We hold during the retreat workshops; detox protocols, yoga and yoga philosophy, nutrition education with raw food demos of a talented raw food chef, courses in breathing techniques and relaxation, manifestation, Law of Attraction, psycho-emotional reprogramming and goal setting.
Why should I detox?
In our modern society, we get an overload of toxins and loads of time doing damage to the body. Western living proves to be among the world's top ranking when it comes to introducing harmful chemicals to the body. This then leads to a variety of health problems and the breakdown of a fit and healthy body we know and love. When you give your body a break from the stresses and fill up with vital, clean food and drinks that are carefully selected due to their high nutritional content, this gives your body a boost and the opportunity to come back to balance again. Have you had a period with a lot of bad habits, stress, imbalance in your diet and know that now is the time to take better care of yourself? This is the trip for you. This is the retreat where you get more energy, vitality and feel rejuvenated and renewed. This journey is for those who need a new clean start and a new outlook. Benefits of a gentle detox are multifold. Many participants experience weight loss, less pain in the body - especially in the stomach and in the muscles and joints, better health, more energy, clearer skin, a push in the right direction mentally and a generally improved sense of self. Go on vacation and come back as a better version of you - lighter, brighter and happier.
The at this retreat are based on pure plant foods, raw food principles and superfoods. All the food is gluten-free and plant based, no animal products, therefore no lactose either. Our nutrition is free from soy, corn, gluten, dairy products, peanuts, sugar, meat, eggs and other processed foods. We have our own raw food chef with us serving us homemade delicacies. There are also arranged demos from the food being served, so you will gain insight into how to make food like this yourself.
3 of the days shall be pure, green juice fasting. It takes three days of fasting for the immune system to experience a boost and a restart. You will feel it in both your body and mind how one such diet profoundly affects how you function.
The journey in brief
You will be picked up when you land at the airport in Athens and together we take a beautiful boat ride out to Mykonos. During our stay, we were staying at the beautiful villa Melmastia overlooking the Aegean Sea. The first day we start the diet consisting of freshly squeezed juices, smoothies, fresh salads, delicious vegetables and other fresh food as well as some amazing molecular gastronomy getting lighter as the week progresses. We then treat our bodies to a 3 day juice feast and fast of cold-pressed juices, before beginning to introduce wonderful food back into the program.
We also begin moving the body from the first morning. Whether you are a beginner or experienced in yoga, the classes are tailored to your level. There are also other movement workshops designed to move you out of your mind and into your body. You will also get a careful review of nutrition and detox, living clean and mindfulness. We will go through good tips and tricks that you can also use when you return home to carry this new health with you into your life. We are also going through an amazing seminar-workshop about how manifestation works in detail and creating the life you really want to live, including psycho-emotional reprogramming and removing old limiting beliefs as well as mapping out exactly what you do and don’t want in life and creating the habits to get us there. You then return home renewed both inside and outside after this boutique immersion! You may freely forward to join in as much of the program as you wish. It also set up the time to rest, time alone and treatments.
