CLIMB TO HEAL

1. What it’s all about?

The program focuses on the concept of self-healing in connection with climbing. It emphasizes that our body, soul, and mind are interconnected, and a healthy approach to our body impacts various aspects of our lives, including climbing. The program is designed for anyone seeking a healthier lifestyle in today's stressful world. It addresses the lack of time for self-care and the development of chronic diseases due to our busy lives. This climbing coaching healing retreat offers a unique approach by incorporating climbing, yoga, a healthy diet, meditation, massage, and other activities into one week. The instructor draws from their experience with healthy foods, specifically from Medical Medium protocols, which benefit physical and mental health. The program encourages participants to consider the instructor's personal story as evidence of the approach's effectiveness.

Climbing rock and style

Leonidio climbing is on solid limestone rock, typically with long tufa columns, juggy overhanging routes, climbing on grey slabs, then vertical technical walls with small crimps, easier routes on red solid rock with lots of fun. Leonidio is the place to be if you're looking for a warm climbing destination in winter with excellent routes on solid limestone. More than 2000 routes attract climbers worldwide, and Leonidio has become another climbing venue where climbers live.

Anja's Story

This is my personal journey through battling endometriosis and finding relief through alternative methods, particularly the Medical Medium protocols. Despite struggling with severe pain and ineffective conventional treatments, I experienced a drastic improvement in my life after adopting a plant-based diet and following Medical Medium recommendations. The newfound vitality allowed me to excel in climbing, realizing the profound impact of nutrition on both physical and mental well-being. Encouraged by my transformation, I now aim to share my experience and knowledge through a climbing coaching program called "CLIMB TO HEAL," which emphasizes the connection between diet, health, and climbing performance. The program will take place in Leonidio, Greece, offering participants guidance on improving their climbing and overall health through a holistic approach.

Daily program overwiev

 

Welcome to the comprehensive week-long program! Let me walk you through the schedule:

Upon arrival, settle into a comfortable apartment where I'll be readily available. The program is designed to be special, starting with lessons on preparing healthy meals and snacks.

Each morning, we kick-start the day with a revitalizing routine: drinking half a liter of lemon-infused water, followed by at least half a liter of fresh celery juice after a 20-minute wait. Then, we'll enjoy a nutritious breakfast, typically fruit-based with gluten-free oats or alternatives, occasionally complemented by fruit smoothies.

The day's activities involve invigorating yoga, meditation, and climbing sessions. During climbing sessions, we'll have wholesome snacks like fruits and raw vegetables. As part of this special week, you'll also learn about cleansing techniques.

We can dine out or prepare a delectable and healthy meal together for dinner. Throughout the week, I'll teach you how to create plant-based dishes. If you have a preference for meat or fish, that's entirely fine, too. I'll conduct a workshop on dietary choices, allowing you to decide how you'd like to eat going forward.

Activities

Each day brings a variety of engaging activities:

  • Climbing sessions focus on improving endurance, technique, and mental fortitude with theoretical and practical components.
  • Yoga classes led by an experienced instructor are scheduled twice weekly.
  • Evenings are reserved for dancing, providing a space for free expression.
  • Workshops cover topics such as nutrition and mental training for climbing, supplemented with relevant materials.
  • Meditation sessions, both in nature and indoors, offer moments of tranquility. Sometimes, they incorporate fruit-picking as a meditative activity.
  • A massage class will be held to learn basic techniques for post-climbing relaxation.
  • Painting sessions serve as another form of meditative expression.

Join us for a transformative journey towards improved climbing performance and holistic well-being.
