200h Yoga Teacher Training in Lefkada Greece (PASSED)

Get ready to embark on a journey of self-growth and self-development through Yoga, in Palairos, the jewel of the Ionian sea in Greece. Palairos is historically known for its salt lake that saved Cleopatra, as she was able to hide her ships there.

YogaUnion has been delivering yoga teacher training courses (YTTC’s), based on Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow, an internationally accredited program with Yoga Alliance, for over a decade now.

Enchanted by their experiences in Bali & India, Ourania and Spyros, the founders of YogaUnion, decided to call Palairos their new Yoga home. Bringing their experiences from their permanent home in Ubud (the cultural and yogic capital of Bali), all the way to their birthplace in Greece.

YogaUnion is currently running a 200hr Vinyasa TTC, a unique and authentic course, open to those who want to become yoga teachers, or simply deepen their practise. YogaUnion Shala is located on a cliff, surrounded by Greek olive trees and botanical herbs, overlooking the endless blue waters of the Ioanian sea.

*The sea was named after Io, who according to Greek Mythology, was the first priestess of goddess Hera. Io had an affair with Zeus, king of Gods, who transformed her into a white heifer to save her from the anger of Hera.
