MAIA WELL CO.

Greek Islands, September 2024


A Pilates and Wellness Retreat in Greece

 

~ Sunday 22nd September – Thursday 26th September ~

Welcome to our Maia Well Co. retreat home in Kea, Greece.

It’s time to put your feet up and let us look after you, nourish you, move with you and invite you along to our beautiful welcoming retreat haven where you can truly switch off, relax, unwind and soak in the sunshine. 

It’s going to be absolutely magical and we cannot wait to welcome you!


The Retreat

Join us in September 2024 for a beautiful retreat in the Greek Islands to restore and nourish yourself from the inside out. With views of the ocean at every corner, we invite you to immerse yourselves and retreat with us in nature’s beauty, waking to the sound of waves, enjoying poolside lunches, exploring the island by boat and relaxing into the evening with pilates and views of golden sunset skies.

We’ve created a thoughtfully curated and well balanced schedule of daily outdoor pilates classes overlooking the ocean, holistic wellbeing treatments, wholesome nourishing food, relaxing beach days, swimming in the villa’s infinity pool, a boat trip around the island and plenty of relaxation time, all from the comfort of your very own private oceanfront recently renovated villa. 


The Practice

We will be offering a schedule of feel-good rejuvenating movement practices throughout your stay.

You can expect daily energising pilates classes led by Zoe-Maia to start your day, designed to sculpt, lengthen and energise. In the evenings, we’ll wind down with more pilates combining strength work with calming stretches, to relax the mind and promote restful sleep throughout the retreat.

The classes will take place on the outdoor seaview terrace or poolside under the pergola, weather dependent.

All practices are suitable for all levels and modifications will be provided.

 


Your Teacher

Zoe-Maia is the founder of Maia Well Co., a qualified Holistic Health Coach, experienced Retreat Host and Classical & Contemporary Pilates instructor. 

She began to study Pilates after years of falling in love with the practice and learning first hand of its significant benefits to both the mind and body, following years of burn-out during her previous career in the corporate world. After over a thousand hours of teaching experience, Zoe’s classes are designed with both physical and mental wellbeing in mind, using conscious dynamic Pilates exercises which focus upon developing core strength, lengthening and toning all muscles to promote improved posture, balance and alignment, whilst using conscious breath-work to facilitate movement, calm the mind and improve flexibility.



Wholesome Nourishing Food

Nourishing, wholesome, sustainably sourced and delicious wholesome and local food is at the heart of all our retreats.

All food on the retreat will be lovingly cooked using food fresh from the daily markets, plus an all day coffee, tea and fruit bar.

Our menus always focus on locally sourced, fresh and seasonal ingredients. For example for breakfast you can expect a beautiful selection of fruits, alongside freshly picked figs, yoghurts, granolas, freshly baked warm bread, roasted tomatoes, eggs any style and lots more. For lunches, we typically enjoy vibrant wholesome dishes by the poolside and dinners are usually under the stars with Ottolenghi style salads / vegetables alongside freshly caught fish or meat. 

Dietary requirements will always be catered for.
