A short drive west from Athens, the home is next to the famed town of Diakopto within the municipality of Agio.

The 5 bedroom/5 bathroom home is surrounded by lush greenery, and breathtaking mountain + sea views, making it a wonderful choice for retreats and yoga groups.

Program

Yoga and More School hosts teacher trainings since 2018 in order for the students to be able to study the yogic field, create a general commitment to the yogic path without dogmatic attachments and create the ability to apply on the mat and off the mat, in the real world, the philosophy of a yoga practitioner, as well as of a scholar who seeks the eternal truths.

This is a Vinyasa based training, following modern methods from science, as well as from intuition and love teachings. Yoga and More are not following dogmas, nor they hold theocratic ideas about the body, the mind, and the energy.
