Jivamukti Ashram

Two weeks up to 4 months of yoga experience in the peaceful get-away at Triopetra Crete. Good food, good company and a lot of inspiration are waiting for you at our Crete Ashram. With great anticipation and joy we are looking forward to this upcoming winter and are very grateful to have a chance to practice together and deepen our experience of yoga, mediation, teaching, learning, bhakti, community, creativity, body work, responsible and inspiring relationships, along with good food, good spirits, family, kids, and friends.

oṁ bhūr bhuvaḥ svaḥ, tat savitur vareṇyaṁ
bhargo devasya dhīmahi, dhiyo yo naḥ praćodayāt.

Earth, Space, Heavens. We meditate on the divine light of the radiant source. May that inspire our hearts and thoughts.  –The Gāyatrī Mantra Translation: Manorama

Residential Ashram Intensive

November 6th, 2021 – February 26th, 2022

@ Triopetra, Crete

Jivamukti Ashram Crete
Now is the time and space for practice. Take your home office and family with you or just get a break of your daily life. Spend your days in good and inspiring company surrounded by beautiful nature. Accompanied by healthy food, music and silence. Stay two weeks or just take a longer sabbatical up to 4 months.



Open to All – no prior experience required

Everyone is welcome at our little hideaway on Crete: From experienced yoga practitioners to spiritual seekers who have little or no yoga background. The Crete Ashram gives you the chance to live, work and practice in a yoga community with senior & advanced certified Jivamukti Yoga teachers.


Stay 2 weeks till 4 months

We expect great teachers and inspiring people to come together at this peaceful place to share the knowledge. You can stay min. two weeks or even four months to deepen your experience. Around the end of every second week, there will be a change of teachers & classes.






Everyone has something to offer the community


✧  Minimum stay of 2 weeks

✧  Doing some form of seva depending on the needs (cleanliness, kitchen, bodywork, treatments, teaching)

✧  Morning yoga classes by experienced Jivamukti teachers (e.g. meditation, lecture and practice)

✧ Afternoon sessions by newer teacher participants to establish themselves and gain some experience for their own teaching.

Pavlos Place Crete

The first Jivamukti Ashram Residency program

We are excited to offer a chance to make that special journey to study with some of the most experienced Jivamukti teachers in depth, and spend time with like-minded yoginis and yogis.

The world and its demand on how, where and why we work has changed and for some the opportunity opened up to actually work where and when we want. It is a good moment to remember the ancient teachings, which suggest we should exclusively dedicate some time in our life to actually practice. Not learning or practicing for any future event, but diving deeper into one’s true experience of yoga, asana, meditation, philosophy, devotion and satsang.
