Alexia was introduced to yoga in 1998, practicing Satyananda yoga for a year. From then on, yoga became part of her daily life. Yoga brought many positive changes in her life, body and mind after which she decided to share her knowledge with those around her. In 2004 Alexia founded the yoga centre: “σωμαyoga” (somayoga: soma = body).
To deepen her yoga practice and her internal search, Alexia travelled to India in 2005, met many teachers and studied yoga at Shivananda Centre in Kerala. She considers the most exciting ‘school’ is life itself and believes it’s important to always be a student of life. Alexia continues, with great enthusiasm, her study around yoga and self-awareness – taking part in workshops, lectures and classes all over the world and in Greece.
Her classes are focused on respecting the freedom and personal experience of each student, and to teach them to take care of their body, since ‘it’s the only place we have to live in’, helping them to discover their own path to personal truth and self-awareness while focusing on their safety. Alexia teaches hatha yoga, yoga for pregnant women, kids yoga and, following her own experience with her own baby, baby & toddler yoga – She has studied with Birthlight, Yogabeez International and Greville Kids Yoga.
Her professional life since then includes personal training and yoga teaching to adults and children groups, but also individually. She is teaching in companies, private school, outdoor in nature, to pregnant women,as well as to parents together with their baby or/and toddler . Alexia continues with great enthusiasm, her study around yoga and mindfulness, taking part in workshops, lectures and classes in Greece and all over the world
