About the event

Feeling stress, unfocussed or off track?

I guarantee to get you refocussed and realigned with just one week on the magical island of Crete!

  • Rest and restore on our private beach
  • Improve your practice with two 75 minute yoga classes a day
  • Connect with likeminded people through workshops and group activities
  • Discover what you truly want from life and how to get it with our transformation workshops
  • Explore the historical paradise that is Crete on our group tour
  • Feast on three delicious and nutritious meals a day catering for all diets

In need of a break but still want it to feel productive? Want to travel but not alone? In need of a change and some new inspiration? If you answered ‘Yes’ to any of these questions then The Crete Retreat is for you!

The retreat will put together everything that is great about Yoga Evolved events! We always attract an amazing group of people, drawn to the fun, original approach to yoga and the strong social element. This retreat will be all this but more! With added sun, sand, sea, plus potentially life changing workshops!

The Venue:

We have rented a beautiful purpose built retreat centre in a traditional part of Crete. The venue has a private beach, sauna and fully equipped yoga shala, complete with views of the Mediterranean Sea. Here are just a few of many fantastic verified reviews:

‘An indescribably beautiful place!’

‘It’s absolutely beautiful !! It’s so lush; vegetable gardens and of course the Olive Trees everywhere, providing shade and a glimpse of what Crete is famous for.’

‘I can't say enough good things about my experience. The house is beautiful and cozy but the nature that surrounded blew me away’

‘I came with my friends and I have to tell you that this private beach house was beyond our expectations. It is really wonderful and unique to have a vacation on crystal clear water with no one around!!!’

Three meals a day are provided by our resident chef who has experience in providing many different cuisines having worked in Australia, India, Israel and Greece, plus running a vegan restaurant. We will therefore make the most of her experience by providing a varied menu of nutritious meals made with locally sourced food. The menu not only includes three meals a day, but also morning and bedtime snacks!

The island of Crete has everything!  Amazing nature from mountains to beautiful unspoilt beaches, and a rich history dating back before 3000 BCE.  Add ftheb islands unique culture, fanatastic food and perfect weather and you'll understand why many Greeks regard Crete as the best place in Greece!

‘This all sounds amazing but it must be expensive’

I always give myself the challenge of trying to provide more and with better quality than rival retreats, but at a cheaper price! I always want to make my events accessible and the sort off thing I would pay for myself. I also want to make sure everyone I work with is well paid, so its a difficult balance to strike! After spending hours scouring the internet for similar retreats and working out the average room prices, I have managed to create prices that are over £300 cheaper for every room type!

NOTE: When I say similar I mean in terms of venue and length, none of the retreats offer as much as this one!

We have different prices for different requirements and staggered payments are available.

‘The workshops sound great, but I really just want to do yoga and relax’

Everything offered on the retreat is entirely optional. We understand that some attendees may like to skip some classes and workshops and spend time in the sun or exploring the island. We encourage you to make this your retreat.

‘I want to come but I don’t have anyone to come with me’

Most people who attend retreats arrive alone but leave with new friends for life! We have designed the retreat to encourage social interaction through workshops and group activities. You will have free time everyday to hang out with the other attendees, plus we have optional group trips to some beautiful places on the island.

Although we are providing all the tools for an amazing week of transformation, we also want it to be fun! Therefore, we have included things that you wouldn’t usually get on the average yoga retreat, including a closing party!

I have Whatsapp groups still running from previous events, and its great to see former attendees still meeting up in different parts of the world! And even better when they come to visit me in London!

‘Whose running this thing?!’

That would be me!  Jamie Rylett.  Here's my yoga profile:

In a time when we see many ex dancers and gymnasts making the jump to teaching yoga, Jamie Rylett’s background couldn’t be more different.  Jamie discovered yoga when he was a stressed-out sales exec, who was much more likely to be found spending his free time on a Midlands nightclub door than meditating in an Indian Ashram!  That all changed in 2014 when a frequently occurring co-incidence eventually lead to him discovering Bikram Yoga.  He quickly became aware of yoga’s ability to correct physical imbalances, reduce pain and restore range of motion, not to mention the mental clarity and calmness it provides.

Inspired to explore the art further, Jamie headed to India to complete his 200 TTC.  This began the cycle of continuous development, a process that continues today. Numerous trainings with teachers including Bernie Clark, Adam Husler and Jill Miller followed, plus Jamie completed Jason Crandell's 300-hour advanced training (twice!).

Jamie specialises in Vinyasa Flow and Yin.  His classes are educational, playful, functional and adaptable to the individual student’s needs.  As a former DJ, you can always guarantee that Jamie has spent far too long preparing the accompanying playlist!

Having benefited so much from yoga himself, Jamie now tries to share the practice with as many people as possible through his fun and friendly Yoga Evolved Festivals, original workshops and international yoga retreats.

‘Jamie sounds great!  But how can I find out about previous Yoga Evolved attendees experiences?’

I have previously ran three sold out retreats, two in Mexico and one in India. Everybody has had an amazing time and I couldn’t have asked for better groups! Yoga Evolved retreats are rated 5 star on Book Yoga Retreats. I also recorded a few videos testimonials that you can watch on my Instagram:

Here are just a few of the comments:

‘I enjoyed the different workshops, the friendly people I met, and the skilled personable yoga instructors Shea and Jamie. It was therapeutic and a lot of fun!’ Mary Ann (Canada)

‘The community that was built this week was something that was just incredible to witness. We’re almost like family now!’ Stacie (America)

‘I hadn’t done yoga for 15 years and still I felt that it was good to be here and that I wasn’t not able to keep up with the classes. Ines (Portugal)

‘Everything was amazing! Perfect really, well balanced and really great teachers. It’s just been a wonderful week’. Candice (Canada)

‘It really gave me the opportunity to know myself’ Shukla (Bangladesh)

“I thought about lots of personal and career goals that I want to focus on and it was very useful to have this time to focus on things that were important to me’ Laura (England)

Five people rebooked for my last retreat in Mexico! So I must be doing something right!

‘I’m convinced! How much are the rooms?’

I’ve tried to create rooms for all requirements and kept the majority under £1000! All rooms include all meals and snacks, classes, workshops and tours. There is even a shuttle to the venue included should you wish to take it.

This retreat is already offers unmatchable value. The value could be even higher as this could very well be a life changing experience! And if you decide to pay in full at the time of booking then you can save an additional £50!  That will definitely get you some olive oil, ouzo and loukoumi (my favourite!).


The Crete Retreat is the experience you can’t afford to miss! The chance to relax, restore, realign and re-engage. You will leave Greece as a different person from when you arrived, a person ready to make changes and embrace new challenges in order to connect to your authentic self. This is an unmissable experience at an unmissable price, so invest in yourself and take the action you deserve today!

If you have any any questions please feel free to send me a message.

Hope to connect with you soon!
