Journey with us on this Ultimate Health Fest to redefine your health and embark on a personal full mind & body transformation!
Vinyasa Yoga: Vinyasa strengthens our communicative power of our mind and body to create a deeper conscious awareness that allows us to test and discover intrinsic boundaries while being physically challenged.
Capoeira Flow: Capoeira has the grace of a dance and the fire of a martial art. Originating by Africans in Brazil, Capoeira includes impressive kicks, elegant movements and acrobatics for all levels, while developing an individual's flexibility, strength, coordination and accuracy. Always performed to music, Capoeira will teach you how to synchronise with your opponent to form fascinating combinations while maintaining the flow of the movement.
Balanced Eating Workshops: Using theory and practice, understand how to eat a healthy, balanced diet. Discover the importance of proper nutrition to achieving increased energy levels and a healthy, strong and nourished body. Forget about any nutrition myths or fad diets that don't work. This interactive class will give you the chance to have all your questions answered.
Yin Yoga: Yin yoga was developed to penetrate deep into connective tissue expanding flexibility while invigorating the energy centres of the body to release blockages and increase energy flow. It focuses on static movement, breath work (Pranayama) and meditation to create a profoundly deep and rewarding practice.
HiiT the Water (Aqua Aerobics): Discover how HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) in the water builds up your stamina, tones up your body and activates your metabolism to burn body fat in the most enjoyable and fresh session. Witness how the water, apart from relaxing and calming, can be your best fitness partner – all this while boosting your vitamin D levels thanks to the Greek sunshine.
Mindfulness Workshops: Mindfulness is the quality or state of being conscious or aware of something. It is widely known as a therapeutic technique for managing stress, improving mood and concentration and enhancing our energy levels. In this session you will learn how to practice mindfulness and you will discover how you can apply it into your everyday routine.
Rehabilitation and Sports Massage: Here the Message Therapist will assess and treat muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues. This significantly improves postures, range of movement and circulation facilitating in realigning the body.
Mandala Art Workshops: Mandalas have been used for centuries as a tool for prayer, meditation and healing. Here we have a chance to use these tools to relax, free our minds and discover a pathway to inside healing and self-expression. During the workshop you will be able to choose your own blank Mandala to colour, use this as a starting point to discover more about what colours and feelings speak to you, and get guidance to what this all means.

"A beautiful location and excellent organizers ensured a friendly and happy atmosphere. Activities were innovative and interesting and the food was fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the retreat and would consider coming again. I learned a lot of new yoga poses, a lot about nutrition and some new Capoeira moves. I made far more friends than expected and each of the organizers was able to make the overall experience far better than I could have imagined." - Chris from UK, 2019
"Health and happiness in paradise on earth! Everything was excellent, from instructors to location to food! Highly recommended." - Jessica from Belgium, 2018
"Everything was perfect! The vibe, the activities and workshops, the view, the people.... I could go on forever.. Konstantinos and the two Ninas were just the loveliest people ever and always took that extra effort to make us feel comfortable. Very quickly they became friends and they even took us on trips around the islands. I spent such a great time there & loved the fact that it was easy to meet new people even though I went by myself. The food was the best I've ever eaten, in the workshops I learned so much about nutrition, happiness and stress reduction techniques & the classes were simply amazing too! I can sincerely recommend this retreat to everyone who wants to spend some quality life time and is open to significant life changes!" - Daniela from Switzerland, 2018
"The Ultimate Health Fest was truly an incredible experience. Konstantinos, Nina, and Nina(ki) were extremely knowledgeable and experienced teachers that brought great energy to every activity that we did. The combination of Yoga, HIIT and Capoeira made for a unique challenging experience that I really enjoyed. The retreat brought together a diverse group of people from throughout the world, who I plan to remain lifelong friends with. I look forward to the next retreat offering from the Ultimate Health Fest!" - Chris from USA, 2018
