Retreat Program Description

Our potential for energy, creativity, and well-being is limitless. Yet, our daily stress and self-imposed limitations are constricting this natural flow of energy. When was the last time we felt fresh, happy, and alive, just like we did when we were children? This retreat in the heavenly healing embrace of nature in Mani has one single purpose: to refresh, recharge, and restore the spirit of health, energy, happiness and creativity in ourselves.

Vivi Letsou and her team of experienced Yoga teachers and massage therapists will be your expert, compassionate, and joyful guides on this ideal vacation retreat focused on YOU!

• Energizing Yoga & Meditation sessions will open and strengthen your body.
• Nature walks, swimming, kayaking, massage, and/or simple luxurious laying back and resting are there for your own joy and restoration.
• Get ready to feel great as layer upon layer of stress and tension shed from your body and mind.
.
• Delicious meals with fresh local produce, and ALIVE energy will be prepared for you in the tradition of our Avocado Vegetarian Café in Athens.

*The secret key to limitless energy lies in you: Breath, Movement, Meditation, and Deep Rest through Yoga Nidra, will help you to recover this key to total restoration

A few words about Teachers/Facilitators

Vivi Letsou

Bachelor’s of Science–Aeronautics, Master of Arts–Theater Arts,
Director of NYSY Yoga & Pilates Academy
Certified Teacher: Yoga Alliance 500 hours, BASIPilates™
Creator of Abhaya Yoga

A visionary and activist for positive change, Vivi loves to share the way of Yoga and Zen, two paths she has sought to combine for over 20 years, while a filmmaker in California. She returned to Greece in 2004 with a strong impetus to join and create enlightened communities.

Through her journey of teaching Yoga and practicing Zen, Vivi has been able to find a way of Practice & Action that makes us strong on all levels and helps us to triumph even in challenging circumstances.  Amidst the Greek economic crisis, Vivi and her beloved husband, Eraj, have managed to create successfully: NYSY Academy for Yoga and Pilates, and Avocado Vegetarian Café—two bright centers in the heart of Athens fostering community and a compassionate/healthy lifestyle. Recently they completed another life long dream, building Zen Rocks, a stunningly beautiful retreat center in Mani/Southern Greece, dedicated to re-building human potential through the healing practices of Zen, Yoga, Meditation, Pilates, Exercise, meaningful nutrition, and restorative living.

Her vision is largely inspired by Zen Buddhism and the teachings of her respected Zen master, Reb Anderson, from the San Francisco Zen Center. In the last few years, she has been been an avid follower of courses by the phenomenal Sally Kempton on Tantric Texts on meditation. On the yoga-pilates path, Vivi has practiced and taught in the traditions of Ashtanga Yoga, Vinyasa, Bhakti Flow, Anusara Yoga, and BASI Pilates.

Vivi’s passion for a brave and upright way of being is effervescent. She would like every Abhaya Yoga class to be a journey of self-discovery, where students recognize their own power, beauty, and potential for positive change. Hundreds of bright yogis and yoga teachers have emerged from her workshops and teacher training programs, now spreading their unique light and holding the mirror for others, making our whole planet brighter!

When you are ready for POSITIVE CHANGE,
your life will CHANGE POSITIVELY!
