The first yoga school on Paros, run by teacher Oona Giesen.
Yoga school also for hire for other teachers.
Hatha yoga, based on the system of mr. Iyengar, but with a softer aproach.
Teacher Oona Giesen
started with Iyengar Yoga about 40 years ago, around 1973, when she was eight years old. She was trained by Agnes Hillen, Margriet Post, Victor van Kooten and, most of all, by her mother Jeanne Buntinx. All these yoga teachers were all trained personally by mr Iyengar.
Oona started teaching Iyengar based Hatha Yoga 20 years ago, in her mothers yoga school in Amsterdam/The Netherlands, and in her own yoga school on the island Paros in Greece. Although she has a slightly softer approach, you can feel the influences of Iyengar in her classes. Because of her own experience after a broken spine due to a car accident, she knows very well how to help with back problems.
Yoga helps you to be in better contact with your body. Yoga helps you, to find more balance, more strength, and more flexibility. Yoga helps to calm down the nerves, it brings down the blood pressure and the heart beat. Therefor it is extremely helpful in this modern times with a lot of external pressure and competition. It can help to reduce stress related simptoms such as headach, stomach problems, sleeping problems and so on. Because of the importance of the alignment and the spine in many yoga exercises, it is also very helpful against back pain. You don't need to be 'super-fit' to do yoga. Everybody has stronger and weaker parts in his body. By paying a lot of attention to this while doing the yoga-poses, and by continuing this attention throughout the day, you will reach a better balance.
