Andriana Corfu is an apartment complex located on Corfu, one of the most iconic Greek islands, sometimes called the Monaco of Greece. The unique mythical heritage, traditional charm, lush landscapes, breath-taking beaches, and emerald seas make it one of the most glamorous and sought-after destinations in Greece.
Andriana is nestled within beautifully maintained tropical gardens just 100 meters away from the golden beaches of the Ionian Sea. Students can spend their free time lounging in a breezy hammock, loungers, enjoy access to the neighboring hotel's pool, or hit the beach. The nearby beach of Aghios Georgios is sandy, long, and has crystal clear water. Further down, only 15 of walking, you can visit the famous beach from James Bond's movie "For your eyes only".
Andriana Corfu offers single, shared twin, and shared triple accommodation options.

Whether you are a beginner or a dedicated yoga practitioner looking to finally take a swing at teaching, the best time to take a yoga teacher training is now.
You will practice Vinyasa and Ashtanga in the mornings and a few Yin and Restorative yoga in the afternoons.
By the end of the course, you will know how to practice the Ashtanga yoga primary series by yourself, you will know how to create and teach Vinyasa classes and you will also learn how to teach classes based on the primary sequence of Ashtanga.
Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga prescribes a set sequence of postures linked by the breath. Through the practice of free-breathing, postures (asanas), and gazing point (drishti), one slowly gains control of the senses and mind. Over time, with repeated practice and devotion, it unfolds into a moving meditation, awakening a sense of subtle awareness. The mind becomes calmer, and slowly, we are able to clear away the clutter that gets in the way of clarity. When this happens, the light of yoga begins to shine. This is the transformational beauty of the practice. Through this practice, no matter your starting point, results will emerge.
Vinyasa Yoga, sometimes called Flow Yoga, is a contemporary style of yoga where students move freely from one pose to another using breath. It offers variety and freedom to choose from many poses, thus being unpredictable and creative. No two classes are alike. You will enjoy Vinyasa Yoga every other morning, classes designed in such a way that complements the theory they will cover.
At the end of the training and upon successful completion of the written and practical exam, you will be qualified to teach Ashtanga and Vinyasa yoga and will receive a 200-hour certification.
The yoga teacher training program is a practical and theoretical training course designed to help you become a confident practitioner and confident yoga teacher for all levels of students. You will have lots of opportunities to teach yoga to others. On day one, you will start by teaching yourself sun salutations, then one-on-one and as the course continues, you will progress to teaching larger groups.
By the end of the course, you will be able to teach mixed-level open yoga classes confidently.
You will learn sequencing principles in order to create your own Vinyasa Flow classes. You will look at:
There will be lots of practical teaching, planning, guidance and feedback on how to improve and enhance all these skills. You will observe, teach, and receive constructive feedback from your fellow students and teachers.
You will practice three Ashtanga and three Vinyasa classes per week. The Ashtanga classes will progress gradually, while the Vinyasa classes will go hand in hand with the theory which we will cover.
This is everyone's favorite class. Martin will not only teach you alignment and amazing hands-on adjustments but will also make you laugh. A lot. You will practice hands-on adjustments on your peers and receive feedback from them and from Martin. We will examine each of the main postures of the Ashtanga yoga primary sequence in terms of:
You will have workshops where we will break down complex postures like lotus, headstand, backbends, and chaturanga dandasana. Alpha Yoga School teaches baby pre-requisite steps that include preparation exercises, appropriate warm-ups, and requirements for the full posture. These classes are taught by Martin and will bring safety, awareness, and mindfulness to your practice and teaching. They are a game-changer.
In these classes, you will explore functional yoga anatomy and how to safely deepen your practice through your vehicle of exploration; the body. You will learn about the skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems through a comprehensive breakdown of the various regions of the body most applicable to the practice.
Through hands-on, practical application, you will investigate the different types of connective tissues, experience the movements of the joints, and connect with your fascial body. You will leave with a more profound understanding of both your own body as well as your students.
Yoga philosophy is interwoven throughout the course. In this module, you will explore what yoga really is; its meanings, significances, and practices. You will investigate the roots of the practice; the Vedic tradition, while simultaneously embracing the beauty of the present moment.
Together, you will travel back in time to explore Vedic culture, myths, and mantras, and then continue down the evolutionary paths of both classical and modern yoga practices. You will be introduced to the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, and the Bhagavad Gita, gaining both traditional and contemporary insight on their commentaries, while exploring the lifestyle and ethical guidelines of yoga.
Ayurveda, the Vedic science of health and longevity, is intrinsically linked to the practice of yoga. These two sister sciences developed together and are traditionally taught together. You will explore the foundations of this extraordinary holistic discipline while learning its basic principles of Self-healing that can be applied both on and off the mat.
Come as a practitioner, leave as a teacher.

Corfu is among the most beautiful and popular islands of Greece. It is located on the northwestern side of the country and has a strong historical connection with Europe. It is Corfu's cosmopolitan feeling combined with a special traditional character, amazing sea view, and yoga that can really create an ideal place for you to start your journey.
Apart from the wonderful beaches, another highlight of the island is the Old Town with the characteristic Venetian style, which is worth taking some time to enjoy. Corfu is easily combined with an escape to other close-by islands, such as Paxos and Antipaxos.
Also, the nearby village, Argyrades, which you can reach on foot from Andriana's, is lost in time. You can take your book and escape up the hill of Argyrades to enjoy your own quiet time, study or get to meet some real locals and check out the incredible views from above.
