This special weekend expedition is set in mount. Olympus. We will reside in Litocohoro a nice village in the foot of the mountain. According to the ancient greek mythology that was the place where the Greek Gods resided. It will be led by Panos Almanlis (the founder of Athens Parkour Academy) and Anastasis Tzanis (yoga instructor). 


The purpose is to train in nature. There will be physical exercises (from parkour & yoga), breathing exercises and cold training.
