Nina Had.

Integral Yoga Practices

Studio Owner

Beloveds,

  

I am, Constantina Hadjidemetriou, or Nina,  and my path to Yoga began on the Peruvian Andean mountains of Larapata and the Amazonian Jungle 6 years ago, where I got to experience Yoga through asana, primordial breathwork practices, shamanic ceremonies and Buddhist meditation. A life changing/ perception altering journey which brought me into my own personal spiritual quest and a deep realisation of my purpose. An inner calling to understand, expand, learn and share my knowledge to help join others into forming sustainable and conscious communities.

     As a graduate of Bsc in Social Sciences, I am both interested and fascinated by different cultures, their teachings, traditions and lineages that bring and carry wisdom through and for the evolution of  humanity. 

Another aspect of that curiosity and quest is the realisation of interconnectedness and symbiosis of those traditions both in the macro and microcosm. I strongly believe that the world is a living library and medicine chest if we only know how to connect and draw from the knowledge available. A big fan of expression, creativity and movement from a young age I would be involved in dancing and theatre groups, classes and shows.  Luckily I was always guided by well integrated Teachers in terms of serving both their Art,  their students and Soul, something which was imprinted in me and inspired mefrom an early age. 

As a temperament of constant change and movement, travel and expansion I find my path in the vast field of Integral Healing Practices, drawn from different traditions such as Indian Hatha Yoga and Philosophy, Shamanism, Yogic Tantra, Esoteric Studies, Yogic and Somatic Therapy. I bring my own blueprint into my Teaching Style, with the Intention to be of Service to the unique individual I work with, whether in the context of one on one or within a “group therapy” session.

Phedon Odysseos

Sivananda Hatha Yoga

Hello,

  

  My name is Phedon Odysseos. 
My Yoga journey began 5 years ago with curiosity and innocence where body was moved and treated in an intelligent way that our modern society was ignoring of. Not realizing that soon enough my relationship with Yoga would get stronger by immersing myself into the yoga philosophy and practices. 
   Being entitled of a Yoga Sadhaka in 2017, one whose life style is dedicated
to the path of Concious Evoloution,under the quidance of Dr. Ananda Balayogi Bhavanani , son of successor to Yogamaharishi Dr. Swami Gitananda Giri Guru Maharaj,and the direction of his wife and chief disciple, Yogacharini Meenakshi Devi Bhavanani. This included  a 6 month of intensive Rishiculture Ashtanga Yoga Sadhana study and practice at the ICYER, Tamil Nadu India. The teacher training was formed of 750hours of practical work, asanas, pranayama, kriyas, mudras and 750 hours of theory classes.
   Having my second training as a Yoga Instractor in 2019, I completed my 200-hour training on the path of Yoga and Vedanta in Amboli, India. This was under the quidance of Mani Raman and based on Sivananda Yoga tratition.


Other courses:


-Men Circles with Andrew Belinsky 2019
-Empowering intimacy with Ernest Morrow 2019
-Enlightened ways of being and meditation with Jerome Gross 2020

 This journey never stops where I am fascinated in ways if exploring of  inner and outer integration of the body as a whole and direct experience of it with reality. Yoga is a participation to life where movement, breath and body come together as the intimate relationship of Life itself.

Thank you,

Phedon

Hello

I'm Elena Tyania. My journey in Yoga begun in 2016. Alongside, I found my path to healing and personal improvement on my physical and inner generic health, breath and overall wellbeing through Reiki and meditation. Becoming a Reiki practitioner was the next step that came quite naturally.

   On July 2019, I decided to go deeper into yoga and attend my first training in hatha yoga so as to offer its benefits to the people around me.

Yoga early on 2020 and today I am a certified Hatha Yoga Teacher 200-hour from Yoga Alliance International .

Later on, I have followed a training in childrens's yoga. And today

I am certified Kids Yoga Teacher Training 50 hours by the organization

International Federation of Yoga Professionals IFYP.

  My experience in yoga with the world started by giving free sessions as part of my Karma Yoga practice to people dealing with stress and anxienty.  My intention is to hold space for these moments of peace reached by yoga asanas, breathing and meditation.

  In my recent and first collaboration and apprenticeship with my wonderful teacher Vicky Raja Nastu we offered yoga for energy, wellness, rejuvenation, held outdoors in nature.  Together with the world we spend beautiful moments of connection through yoga, breathing and meditation.

In current collaboration with Prana studio I offer hatha yoga for beginners where

we go through yoga exercises, pranayama techniques and guided relaxation.

I am truly grateful through the deepth of my heart for my path in yoga where I enthusiastically offer my best and enjoy every moment. My motivation is observing people coming in after their long day and leave the class with their smile and lights on! This is whathat makes me love more and more
