YOGA SESSIONS

Yoga is an ancient method of self-investigation, originated within the wisdom traditions of India. Yoga means Union. The union within body and soul, which we can achieve through meditation, breathing and practicing the asanas (body postures). It is a holistic practice that supports all other aspects of life, and its myriad of benefits is reported in scientific findings. Yoga is more than a form of sport. It is a choice of thinking, it is a life style. Sometimes we are becoming confused, angry, anxious, we are afraid and we can not see what is good for us, what is good for our well being. This is where yoga and meditation comes in, to rebalance us. With the yoga techniques we can unite the mind, body, and spirit. Yoga allow us to experience a deep emotional awareness and meet our true nature, that it is basically good, positive and relaxed.

Hatha yoga uses bodily postures (asanas),breathing techniques (pranayama), and meditation (dyana) with the goal of bringing about a sound,healthy body and a clear, peaceful mind. There are nearly 200 hatha yoga postures, with hundreds of variations, which work to make the spine supple and to promote circulation in all the organs,glands, and tissues. Hatha yoga postures also stretch and align the body, promoting balance and flexibility, along with a sense of well-being to the practitioner. Flow-Based Hatha Yoga uses movement and breath together to produce a “flow” of postures that lead from one to the next. “Hatha Yoga” is a form of yoga from India and is the basis of all contemporary yoga styles, it is the best known and most practiced type of yoga.

Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa yoga is sometimes also called flow yoga, because of the smooth way that the poses run together and become like a dance. The term “Vinyasa” means «breath-synchronized movement» and it is synchronizing the movement to the breath. Vinyasa yoga turns the static hatha postures into a dynamic flow. This type of yoga is a series of poses that will move you through the power of inhaling and exhaling. Vinyasa movements are smoothly flowing and almost dance-like, which explains why it is sometimes referred to as Vinyasa Flow or just Flow. It is rhythmic, dynamic and intense.

RENA BETSAKOU

“Everything is possible” when you follow your path. The past is not important. It is simply there to make the present stronger.

Rena BertsakouI will share with you the story of my past so you can get to know me better…

My name is Rena Betsakou. I was born and raised in Athens Greece.

At some point of my life around 2005 I was a graphic designer and owned a studio and at that time stress introduced itself to me, by manifesting itself in panic attacks. “They” were consuming my life, so I had to find a way to deal with the stress. I discovered new paths that helped me cope with what I was experiencing. I felt the need to share all of my knowledge and the steps I took to overcome those panic attacks, with those close to me.

This is how I embarked on a new journey.

It all began in 2006 with Hatha Yoga. My instructor, Brenda Cathersides, encouraged me to get two Reiki certifications (1&2). Later, I worked with my new instructor, Maria Papadopoulouon Hatha and Restorative Yoga. She also encouraged me to study Reflexology. I joined KE.RE. Center for Reflexology and Research and studied the practice of Reflexology with the great Reflexologist, Efrosini Stravelaki.

Since 2012, I practice Reflexology professionally, with love and devotion.

Yoga at the same time has continued to be a very important part of my life and it has supported me during many critical times. Teaching me to be present and embracing every step of the way…

I completed the Y.H. Teacher Training 200 hours at Yoga House in Athens, with Christo Harikopoulo. I also specialized in Nuerolanguage Programming N.L.P. with Valery Saier and Module 1 in Kids Yoga, with Christina Matsi.

The journey of learning, studying and practicing does not stop for me. I am attending several Yoga workshops, and seminars around Greece with different amazing teachers. I also continue to expand my knowledge of Reflexology by researching studies, taking place in seminars and activities that are sponsored by the Reflexology Association.

Today you will find me sharing my knowledge, expertise and love for Reflexology and Yoga, at the island of Paros. I consider it a blessing to be able to do what I love at this beautiful island and an honor to be allowed to offer quality services to the people that select me.

This has always been a dream of mine.
