'Elements of Life' - Yoga Retreat Greece
OPA! Join our Greek Odyssey and connect with the
elements of your life!
Join us in beautiful Greek Kalamata where nature is pristine and the sun always shines!
We offer you a program designed to connect you with all the elements allowing you to relax, restore, grow and go home energized. Daily yoga sessions, an introduction to the elemental knowledge of Ayurveda and yoga nidra will offer you deep practices and tools you can apply in your daily life to keep your OPA alive long after the retreat!
The Greek word OPA means many things. The Greek yell: ‘OPA’ when a plate falls and breaks in thousand pieces. It stands for the Greek spirit Kefi (the independent spirit) and is an expression of celebration and joy. It gives us the feeling it is great to be alive! When we lose the OPA in our life, it is a clear indication that we need to step back to reconnect. On this retreat, you have an opportunity to do just that!
In your free time you get to enjoy the Greek sun, Mediterranean home-cooked meals, visit one of the many beaches in the area, or just do absolutely nothing!

NELE VAN POUCKE
Blond, tiny but full of power just 3 words you could use to describe Nele.
Her classes are powerful yet calming. With Nele, you explore your edge – flexibility, strength, and endurance – in a playful way. The timbre of her voice gets you out of your thoughts and tempts you in a soft and meditative way. Her love for yoga is obvious in her classes, where passion, joy, and flow invite you to discover your own yogic journey.
Nele's main yoga inspiration is Prana Vinyasa Yoga developed by Shiva Rea, who she has been assisting for many years. Nele is one of the only 500hr certified teachers and Teacher Trainer in Belgium, offering Teacher Trainings in her own studio in Mechelen.
PRANA VINYASA FLOW:
Prana Flow is an innovative approach to vinyasa yoga and the state of flow drawn from Krishnamacharya's teachings, Tantra, Ayurveda, Bhakti, Kalarippayatu, Somatics and Shiva Rea's teaching experience from the last twenty years.
Suze is a Psychologist and certified yoga teacher. Throughout the years she deepened her knowledge in both fields by adding Family Constellations, TRE (Trauma Release Exercises) and Yoga Nidra to her qualifications.
Her passion for travel, a conscious lifestyle and (self) healing inspired her to start Global Flow Retreats in 2006. Global Flow Retreats offers retreat programs that have the power to transform your life.
Suze believes strongly that the holistic approach of combining yoga with disciplines like mindfulness, Ayurveda, trauma- and stress release practices, or family constellations offer all the tools we need to not only find inspiration but to gain insight and find the healing that can alter the course of our lives.
Her yoga teaching style is a combination of challenging asana sequences, focus on alignment, deep embodiment, and self-healing. The challenging parts of the practice are met with humor and clear guidance that keeps you safe and grounded. Suze's yoga nidra and meditation classes offer you a relaxation that goes beyond just physical relaxation and allows healing to take place on a deeper level.
Zen Rocks Mani is a unique solitary paradise in nature, within driving minutes from sea and civilization. The retreat is situated in a magnificent and sacred spot in Southern Greece within the olive growing region of Kalamata in the Mani peninsula.
Zen Rocks is a pristine, stunning retreat center for yoga, healing, and meditation. It invites you to enjoy the absolute beauty of nature, swim at exquisite beaches, walk, hike, visit nearby charming villages, ancient sites, and Byzantine churches, or simply relax and let the magical essence of this place heal you.
Expect to be pampered in warm hospitality, complete with delicious meals using fresh local ingredients and their own organic olive oil.
