THE KARDAKI ESTATE
Within this peaceful and private Estate, in the North East part or Corfu, are three luxury villas: Mimosa, Acacia & Jacaranda. Each house has a different look- bohemian, traditional and contemporary, within beautifully landscaped gardens and with individual pools. Only a stone’s throw away from the sandy Kalamaki beach, The Kardaki Estate is also within easy access to local villages.
Athena Women’s Retreat - Reclaim the essence of who you are
with Georgie Griggs and Nina Fowkes
20th - 24th April 2018 - 4 nights
(£1200pp / £950pp for 2 friends sharing)
Tell me who I am beyond what I do....
We are only able to reveal our true natures when we are willing to pause, find space to go inward so we can explore and reclaim the essence of who we are. We live in a time now where anything is possible and women can reach great heights in their personal and professional lives. However, our true wealth is our health and above that is our energy. When we feel motivated, inspired and alive we radiate pure positive energy that uplifts our souls and those around us. However, when we are depleted, burdened with worries and anxiety or self-doubt and judgement, our energy is low and our light dim.
Creating a safe healing space for your body and mind to gently let go of the stress and burdens that are holding you down and clouding your purpose is the basis of our retreat which we are offering to a maximum of 6 women.
You will be surrounded in the natural wild beauty of the Ionian isle of Corfu and with the spirit of Ancient Greek Goddesses to support and guide you on your personal journey of replenishment. With nourishing high vibrational foods, natural wellbeing workshops, healing body work, an abundance of essential oils from the air you breathe to the food you share; this is a retreat for a complete health and energy re-charge.

YOUR WELLNESS RETREAT HOSTS
Georgina first came to yoga 15 years ago when life as a lawyer had led to exhaustion. Learning to link the breath with the body was Georgina’s first realisation that our body offers us the wisdom to heal ourselves and a passion for natural healing was ignited.
Georgina fuses a variety of healing modalities including fascial yoga for true strength and flexibly, tension and trauma release therapy, essential oil therapy and Reiki healing body work. Her love of natural living led to a plant based vegan diet focused on living foods which she also teaches.
Through classes, workshops and retreats; Georgina guides women and girls to attune to and bring forth, the unlimited creative resource of wellbeing and happiness that lies within them. “What I am looking for it not out there, it is within me” Helen Keller
Holistic health, yoga and massage have been Nina’s passion for the past 30 years. She has lived, studied and practiced throughout Europe, The Far East and USA before settling in the UK where she founded the Yoga Garden in 2008.
"I am so happy to provide a calm, beautiful space where people can improve their sense of health and wellbeing and find that sense of connection and tranquility we are all seeking”.
As well as nurturing the growth of the Yoga Garden in the UK Nina teaches Restorative and Therapeutic Yoga, which incorporate the use of gentle Thai massage and essential oils. Over the years she has been been working with clients on a one to one basis and in small groups to support them through detox and weight loss programmes based on ayurvedic principals.
On this retreat Nina will be working alongside Georgie guiding you through deeply restorative yoga and meditation, blissfully healing massage treatments and structuring personalised Detox plans to help bring your body back into balance.
