Mahima (Marion) is an eternal light-worker, seeker of the truth, and a lifelong student of movement. A former dancer, she completed her first YTT at Integral Yoga in 2005 and has been teaching ever since. She completed the 300-hour Jivamukti Teacher Training in 2015.
Drawing great inspiration from Sanskrit study and Vedanta, Marion hopes to spread this ancient knowledge and to help awaken the inner guru (inner teacher) residing in all of us. Her carefully sequenced classes focus on organically aligned movement, energetic connection, sound and mantra. She aims to make the yoga practice accessible to everyone, regardless of age or experience level.
Mahima is grateful to Shri Brahmananda Sarasvati and Ananda Ashram where she lived for three years and where she continues to study. She extends humble thanks to all of her teachers at Jivamukti, the Ashram, and to all of her teachers human and non-human.
Mahima has also been teaching Gyrotonic since 2005 and trained as a clinical massage therapist. She plays and practices many styles of music and recently studied Tibetan Singing Bowl therapy in Kathmandu, Nepal.
Polyxeni Aklidi is a certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher and a freelance actress based in Athens Greece. Her interest for meditation and yoga was triggered during her studies in drama school, where she started sensing the innate wisdom of the body. During the last twelve years, while working on stage, she has kept an intensive yoga practice. In and all she has found the two complementary in an intriguing way.
Her love for yoga and performance led her to travel around the world, from Brazil to India, to the States, England and Costa Rica she has had the opportunity to connect with great teachers as well as share her knowledge and inspiration along the way. She discovered Jivamukti yoga in New York and followed her heart to Costa Rica where she was trained amidst an ensemble of wonderful people. Ever grateful from the teachings she has received, she cherishes the opportunity to share her yoga practice, combining asana, meditation, chanting, yogic philosophy, poetry and literature in order to inspire people to live with more awareness and love for all beings.
