I traveled through Athens in June 2018 and found this absolutely lovely ashtanga space. The teachers literally changed my ashtanga practice in 3 short visits. I am so grateful and looking forward to returning someday. Without hesitation I recommend this space.🙏❤

sprouted up. The central artery of Agion Anargiron
Street has lively places to eat or drink. Further
west, you can visit the peaceful ancient cemetery of
