2nd suggestion-2nd group

** Hatha Yoga with the instructor Nicol Daravelia in the fitness hall of the Loutraki thermal spa
**  Hydrotherapy into the ultramodern thermal pool spa
**  Visit the monastery of Osios Patapios

The program will start with Hatha yoga.

Few words:

Hatha Yoga is the most widely spread type of yoga in the West. It is focused on physical health and mental wellbeing. It uses body postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama), and meditation (dyana) with an aim to bring about a healthy body and clear and peaceful mind. The exercises will took place into the modern spacious room and they will last 1.5 hour.
Continuous on, we will enjoy the hydrotherapy into the pool with thermal spa.

In LOUTRAKI THERMAL SPA there are three swimming pools with thermal water of Loutraki. The two of them are indoor heated pools with waterfalls and jet hydro massaging (underwater massage), of 201 m2 and 40 m2 respectively and depth 1.15 m. Before our guests enter the pools, they are welcomed by the Doctor of the Center who takes the guest’s medical background and gives them the appropriate advice. Immediately after that, our guests head to the locker room, get the special cap and start their desirable bath.
The water in swimming pools is at 31 degrees C0, which is the natural temperature (natural springs temperatures are from 29.5 to 31 degrees C0), so it is not contraindicated for heart diseases or phlebitis.
Depending on the treatment we want to achieve, we select the corresponding spot of the pool suitable for hydro massaging with specific launchers for treating neck, back, legs, the calves and the soles. Moreover, in the large pool there is the function of counter-current swimming.
The Hydrotherapies are appropriate and ideal for arthritis, to restore the mobility after an orthopedic surgery, hollow and slipped disk. It also helps chronic inflammatory skin disorders like eczema and psoriasis lesions. At the same time offers rejuvenation, welfare and relaxation..

Take advantage of the special rates for groups that we arranged and enjoy a relaxing bath in thermal spa!
