Ashtanga Yoga
51 Metamorfoseos st, Halandri
Athens - Greece

Learn or improve Ashtanga Yoga (Korunta Yoga) from Shri K. Pattabhi Jois in a place rich of energy vibes. Attending the workshop in Greece is like returning to mythological richness. Apollo – the eternal Fire, Athos – the Earth and Poseidon – the Water! a fight of Giants within ourselves. It is also returning to the “love of knowledge” or “love of wisdom”, ancient discipline that originated in India, which raises the questions and develops the thinking about the world and human existence, codified by Patanjali in Yoga Sūtra (Yogasutra) during the second century BC.

This is also the famous “mantra” of the anchorites of Mount Athos, prayer of Jesus, prayer of the Pilgrim, that is to say the « sādhaka (Sanskrit: साधक) » of the one looking for himself. “Lord have mercy on me, Christ have mercy on me” in Greek “Kyrie Eleison”, that is “Lord, have mercy.” This constant repetition leads to peace of soul, a state in which the heart of the practitioner is in contact, in fusion with the Divine
