Deeply healing

Greece is the ultimate destination for culture, yoga, sunshine, and relaxation. Surrounded by views of the Mediterranean Sea, and guided by Alex's kind teachings, you will find deep peace.


Alex Barreto has completed a 500-hour training at ISHTA yoga with Alan Finger, who continues to be his teacher. ISHTA Yoga gives you all the information and techniques you need to develop a personal home practice and it’s a system that acknowledges that there is no single, correct path towards contentment and enlightenment.

Alex is also certified to teach Restorative Yoga, which he learned from Jillian Pranksy.
