Foteini Dimitriou – Founder of Yoga Family Violet Alignment – Writer
I was born in Athens and at an early age, I discovered my true love for yoga.
I originally studied a 200hr Hatha Yoga teacher training course ( Heiron Kentavros )- ( 2007 – 2008),then a 100hr Anusara Yoga training course with Todd Tessen, Sianna Sherman, Naime Jezzeny, Sue Elkind and Douglas Brooks. I continued with a 300hr Yoga teacher training, Vedansha, Rishikesh, India. I attended several seminars at many yoga schools in order to gain more experience.
My love for kids motivated me to study 300hr Diploma-Yogakids International U.S.A. and 320hr Specialization Rainbow Yoga Teacher Training- Tuscan, Italy. (Yoga for kids, conception, pregnancy, post natal, babies, adults, family, menstruation, therapy, seniors and partners).
