THE TEACHER

My love and curiosity for human movement and anatomy was initially expressed when I decided to become a physiotherapist. My journey in the wonderful world of affection and love towards the human body started in 2009, when I graduated from the Technical Institute of Physiotherapy of Thessaloniki, Greece. After working as an associate in a Physiotherapy Centre until 2015, I gained thorough experience in dealing with patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain, spinal cord problems and injuries, soft tissue injuries and pelvic floor rehabilitation.

My thirst for constant personal and educational development was the reason I explored several techniques and methods of rehab. This knowledge led me into approaching the human body and mind in a holistic way. That’s when Yoga came into my life!

My first contact with Yoga was In 2015 when I completed a teacher's training at Grafts, Hellas. The experience was life changing and my desire to deepen my knowledge led me into continuing my studies and in 2016 I became a certified Yoga Teacher after completing the 200h course from YogaWorks.  Yoga transformed my therapeutic skills, providing the quality needed in order to connect all the different pieces that synthesize each person’s uniqueness. In 2019, YogaWorks welcomed me in the teachers' team as an Injury Management Specialist.

After years of practicing this interdisciplinary approach, I started developing my own therapeutic programs for the prevention and treatment of chronic musculoskeletal pain that combine traditional physiotherapy methods and Yoga.
