If we do have to cancel the trip because of Covid, we will be delighted to offer another alternative. You will not miss out on the opportunity to visit this amazing venue.
How will it improve your health and wellbeing?
A retreat is a perfect opportunity to escape the demands of modern life and take some time out to breathe, relax and recharge. If like many clients you believe that meditation is difficult, and you have too many busy thoughts and clearing your mind is not something you can do easily, then space, time and gentle exercise will give you the opportunity. Pilates has risen in popularity because it is the stepping stone to a calmer life without the pressure of complete silence it is the gateway. Pilates, like yoga, uses your body as a relaxation tool.
Meditation is not about sitting in silence and clearing your mind. That comes after practise, but what does come is a wonderful sense of calm and wellbeing. A sense of well being from being in a quiet space with time to think.
How will you feel after the retreat?
You will love the opportunity that you have had to detox from life’s busyness. You will return home feeling relaxed and healthy after the amazing Greek homemade food. Feeling a sense of deep calm from the restorative Pilates practice so that you can return to life, with renewed vigour and energy.
