Yoga Classes

Yoga is a traditional holistic path, through which the practitioner aims at the integration of all levels of existence, in order to experience clarity, serenity and wellbeing.

Some of the most important benefits of regular yoga practice,
include the improvement of
– body posture
– flexibility and muscle joint mobility
– enhancement of balance and concentration
– quality breathing and overall clarity of mind.

In other words, it helps us obtain better body awareness, get in touch with our inner self, reconnect with the environment and be more present in every moment of our life.

With the practice of postures (asanas),
breathing techniques (pranayama) and
meditation (dhyana)
our body, mind and spirit come into perfect health and alignment.
We practice on expanding, stretching, opening up and releasing blockages in the body, letting the energy flow as freely as possible.
It is the best possible way to start the day,
feeling more energized, peaceful and creative.

Detailed information

class description

The class is 1 and a half hour.
We begin with mild breathing exercises (pranayama) and stretching, in order to slowly wake up the body.
After a short warm up through a small vinyasa or surya namaskar we enter the main part of our practice, the yoga asanas, where we focus on alignment, stability and flexibility.
Our practice concludes with a 10 minute relaxation (savasana) with the purpose of restoring our basic body functions and maintaining the energy created through the above practice.
It is a hatha yoga class inspired and influenced by yoga systems such as iyengar, sivananda and satyananda.

Marilou…

has been practicing from a very early age next to inspiring yoga teachers in Greece and abroad.
In 2006 she started working for ‘Shantom House of Culture’, where she also participated in practical and theoretical workshops with Leda Shantala.
Following the desire to deepen her understanding of the yogic philosophy and always guided by her beloved teacher, in 2010 she completed her first teacher training (RYT 200hr) at the Sivananda Vedanta Centre in Tyrol.
Feeling the continuous need to enrich her knowledge, in 2013 she completed the advanced teacher training (RYT 500hr) at Ghyta Yoga School and continues to practice with many wonderful teachers that have guided her along her path until the present day.
(Michalis Filinis, Alessandro Ortona, Angela Farmer, Ana Forrest).
Over the last years she was naturally drawn to the Iyengar way, participating in classes and workshops regularily with some of the most experienced Iyengar instructors in Greece (Zoi Gaitanidou, Konstantinos Giannetakis, Voula Bolou, Ephrat Michelson). Her asana practice has grown in depth particularly through the Iyengar system, which  also provided inspiration and essential details in sharing her understanding of the teachings with others.

Her classes now focus on detail, precision and the structural alignment of the body,
always with respect to individual boundaries and limitations.
