Maryanthie Achlioptas (Marianthi Achliopta)
Yoga Instructor at Swaha Yoga Center

Maryanthie studied Marketing and Communication and worked successfully in the media for 7 years. In 2001 she has her first contact with Hatha Yoga. Following her teacher’s, Michalis Filinis, advice she did her first Teacher Training in 2005 in a private school in London, after completing her Master’s Degree. In 2010 she leaves her previous profession, in search of a more balanced life, and she does the Yogaworks Teacher Training. Since then she works with what she respects and loves the most: teaching Yoga. Her practice is dynamic; it combines the perpetual acknowledgment of breathing with the alignment in the execution of the asanas, in order to discover the unlimited physical and mental abilities of her students.

Swaha appears dynamically in her life in 2012, where she completes the Aerial Yoga Teacher Training and the 300hr Teacher Training (Hatha, Vinyasa and Gentle Yoga). A few months later she becomes a member of the Swaha’s teaching staff.

In the meantime, she continues her training by practicing Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, and by attending Yoga seminars in Greece and other countries, with exceptional teachers like: David Swenson, Todd Tesen, Rima Rani Rabbath, Surrinder Singh, Sky Akasha, Swami Nirvikalpa, Patrick Broome, Swami Yogananda, Cat Alip Douglas, Meghan Curry.

She feels really happy doing the best “job” in the world!
