Abhaya Yoga Makes us STRONG & FEARLESS!

November 2018 – February 2019

We build a strong trunk for our yoga and meditation practice. Every weekend we focus on a new Asana category (backbends, inversions, etc.) and practice for: Strong Body, Clear Mind, Open Heart. Ring by ring, we discover the five sheaths of our existence, the Five Koshas. From the center outwardly we grow, aligning Body-Mind-Heart.

Here is what our students say

om "Abhaya Yoga Vivi Letsou TT is a high quality international standards Teacher Training, and I was very lucky it was hosted at NYSY studios in Athens. The TT covered my immediate and long term needs as a Yoga Teacher so to acquire the knowledge, skills, abilities, experience and confidence needed to bring excellence in my teaching for the practitioners in Greece and worldwide.

It offered me insights into the Yoga philosophy and practice which are extremely important, therapeutic and life-saving in this difficult time of the crisis. This was possible by bringing alignment, therapy, strength, balance, energy and light to my body, mind and soul. As such, I was offered a complete analysis of the ways Yoga works via Yoga philosophy and asanas, as well as mantras, meditation and other practices such as Yoga Nidra, Kirtan etc. These threads and their interconnection were successfully delivered in full awareness by Vivi Letsou, and communicated to us verbally, by educational materials, direct practice, and also expert inidivdual observation and correction.

In this way, I was able to achieve my targets for a high quality expertise in teaching Yoga with love, awareness and action, also reflected on my personal and professional life. Besides the TT itself, the amazing experience journey and heart connection as well as the help and support from the wonderful NYSY team and Abhaya Yoga Kula were beyond any expectations!!"

Οι αλλαγές στη ζωή τους γίνονται ζωντανό παράδειγμα και ευκαιρία, για αλλαγές στη ζωή μου...."
