7 days - session III: Meditation, Pranayama, and Ayurveda


Impermanence is the rule in the Universe. Everything is always changing! Learn how to use meditation in this changing environment. It is must-have knowledge to be able to establish harmony in your daily life.


Learn the essential breathing techniques (Pranayama) to be able to use it in the daily life and for different purposes.


The words “Ayur” and “Veda” mean literally the science of life. Ayurveda is here to balance all imbalances in the physical body, while Yoga is here to stop all movement of the mental body. Ayurveda recognizes the world in terms of elements, functions, and qualities. Any disorder is just the result of an imbalance of the biological condition on a physical or emotional level.

Ayurveda asserts that the human body is a microcosm that follows the law of the Universe-macrocosm. It is only a vague introduction to let you know about the amalgamation of yoga and Ayurveda in enchanting surrounding.

Why choose Yoga Skyros Academy?

Have you heard of Yoga Skyros Academy, in Paiania, Greece? Well, it's the only place so close to the city center of Athens and nature, where you can join and enjoy all-year-round programs of restoration, as well as be taught and get certified as a yoga teacher and/or as a yoga therapist, in a traditional and authentic way, alongside the Masters Dietmar and Carmen Hellmann.

Yoga Skyros respects your privacy and well-being. You will have the time and space for yourself in the beautiful and luxurious place and the areas around Paiania. Here, they aim for and achieve a high quality of the 3 T’s - teaching -therapy -training, not only for the body but for the mind and spirit as well. As BKS Iyengar has stated ''Health is the state of complete harmony of the body, mind, and spirit."

Yoga Skyros is different; because Dietmar and Carmen teach all courses by themselves, which shows the amplitude of their knowledge, love, persistence, and inner power. Their approach to teaching and learning is ''baby steps''.

They are here to support you along the way, with patience and love and as Carmen says ''The body will always adapt to the demand, we put on it'', so there is no need to rush or doubt the process. Additionally, because the quality is above quantity, and each class has a maximum of 10 students, each individual gets to develop a traditional and authentic master to student relationship, where they are connected for life no matter how many miles apart.

Yoga Skyros Academy strives to share the ancient knowledge, practices, and light within the modern world. You can all heal yourself and one another. Join Yoga Skyros Academy and feel the difference for yourself.
