In the fast pace of our times and as everything becomes increasingly faster, finding stillness and balance within becomes an even harder task. A line from Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, “yogas chitta vritti nirodhah” refers to stilling the mind in order to experience Ultimate Reality and move toward Self-realization.
During yin Yoga – the quiet practice – we bring stillness, while slowing down to point our attention and intention inwards to connect to the purest essence of our being. Yin yoga has always been around, although it is relatively new to western society, we know from ancient yogic texts that seated postures were performed for thousands and thousands of years in India as part of a practice to calm the mind and prepare the body for meditation.
Yin yoga, also referred to as “Daoist” yoga, consists of asana
sequences that work deeply into the body’s tissues. The poses are often held for much longer than in other hatha yoga traditions, with the intention to access deeper layers of the body and connective tissues as well as combining the whole – going into our body following the breath process – with a more meditative approach and state of mind. Within this training you will be guided to walk your own path as a yin yoga teacher in order to teach your students the beauty and freedom within of this tradition.
As a student you will have the opportunity to learn more and go deeper in your own practice. As a teacher you will develop your skills on offering properly sequenced classes that will strengthen, stretch and stimulate to encourage more flexibility and freedom of movement while simultaneously releasing deep tension of the body and relaxing the nervous system of the participants. Moreover you will learn to promote and create a safe practice environment and a deep level of calmness, focus and equanimity within your classes, having all the proper tools and knowledge required. In the 21st century’s stressful times yin yoga offers the perfect balance for teachers and students alike.

ABOUT THE TEACHER
Thina is a certified E-500RYT and a YACEP (Continuing Education Provider) registered with Yoga Alliance, while being also certified as a teacher and trainer in Yin, Aerial, and Vinyasa yoga, Sivananda and Ashtanga are being her main Hatha yoga traditions on her yoga path. She is also a certified Ayurvedic and Classic massage therapist / Certified massage trainer registered with IPHM – International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine, and a voice and movement artist and performer.
Moving a lot and changing places since an early age in her life not only shaped her to a travelling Yoga nomad but also pointed her intention of keeping centered inside when everything outside was constantly shifting and changing.
Yoga came to her life when she was 12 after a serious traumatizing event that found her emotionally shattered, and developed further into a deeper inner later on, when a serious spinal injury made her change her perspective and ways that she perceived, appreciated and connected with her body, discovering the finer inner layers of this practice that go beyond the external physical experience of performing asanas. Suddenly she had discovered comfort, healing, freedom within, and a new vision that anything was possible.
Her immense love for singing and performing back then, led her to study classical singing, dance and musical theater performance and in 2011 she decided to move to the Netherlands to continue working professionally with music. Within her 7 years of living in Rotterdam she followed a two year Sivananda yoga teacher training course with Rama Shakti Janine Brall at Yoga Vidya in the Netherlands/Germany and started teaching intensively since of 2013. In 2017 she decided to follow her intuition as her compass once again, and dedicated a year of her life in the Karma Yoga path ”The Cycling Sutras” crossing Europe from the Netherlands to Greece on her bicycle, fundraising money for ”The Smile of The Child” organisation, leading her ”back home” when the idea of having a yoga school and yoga retreat of her own took form… manifested… and ”Yoga Fusion shala” as well as ”Urban Yoga House Hostel & Retreat” were born.
Before following a teacher training course with Manju Pattabhi Jois and while living in the Netherlands, she had the blessing to meet and practice with Ma Bela Burgos Lipat KPJAYI authorized Ashtanga teacher onwer of Ashtanga Yoga Shala – Jyväskylä (AYSJ) that really shaped her practice and made her fall in love with this tradition. Nowadays she still enjoys and keeps up with her practice next to Vairaygya Ranko Level 2 KPJAYI authorized Ashtanga teacher, joining his workshops and retreats and visiting Ashtanga Yoga Belgrade in Serbia.
Settled in the Greek northern lands in the heart of Ioannina’s city center, when she is not in the shala, you will find her singing and playing in the Urban Yoga Collective Kirtan band, escaping in nature with her beloved rescued dog Rex, taking her tent and bike to camp on the mountains, spending her time rafting down rivers, cycling south to the west coast seaside, or arranging her teacher training courses and retreats, visiting various places to teach workshops around Greece and abroad.
Professional development in: Sivananda, Ashtanga,Yin, Vinyasa and Aerial Yoga, Acro yoga and Yogadance, Yoga anatomy, Alexander-technique, Voice and movement Integration. Research and study upon Yoga/Vedanta/Tantra Philosophies, bodywork, movement and yoga anatomy, with a blend of different hatha yoga traditions are the inspiration behind her upcoming, ”Shiva-Shakti Vinyasa” 200hours and 300hours teacher training courses.
