Top choice

Shakti yoga studio is the perfect place to practice yoga: teachers trained in Iyengar yoga, fully dedicated, experienced, knowledgeable at many levels and at the same time very caring and attentive to every student's need. They speak fluent English. The place is sparkling clean, and the props as well. If you live or visiting Athens it is the most valuable gift you can offer yourself! Personally I am so grateful for I gained my health there, both in body and mind.

There is no other!

I was introduced to yoga and particularly Iyengar yoga at Shakti Yoga Studio. I was a very commited student for 4 years but had to stop because I moved to another part of Greece almost 2 years ago. I have been craving for Shakti Yoga Studio and my yoga lessons every day!!!! Haris and Christos are first and foremost Teachers with a capital T. I have learned so much and enjoyed every moment of my yoga practise.

At the end of every lesson all I felt was grateful for life and everything, and I think that says it all!!! The studio is always clean, spotless more like, the atmosphere is always friendly but you also get the sense of commitment and dedication to yoga and without the pretense I have seen elsewhere. Actually, after almost two years now I have yet to find a yoga place remotely close to the level of yoga practise I was used to. I would also like to add that on my last months of yoga practise at Shakti I was pregnant. I would never trust anyone else as much as I trusted Haris to guide me through yoga practise for pregnant women. It just added to the wonder and excitement of being pregnant all the while helping me feel centered, light of weight and light-hearted all the time! Thank you Christos ans Haris!

Deep, true yoga practice!

Shakti yoga studio is located in the heart of Athens in a quiet and wonderful neighbourhood. The studio is very well organised, clean and fully equiped with necessary props to assist every level of students.The place is welcoming, inspiring and full of good vibes just like the teachers Haris & Christos. Both of them are very well trained on Iyengar Yoga and spread their love and passion about yoga to their students. They teach with great enthusiasm the and assist every student with love and care.
A great place to meet your body mind and soul! Don't miss to visit and join a class!

Important role in the development of Iyengar yoga in Athens

I started Iyengar Yoga some 15 years ago in India and upon my return in Athens was impossible to find one Iyengar yoga studio here. Nobody had even heard the name of BKS Iyengar in Greece those days. Few years later, I was happy to finally discover this tiny Iyengar yoga studio, in one of Athens’ nicest spots by the hill of Metch.

It was run by Harris Lyroni, a very talented, centered and dedicated student /assistant, of inspiring teacher Christos Pavlou, one of the very few Iyengar-certified teachers here those days.
It is amazing how this small studio has expanded since then and what important role it has played in the development of Iyengar yoga in my country. Harris got her certification, became a well trained, precise and patient to the students teacher, with more and more students year by year, went to Pune, had the chance to see our Guruji in his last days and to learn from his son, Prasad. Further than teaching yoga in her very nice and friendly studio, Harris is constantly and passionately organizing also courses of sanskrit language, of Indian philosophy, free lectures on Ayurveda, on Indian music, on Advaita Vedanta, and… to make the long story short, has managed to create a real yogic oasis amidst a city suffering from a severe economic, cultural and psychological crisis.

An inspiring, wonderful place to practice yoga!!!!

My initiation to yoga came through Shakti and my experience there has been absolutely amazing!!! The teachers are excellent!!! Very experienced and committed!!! They really inspire the class. Their instructions are clear and precise , they are attentive to everyone in the class, and they correct postures in a way that is easy to understand and apply. As soon as you enter the physical space there is a positive aura that envelops you. It is a very well-cared for environment, clean and well-organised and with a warmth that soothes and comforts you. At the end of the class you feel calm, rejuvenated and absolutely content. I can't say enough about the place. I am really hooked!!! I recommend it very very highly!!!

I love Shakti

I have been going (on and off) since Shakti first openned. I really enjoy the style of yoga taught there, as breathing and focus are just as important to me as the physical aspects of yoga. More specificlly I found the yoga has been very helpfull for chronic issues I have had concerning my groin and left testicle and prostate, which, may I add, was not the reason I attended the classes in the first place. This is due to the wholistic apraoch that Haris uses for all the body etc and accuracy and standard that she guides and helps me acheive. As it turns out this has helped me realease some major blockages.
Not to harp on too much, Thank you H. and as I said I Love Shakti

Shakti studio is wonderful

This is the most welcoming studio that I have visited in Athens with a friendly, non-corporate atmosphere.

I gave 5 stars for the "It feels exclusive, like a 5 star hotel" despite the fact that it doesn't feel exclusive, in fact quite the opposite; it is entirely welcoming to all and everyone feels at home there. It is not trying to be exclusive or a 5-star hotel; it is completely unpretentious, yet extremely comfortable and clean. The focus is on the yoga, not the decor, even though it is very tastefully arranged.
The instructors are evidently completely dedicated to what they do and teach with seriousness, yet lightness of heart.
They instruct the Iyengar system with great loyalty, both on and off the mat and create a safe environment for all level of students.

Excellent professionalism & Attention to detail

Shakti Yoga Studio is the only school in the Greek capital that offers top quality classes in the Iyengar school of yoga. The teacher / owner Haris Lyroni is friendly, highly professional, carefully accommodating to each studebt's individual needs, and very experienced. The space is clean, welcoming, serene and central, and the classes scheduled in a way that satisfies people of all programs.
