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 & raised in a small town in Greece, moved to Los Angeles in 2012 to escape the economic crisis. After finishing my graduate studies at USC & UCLA, I decided to pursue a career in music business.
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 Canyon Tribe.
We provide authentic experiences through a collection of retreats worldwide & pop-up meditation sessions & conscious gatherings in unique locations around LA.
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. At CANYON TRIBE we celebrate women as much as men, we enjoy meditation as much as a Rock’n’Roll concerts & we drink smoothies as much as we drink tequila. We are real.
Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
My first Walkman.
