Welcome to this healing Earth…
It was a strong call to come, build, and inhabit the earth here, mother Gaia, relish her healing beauty and serenity, accept her invitation to cultivate deep practice through yoga, healthy nutrition, massage, community work, uplifting music and song, and, primarily, meditation.
Accommodations at Zen Rocks Mani Retreat are comfortable, and elegant if not luxurious. It took a battle with the Giants to overcome many obstacles and succeed in completing this first phase of building this retreat. Recourses are expensive and we picked the best materials and craftsmanship, so I hope when you try to invite your friends and students, they will understand that they will be staying in a hand carved paradise on earth.
There are several terraces on which yoga classes currently take place depending on the sun and the time of the day.
One of our most unique attractions our newly build magnificent yoga deck. Large enough to accommodate 50-60 people with great views of the sea and horizon, our finely crafted Yoga Deck is actually one of the best places in the world to practice. You are up there in heaven practically, with mesmerising views and a very pleasant breeze even in the hottest summer days… Build with the finest African Iroko wood and assembled by the best professionals in the field in Greece, our Yoga Shala makes your trip to Mani worthy and memorable.
Interior Yoga, Mediation Hall and/or Pilates Studio Space for about 16 people. A very quiet, sunny room with finely crafted iron wood floors, in soft white shades and Zen simplicity.
Zen Rocks is an all organic Olive Grove with several vegetable garden areas and herb terraces as well. As much as possible we use our own organic produce, or fresh produce from local farms. The herbs grown here and the wild herbs found high up on the Mountain of Taygetos are very powerful with strong healing properties.
Home cooked, vegetarian and/or vegan meals may be prepared according to your needs and preferences. We use local seasonal produce grown from our land or neighboring gardens. Fresh goat milk, daily eggs, and hand picked fresh fruit can be added to your menu. Your meals are prepared by wonderful inspired cooks.
