Meet Celia Polyzou of Canyon Tribe in Benedict Canyon

Today we’d like to introduce you to Celia Polyzou.

Celia, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Born and raised in Greece, I moved to Los Angeles, CA in 2012 to pursue a Masters degree and a career in the music industry. After realizing that the most rewarding journey is the journey inside, I founded Mantras & Mixtapes in an effort to share the healing powers of a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

Four years later, after striving to maintain a healthy & contributive lifestyle, it was time to exit the corporate world. I managed to find peace of mind on my mat, guidance in my books, inspiration in my records, & sanity in my travels.

I decided that I wanted to share my passion for fitness & traveling & help people live a more conscious & balanced life. I created CANYON TRIBE after moving to Benedict Canyon with my tribe – my husband & our 4 kids.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I struggled to find my own path. Now that I am here it is still a grind but I feel like everything is falling into place.

Please tell us about Mantras & Mixtapes.
We create intimate, authentic journeys in idyllic destinations, incorporating daily mindful practices, physical activities and guided group excursions while offering the opportunity for solitude and self reflection.

Our mission is to help people restore balance in mind, body & spirit, make their physical & mental health a priority, cultivate mindfulness & creativity, discover the transformative effects of traveling, connect with like-minded individuals & live a contributive life.

Our emphasis is on being authentic, rather than trying to fit in. We celebrate women as much as men, we enjoy stillness as much as Rock’n’Roll concerts, we drink smoothies as much as we drink whiskey. We are perfectly imperfect. We are real.
