Immersive Healing and Holistic Approach
In the last fifteen years, Dr. Maria Karastergiou practiced in different styles of yoga, kundalini, hatha, astanga, partner yoga, sivananda yoga, did a teacher training in astanga yoga and has created her own therapeutic approach, "Auroyoga".
Auroyoga classes include pranayama, meditation, relaxation and at the end a discussion on self growth questions.
Practiced with more willpower, concentration, presence, joy, the body becomes stronger, more beautiful, more flexible, more aligned. It acquires grace.
The mind is strengthened and becomes more disciplined and relaxed. Consciousness is deepening.
