Sofia Xirotyri started practicing Gymnastics at the age of 7 and acrobatic gymnastics at the age of 18. She competed and won served Hellenic Championships. She became part of the Greek National Aerobic Gymnastics Team and was recognized in several European and World Championships. She left the competitive world at the age of 30 and that’s when her journey with Ashtanga Yoga began, with her teacher Savvas Giantsis. She started practicing daily and in 2010 she traveled to India for the very first time. She then continued to grow her knowledge through many seminars (with Kino Mc Gregor, Laruga Glaser, Taric Tamic). She then traveled to New York and completed her Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training at Atmananda Yoga Studio with her teacher, John Tamayo. Meanwhile, she practiced daily with Eddie Stern and also took classes with Dharma Mittra. In 2011, she went to London and took classes with Sharath Jois, which led her to the decision to travel to Mysore, India. The yearly trips and her long stays at Mysore, became part of her life. In January of 2014, she became an authorized level 2 teacher from KPJAYI and her teacher in India, Sharath Jois. In 2016, she took a Special Course for teachers at KPJAYI in Mysore with teacher Sharath Jois. Since then, she participates in many seminars from her favorite teachers but also friends from all corners of the world. She still visits her Ashtanga Yoga school in Mysore. Daily practice, trips to Mysore and the Yoga Community are a constant source of inspiration for her. Her need to share her love for yoga led her to open One Soul Yoga Studio! It is a source of great happiness for her to communicate and transmit her knowledge to everyone who loves to practice yoga.

Akis Farmakis

Akis Farmakis holds a 500h diploma in ashtanga-vinyasa yoga from the famous Sampoorna school in Goa, India and has 8 years of teaching experience in several Yoga Studios in Athens.

I was born in 1982, studied law and worked for 6 years as a lawyer. Yoga came into my life coincidentally in 2005 and literally
changed it. After many years of personal practice, I traveled to India to learn from the place where she was born.

I hold a 500h diploma in ashtanga-vinyasa yoga from the famous Sampoorna school in Goa, India, certified by the Yoga Alliance, and along with yoga I hold a certification in Thai Massage from the ITM school in Thailand.

I have 8 years of teaching experience having worked in many yoga studios in Athens (including “fit me”, LA Yoga Studio, Vari Sports Club, house of yoga, Hot Ashram, happy yogi).

I continue to always look for new challenges in my life and try to impart my knowledge on the subject I love by following the advice of my teachers through my personal way of teaching.

Aggeliki Giannouli

My personal practice and development continues daily with Astanga Yoga and participating in many different seminars both in Yoga and Aerial Yoga.

I was born on September 9, 1982 and I started playing sports at the age of 3. Later on, I chose to follow the path of gymnastics and won several Hellenic championships both solo and as part of a team. Exercising has always been an active part of my life and I have tried many different kids of exercise (yoga, ballet, contemporary dance and beach volleyball). Yoga won me over! I realized that I wanted to get involved with motivating and inspiring others to focus on their wellbeing. In 2018 I completed my 200h Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training at House of Yoga and then a 30h Aerial Yoga Teacher Training with Grafts Hellas. My personal practice and development continues daily with Astanga Yoga and participating in many different seminars both in Yoga and Aerial Yoga.
