Yoga in Tinos
YOGA IN TINOS: Our Philosophy
Eleni is a certified yoga instructor living on the island of Tinos since 2013. She has completed 3 Yoga Teacher Trainings (200h & 300h & 365h) and has attended seminars of various Yoga Schools including Vinyasa Flow, restorative yoga, yin yoga, Ashtanga (Eddie & Jocelyne Stern), Bhakti, Yoga Swings (Aerial Yoga) and Yoga Kids (Rainbow Kids Yoga). She is also an Ayurvedic practitioner, aromatherapist and herbal therapist.
Born in Athens, Eleni graduated from the Faculty of Political Science and continued her studies in London in Management (MSc). She then worked for companies in the publishing and pharmaceutical sectors for several years.
A car accident in her early adulthood resulted in cervical disk herniations and excruciating pain. Living in the UK at the time, Eleni tried yoga for the first time and realized that the body itself can heal pain through exercise, individualized practice and the right alignment.
Eleni’s philosophy is to keep her yoga classes free of unnecessary complexity and to prepare her students’ bodies for meditation. She creates classes with playful sequences that give her students strength and joy. Her practice aims at unifying mind, body and soul.
YOGA IN TINOS OUTDOORS
Retreats and Workshops also take place outdoors, on beaches and locations of unique natural beauty. Recently, Eleni and her husband Giovanni created the handmade outdoor shala. In the area of Plakiani, just before Kardiani, they maintained a traditional terrace and shaped it properly, away from the modern distractions, so that everyone can be left to the healing nature of Tinos.
