Having gained a great experience at the Hospitality sector and having worked in distinguished Hotels and Restaurants – a creative but really tentative field – Dimitris Gkioulos decides to find an alternative way out of this tension without rejecting his hitherto professional career.
He attends his first Yoga class with Zoi Zioga, a well-established Yoga Instructor in the city of Thessaloniki and gets really amazed by the intensity level of this kind of working out. It all started by curiosity! He initiates his first intensive Training Program at the MP Balatsinos School in Thessaloniki having a more creative and personal contact with Yoga. At the same time, he attends classes and seminars by well-known instructors across Greece, gaining experience and knowledge. His acquaintance with Maria Dempela, a certified yoga instructor in Yogaworks, will make him understand that Yoga is not just an exercise but through an entire philosophy, it is a way of living. His constant desire for improvement, will lead him to find a more “comprehensive training way”.
After having conducted a great research at this topic, he entered and successfully completed a 200hr Training at the educational Yin Yang Yoga school of Dimitris Karagiorgos at Lagonissi, Athens. A year later he entered and successfully completed one more 200hr Teacher Training at BFS Academy Greece with Ioanna Koliakoudaki and Panos Kontogiorfos in Athens.
At the same time he started working in Yoga premises and gyms in Chania, having the desire to transmit his personal experiences to other people. His personal “motto” is that the inner development of each and every one of us, does not only result in improving our own Selves but also the whole of our society. Besides that yoga means pleasure!
Now he encourages, more and more people to join, experience and benefit from the unique path of Yoga
