Name: Lena Laki
Lives in: I live in Athens, Greece, in the neighborhood Koukaki.
From: I’m from Germany, and I grew up in a small picturesque town in the south, next to a big forest.
Occupation: I’m an indie-folk singer/songwriter. You can find all about my music via my website www.lenalaki.com! If you are on SPOTIFY it’d be amazing if you go have a listen to my music here, I’m always happy about new followers too 🙂 thank you for listening!
I’ve also recently founded my own company in Athens together with my husband – it’s an educational consultancy called “HostEd- European Centre for Continuing Education. ” We are organizing Erasmus+ projects for EU-wide vocational colleges here in Athens!
Tell us your first three jobs (ever!): Hmm let’s see, I started as a babysitter, the next one was a summer job as a factory worker in a washing machine company, and then I had a nice job in a really cute Wine&Tea shop.
Zodiac sign?: Pisces
Enneagram type (if you know it)?: I don’t know it, but I think I want to find out.
What do you love about Greece: I honestly think Greece is the most beautiful place on earth, and Athens has a very special vibe and magic to it. I love the smells, the food, Raki, the orange trees everywhere, Stavros Niarchos, open-air cinemas, … many things. And of course my amazing Greek family and friends. I love Greek people in general, I find them very authentic, sweet and soo child-friendly. I think Greeks aren’t really “small-talk type people”, and after just a few minutes you might end up talking about some personal topic which can create quite deep connections.
Tell us something most people don’t know about you: I studied English and Spanish literature. And my ears get awfully red after only one glass of wine 😉
Where we are most likely to find you in Lynn’s Kundalini Yoga? I have just recently started Lynn’s Kundalini Yoga, I did the roof deck night yoga and will surely do many more this summer as I liked it very much! I also tried the Salt Cave yoga which was a very unique experience.
The first time you tried Kundalini Yoga? With a DVD at home years ago.
Tell us your top tip to combat climate change: Let’s try to fly as little as possible and let’s use reusable products (no plastic bags, no hard plastic products that we throw away immediately…) These are the things I personally want to improve.
