About Yoga Skyros Academy
Have you heard of Yoga Skyros Academy, in Paiania, Greece? Well, it's the only place so close to the city centre of Athens and nature, where you can join and enjoy all-year-round programs of restoration, as well as be taught and get certified as a yoga teacher and/or as a yoga therapist, in a traditional and authentic way, alongside the Masters Dietmar and Carmen Hellmann.

Yoga Skyros respects your privacy and well-being. You will have the time and space for yourself in the beautiful and luxurious place and the areas around Paiania. Here, they aim for and achieve a high quality of the 3 T’s - teaching -therapy -and training, not only for the body but for the mind and spirit as well. As BKS Iyengar has stated ''Health is the state of complete harmony of the body, mind, and spirit."

Yoga Skyros is different; because Dietmar and Carmen teach all courses by themselves, which shows the amplitude of their knowledge, love, persistence, and inner power. Their approach to teaching and learning is ''baby steps''. 

They are here to support you along the way, with patience and love and as Carmen says ''The body will always adapt to the demand, we put on it'', so there is no need to rush or doubt the process. Additionally, because the quality is above quantity, and each class has a maximum of 10 students, each individual gets to develop a traditional and authentic master to student relationship, where they are connected for life no matter how many miles apart.

Yoga Skyros Academy strives to share ancient knowledge, practices, and light within the modern world. You can all heal yourself and one another. Join Yoga Skyros Academy and feel the difference for yourself.
