Full Description

This seven day pilates wellness retreat in Greece is a chance to recharge your batteries, recover and get back into balance. It’s a small group holiday, lead by Ioannis, who is a Greek wellness trainer and expert in pilates, acupuncture, massage therapy and reflexology. The holiday takes place in a beautifully designed stone house in the Pelion Peninsula, built by local craftspeople. The Pelion surrounds the Pagasetic Gulf and the retreat overlooks this beautiful waterscape.

This week long retreat includes pilates, tai chi and meridian stretching, with a gentle stretching programme each day on our terrace overlooking the sea. We adapt the programme to match each individual’s physical needs and are delighted to welcome beginners. We will also have regular QiGong sessions, which is a combination of martial, medical and spiritual healing, focussing on posture, breathing and mental focus to reawaken and strengthen the body. Again, beginners are welcome and QiGong suits all ages and physical abilities.

A feeling of serenity is the aim for each day, so we like to round off every day with some meditation, using singing bowls which produce a sonic and sensory vibration. Guests are welcome to develop a personal training and wellness plan for their stay, and we can offer additional therapies, including therapeutic massage and reflexology.

A maximum of 10 people stay on any retreat in our boutique guesthouse, where we provide nutritious vegetarian food. Pilates and stretching sessions take place on our terrace overlooking the sea and we also have an infinity pool. Rooms are shared, with fantastic views over the sea from all of them. The local village is a 10 minute walk away and has three tavernas. The nearest sandy beach is just two minutes’ walk away.

The price includes accommodation in a twin room (some ensuite), pool towels, morning tai chi and pilates, QiGong and meditation sessions, all meals with wine at dinner, except for one night in a local taverna which guests pay for. We can arrange group transfers from Thessaloniki airport, for €45 per person, each way.
