Listening to My Body—Psychosomatic Wellness Retreat
In this wellness retreat Ioannis and Ioanna Dovros bring together Pilates and a number of psychosomatic processes combined with a vision to support those wishing to develop themselves in a holistic manner. Ioannis and Ioanna will facilitate each person uniquely to find their own path of motion and balance.
We find psychosomatic problems to be:
Either physical dysfunctions, chronic or periodical, having a clinical background but fired after or during mental stress
Or emotional disorders, that are installed after a chronic undiagnosed or maltreated physical condition.
We think of psychosomatic symptoms as messages that our body and soul sends us in a sign language we don’t yet understand. We handle psychosomatic personality as a troubled yet gifted being with a story to tell. We deal with psychosomatic problems by a short in time and long in impact therapeutic approach.
This Listening to My Body psychosomatic wellness retreat is a seven days combination of Pilates stretching group program and a series of solution oriented group processes for the healing of psychosomatic problems, embodied in the community involvement inspiring environment of Kalikalos at Kissos. It involves morning group sessions from 9:30 to 13:30 that include:
