Driving directions from the airport

From the airport take the motorway in the direction of "Arrecife"

Take the first exit to "Playa Honda"

At the first mini roundabout take the second exit and keep straight parallel to the motorway

At the next big roundabout take the third exit under the motorway

Go straight over the next roundabout and follow the signs to "San Bartolomé"

After passing through “San Bartolomé” you come to a roundabout, on the other side of which is the tall white “Monumento del Campesino” (one of the first works of Cesar Manrique showing clearly the influence of Picasso and Cubism). Take the second exit to “Tinajo and Mozaga”

At the next roundabout take the 2nd exit to "Tinajo”

Pass through the village of “Tao” ,

And then through the village of “Tiagua”

Here you will find an excellent Supermarket on your right

As you exit the village of “Tiagua” keep left towards “Mancha Blanca” and “Timanfaya”

“%La Vegueta” is the next village

1 kilometer further you will arrive at the crossroads in the village of “La Vegueta”

You will see a small football pitch on your left and a local shop with a yellow letter box on your right

After 400 meters on your right there is a large very pink house set back from the road. After 20 meters, where the road starts to go down slightly, turn left into “Camino las Huertitas” – the sign is not very visible

After another 400 meters just before the white wall of the first house on this road turn right where you see an “Amatista” sign with an arrow on it (If you miss that turn you will end up in a Cul-de-sac)

Follow the road up, and around to the left another 500 meters. On your left before the end of this road you will see first the number 9 and shortly afterwards the number 11 with the entrance sign for Villa Amatista. If you go around another corner you have come too far.

    "Amazing training, top standard level."

    "Irana has a magical way of teaching supported by her angelic team. I felt at home and every day I was excited to start becoming more and more aware of my body and soul getting deeply in each pose. "

    "My time with Irana at the shala really was life changing for me. She is an exceptional teacher with so much knowledge and experience that you never want to leave. Her holistic approach to yoga suits everyone, no matter previous experience.I left Paros after the 3 week course with a whole different mindset than when I came. If you want to change anything in your life or become the best version of yourself I can highly recommend doing the 200h transformational hatha yoga course. The variety of classes everyday was exceptional and the food is out of this world! Greek vegetarian food made me want to learn how to cook properly when I get home :-) Thank you a million times Irana- you are a star" website, edited

  • Review by Patrizia from Florida, U.S.A.

    "When I choose Paros Yoga Shalla I didn't know what to expect other then a beautiful island in Greece , but I have to say that my choice was an excellent one , from the accommodation to the amazing food and Irana was the cherry on top of the cake :)) she has wisdom and great knowledge on yoga . I attend many workshops but her was my best so far , I got so much from her in more details .The transformation yoga program included the philosophy and science of the Buddhism culture, Chanty and meditation is part of the program ( it was not my favorite parts just from my personal view ) .Have to say though that everything's was done professionally well organized and with good structure, even in the small changes she made to accommodate the intense course . She is very passionate as a teacher in every aspect and details , she expect the same excellence from us, I like this quality in her . I cannot say nothing negative about my experience, she is my guru and I greatly respect her."

    "I undertook my 200-hour yoga teacher training here. I had the most incredible experience during my three weeks. The studio is so peaceful and has such a great energy. I felt calm and at ease as soon as I walked in. The view from the yoga shala is absolutely breathtaking. I loved the variety of classes and teachers which means that there is something for everyone, seasoned yogis or complete beginners! Irana is so knowledgeable, patient, and generous with her teaching. The team running the studio is so friendly and really cares about their students, which creates such a welcoming and positive environment. I would recommend this wonderful place to everyone!"

  • Review by Haley from Rhode Island, France

    "The title "Transformational Yoga Teacher Training" truly sums up the program. The teacher training changed my life. I am grateful to have met such wonderful people in a beautiful place. The teachers are the most talented and compassionate yogis I've met. They inspired me to deepen my practice and embrace yoga as a way of life. They always made sure we were happy, and they genuinely wanted us to learn and grow throughout the training.The accommodations were perfect - clean, comfortable, spacious, and conveniently located at a 5-10 minute walk from the Yoga Shala. The food was out of this world! I still dream about the lovely dishes that we ate. The chef is a genius.The yoga classes were phenomenal. They varied from Vinyasa, Yin, Transformational, Aerial, and more. I was never bored. The studio gives off peaceful vibes. Every time I walked into the Shala, I felt happy and relaxed. It is perched on top of a hill, so glass windows overlook a breathtaking view of mountains and sea.The Yoga Teacher Training was one of the best things that happened to me. I wish I lived in Paros so I could go to the Yoga Shala every day."

    "I've done yoga in many different places and I consider Yoga Shala to be the best of them. The atmosphere is great and the level of teaching is extraordinary. I've never experienced a state of bigger relaxation, fulfillment, and general well-being after a class. It was amazing! I've done four different classes and they were all special. I wish I lived closer. I will definitely come back when I'm in Paros."

  • Review by Nikoleta from Vienna, Austria

    "It was the first time for me practicing yoga 2-3 times a day. Previously to my stay I was a little anxious if I can make it but Irana and her assistant Lucy offered a very well-balanced yoga schedule that consists of dynamic flow classes, meditation, relaxing yoga,etc. "

    "So waking up in the morning for a yoga class and coming back in the evening was not perceived as a "to do" but something really pleasant! Irana and her assistant took enough time for everyone during the practice and gave me important tips on how to improve my practice. "

    "Naoussa is not that big, so walking from the centre to the studio took only about 15 minutes. Can recommend Yoga Shala Paros to everyone, from beginner to advanced practitioners. Looking forward to go back to beautiful Naoussa and Yoga Shala Paros!"

  • Review by Lenore from Houston, Texas

    "Peaceful studio with experienced teachers that provide an environment for you to go deeper into your practice. Each and every class is unique and I learned something new every time I was in the studio. There is a class everyday to suit what your body is craving, even the meditations and dance sessions. The aerial yoga on Saturdays is a challenging and uplifting experience, I fell in love with flying.The food for the course was simply divine, fresh ingredients and the creativity of the meals was amazing!The accommodations were very comfortable and well located. It was a short walk to the yoga shala, the beach, and to town. The view of the sea was beautiful and I loved waking up in the morning and doing my practice looking out the window and breathing the fresh sea air.For the entire three weeks, every need was taken care of so that I was able to concentrate on absorbing the yoga and lessons."

  • Review by a traveller from London, UK

    "Since I was a complete beginner I was looking for a perfect introduction to yoga. I did a lot of research on the internet and finally came across Irana's yoga shala. It had excellent reviews so I decided to sign up for the Integral Yoga Purification Program with her. After one week of yoga lessons I feel very happy that I followed the recommendations. Irana is a great teacher and I am sure this yoga experience will have a sustainable effect on my health and overall well-being. Thank you, Irana."

  • Review by Amanda from Athens, Greece

    "Wow! Irana is an exceptional teacher. Her approach is so balanced and respectful, embodying all the elements of yoga. Irana herself is not only an inspiration but also a woman with deep and grounded philosophies of what it means to be human and to exist in the modern world. I experienced both precision of alignment and the freedom of flow at a level where my limits were not compromised at all, but where every potential could be reached.The aerial yoga is exhilarating, strengthening and wonderfully playful and liberating. Irana is slow and careful in her teaching methods and respectful of personal limitations, making the class accessible to everyone who still believes in safe, controlled fun."

    "As for the studio, the simplicity of light, subtle,calming aroma and coolness, in a space which is large, spotlessly clean and with the most amazing view of the sea and sky, go to make the whole experience invigorating and cleansing. Irana's attention to detail leaves absolutely nothing to be desired- from her sensitive choice of music to the lemon and ginger water she generously offers. I felt so light and full of joy on leaving the Shala and will be sure to go back. Thank you Irana."

She has different programs that can cover the needs of every person - from the unskilled trainee to the advanced yoga trainee. Furthermore she alternates the sessions in order to keep the level of interest high.
