Eleftheria Lagoudaki


Eleftheria Lagoudaki got to know Ashtanga Yoga in 2000 and became a practitioner ever since. On September 2002 she founded the first Shala in Athens to exclusively teach the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga method.

She finds great joy in working with the practitioners towards a pleasant, safe and steady practice, freeing Ashtanga from dogmatic and rigid beliefs. Her instructing during classes is at the same time precise, well researched and pleasant.

What is Ashtanga Yoga

During this practice, a certain sequence of positions is executed along with deep, even breaths and focus of the eyes on certain points. Every movement or position is combined with an inhalation or an exhalation. The combination of the above with a nice flow gradually has the following results: Every body muscle gets exercise, the bone position is rearranged, the brain and the cells get more oxygen, blood circulation is boosted. This way, we gradually obtain strength, flexibility, endurance and a better posture.
