Our vision and mission
More Life Adventures started as an answer to a slow burn-out from city living. After 22 years of unbroken time in central London, Stella knew she had to escape to a wilder, more natural place to get healthy and recharge before stepping back into the busy-ness of city life. She was lucky to find a group of people who found value in the same mission.
Our dream is to help you find your joy and feel more alive. We believe we can do this through CrossFit training in the elements and through time in the wild where you reflect and process.
Our mission is to Train, Explore, Recharge.
Who we are
Stella spent a few early childhood holidays in Plaka with her family. She rediscovered it many years later using it for active holidays for her friends. As a personal trainer, she is passionate about coaching and connecting. She decided to upgrade the Plaka house to a fitness venue and is now honoured to extend her active holiday invitation to a wider audience.
Hannah is an explorer at heart, pushing her limits in whatever sport will take her on an adventure. Her primary sports are running and cycling. She’s usually the first one to rise and be on a run to catch the sunrise. She is a project manager, mainly handling creative projects such as filming and photoshoots and likes to try her hand at sports photography. Hannah was invited to Plaka back when Stella re-discovered it and now helps organise the retreats here.
