Greece, Peloponnese: Get started with yoga, pilates or zen

Whether you live permanently in Greece and the Peloponnese or are here on vacation: get started with yoga, pilates or zen technique at Zen Rocks Mani. Release all the musts for a moment and learn for a week how you can deepen the relaxed Greek lifestyle that advocates "carpe diem". Get professional guidance and fellowship with others and begin your own personal journey to peace and balance. Everyone can do yoga and meditate! Yoga or Pilates is not about performance, perfection or flexibility, but about finding harmony in body and soul. Release a stressful everyday life and invest in going away to get closer to yourself.

"Zen Rocks": When you are ready for POSITIVE CHANGE, your life will CHANGE POSITIVELY!

Behind the concept, Vivi Letsou, a visionary and advocate of positive change, Vivi has combined Yoga and Zen in his last 20 years: from film industry in California to owner of NYSY Academy for Yoga and Pilates and Avocado Vegetarian Café in Athens. Everything she does promotes a healthy lifestyle and empathy for fellow human beings.

The center is dedicated to rebuilding the balance using zen, yoga, meditation, pilates and meaningful courses. The courses are conducted by Vivi and / or her invited colleagues.

In addition to attending the courses, you can enjoy the beautiful unspoiled Peloponnese, swim in the crystal clear Mediterranean, hike, visit nearby charming villages and Byzantine churches.

All food that you are served and participate in to prepare is based on fresh local ingredients and your own organic olive oil. You can also book massages and individual immersion in meditation or yoga on site. All for you to recreate your balance and your well-being!
