bio

Yoga and Aerial Flow Yoga Teacher, Thai Massage Therapist, Physiotherapist

Born in Thessaloniki, raised in Katerini. From an early age, he was initiated into the world of sports, as his involvement with tennis in championship levels, lasted a decade. Always seeking this connection of body and soul, he decided to study at the Physiotherapy Department of AKMI Thessaloniki (2 years) and be specialized in various techniques of massage and alternative therapies, which aim at mental discharge and physical uplift. In this context, he attended seminars of various kinds of massage (Swedish Massage, Hot Stones, Indian Head, Hot Shells, Range joint movement, effects of hot and cold in the body).
Being a therapist for years and constantly searching new and effective therapies, he traveled to Thailand where he deepened in the technique of Therapeutic Thai Massage, attending the Old Medicine Hospital. Through his journey in the East, he came in contact for the first time with the world of Yoga, which magnetized him and decided to explore it in depth, as he discovered how the harmony of soul with the body is achieved, something he was looking for years. Thus, he attended the Yoga 200hr Teacher Training course and Aerial Flow Yoga at the Anahata Yoga Academy next to Elena Mouratidou, who remains up to this day his guide and mentor in this endless quest.
