Tai Chi & Yoga retreat in Pelion | June 2024
'TAI CHI & YOGA RETREAT IN PELION, GREECE'
12.06.24 - 19.06.24
Hosted by Andy & Denise Spragg.
'7 night TAI CHI & YOGA retreat in PELION, Greece!
The stresses and strains of our life aren’t easy. We need to learn to make time for ourselves, time for our minds to settle, work on our spirituality and sort out the things that are important to us.
We have provided this opportunity, for you to find this peace and tranquillity – to reconnect with the world around you and to find a way to deepen that connection. Through the ancient disciplines of Tai Chi, Yoga and meditation we will teach you how to rediscover and develop your connection
with the earth, with nature and with the people you come into contact with in your life.
Our purpose here is to help you grow, spiritually and emotionally as a person. This re- quires effort. You will see from the programme that this retreat is intensive. But although we encourage you to take part in all aspects of the programme, we also know that you will inevitably get tired and need to rest. The Buddhist concept of Right Effort applies here. Finding the right balance of effort to make progress but at the same time noticing how you are feeling and resting when you need to.
The programme for the week is designed to build on the experience and practise of Mind- fulness, day by day.

Pelion is an absolute natural paradise! It is a huge mountain dotted with picturesque traditional villages and fringed by mesmerizing beaches!
The gems of Pelion are hands down its quaint villages! They are made up of traditional little houses with grey stone roofs and paved alleys that ooze charm in abundance!
On the eastern side of the Pelion peninsula in Greece, there are some exotic beaches with mesmerizing co- balt waters. Mylopotamos, Fakistra and Agios Ioannis are some of the most popular Pelion beaches you have to visit!
For those of a non-beachy disposition, Pelion has a lot to offer in terms of natural beauty. A variety of natural landscapes. Getting there is easy—fly to Volos on the Greek Mainland and we will help with transfer to the retreat centre
