Yoga holidays and accommodation – Why Chania and Crete stand out
Location, location, location. This quote is notably true for your yoga holidays and accommodation. And most possibly the best thing Chania and Crete offer is one of the greatest locations in the world for practicing yoga.
Chania is a blessed place, where you can find some of the best beaches in Europe and the Mediterranean. What’s more, apart from the flagship beaches that attract holiday-makers in droves, there are literally countless other “hidden gem” beaches, that are very remote and ideal for yoga.
Also, Chania and Crete also have their mountainous side. In the centre of the island there are tall, scenic mountains, like the imposing White Mountains of Chania, where the incredible Samaria Gorge, the longest gorge in Europe is located. These mountainous regions essentially offer a very different land and culture to the visitor; a land where both your yoga holidays and your yoga accommodation are a very different experience than the one in the beach areas of Crete.
Another great reason to choose Chania and Crete for your yoga holidays is the distinct positive energy that flows endlessly on the island. Far too many visitors have felt it, and it’s one of the main reasons that bring so many repeat visitors back to Chania and Crete year after year.
There may be different explanations for this fine energy you can feel all over the island. Maybe it has to do with Crete being the cradle of the European civilization, with the Minoan civilization that flourished in the island about 6.000 years ago. Maybe it has to do with all the cultural influences of the island, as being in the crossroads of three continents (Europe, Asia and Africa) led through the centuries to a unique mix of very different cultures. Maybe it has to do with the very interesting mentality of the Cretans, who have managed through time to create and retain an everyday philosophy of living that is at the same time down-to-earth and bigger-than-life.
All in all, Chania and Crete are easily among the best places in the world to go on your next yoga holidays. And the fact that they also offer a large variety of different accommodation options, and an excellent infrastructure for travellers, makes the island an irresistible yoga destination.
