Okreblue and Sasy Chasomeri (Living Yoga) is excited to offer a Yoga Alliance registered, 200-hour Yoga Teachers Training course

The main focus of our training will be uniting the traditional practices of Alignment based Hatha Yoga and Vinyasa style with Ayurveda Immersion. This program is designed for those of you who want to become certified yoga teachers and /or deepen your knowledge of the relationship between these two ancient practices, deepen your yoga practice and gain a foundational understanding through an in-depth study of yoga philosophy and yoga anatomy. Yoga and Ayurveda are sister sciences originally designed to be practiced together which can lead us to the highest truth of our innermost self. Our immersion style of Yoga and Ayurvedic training allows you to personally experience the benefits of daily self-care such as seasonal eating, meditation, mindfulness, and yoga. Apart from finding your dosha and understanding of how this ancient system works, we will study Ayurveda’s philosophy and its take on topics such as digestion, nutrition, anatomy, physiology, and psychology. Immersion into Yogic studies is a profound and beneficial life changing experience. In this training, you will be taught the traditional teachings of Hatha Yoga, functional anatomy and alignment to safely create vinyasa classes and learn how to create yoga sequences for your own practice, including ways to plan classes and design sequences guided by the Ayurvedic principles. Immerse yourself for 25 days at our seaside eco-retreat center. Classes, accommodations, organic locally sourced farm to table meals are included; your only responsibility once you arrive is to leave the outside world behind to take in, absorb, and live the teachings of yoga. Yoga teachers’ trainings are not just for advanced students or for those who wish to teach yoga.

The practice of yoga is different for everyone and each one will adapt the practice and the teachings to their own needs. It is within this process and personal experience that lies at the center and the source of our work. Through this process, you will find the courage and inspiration to share what you’ve learned and experienced. Your footpath will flourish gradually, your role as a yoga teacher will become stronger, and you will find clarity and self-confidence along the way.

FACULTY

History and Tradition of Yoga

With Nancy Hitzanidou. We will join together in an exciting journey along the History of the Yogic Tradition, starting from one of the first cradles of civilization, the banks of the Indus River, where the Vedas and the Upanishads were born. The flow will guide us to the Epic period of Yoga, as we will study the venerated scripture of the Bhagavad Gita, and next, to the study of the renowned Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, the epitome of Classical Yoga as a Science of the Soul. Our journey will continue with a view on the life-affirming, multifarious and intriguing Tantric Tradition, along with the study of the noted yogic manual of Hatha Yoga Pradipika; to finally conclude with the nowadays worldwide blossoming of the yogic practice.

Sasy Chasomeri

A yoga teacher, a holistic coach, a dog lover, a nature lover and environmentalist, Living the Yoga and leading a conscious life on Paros Island.
Sasy has been experiencing the multiple benefits of yoga since 2006 and had the call to teach in 2010. She is a certified and registered yoga teacher E-RYT® 200, RYT® 500, certified NLP Coach, Ayurveda Practitioner and Ayurvedic Yoga Massage Therapist.

Originally from Evia, Sasy studied English and was teaching it as a second language to children for many years. Her experience in working and teaching children offered her the ability and quality to teach from the heart with openness and compassion.

Sasy was always an active, sporty type of person, full of energy and constantly on the move. She found herself exploring different physical practices, such as aerobics and dancing. Her introduction to yoga came at a turning point in her life while she was experiencing great grief.

The soothing impact of yoga ignited her transforming process and inspired her to help people find their focus and stay grounded. It is through gratitude that she was able to tap into inner calm and self-acceptance, and now she encourages her students to do the same.

Currently, as one of the founders and director of Okreblue Retreat Center based on Paros, she leads the Spiral Yoga Project teaching workshops, trainings and retreats. Sasy is passionate about teaching yoga and supporting students in their quest to discover and live their full potential.

Sasy’s experience in teaching different methods of yoga, has led her to teach from the heart, adjusting her teachings according to every individual’s needs. Combining Anusara yoga method of alignment and Tantra philosophy with Ayurveda, Yoga as therapy and Unnata Aerial Yoga you will find yourself exploring what serves you best for your evolution as a human; body, mind and spirit.

She has studied next to many different amazingly gifted teachers such as Konstantinos Charantiniotis, Tara Judelle, Todd Tessen, Carlos Pomeda, Jonas Westring, and Vivi Letsou, just to name a few.

Her classes emphasize sound body alignment, based on the Alignment Principles of Anusara Yoga. The practice of Anusara Yoga is considered to be ‘heart-oriented’, meaning that it is expressed from the ‘inside out’. Artistically and mindfully, Sasy interweaves a heart theme and meaningful intention, to the physical practice as a way to expand and take your awareness beyond the mat and into everyday life. Each sequence is very carefully designed to meet her students’ needs for continuous growth and healing.

Sasy teaches from the heart and inspires people to live life to its fullest potential, cultivate their inner power, and unfold the strength that is already present to face life’s challenges as opportunities for development and transformation. You can’t help but leave any of her classes amazingly uplifted!
