Zen Zone is the first health & wellness travel company in Slovenia to present its guests with a range of travel experiences and healing programs for prevention of lifestyle diseases that come as a result of our modern stressful way of life.
Living a healthy and meaningful life in the city is challenging. It is completely normal that we sometimes feel caught in a habitual lifestyle, experiencing days as fleeting, passing by too fast and unnoticed. But, if this lasts for a long time, it can lead to a sense of meaninglessness, exhaustion and even sickness.
Anja’s experience as an architect exploring the relationship between physical environment and psychosocial wellness and a mindfulness and yoga teacher of 17 years, brought her to a realisation that as urban dwellers we need to take one step further. She created the Mind-Body-Space program to systematically guide you towards establishing a mind-body connection as well as a connection to the space around you as perceived by the senses.
This is where Zen Zone and Anja Humljan come together. We organised a “Mind Body Space” retreat at Villa Fabiani, a romantic and peaceful boutique estate and a cultural monument situated in the heart of the enchanting Karst region of Slovenia. This 600 years old vineyard estate consists of a farm mansion with the main courtyard, where the old Mulberry has been reigning for centuries.
Villa Fabiani is the birthplace of a famous Slovene architect Max Fabiani and is, therefore, a protected cultural monument. Villa Fabiani is a love story of the Karst and its people from Trieste’s flourishing times. As such Villa Fabiani made a perfect setting for taking our guests on a love story of their own …
… Imagine a journey consisting of a Sitting practice kindly welcoming all your thoughts and emotions, a Body scan bringing a friendly awareness to a whole range of bodily sensations, a Yoga flow gently stretching the body and awakening the senses …
… Imagine a journey consisting of Spatial sensing bringing you closer to a mesmerising experience of the magical environment, exploring it through touch and movement and last, but not least, a reflection of the unforgettable journey by writing a letter to yourself.
A “Mind Body Space” retreat takes a couple of days, but is a lifelong investment. By joining this captivating journey our guests plant a seed towards healthier and more meaningful life in the city.
Would you like to get inspired by your inner world as well as your surroundings? Just get in touch – we would love you as our guest.
