Fotini 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) and then a 100hr Anusara Yoga training course with Todd Tessen, Sianna Sherman, Naime Jezzeny, Sue Elkind and Douglas Brooks. I attended several seminars at many yoga schools so as to gain more experience. My journey to India gave me a strong push.
My love for kids motivated me to study 300hr Diploma-Yogakids International U.S.A. and 320hr Rainbow Family and Community Yoga Teacher Training- Tuscan, Italy. (Yoga for kids, conception, pregnancy, post natal, babies, adults, family, menstruation, therapy, seniors and partners). Since then, I have been teaching yoga to adults and kids, at schools, yoga studios, and holistic centers as well as organizing and teaching Yoga Teacher training courses (200hr and 95hr Yoga kids) certified by Yoga Alliance U.S.A. and Yoga Professionals.
My first folktale, ‘’The tree that was always talking’’ was published in January 2014 and at the same year I founded Yoga Family Violet Alignment system. In 2015, my first collection of folktales “Yoga and folktales” was published by the Academy of poetry and folktales in Athens, Greece.
