7 days: Asanas and Chakras


Teachings at Yoga Skyros Academy are based on the concept of small classes, high quality teaching, better learning and understanding, and better connection to your consciousness and inner peace in a safe and healthy environment. The following are just some aspects of the topics that you will cover during the program:

  • Explore the history of yoga with the ancient text of the Masters
  • Learn about alignment of Asanas
  • Learn basic physiology and anatomy related to Asana and Chakra
  • Learn how to sequence Asanas in a fluid manner
  • Learn the different Sequence according to the respective Chakra


Chakras are wheel of energy that regulates our daily harmony, prana, the life force. During this week you will study how those Chakra effect our daily life when they are not balanced and active.

This knowledge will help you to wake the inner yogi, so that the yogi is in full joy, love, and healthy in peace and free from sorrow.

About 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.
