Is one of the founders and director of Okreblue Yoga Retreat Center.
A yoga teacher, holistic coach, nature lover and environmentalist Sasy is leading a conscious life on Paros Island.
She 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, Ayurvedic Yoga Massage Therapist, Unnata Aerial Yoga Teacher, NLP Master Practitioner & Coach and Mindfulness Meditation teacher.
She leads the Living Yoga Project teaching workshops, trainings and retreats at her home, Okreblue, on Paros island.
Her method is 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 meaningful intention, to the physical practice with her deep knowledge of human body anatomy, 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 aims to inspire 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.
Connie has been teaching and practicing yoga since 1998, eventually managing her own studio and teaching at retreat centers in Hawaii and Greece. She is committed and dedicated to guiding students as they explore their own practice and understanding of yogic teachings. In her classes she uses her years of experience on the mat to combine an active practice of asanas, pranayama, and meditation is a safe, fun, and encouraging environment.
My Yoga journey started in 2012 while studying Zen Shiatsu in Barcelona. After a few years of working as a massage therapist, fascinated from the energetic body and the oriental view, I wanted to deepen my knowledge and understand how to apply it in my massage treatments.
This brought me to Yoga as I was looking for something that could help me to be clean, aligned and strong to be a better vehicle for my clients.
Yoga become a lifestyle. In 2017 I did my first teacher training in Hatha-Vinyasa Yoga, and few months later in Yin Yoga. After about 2 years of teaching I joined and assisted Tanya Popovich in her Hatha-Vinyasa advanced teacher training program. After exploring different styles and studying with different teachers around the world, I was introduced to the Ashtanga Vinyasa method from the much appreciated Prem and Radha Carlisi, while living in Indonesia. Ashtanga become my main personal practice and a big part of my life. I was fortunate to practice and train with amazing and inspiring teachers along my way like Kristina Karitinou in Greece and, moved from the curiosity in source of new inspirations and experiences to be able to travel to Mysuru, India and learn from brilliant Ajay Kumar.
I love to bring the principles of Zen Shiatsu in my Yoga classes, specially while guiding Yin practices. As well as in my body treatments where I intuitively combine deep tissue techniques while focusing on pressure points and meridian lines according to the needs of the clients.
