Yoga, walking and wellbeing.
Spring sunshine, well being and joy!
If you have never been to Greece in spring then you are in for treat. This holiday is a combination of wonderful local walks, yoga, qi gong (chinese health excercises) relaxation and massages. The walks range from easy strolls lasting a couple of hours to more demanding ascents and walks along the gorges, mountains and ancient kalderimi (dry stone footpaths).
The yoga classes are suited to the experienced practitioner as well as the beginner, your teacher guiding you according to your abilities.
We are situated in the Mani region of the Peloponnese, one of the most stunning and inspiring regions of Greece. Behind The Spirit of Life Centre are the magnificent Taygetos Mountains, with walking trails leading up to the peaks and the start of the trans-Europe E4 hiking route!
In the olive groved foothills there are walks winding past traditional Greek villages, old Byzantine churches and traditional stone houses with their distinctive towers. Paths wind along the magnificent gorges with their old monasteries. Finally there are stunning coastal walks that cling to the cliff edges.
Spring is a stunning period of the year in the Mani. The warm, sunny days make it perfect for exploring the foothills and olive groves. The landscape is ablaze with the colours of poppies, cyclamen, anemones, irises and more than 600 unique species of plants.
