People Talk About Zen Rocks

Just took my team for a retreat to Zen Rocks Mani. A great location for reflection and rejuvenation. The team at Zen Rocks could not have been more helpful, the set up perfect and the food delicious. If you need space in a beautiful location this is right up there.

Tom Stephenson
CEO Wittur Group - Corporate Retreat

The retreat is beautiful - The food is beyond healthy and amazing - very clean and well-maintained from the individual rooms themselves to the common areas!  The staff is extremely professional, very friendly and overly accommodating!  The owner is an exceptional individual who is caring, thoughtful and a joy to be around!  A true bonus is all of the pets at the retreat making it truly feel like home!

Kristin Brancato

Had the chance to spend there 3 days for a corporate retreat. Zen Rocks is an extraordinary place managed by amazing people who take hospitality and care to the next level, from yoga to zen and fitness programs all very well mixed with great food. Fully recommended !

Federico Ciardelli

The energy of the place and the people there is so uplifting that, in a magical way, the visitor is engaged to participate in all mental and physical activities...and even help in the kitchen! It feels like being at home. May the Zen Rock community be created and rise!

It’s hard to put into words just how wonderful Zen Rocks is. The pictures don’t quite do justice to the beauty and tranquility of the place. The rooms are wonderfully modern, the cocomat beds, incredibly comfortable, the food, delicious - and the view, mesmerising. But more than this, what makes Zen Rocks so very special is the people: Vivi, Eraj and their team, John and Gregorio who made our trip truly unforgettable, and we hope, become friends for life. We can’t wait to come back soon Stuart, Marina, Alfie & Dylan x

The resort is located in a truly unique natural setting amongst olive groves. The rooms were tastefully furnished in beautiful modern design with traditional materials, each overlooking a spectacular panorama view towards the sea in daytime, and fantastic starry sky at night. Extremely welcoming and hospitable staff. Definitely a place to go to for anyone in search of peace of mind and serenity.

In that magnificent place you enjoy the openness of the blue sky and the sea, walking under the olive trees and smelling lavender, basilica, oregano. The houses are perfectly incorporated in the environment with high aesthetics quality to the last detail. The hosts have created a place of beauty, simplicity and harmony ready to welcome you!!

Sustainability

Zen Rocks employs only local people and makes every effort to source only local food produce. Materials are also local wherever possible, the walls are madewith local stone and a local family of furniture makers are responsible for the beautiful hand carved stools, benches and bed heads. All organic waste iscomposted, it's plastic free where possible, and guests are invited to conserve water. Bathroom products are natural, the bed linen is organic cotton and themattresses are made with coconut fibre.

Retreat Experiences

Retreats normally last three or six nights, though shorter and longer stays are also available (by arrangement) for those wishing to drop in on the daily yoga,Pilates and zen meditation schedule. The teacher is either the owner of Zen Rocks, Vivi Letsou, or one of her trusted team of international teachers. A typicalday features morning Zen meditation followed by an Ayurvedic healing drink, a two hour yoga and/or Pilates class, brunch, rest or yoga therapy training, thenan evening restorative yoga or Pilates class followed by dinner and sunset meditation with a late evening Yoga Nidra/music/relaxation/Zen meditation session.

YOGA AND YOGA THERAPY

Vivi Letsou handpicks yoga teachers who are calm, centered and deeply knowledgeable. Expect to practise Abhaya Yoga (created by Vivi to help us align withthe wisdom of the heart and live fearlessly), Dynamic Vinyasa Flow as well as Therapeutic Alignment, Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra. Classes are around twohours each and usually take place around 9-11 am (post meditation and an immune-boosting lemon, ginger, honey and turmeric drink) and after dinner.

Vivi is also an Anusara certified yoga therapist. The depth of her anatomical understanding is a huge draw to yoga teachers the world over, and is also of immediateuse to anyone wanting to improve their alignment. Sessions focus on a body part; say the feet - "the roots of the body" - or the many complexities of theshoulder joint.

MINDFULNESS AND MEDITATION

Zen Rocks offers several kinds of meditation including the simple Viloma Pranayama which expands the breath and lung capacity through gentle holds, andNadi Shodhana or Alternate Nostril Breathing. Expect an introduction to Zen Buddhism meditation too - both seated and walking. Meditation is usuallyconducted first thing in the morning and classes last around 45 minutes, depending on the teacher.

Zen Mindfulness Meditation is part and parcel of the daily programme and guests are encouraged to exercise mindfulness across all activities during their stay -whether that's conserving water in the shower or taking only what is needed during mealtimes. There are also specific mindfulness retreats throughout the year.Look out for Vivi Letsou's Refresh and Renew Retreat (where the day starts and ends with a mindfulness meditation), the Zen Retreat with two San Francisco-based Zen priests, and the Yoga and Mindful Eating/Plant Based Diet Retreat.

TREATMENTS

Treatments include Reflexology, Deep Tissue Massage, and Shiatsu. Don't miss the Thai Yoga Massage with Betty Papadopoulou - akin to being rolled on theocean waves, it will leave you feeling positively beatific.

An Ayurvedic doctor is available for consultation and massage on request. Treatments take place inyour bedroom or in the yoga shala and usually last one hour plus.

NATURE AND BEACHES

Abundant bushes of rosemary, thyme and oregano scent a gentle stroll around the grounds. Feast your eyes on the gnarled bark of olive trees and the clay potred earth, sit at the feet of a stone Buddha, or cozy down on a sun lounger to better gaze at the white washed walls and terracotta roofs of distant villages.Borrow a bike or head out on foot towards the mountains or walk the 6 kilometres to the tiny secluded beach on the other side of the bay. The nearest bigbeaches are Kitries (10 minutes drive) and Kardamyli (30 minutes). Both are stone and pebble.

A further 10-minute drive brings you to the long sandy beachesof Stoupa (the town that inspired the setting of Nikolas Kazantzakis's Zorba the Greek), and it's another 10 minutes to the beach at St. Nicholas. The Zen Rocksminivan offers daily rides to the beach. For the more active, bicycling, mountain trekking, beach walks and water sports (including canoeing) are also available.

PILATES

Zen Rocks offers dedicated Pilates retreats and Pilates teacher training weeks. Private and public Pilates classes are also available on request.
