Where we are most likely to find you in Lynn’s Kundalini Yoga? The Open Air Acropolis Roof Deck night classes enjoying the energy of this place and of the group. And translating Lynn’s articles in Greek. 🙂
First time you tried Kundalini Yoga (where/when/with whom)?: 17 years ago, in Athens I met a Greek young teacher, and he invited me to participate in a Kundalini Yoga class. After many years of Hatha Yoga this experience changed my life. It was an amazing experience for me! I practiced for 2 years, and then later, during a health problem, the practice of Kundalini Yoga supported me to restart and go on.
Tell us your top tip to combat climate change: Do your best, respect, be conscious.
Anything else you’d like us to know?: I am very happy to spend time in Paros, walking, breathing, swimming, teaching, meditating, admiring the changes of the nature through the year. After a long period away, I came back to Athens for a few months and even with the turbulence around me I feel joy rediscovering different areas of my city, feeling the energy, observing.
