About The Teacher

Ourania Bouzouki: Ourania, a professional architect turned into yoga teacher, has been practicing yoga since 1996. She started studying Ashtanga Yoga with Giovanni Formisano in 1996. In order to deepen her understanding of yoga she completed her first four year long Yoga Teacher Training in Hatha Yoga, in 1999 and continued her yoga education by attending various seminars and workshops on yoga all over Europe. Her passion and love about yoga led her to a trip of search great teachers and inner reflection. Since 1996 until today she felt the urge to visit India every year, so that she could learn about the deeper aspects of yoga. 

Having experienced the deeper meaning of yoga and life in India, she decided to undertake one more Yoga Teacher Training at Sampoorna Yoga, Goa. After the completion of this training she opened the first and only yoga school and studio in 2011, "YogaUnion", at Ioannina, Greece. A wonderful and warm place, that made yoga known and loveable to the Greek city.

Ourania realised that with the present circumstances in Greece, there is an urgent need of more qualified, professional and enthusiastic yoga teachers, and she alone is not enough to spread this beautiful art of living. Recognising this, she decided to train more yogis to become yoga teachers so that they can share and spread the knowledge and the beautiful practice of yoga with one and all. Thus she decided to start her own Certified, Yoga Teacher Training in Greece. Since 2011 until today she has organize more over 20 yoga training in cooperation with Yoga Alliance Professional. Most of her’ s students are acclaimed teachers and others cooperating next to her at Yoga Union or they have built their own successful career.
