Μy story

As soon I started waking us an infant I first danced. I was moving in disco rhythms until 12 years old.

When I was 12 I enrolled in a volleyball team and I was playing volleyball in high level teams in Greece for many years back then.

There I felt that movement should become a way of life for me. So at the age of 18 I studied Physical Education at the University of Athens. for 4 years.

While I was in the University I started teaching volleyball and did that for many years after, since I gained a bachelor as a coach for A category national teams. In 2001 I felt that I also needed to have my own work as a professional and I also gained a Personal Trainer and Nutrition and Wellness Consultant diploma. So back then I opened a business of my own and started to teach adults so they become stronger and healthier.

In the same time I was working in a café in south Crete. My life was back then exhausting and the emotional pressure was over my limits cause of bad relations. In 2005 a couple of Scandinavians came to me in South Crete and offered to teach me a yoga class. I did yoga for the first time and I felt an emotional paradise where everything stopped and I simply felt happy, a nirvana of mind.

As soon as I came in Chania I ordered DVD from Europe and started studding and using the asanas of Yoga in the Personal Training classes. Back then except the emotional pressure, I was also suffering from stomach disorders which where cured with "cobra" asanas and proper nutrition.

In 2008 I found my Yoga Teacher in Athens " Linda Kapetaniou" and she trained me to become a "Yoga Master" 500 RYT Yoga Alliance accredit. From back then I established "Green Yoga" and Yoga become a way of life and a profession. Through Yoga I become calm, learned to control the emotional stress. In 2014 I started to teach Sup Yoga with sequences, that I invented for the first time in Crete.

In 2016 my health had trouble again and my Yoga profession was in crisis. I had for once again in my life to find a way to save my profession and my hole life. So I studied Massage and Sujok in Crete with a physiotherapist.

Massage was now part of my life and it supplement my work treating people with various problems. I was alone and treatments become a way of a fulfilling life and a reason to carry on a happy existence.

The relation between

Body and mind

The ancient Greeks talk about it, imprinting the theory that both are necessary for the health and train their body with the same fervor that they educate their mind .
