Week of Inspiration
During the NATURE, BODY & SOUL week of inspiration at an unique location on the beautiful Greek island of Samos you’ll experience how mindfulness, yoga and qi gong can totally change your way of living.
By giving this week full attention to your body and mind, you can add more relaxation in your body, feel mentally connected to your inner self and make choices for a life that completely suits you.
On a beautiful spot overlooking the Aegean Sea there is next to the substantive part of the stay plenty of time to enjoy nature, beach and sea.
Experience of participants:
“Thanks for the nice week with many (new) insights”
“Thanks for your intense interference and the starters for change”
“It gave me inner peace on one side and on the other hand new energy”
“For me it was all inspiring and very well matched”
“I got the insight that I have to go my own way”
Program (subject to change)
During this Week of Inspiration we start every morning (except the free- and departure- day) with hatha yoga, breathing exercises and meditation.
Every night we bring Qi Gong in practice. Qi Gong can heal your mind and body. We learn this week Shibashi: a form consisting of 18 movements. Through the slow, relaxed and conscious movements you gain the ability to internal harmony and balance. Your body is soft and thoroughly practiced, your emotions are calmed down and your mind is brought back in a peaceful state of wholeness.
During the two Mindfulness workshops you will learn to shift attention to the ‘here and now’ and leave other things to what they are. This way you can achieve some form of relaxation or discharge; in the head and in the rest of your body. And one day we will go for a mindful walk through the beautiful Nightingale Valley.
In addition, we visit the excavation of the Temple of Hera in Ireon. This will be under the guidance of Hillie Kuipers, the author of the book “Kélenóh, the last high priestess of Samos”.
The following optional activities are possible:
- personal coaching session
- Reiki treatment
- extra hike
- workshop “Glass fusing in the hotpot”
- yin yoga
During this week we stay in Armonia Bay Hotel, located on the green north coast of Samos. If you enjoy relaxation in a stylish environment, this is the place to be!
From its lofty position above Tsamadou Beach, famed for its crystal-clear waters, Armonia Bay Hotel looks out across the bay towards Kokkari, a picturesque fishing village.
The building, pool and terraces are architecturally well designed and fit harmoniously in their beautiful surroundings.
Armonia Bay Hotel is not only privileged with such a wonderful beachside location and breathtaking views, but it is also small, friendly and welcoming to its guests.
Armonia Bay Hotel features 24 rooms all with a balcony or a lawn garden. Each of the rooms has been carefully designed and tastefully furnished to the last detail. The rooms look towards the sea or the hotel’s garden.
Please take a look on the website of Armonia Bay Hotel to get an impression of this beautiful place.
