Daughters of the Earth
Wellness Retreat (7 nights)
with Ami and Vicky
June 7th to 14th, 2023
We invite you to join us for this wholesome, enlivening and connected gathering. An immersive and organic yoga and wellbeing experience.
Listen to your body. Nourish your mind.
Awaken your senses.
Remember who you truly are!
A perfect corner of Greece. This Wellness Retreat will be hosted in the mythical region of Pelion. This paradise is tucked away in the Pagasitikos Gulf in eastern Greece. It is situated on the western side of the Mount Pelion and around the village of Agios Georgios Nilias. The whole area is very lush and green, relatively untouched and characterised by sweeping mountain vistas, forests, enchanting villages and hideaway beaches.
The Pelion Peninsula is steeped in mythology. Mount Pelion took its name from the mythical king Peleus, father of Achilles, and the forested hills were the homeland of Centaurs, the mythical creatures half-men and half-horse. Pelion is dotted with monasteries and some still thriving.
This is land where the Gods, Demi-Gods and Mystics have taken pleasure and respite!
Perfect for Retreating.
Residence - Pelion Homes
We will be staying at Pelion Homes. An idyllic retreat location led by a dedicated team to support our experience. They have created a sanctuary that offers an abundance of opportunity to gain new perspectives, new impressions, appreciate a different rhythm of time and find greater balance in life.
This mountainous land and its natural beauty is the perfect antidote to the demands of modern living and fast paced lives. The space, the surroundings and the nourishing practices invite meaningful connection with nature and oneself.
Guided Breathing and Deep Relaxation
Creative and Expressive Arts
Healing Rituals and Ceremonies
We will also give time to discuss the teachings and practices in more depth - drawing from ancient wisdom as well as more modern wellness concepts.
For those retreaters looking to take their retreat to a deeper level, talking therapy is available in 1-2-1 meetings. Exercising the body can help focus the mind and soften the body of its defences. This can allow for greater awareness and new insights. 1-2-1 meetings are designed to support this and are optional.
No experience is required for any of these practices and EVERYTHING IS OPTIONAL.
Come as you are with an open heart and mind!
A typical day will include a morning and evening practice and free time in the afternoon.
