Marianna has been taking ballet and contemporary dance lessons since she was 8. She studied dance professionally while simultaneously studying linguistics and obtaining a PhD in dialectology from Aegean University.
In 2009 she started teaching ballet and contemporary dance, but her restless spirit and her inner will to combine physical strength with internal peace and balance guided her to the path of yoga. She started practicing yoga daily and decided to train as a yoga teacher. She has completed Hatha Yoga Teacher Training 200h and 500h with Michel Filinis (Yoga Alliance Certification) and has been teaching yoga since 2011.
Marianna has also attended a Yoga Swing Workshop with Alexandra Rossopoulou, a Pre-natal Yoga Teacher Training by Birthlight and a Kids Yoga Teacher Training with Christina Matsi. Additionally, she has completed a Thai Yoga Massage Seminar and has been offering massage sessions since.
As the practice of yoga has led her to a more profound path of spiritual evolution and way of living, she decided to embrace spiritual healing by obtaining the Master Degree of the Usui Reiki System.
She continues being a student herself and she is enriching her experience daily through her personal practice and the guidance of great teachers. She offers yoga to her students with the aim of helping them discover their own path and bring peace to their body, mind and soul.
Today, she teaches hatha/ vinyasa flow yoga and kids yoga at several studios and gyms in Athens, and offers private lessons as well.
