A Jivamukti Yoga Retreat with Clare Nicholls and Linnea Ahlgren


Take the time to join Clare Nicholls and Linnea Ahlgren on this Jivamukti yoga retreat where we will explore central themes from the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali form one of the foundational texts of Yoga philosophy. They are a treatise which shines light into the way the mind works. They give practical suggestions for how to quite the whirling of the mind and reveal the possibilities available to us when the mind becomes still.


Clare is student of Dr M.A Jayashree and Professor Narasimhan of the Anantha Research Foundation Mysore, India. She has learned to chant the Yoga Sutras through the traditional method of shruti paramapara from these living masters and are excited to share the teaching in this beautiful setting.


Linnea holds an Advanced Certification in the Jivamukti Yoga method and joined recently our team of teachers.




To come together as a group to retreat and to share and deepen our Yoga practice is fun and transformative. The combination of these two experienced teachers, the breath taking scenery of Triopetra and the love and kindness of Pavlo’s staff makes this experience magical and unique. Clare and Linnea will support you in taking your asana practice to the next level, in feeling more at ease in your meditation and pranayama practice and in deepening your knowledge of yogic philosophy. Apart from the time spent on the mat, there will be room to enjoy the beach, for hikes and exploring the beautiful island of Crete.

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 Triopetra Beach. It is a modest Guesthouse with a family atmosphere and very comfortable rooms.

It consists of 18 rooms (with two or three beds), each one with its own bathroom, shower, mosquito nets, small fridge, air conditioning and screen doors.

All the rooms have a balcony with a view over the Libyan sea.

There´s consciousily no television or internet connection in the rooms, but you find a few books in a small library which will provide you with “good food for the brain” [Symbol]. For those who want to communicate with their people, free Wi-Fi is provided all over the place around the terraces.

Linnea was born in Sweden, but has called many places in the world home.

Lately, she finds it mostly on the yoga mat and in the intimacy with her own breath. She left a promising career in international relations in order to find other, more direct, ways to be of service. She holds an Advanced Certification in the Jivamukti Yoga method, and aims in her classes to facilitate an experience of awakening to our own lives, to who we are to each other, and to how we step on this earth, moment to moment.


She is beyond grateful to all her teachers, known as unknown, on the mat and off, two-legged, four-legged, no-legged, and to the students who, for some reason, keep seeing the best in her. She also loves pancakes, neuroscience and fantasy fiction, and dreams of opening an animal shelter.
