Villa Hurmuses Hosts its Spring Mediterranean Retreat on Mykonos

Award-Winning Greek Villa’s 2018 Wellness Retreat Focuses on a Balanced Lifestyle

Villa Hurmuses, an award-winning luxury villa on Mykonos, will host its annual spring Mediterranean Retreat with a focus on a balanced lifestyle.  The retreat will take place at the villa from May 1 to May 5, 2018.

“The Mediterranean Retreat offers a lighthearted atmosphere that combines a dreamlike Greek island ambience with wellness practices for the body and soul,” says Sharona Hurmuses, the owner of Villa Hurmuses and coordinator of the Mediterranean Retreat. “It doesn’t matter what you know about fitness or spirituality. There is no judging here. There are no do’s and don’ts. This retreat is about feeling healthy and good.”

The Mediterranean Retreat program aims to bring awareness to one’s physical body, thoughts and emotions by intertwining aspects of the Greek island culture through various exercises and events in a relaxing Mediterranean island atmosphere.

Certified trainers and practitioners will lead circuit training, yoga and meditation exercises. Individual massages are also part of the package. Healthy Mediterranean meals will be prepared by the staff.  An excursion to the mystical ancient archaeological site on nearby Delos island is also part of the schedule. To round out the experience, a cooking class will offer guests a way to take home knowledge about local gastronomy and Greek cooking techniques.

“Our carefully planned itinerary gives our guests a way to be healthy and learn about healthy ways of living while making great memories with new friends,” says Hurmuses.
