Meet the instructor
Alexia – Alexia Siouti is a Yoga Alliance certified teacher. She has completed numerous teacher training programs and workshops in various forms of yoga with worldwide respected teachers.
She has been trained especially in yoga therapy as well as in other forms of body-mind therapy systems (Feldenkrais, Body mind centering, Pilates). In addition, she has completed a training course in spine works.
Her interest for Eastern thought and philosophies begins during her studies of Greek Philology at National and Kapodistrian University of Athens.
Due to her longtime professional experience in dance she has a deep knowledge of anatomy and of the functions of the human body. In addition, she feels respect for the connection between body and mind and the way they interact through practice.
Over the last decade she has focused her practice and teaching on Ashtanga yoga and for the last five years she runs her own Ashtanga Yoga Shala in the center of Athens, Okto Yoga Shala Athens.
She teaches focusing on breath for the concentration of the mind and the expansion of vital energy. She also teaches focusing on alignment for the body therapy as well as on relaxation and the development of positive attitude towards life. She believes that yoga is a way experiencing life more consciously, healthily, peacefully and at the same time bringing harmony between the inner self and the world.
Our mornings will begin with a warm welcome of the day with our Ashtanga yoga practice to energize our body and mind.
We will continue our afternoons with gentle practices, breathing exercises and deep relaxation. In our free time we will trek, relax and discover the beautiful place…
Practicing yoga, morning and afternoon, is designed to provide participants with tools to expand their awareness, improve their relationship with the body, feel and care for it, release restrictive patterns in movement and in the way they do. And in a methodical, natural way to create the changes needed to bring more balance, peace and joy to life.
The purpose of Okto Yoga Shala retreats is to inspire and stimulate a better quality of life and a more harmonious connection with the Self and the people around us.
“My personal belief is that we are all blessed and capable of self-healing and happiness. The practice of yoga and all the esoteric practices are tools that power and nourish us for this personal transformation journey. ”
