“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”– Mark Twain
It has been my long held dream to be able to offer Conductive Education in a residential retreat setting. To create possibilities for individuals and groups to access Conductive Education programmes within beautiful surroundings that lift people out of their ordinary lives, nourish their senses and nurture their souls while providing the essential consistency which is the heart of the Conductive Education System.
I have been searching for places which are unique and would provide you with a holiday of a lifetime, while strengthening your commitment to your health and wellbeing by utilizing the philosophy and practise of the Pető System.
The Conductive Education Programme will take place in the mornings and will prepare you to fully enjoy the rest of the day. You will be able to experience the difference in your wellbeing when you start your day as Professor Pető intended when designed the programmes specifically for individuals with Parkinson’s.
I am inviting you to participate and enjoy this programme, but most importantly, use it! In order to attain the wellbeing that you desire and deserve you must wave the philosophy and the practise you will learn during this retreat into the fabric of your everyday life.
This is a beautiful, spacious,Interior Designed luxury villa just 250m from the sea. It has stunning sea views from ALL rooms and because of the position you will enjoy sunshine from early morning until late evening.
All bedrooms have large balcony space with sofas and sun loungers and stunning views of Kalkan bay and her islands.
There is a large infinity swimming pool for you to cool off in and numerous seating areas with chic contemporary sofas to lounge on.
I welcome you to an incredible journey- a journey in which results and emotional rewards go hand in hand.

From the recently published newsletter of the Bristol Branch of Parkinson’s UK: ” The Story of Conductive Education
The Bristol and District Branch of Parkinson’s UK has been providing Conductive Education (Pető System) classes for its members for 4 years at The Vassall Centre in Fishponds, Bristol. The Tuesday classes are held fortnightly and run in courses of 10 weeks. Each class is 2 hours long, from 10.30am to 12.30pm with a 10 minute break halfway and a drink and a snack provided.
The tailor made sessions involve practising specific movements in lying, sitting, standing and walking.
Pető institute trained
By using rhythm and verbal guidance the participants are able to improve initiation of movement, co-ordination, speech and start to take control of everyday life. The supportive group sessions also enable the participants time to discuss experiences in daily life and practical solutions in difficult areas. A New Forest based organisation ‘Szathmáry Training and Consultancy’ provide trained specialist Conductors who graduated from the Pető institute in Hungary in 1984.
The Conductors have 3-4 years of specific intensive training in Conductive Education to be able to provide programmes, solutions and support for individuals with neurological and related disabilities.
