Women’s Workshop – Greece

September 2023

On these holy days of introspection and Atonement, we invite you to come be together in one of Greece’s most spectacular locations: The Peloponnese Mani region, surrounded by Mother Nature in all her might.

This unique six-day workshop will be led and facilitated by two renowned and experienced instructors: Mira Arzi Padan – who will share her wide and profound knowledge on Female Yoga, and Sagit Emet – who will teach us how to harvest the power of creative writing in order to access our innermost strengths. We will practice Female Yoga, meet ourselves in writing, shed any unnecessary layers, and invite what we want for a good and beneficial New Year.

We invite you to treat yourself to a getaway vacation filled with rest, nature and in-depth workshops that will help you start the New Year with a clear mind, and a healthy body and soul.

You deserve it! So let go; our team will take care of everything.

The Zen Rocks center is located in the middle of an ancient olive grove, surrounded by nature. Made of unique Mani region stone, the hotel is designed in the minimalistic, clean-cut fashion that only Zen design can offer. It is located a 2.5-hour drive from Athens, 20 min from Kalamata city -and around 10 mins from the beach.


The teachers

Developer of the ‘Feminine Yoga’ method, which she has been teaching for over two decades and has trained hundreds of instructors and yoga teachers, mira has been the chairperson of the Yoga Teachers Association’s ethics committee since 2018. Her unique method adapts traditional yoga positions to the needs of the female body, focusing on routines tailored to address the many transformations and cycles women experiences throughout their lives – such as menstruation, pregnancy, post-partum and menopause. Mira exceptional method also addresses common physical issues women may face: pelvic dysfunctions, fertility issues, menopause symptoms and more. To Mira Arzi Padan website

I am honored and thrilled at the opportunity to share the language and wisdom of feminine yoga with you. By combining movement and the teachings of my friend and partner, Sagit – we will be able to observe the passing year and prepare ourselves for the coming one. Let us shed any tensions or conflicts the pasted year has left us with, and focus on the sensations, thoughts and emotions that will motivate the next chapter of our lives.

An award-winning author and playwright (the Levi Eshkol 2021 prize for ‘Days to See’, as well as both the Ze’ev and Leah Goldberg prizes for ‘Gaya’s Dawn’), Sagit has been a writing workshop facilitator and mentor for over two decades. Sagit describes the writing of her first book as a healing experience, which has taught her just how important the role of a mentor is to writers and led her to mentor hundreds of writers since. To Sagit Emet website

In the five days we will spend writing alongside each other in this retreat, we will learn how to communicate in two separate languages: the spoken and the written one. I have long since learned that this combination is a powerful and effective one, offering those who practice it both healing and enrichment. Our main goal is to create an inspiring safe space, where every woman is encouraged to reach her full potential – starting the new year on a lighter, happier and more fulfilled note.
