Join us for a transforming and rejuvenating journey in Crete – the island of Well Being. Mara & Ildiko will guide you to self restoration through learning body and nature awareness. With scented practices of being in the present moment you will experience the joy when feeling your whole self.

This workshop is exclusively for women who are willing to re-connect to their inner body/mind, to their center and transform their lives. Release muscular tension, develop freer movement, discover new options and understandings.

You will have the opportunity to receive and take with you the gifts of Aromatic Kinesiology, Embodied Anatomy, Thai Massage, essential oils, creative coaching, women’s circle, pure nature, Cretan cuisine and herbs – ALL genuinely supported by the nourishing energies of the island.
