About This Event

On Sunday, October 18th, and for many following Sundays to come, in different special locations around Greece’s biggest cities, Travelgems presents “BREATHE” Pop up Retreats, a uniquely designed concept that will join like-minded individuals towards a common purpose of well-being. Well-being includes the concept of physical, mental, social and emotional health. Travelgems’ main purpose is to create experiences nurturing body and soul that not only lift you up but move you forward. All experiences are organized around three basic pillars: education, evolution and integration. Thus, following this direction and encompassing these pillars, the Pop up Retreats will include a four hour, one day event of sessions by wellness experts covering varying topics, creating memories full of care, and initiating connections and inspiration. The sessions will organize groups of 8 people concurrently, taking care of every participant’s safety.

This one day, four hour retreat is dedicated to self-care practices that boost our mental health – the way we think, feel and behave in our daily lives. The sessions will be led by unique experts that will teach well-being practices, simultaneously sharing their energy and passion. Specifically, through four distinctive sessions we will:
- Feel revitalized, empower our bodies and reveal stress by joining Ioanna’s exclusive morning HIIT session (Fitness training)
- Find balance through a Pilates session, by nurturing our bodies and minds using our breath and exercises that improve our posture (Pilates Mat with resistance bands)
- Explore ways of somatic psychotherapy to identify how we connect our body, mind and soul, and live in the present moment (Uniting body-mind)
- Maintaining inner balance and resilience during challenging times (Positive mindset: How to) By participating in this retreat, you will learn how to physically and mentally take care of yourself, make yourself a priority, and reaffirm the way you approach yourself to achieve optimal personal and worldly health.

The best gift you can give yourself is Self-care.
