8 Days 7 Nights!  July 28-August 4,2022

Renew and Replenish yourself in beautiful Greece!

Beautiful turquoise seas and magnificent grounding mountains are the backdrop for this summer's 8-day retreat!

This retreat was curated with the intent to offer our guests the most relaxing and restoring retreat while also being offered in one of the most beautiful countries in the world.

Morning meditations and yoga classes offered by the mountain and in the evening sunset, calming yoga practices by the sea offer our guests a wonderful balance of both yin and yang energies.

Leave this retreat feeling refreshed, renewed and reconnected to your most highest self.

Location & Accommodations:

There is no place like Leonidion!
One of our former retreat guests coined this area as a "Hidden Gem" and we could not agree more. It is simply a breathtaking place.

Leonidion is located in a valley within the Peloponnese, roughly around a 3 hour drive from Athens. It is considered mainland Greece and therefore no need to travel by water.
Turquoise seas and breathtaking mountains.
Charming town filled with kind locals and uniquely-made products.
Luxurious hotel suited to meet all your lodging (and safety) needs.
One-of-a-kind overall experience!

Hotel Hatzipanayiotis:

Hatzipanayiotis’ Mansion was renovated by craftsmen with affection, enthusiasm and respect. Standing as a fortress in the centre of Leonidio, it is surrounded by high stone walls which enclose its authenticity inside. From the entrance, a magnificent wooden door with a stone dome, we can see the strictly rectangular shape of the mansion and the traditional wooden roof, which was reconstructed with Byzantine-style tiles. The pebble-paved yard is equally impressive with a garden full of beautiful flowers such as gerania, honeysuckles, pansies, jasmines and frangipanis.

The ground floor and the first floor have independent entrances but they communicate externally with a stone staircase which is based on domes and arches of great magnificence. The beautiful “chagiatia” (balconies), the elaborate chimneys, the lintels of the windows with the stone arcs and the stone-built arches are unique characteristics of the impressive local architecture.

The hotel offers Wellness services at an additional cost:

Revive your senses and indulge in a wellness ritual that will make you get rid of the stress and anxiety of everyday life. Pamper yourself with a hammam or a sauna session, feel completely relaxed with a massage and surrender in a rejuvenating body and face therapy by the hands of our experts.

What is Reiki?
​Reiki is a complementary therapy, commonly referred to as energy healing or healing through touch.  Reiki derives from the Japanese words: ‘rei’ meaning universal and ‘ki’ which means life energy. When you put these two together, you get: universal life force energy.
​Founded by Mikao Usui, Usui Reiki emerged from Japan in the late 19th century and it involves the transferring of universal energy from one being to another.  Reiki is instinctive and innate within each of us. It is a simple and natural yet powerful healing modality that anyone, at any age has the ability to practice or receive.
How does it work?
Reiki is best in a setting that is peaceful and quiet, although it can be given anywhere at any time. The receiver of reiki can be seated or lying down comfortably, or even at a distance.
The practitioner, then, places their hands lightly over the recipient and the energy transfer; unblocking & harmony within begin. Reiki allows space for clearing, centering, and balancing, guiding the body to a restorative state.
What are the benefits of Reiki?
Some benefits of Reiki:
  • Reduces stress
  • Reduces anxiety
  • Reduces depression
  • Reduces fatigue
  • Reduces pain
  • Improves memory & behaviour
  • Stimulates healing & growth.
SIDE EFFECTS: there are no side effects.
Reiki is: Energy. Light. Healing. Love
