In the charming village of Lavrio in Athens, practitioners can dive into the mother of all yoga styles: Hatha yoga. Alongside an experienced instructor, you’ll explore the various aspects of yoga, such as anatomy, philosophy, alignment, ethics and much more. Classes are small and intimate, offering one-on-one guidance and key teaching and communication techniques. This is also a great opportunity to learn about yoga therapy and its powerful effect on the mind and body.
