Jai Jai Jai…Jivamukti Kijai!


Experience 10 days at the magical south-coast of Crete, where we will live quiet and peacefully above the Libyan Sea. We will focus on daily Meditation, Asana, Kriya, pranayama and of course on Bhakti Yoga:
the Yoga of devotion and love.

The endless, wild beaches and the stunning nature of Crete are there to be explored and are calling for lazy hangouts. Experience Triopetra’s famous sunset with Kirtan on the rooftop terrace. Be ready for lots of music and chanting with Petros and Erhard. This is one of the highlights of our Retreats!

Daily class from 9:00–13.00h
Kirtan from 18-19.45h


There will be one day off, so you have time for larger excursions. This retreat will leave you rejuvenated, deeply relaxed, clear in your purpose and it will be radiating your inner strength and joy which is the greatest gift you can make yourself, your friends your family and this one world we all share.

Nowadays, there are still a few places on earth that insistently deny to follow the stream of the modern civilisation and remain oases for those who seek for something different.
Triopetra is one of those places where time seems to have stopped!


You get to experience the archaic landscape, pure nature, the almost everpresent sun, etesian winds, the chirping of the cicadas and the soft, swooshing sound of the ocean.


This place of refuge is located on the south coast of Crete. The best Season lies between April and October where the highest Temperatures are reached between June and September.


The beach is just a few steps away from the Kretashala “Pavlos’ Place” and the guests can enjoy miles of unspoiled and deserted beaches, with turquoise, crystal-clear water in which you can swim and snorkel.
One is surrounded by Nature in its purest form that invites you to explore the healing powers of it.


The area around Triopetra is free from bars or noisy night life, which means that tranquility and quietness are guaranteed!



Pavlos Place is located at the eastern part of Triopetra Beach. It is a modest Guesthouse with a family atmosphere and very comfortable rooms with own bathroom, shower, air conditioning and screen doors.


All rooms have a balcony with a view over the Libyan sea and the beach is a 2 minute walk away.


The yoga shala and terrace overlook the ocean and invite to watch the sunset.

The Teachers



PETROS, musician, yogi, life-artist is senior jivamukti yoga teacher and globally one of the most renown teachers & musicians on the yoga train.


Petro’s honest, funny and challenging teaching inspires to be fully aware in the present moment. So experience comes through intuition and not from a place of personal preference or dislikes. Returning to that place, where, independently from outer circumstance there always is peace: the pure light of the heart.


There are many obstacles, yoga gives us the possibility to free ourselves from. So our true nature remains no longer hidden. We really are free, wild, full of love and joy – without conditioning, without fear. He has great gratitude for all teachers, known and unknown, he had the honor to study with and is grateful to all circumstance that gives the chance to experience this feeling of unity, of non-separateness. To learn to accept the greatest of all teachers: life & nature.





Erhard loves the sound of music and silence and this is what he shares best.


As an experienced Tabla and dulcimer player he has co-hosted the Bhakti Jam Retreat for 15 years and his music is a true gift for all participants. Him playing live music during asana classes and Kirtan with Petros for sunset session is one portion of what makes this retreat so special. Erhard will also share is own practice and guide us through meditation every morning.


Erhard’s calm but humours kind is a great enrichment to the program and he is very happy and grateful to offer what’s close to his heart.
