Name:
Polyxeni Aklidi (Polyxeni Aklidi)
Yoga teacher at Swaha Yoga Center

Polyxeni is a freelance actress with a rich background in physical movement work. Her interest for meditation and yoga was triggered during her studies in drama school, where she started sensing the innate wisdom of the body. During the last ten years, while working on stage, she has kept an intensive yoga practice. In and all she has found the two complementary in a beautiful way.

Her love for yoga and performance have led her to travel around the world, from Brazil to India, to the States, England and Costa Rica she has had the opportunity to connect with great teachers as well as share her knowledge and inspiration along the way. She has studied extensively within various yoga practices and she is one of the few Certified Jivamukti Yoga teachers based in Athens.

The core concern of her practice is mindfulness; being present every moment with the body and breath. While teaching, her goal is to create a space for practitioners to feel inspired, nurtured and grounded. Somehow re-visiting life that 'happens' through us is for her a great source of energy and calm.
