You can be in Greece …


Join Lauren & Travis, two of LA’s most accomplished and influential yoga teachers, on a transforming adventure to Greece to explore the magical island of Crete! Crete is home to history, culture, and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Hosted at the 5-Star Atlantica Kalliston Resort & Spa with rooms also available at the adjacent Ammos hotel – our retreat journey will focus on manifesting personal health & happiness through the practice & philosophy of holistic yoga. Enjoy seven days/six nights in this magical beach escape surrounded by breathtaking vistas, and immerse yourself in a gracious community of like-minded Bliss-Seekers. Carry what you learn on this extraordinary retreat and transform your life! Live your best life!

While on this retreat, Lauren & Travis will teach their personally-developed style of yoga, Holistic Yoga Flow: The Path of Practice. Classes will be an in-depth journey through the philosophy and practice of yoga and include guidance on how to implement this into your daily life.

After morning yoga, explore Crete with our local guides, go to the beautiful pink sand beach of Elafonisi, hike to Samaria Gorge, get lost in Chania Town, find tranquility lounging at the pool, seek serenity with a massage, or immerse yourself in Crete’s culture on your own!

Blissed’s retreat with Lauren and Travis was magical, especially with experience officer April. From the yoga to excursions, every promise and expectation was realized. Would go again in a heartbeat.

I thoroughly enjoyed my first Yoga retreat with Blissed Yoga Retreats. Everything was handled both professionally and personally. It was a terrific experience. My Yoga instructors, Travis Eliot and Lauren Eckstrom are not only fabulous Yoga instructors, but an incredible Team that made this retreat (with their style, knowledge and generosity) an amazing life experience. The combination of Blissed Yoga Retreats, Travis and Lauren, this retreat/vacation was a trip filled with warm memories. I highly recommend Blissed Yoga Retreats as the “go-to” for any of your Yoga retreats.

Producer’s Love Letter

Dear Guest,

We can’t wait to welcome you to the beautiful island of Crete! This is our annual Holistic Yoga Flow retreat with acclaimed teachers Lauren Eckstrom and Travis Eliot. These retreats sell out quickly because they are, well, awesome. My name is Erika and I am your retreat producer making all the details come together and yoga retreat magic happen. Every detail is hand-crafted with care. 

Our promise  to you is that this will be the best yoga retreat (and possibly travel experience) you will ever go on. How do we do it? It’s about having:

  1. The best locations (hello Chania, Crete!)
  2. The best resorts (aka we are going to the TOP resort on Crete)
  3. Amazing food (Mediterranean food :)))
  4. The BEST customer service (we take this VERY seriously- April Shunn Williams will be on your retreat making everything go smoothly)
  5. Bucket list guided excursions (Samaria Gorge, amazing Crete beaches, Chania Town exploring – such a cool historic town)
  6. THE VERY BEST YOGA TEACHERS!!!! I mean Lauren and Travis – need I say more?

Planning retreats is a passion project for us. It’s so much more than a vacation – it’s a life hack. Retreats help you clarify your goals, get in touch with your spiritual and physical body, and connect you with a community of like-minded individuals (aka your yoga family). We hope you make the space in your life to retreat with us! We welcome returning guests and new friends. All levels welcome – even if you are new to yoga this is for you!

Please contact me with any questions. We want to make your entire experience as blissful as possible – from the logistics to the yoga. Come retreat with us, we will change the way your travel forever.

With bliss,


Erika Craciun, Founder/CEO Blissed Yoga Retreats, 424-625-9938 (call/text anytime!)

Solo Traveler?

Coming alone? Great! We can work to find you a roommate* if you want a shared room. About half of our travelers come alone – it’s a great way to travel. Check out our blog post on why traveling alone is a great option!

No refunds will be given for “no shows” or days not used resulting from the above aforementioned. Blissed Yoga Retreats requires guests to purchase trip insurance for international retreats.
