The ancient city of Athens is brimming with rich history and natural beauty, making it an ideal place to deepen your understanding and appreciation of yoga on a teacher training retreat. Join a small group of like-minded practitioners in the peaceful town of Paiania and expand your knowledge on yoga ethics, science, philosophy and much more. Alongside an experienced instructor, yogis will plunge into restorative postures and chakra asana practice. Free time can be spent exploring the city's historical sites or simply soaking up the sun on one of the many renowned beaches.
