Students who complete their training are eligible to register with Yoga Alliance as Registered Yoga Teachers (RYT®).

YogaUnion has been delivering yoga teacher training courses (YTTCs), based on Ashtanga Vinyasa flow, an internationally accredited program with Yoga Alliance, for over a decade now.

Enchanted by their experiences in Bali and India, Ourania and Spyros, the founders of YogaUnion, decided to call Palairos their new yoga home. Bringing their experiences from their permanent home in Ubud (the cultural and yogic capital of Bali), all the way to their birthplace in Greece.

YogaUnion is currently running a 200-hour Vinyasa TTC, a unique and authentic course, open to those who want to become yoga teachers, or simply deepen their practice. YogaUnion shala is located on a cliff, surrounded by Greek olive trees and botanical herbs, overlooking the endless blue waters of the Ionian Sea - which makes this experience even more magical!

Based on thousands of hours of experience from all over the world, Ourania and Spyros carefully created and shaped the course to deliver the most educational, life-changing experience. The training is designed to challenge and develop individuals at all levels. This 200-hour course specializes in Vinyasa Ashtanga yoga, with a strong focus on the breath and how to combine it with movement.

With a focus on:

  • Building your confidence, skills, and profound knowledge
  • Comprehensive understanding of Vinyasa & Ashtanga practice
  • Asana analysis and adjustment theory
  • Methodology, theory, philosophy and anatomy/physiology
  • Insights into basic Ayurveda, nutrition, healing, rejuvenation in relation to yoga practice
  • The business aspect of yoga


Daily, mornings will begin with an hour of pranayama, meditation, and mantra chanting, followed by a Vinyasa flow class. Early afternoons are focused on deep learning of asanas with an emphasis on alignment, adjustments, and teaching methodology. You will dive into the theoretical part, studying yoga philosophy or anatomy (alternating days).

The afternoon lessons will be focused on restorative styles of yoga such as Yin, Hatha, and Nidra, and specialized workshops. Far from the traditional approach, you maintain a very high standard of teaching whilst making our classes extremely fun and interactive.
