George Batistakis

Taking up yoga was my New Year’s resolution for 2003. At first I practised on my own, using various textbooks. I came upon Iyengar yoga in March 2004. Ever since, my everyday asana practice has been based on aiming for correct alignment and precision: this has given me strength and flexibility, and has helped me strike a balance between the ups and the downs in my everyday life.

I’ve been teaching yoga since February 2009. I am also a certified teacher of various other subjects, including English as a second language, Latin, Ancient & Modern Greek language & literature and Film History. Of all the subjects I’ve taught since 1990, yoga has come to be my favourite as it gives me the chance to help others experience the benefits of yoga practice in the way Mr Iyengar has shown. This, in turn, helps me improve my own practice.

I have lived in Athens (Greece) since 1995. I am married to Dora and we have 2 sons, a high-spirited 10-year-old boy called Alex and a 3-year-old boy called Odysseus.
