” Callan Pinckney was born and raised in Savannah, Georgia USA. From her childhood she had serious problems in her spine. He then wanted to travel the world, from Asia to Africa. When he returned to America and combined various forms of dance, movement and exercise, he created Callanetics. Only Callanetics was able to relieve her chronic back pain. At first it was addressed mainly to people with spine problems and then a big change was noticed in the external appearance of those who followed its program. Thus began people from all over the world to be trained in her method.”

Every person is unique. The success of the alternative method Callanetics lies in the sensitivity with which it treats each trainee individually, in order to achieve the best possible result in the right way.

Each exercise of the Callanetics is modified and adapted to the needs of the trainee. The goal is to mobilize and increase the range of motion of the joints, as well as to develop strength and flexibility, through the small consciously controlled movement safely.

The Callanetics method, proposed by TOM MYERS, creator of ANATOMY TRAINS, achieves in a very short time the development of deep muscle strength, muscular endurance, the correct alignment of the spine and the activation of the pelvic floor, while improving strength and flexibility, respectively, in a simple and at the same time dynamic way. Each Callanetics exercise is limited to specific muscle groups at a time, where with controlled and targeted minimal movement on the shafts, they are activated to the maximum of contraction or stretching each time.

Callanetics is an alternative form of exercise, without dangerous loads or vibrations, which makes it accessible to everyone, at any age, gender and physical condition, even to people who have never exercised before or who suffer from musculoskeletal problems.

You do not need any Gym equipment. Our gym is our own body.
The trainee gains control of his body from the first lessons and achieves the restoration of the correct posture and movement with a simultaneous change in his external image.

This tour is taking place in the village of Platsa and the ampitheater with its magnificent view to Mani Peninsula and especially to vilages of Agios Nikolaos and Stoupa.

Platsa is among olive trees 54 km at northeast of Kalamata , at an altitude of 370 meters. Platsa with its traditional style, the fortified towers and magnificent natural environment is very interesting as it is a typical traditional village of Mani. It is built in a privileged location overlooking the majestic Taygetos to the east and the Messinian Bay and the deep blue Ionian Sea to the west.

Here you will join us in the aphitheater of Platsa at our Callanetics gym overlooking the dawn or sunset and the villages of Agios Nikolaos and Stoupa.
