Anastasia Stoyannides, B.A, is a certified yoga teacher in the technique of Eva Ruchpaul’s hatha-yoga “bien tempéré”, Paris/France. Originally Greek, Anastasia has been based in Vienna/Austria since 1992. Currently she shares her life and teaching career between Austria, Greece and Spain.
Anastasia has been a guest teacher for over 30 years. She has been invited internationally to facilitate seminars with various groups of people. She herself gives regular instruction in her private practice in Vienna 1070. Additionally she is organising intensive yoga workshops and yoga retreats throughout the European continent.
She had the good fortune to be introduced to movement in her early childhood. she has been accompanied by it ever since. In her previous profession as a performer, both as a soloist and as a member of dance and theatre companies, she explored improvisation as a key to spontaneous creativity.
After years of an intensive study of the human body, she finds her spiritual home at the yoga practice of Eva Ruchpaul. A technique that helped Anastasia to fuse all her previous knowledge of movement to teaching yoga and to embodying the personal growth.
Anastasia’s approach to hatha-yoga focuses on a profound and honest way of practicing as an inspiration for students and yoga teachers. Through her teachings they learn to trust to the beauty their existence and to unfold towards a refined state of self-reliance and inner silence.
