These techniques I constantly bang on about are nothing new! They are derived from ancient practises that have survived for a reason. Because the breath is the foundation of all health.
In this weeks powerful conversation I’ll be chatting to fellow Oxygen Advantage master instructor, Anastasis Tzanis about the power of using functional breathing techniques in Yoga both on and off the mat.
From Greece to New York to London – Anastasis Tzanis serviced the Greek Special Forces as a paratrooper for 1 year, traded currency derivates in New York and London for 7 years and picked up a couple of other dopamine-driven hobbies along the way. During his years in banking he noticed how detrimental stress can be on our bodies – leading to stiffness, early ageing and injury.
This led him to begin his studies in yoga & nutritional therapy in 2009 where he developed a wellness protocol combining innovative yoga modalities with the fundamentals of breathwork. He has dedicated his life to understand the link between mind and body, the role of breath towards strengthening the connection between the 2, and prove that the mind and body are one on an empirical level.
Standing on the shoulders of his teachers, led him to his awardance as a top yoga teacher in London by AboutTime magazine (in 2017), teaching the breathing module at the HotPod Yoga Teacher’s Training (since 2018) and leading the wellness offsite for the Crisis Management team of Fortune 500 company (in 2019). He strives to provide his clients: individuals and work teams, with an achievable, individualized protocol and full-time, reliable support throughout its implementation.
