.


Stella's Traditional Apartments give its guests a chance to relax into their own rhythym and energy. Each studio houses one or two guests and has it's own bathroom and kitchenette. Stella keeps each kitchen stocked with locally harvested foods and what you might need for breakfast and snacks each day.
