Our Holistic Centre
Time to relax
The Spirit of Life holistic holiday centre lies just above the fishing village of Agios Nicolaos. It is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, with a backdrop of inspiring mountains and views over the blue Mediterranean. Less than a mile away is the larger village of Stoupa with its four beautiful sandy beaches and crystalline waters.
The holistic holiday Centre was built in the traditional Maniot style, using the stone crafted from the land itself. The Spirit of Life centre is located in the area that was ancient Lefkotron. Pausanias the 2nd Century Greek travel writer, recorded that there was a temple dedicated to Asclepius, the god of healing, in this area. It was at these healing temples that Therapeutes (the first therapists) used a mind, body and spirit approach to health and healing.

There is much to do (or not to do) in the locality with beautiful beaches, stunning walks and many optional classical tours (Ancient Messini, Gythion, Olympia, Mystras, and Kardamyli).This is perfect if you are also bringing a non-participating partner.
Mountains and sea
The food in the Peloponnese is excellent with many vegetarian choices and locally caught fresh fish. Our class numbers are small, up to 14 people for most classes. Our teachers are all very experienced and passionate about their subject. We are sure that you will be energised and inspired by the beauty and special heart energy of the area. If you wish you can enjoy optional healing sessions during your stay.
The course room is the entire upper floor of the centre building, with windows on every side providing wonderful views. A smooth woodern floor and many different lighting settings. It was purpose built for holding holistic holiday courses. A large balcony is attached to the course room and there is also a covered pergola that is sometimes used for outside sessions.
