…in the yoga class: twice a week, 9 months a year, for the past 10 years (a solid and non-negotiable commitment with but a handful of absences). Not once have I been bored, when I'm supposed to get bored so easily!
With Antaratma always there to show me (with words, but mostly by example) all I want (or don't want) to see about myself and my life, with infinite patience, acceptance and unconditional love (but not without limits). He has seen me at my best and at my worst;
I’ve experienced both delirious laughter and fuming anger during his classes. And I feel so lucky and grateful that we happened(?) to meet and walk along this path together…
Alexandra is an inspired and inspiring instructor of yoga; she provides sophisticated advice, consistent with the principles of yoga; very helpful especially to professionals who seek to regain the physical and spiritual equilibrium needed in today's complex business environment; her vibrant personality reflects in her work.
I feel very lucky to have her as my yoga instructor and really think that her studio will be for many of us a place to find harmony and inner peace!
Through my yoga lessons with Alexandra, I started being aware of and getting to know my body and my breath, I started to "see" and feel them more clearly than ever. Without pressuring my body, feeling discouraged, disappointed or stressed, and through a lot of fun and work, I saw my body undergoing changes, feeling light and doing things that I never thought it would. I felt my breath in places that I never would have imagined and by observing it I was able to find calm and peace, I felt myself getting healed. Through my teacher's guidance, I fell in love with yoga and I was able to change the way I see myself and life. I feel very lucky to have gotten to know yoga through an approach that has the ability to truly transform the body and soul.
One of the most authentic and truthful teachers I follow, Antaratma Thodoris Chiotis teaches with loyalty and deep knowledge all the 8 limbs of Yoga. His attentiveness to all his students is remarkable, his presence inspiring in every single class and his spirituality comes from his open heart.
Asanas and pranayama are taught with deep knowledge of the physical body, meditation and relaxation are an experience with Antaratma and moreover his kirtan sessions connect his students with the deepest essence of the divine.
I feel grateful to study next to such a humble, generous and charismatic teacher as Antaratma.
Alexandra is an attuned, inspired and expert teacher of yoga, who beyond teaching, lives and embodies what she teaches. Her energy holds a welcoming, compassionate, serene space for one to experience the mind-body-awareness reality.
She will guide and support you to face the blocks along the way, and move beyond your current boundaries. Furthermore, her sincerity, integrity, gentleness, spontaneous laughter and sure guidance make Alexandra an absolute delight as a person and professional. My husband and I had weekly sessions with Alexandra during our stay in Greece. We are truly grateful to her, and miss her loving presence, and wish her continued light and love on her path.
With Alexandra's tuition, you learn, you make a progress and you receive the positive energy that she emits. She complements the class with her humor and smile and you have the feeling that you have a person who follows you closely and embraces you in your endeavor. We are confident that we are improving physically and mentally.
