Hi there! My name is Vivien, and I am a Yoga Alliance UK registered Vinyasa Yoga teacher.
I am a proud Greek mama of two stinky cute boys, a Montessori trained teacher, a foodie and nature lover. Twinkly lights, fireworks and the smell of jasmine rocks my world! I am deeply in love with my family, kids, life, animals, actually all living things, roller-coasters, fairy stories, arts & crafts, going on forest adventures with my kids and anything and everyone that gets me moving and laughing out loud!
I am not bendy by nature. I have always been a tomboy. Running, swimming, skiing and playing tennis were my favorite sports when I was younger. Fifteen years ago, while living in London, I started to seriously practice yoga. Through my consistent yoga practice, I managed to wake up and extend my short, tight muscles. I have to work double hard to be able to touch my toes. Wait, what? Yes, really! However, I am in peace with my body now, my mind is not constantly screaming “you must get yourself in such and such asana”. I have learned to just go with the flow. Listen to my body, do the best I can and be happy when enough is enough.
Yoga gives me clarity. It allows me to stop and live, breath by breath. It gives me control when I feel I have none.
