my name is Apinaya
"yoga for me is a state of mind and a whole lifestyle thats why i teach in a way that includes the heart, the mind, the soul as well as the physical body"
i am a alternative healer and teacher of the new consciousness and a qualified shivananda yoga teacher , as well i have been studing with iyengar yoga teachers for quite some time. i started my own yoga practise more than 25 years ago and i teach now more than 15 years here on Crete where i have lived the last 30years. i have a yoga and healing retreat center OM sHNATI in the mountain village of Amiras
( Ano Viannos ) on the south east side of the island.
for many years i have been practicing and teaching usui reiki as a reiki master plus other energy healing treatments and massages.
i have spent many winters in india deepening my practice studing with iyengar & sivananda yoga teachers . lately i stayed in an ashram called upanisha ananda madir under the guidance of atmaji , wich is an enlightenend master of modern times , where i learned various pranayama and meditation technics ( Bairova) as well as a yoga that goes much further then the physical excercise .
now i am very happy to share my experience with you.
the groups we hold in the center are small (6-10 pers.) there are also reiki seminars , satsangs , various kinds of massage (indian head massage, shiatsu, special back massage…..), as well as cretan herbal medicine, which you can learn about in a workshop.
i hope to see you soon in one of the retreats or for a yoga holiday,
may love and light be with you,
