It is a place of exceptional natural beauty, with gorgeous outdoor yoga halls, amongst the trees and sounds of nature. The rooms are just a breath away from gorgeous sand beaches with crystal clear waters. The whole environment is ideal for mind-body-spirit practices, for learning, resting and rejuvenation. Room options include single room, double room, triple room, and a beach hut in a camping site a few minutes walk from Okreblue.

Through Athens Yogas teacher training program, you will learn how to deconstruct advanced poses into their key challenging elements, and design an optimal strategy for each part while always keeping in mind the different body types of your students. This will enable you to teach amazing mixed-level classes, where every student will experience progress, regardless of their level of practice. You will gain more and more confidence as a teacher, leaving the training enthusiastic and ready to take your students to the next level! Also, the hours of study count towards continuing Yoga Alliance education.

Athens Yoga program key elements

Athen Yogas teacher training program is guided by two key elements: safe alignment within poses and transitions and effective and efficient pose sequence. Safe alignment, effective sequences and the use of props will make natarajasana, visvamitrasana, mayurasana, adho mukha vrksasana press-ups, drop-backs, eka pada galavasana, vrischcikasana, pincha mayurasana with one-arm variations and other postures and transitions more accessible and fun. You will improve your vision, and assessment about how your students need to refine their existing poses, and what variation of a pose they are ready for.

    "I don't know how to express the overwhelming gratitude I feel because, except for the basic training I feel that I have received so much "food" for the future!! Everything begins from now on! I feel Athens Yoga as a true family that embraced me right from the start, which is due to the environment that Maja creates and of course that is trasmitted to the rest of the center"

    "Being at the teacher training program is a very unique experience, more of a life-training. Obligations and demands only help build faith, moulding a stronger character. Faith grows stronger in any direction that the student choses"

    "A unique and special experience for your body and mind which fills you with confidence regarding your own possibilities. The teachers were characterized by their responsibility and their special ability to transmit knowledge. A very special journey into the inner world."

  • Review by Irida Mathe

    "A yoga teacher training is not only about learning how to teach. Apart from the complete knowledge on the topic, it is an invitation to self discovery. The training at Athens Yoga highlights this holistic approach about what is yoga, what is to teach yoga and to practice, not only ina class but in your life also"

  • Review by Wanda Pierri

    "I wanted to delve deeper into the “art” of yoga and not only got my wish but also found a whole new world opening up before me! Maja is a brilliant teacher and a true inspiration, a source of deep knowledge and an example to aspire to. A beautiful balance of body and mind, movement and breath, earth and soul! And together with the rest of the team of exceptional teachers they offer a first-rate and well-rounded programme that focuses on all the necessary aspects; the practice of yoga (asanas), philosophy, lesson planning and classroom skills, self-development, anatomy, alignment and how to practice and teach both effectively and safely (extremely important and unfortunately often underestimated and overlooked). I definitely recommend this teachers training course to anyone who wishes to grow his/her yoga practice and dive into this magical world, even if they are not quite sure if they want to make the leap towards teaching or not. A life-enhancing (if not downright life-changing) experience! "

  • Review by Tina Tsaleza

    ""I signed up for this teacher training in order to get to know more about the rich tradition of yoga. The environment at Athens Yoga, the program itself and the teachers' approach all exceeded my expectations. Everyone's offer of knowledge, the educational material we received as well as all the guidance was only the beginning. I continue learning every day through my practice and the tools we were given during the teacher training and through the community of teachers and students. The most important gift of this training is perhaps the confidence and faith in our power. Teaching comes so early in this training that it leaves no room for doubt. We started teaching from the very first steps of the training which filled me with confidence and put me in the mood for more knowledge and experience. The teacher training is an invaluable experience whichever reasons initially bring you to it"
