❋ABOUT THE TEACHER
Yoga conquered Nireas after a journey of self-awareness in India.
Born in Greece, he left the country at his 17 to study IT in Germany. Very soon (he was 21) he discovered his love and ability to teach; from modern latin dances to Greek as a foreign language and computer applications, Nireas was travelling, learning and sharing knowledge.
It was only in 2011 when he quit his job in Cyprus as a 3D-product Designer and –following a friend’s advise– he discovered India and the ancient science of Yoga. From that moment he became conscious of what he wanted to do; nothing but practising, learning and spreading the knowledge of yoga.
After having collected self-experience(*) by attending yoga, and meditation courses and TTC’s (Yoga Teacher Training Courses), Integral Yoga captivated his interest and attention because of the way it combines self-development with spiritual upliftment.
Nireas is a highly sought after instructor and has taught numerous courses, workshops ans TTC's in India, Greece, France, UK. He speaks fluent English, French, German, Spanish and Greek.
