The Christmas Meet Market at Athinais
Saturday 19 & Sunday 20 December 2015
Kastorias 34 – 36, Votanikos 10447
13:00 – 23:00 each day
This year, we are going to celebrate the holidays with not 1, but 2 Meet Markets, starting with our Christmas Edition at Athinias. It’s the 3rd year we are there, so it feels like our holiday home! And as one does with their home, we are going to decorate it and fill it up with 100 plus stands from local desingers, artists, djs and small scale businesses.
Join us for some yuletide festivities, some djs sets, some shopping and booty bopping, and some warm, fuzzy feelings – the kind you get from seeing familiar faces and drinking gluwein. Along side the Meet Market, we will also be hosting plenty of free parallel activities for kids in the Music Theater including performances, interactive games, face painting and story telling! And for grownups, whats more appropriate than a super relaxing massage at our Thai Yoga Massage Room… and of course, as in every market, there will be plenty of gifts and goodies to win a the central cash point.
S0, bring your friends, bring your parents, bring your kids, bring your old laptop, or even come alone because there really is something for everyone.

“Sacred Room ” – Τhai Yoga Massage room : 19 & 20/12/2015, 13:00 – 23:00
Sacred Room is back again this Christmas, offering holistic, relaxing massages on a donation basis, in order to demonstrate and introduce the ancient knowledge of Thai Yoga massage. Four, specially equipped massage “stations” are awaiting for you to have a small ‘rest’ during the day…..to meet the feeling of touch with a touch of love! Thai Yoga massage is based on applying pressure and stretching the body, in a way that awakens and facilitates the circulation of vital energy, and gives the receiver a feeling of relaxation and a deeper connection with the physical and spiritual body. Come and meet us in person, and get acquainted with your bodies….Give a little treat to your lower back or your shoulders…..and move on to your shopping with less pain and less worries, because when love is the tool….you can do nothing but heal!
