Costa Navarino Announces An Excluisive Hormonal Balance Retreat

Costa Navarino, the sustainably driven destination in Greece’s southwest Peloponnese, announces an exclusive transformative wellness retreat focusing on hormone health and wellbeing to help women thrive during peri menopause and menopause.  

The first “Hormone Balance Clinic” will take place from May 17-21, and will be led by Dr Sabine Wünschmann, a renowned obstetrician gynaecologist and Women’s Hormone and Endocrine expert with over 30 years of expertise.

The exclusive 5-day retreat is open to a limited number of participants, to ensure a personalised and in-depth engagement for each person. It will focus on a holistic approach to reduce inflammation, pain and stubborn weight to help reclaim vitality and guard against chronic hormonal imbalances and diseases. Dr Sabine will be supported by Kanelli Scalcoyannis, a women’s wellness coach and chef specialising in anti-inflammatory foods. She will also be joined by Maria Maleviti, a seasoned Hatha Yoga and Integral Transformational yoga instructor.  

Guests will learn how to optimize health during perimenopause and menopause and how to connect the dots between their symptoms, by applying effective strategies to achieve hormone balance, organ optimisation and overall wellbeing. Each day of the retreat will focus on a different aspect of hormones and health:  the benefits of an anti-inflammatory diet; gut and liver optimisation; stress reduction and ongoing hormone care.  Dr Sabine’s daily sessions will begin by looking at the symptoms of hormone imbalance before addressing blood sugar regulation, the importance of a healthy gut, pelvic floor health, liver metabolism and detox, sleep optimisation and the effects of cortisol and de-stressing.  

During the retreat, there will be morning yoga and meditation classes with practices like breath exercises to help reduce cortisol and yoga to improve lymphatic drainage.  Focusing on a balanced diet, the retreat will include an anti-inflammatory cooking class, a talk on intermittent fasting and detox menus.  

In addition, the integrated wellness experience will include abdominal massages, thalassotherapy, algae wrap containing spirulina algae rich in anti-oxidants, essential vitamins and minerals, an anti-cellulite massage, sauna or hammam for detoxification and a jet shower of pure seawater to stimulate the lymphatic system and remove toxins.  All the treatments are offered at the awarded Anazoe Spa.

Retreat participants will enjoy luxury accommodation in a unique setting overlooking the Ionian Sea, at The Westin Resort Costa Navarino. Alongside the retreat, they will have the opportunity to unwind and experience the destination’s offering with state-of-the-art sports facilities and a wealth of outdoor activities, engaging with the region’s culture, history, and nature.
