“Yoga is art. Through the asanas I see bodies like sculptures pulsing and forming colors from prana vibrations. The breath to the rhythm of each person’s personal sound is the music of life. Through vinyasa I discover the divine sound of soul. In meditation, I feel the poetry of the universe. To me Yoga is the art of being “THAT” and this is what I communicate through every practice I guide.”
My journey in the path of Yoga started here at Yoga House. I followed the 200h training course with Christos Charikiopoulos and took my first information about Vinyasa Flow from Valerie Saier. At first, I wanted to integrate elements from yoga into my teaching of modern dance, but soon enough yoga became a big chapter of my life. I continued by exploring Vinyasa Flow Yoga. I followed one more training course of Yoga Trance Dance and Prana Flow by Shiva Rea in Los Angeles. I took lessons by Erich Schiffman to discover Freedom Yoga. With Valerie Saier I had post-training course to Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). I also followed a workshop on VInyasa Flow Yoga by Blaire Lindsay in Cihangir Yoga Studio in Konstantinoupolis and an online seminar on history of Vinyasa by Christopher Thomkins. I completed the training of 500h here again in Yoga House with Christos Charikiopoulos and Chrysa Mpampali.
I started my path studying classical and modern dance, at the Superior Professional school of Anna Petrova, and in France to the Centre International de dance Rosella Hightower and I continued with acting studies in Centre du Marais in Paris. Relatively recently I studied architecture of inner space in AKTO, which led me to exploration and deeper understanding of the space element.
I worked for many years as a dancer in theater and later as a choreographer in Paris and in Athens. I’ve been teaching modern dance for the last seven years and yoga for the last three.
My classes are oriented towards flow of motion and energy. I always incorporate elements from dance and from nature cycles, seasons, lunar periods… it is what I call Organic Motion. Besides flow approach I suggest Yoga Dance where motion is released from alignments and becomes free, improvising, pagan. One more element I always explore in practice is successiveness and progression of motion.
Art is what fascinates and guides me in all of its aspects: dance, painting, architect, music, poetry…
