Instructor Anastasia Sarantari

Anastasia was born in Athens, Greece. She studied ballet and contemporary dance. She got introduced to yoga and fell in love with it! She started practicing daily and in 2013 she became a Certified Hatha Yoga instructor by Yoga Alliance. In 2017 she was certified as an Asthanga Yoga Teacher (primary series) by David Swenson. In 2019 she completed the Aerial Yoga Teacher training program by Tanya Popovich. She also partook in seminars on prenatal yoga, kids yoga, rocket yoga and nidra yoga as well as Thai massage. She has been teaching Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Asthanga Yoga and Aerial Yoga for several years and keeps practicing every day because “yoga is 99% practice and only 1% theory.”
