Shakti Yoga Studio
Inspired by the ancient art and philosophy of yoga, two of the few certified Iyengar yoga teachers in Greece created Shakti – the Sanskrit term for female energy – in the picturesque Mets neighbourhood. The immaculate studio is fully equipped and welcomes international students, providing crystal-clear instruction in a range of languages when required. Renowned lead teacher Haris explains that, “The practice of Iyengar yoga focusses particularly on three aspects: correct body alignment, sequencing and timing.” The rigorous lessons aim to establish a firm foundation of the asana (physical practice) so students can benefit from pranayama (breathing techniques), which foster a feeling of energy and calmness. Their timetable includes classes at a range of levels, as well as a restorative Friday night class for winding down into the weekend.
