Overview:
For us accessibility is not an additional extra, it is a neccessity. Accessible retreat venues and retreat activities not only offer people with disabilities a chance to relax and recharge when most needed, it is also a way for people to experience holistic physical, mental and social rejuvenation.
Limited mobility:
People with limited mobility are offered the chance to use the Junior Suite which has all rooms and room facilities on one level space, and a totally accessible bathroom with shower and toilet holder. The activities and program can be modified to suit their needs, for example seated ZhiNenng QiGong and pilates etc.)
Wheelchair:
The venue is wheelchair accessible, with the Junior Suite offering all room facilities on one level space, with a totally accessible bathroom with shower and toilet holder, ramps and wide entrances. The retreat program and sessions will be altered and modified for people with physical disabilities (e.g. on-wheelchair pilates, sitting mindful sessions etc.)

Responsible tourism: Pilates and meditation retreat in Pelion Greece

Environment

The hotels used as our retreats venues are built with local Pelion mountain stone and follow the historically preserved Pelion architecture.
Products used in brunches and dinners come from local organic cultivations. Small level agro-producers who avoid pesticides and stick to organic frowing are preferred as our suppliers.

Oils and ointments used in physical holistic therapies are organic. Paper and glass waste is recycled accordingly. Use of plastic is avoided (ex. clay cups are preferred for tea serving, refillable bottles are used for walking tours), and if used, plastic waste is recycled.

The traditional hotels and other venues that host our retreats follow eco-friendly procedures concerning water usage and waste management. Participants of our holistic retreats are accordingly advised to reduce water usage, in an attempt to encourage the holistic view physically, mentally and in an eco-prospect alike. Participants of our retreats are also advised to make their best effort to preserve the vivid natural beauty of the Pelion forests, just as we and our associates do: keep clear the routes and passages that they will use in their individual trekking or group-organised walking tours, avoid any fire burning and keep waste of the beach.

Community

We are run as a social cooperative company that is bound to employ local people who belong to socially vulnerable groups (such as unemployed mothers). The venue of the retreat is suitable for people with motor disabilty as we values accessibility as a major principle.

One of the ongoing projects is the free-of-charge psycho-social support and empowerment of a local association of people with physical disability.

Tea offered comes either from fair trade corporations or from hand-by-hand selection from the local Pelion mountain. Participants of the retreats that we organize are accordingly advised to prefer locally gathered herbs for teas and beverages and to purchase the beautifully hand made crafts of the Pelion markets in order to reinforce local economy.

Open lectures about health or psychology issues are offered for free to the local community two or three times a year. Participants of our retreats and groups are adviced to respect and preserve the local culture and are offered with written information about the history and traditions of the place. They are encouraged to take part in the local music or dancing fests whenever possible, thus embracing the true feeling of the local culture.
