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 in order 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) as well
as 300hr Yoga teacher training, Vedansha, Rishikesh, India.
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.
In 2018 Sophia Kritikou (Psychologist - special education teacher) and I created SoFo project, peer teaching in yoga practices for empowerment and self-regulation development which is a program related to Yoga for special needs and was awarded with the second prize by the EPR organization. (2019)
In September of 2019, I opened Yoga Violet House, a yoga studio in Athens, Greece where Yoga Family Violet Alignment system is taught.
Awdhesh's quest for yoga learning began from 2011 while being in contact with several renowned yogis in India. Since the enlightenment, he is always cultivating and expanding his experience and knowledge of this lifelong practice. To establish a career in yoga, he attained a diploma in Naturopathy and yoga philosophy, and in 2014 he graduated with master's in yoga studies. After his graduation he realized that yoga is beyond just a daily practice; it is a way that can be applied to every aspect of living. To deepen his study, he went to Mysore to practice Ashtanga Vinyasa under the guidance of yogi Ajay Kumar.
Awdhesh is a seasoned yoga teacher registered with Yoga Alliance USA (RYT). He brings a pragmatic approach to his teaching and offers students a clear, approachable and understandable way to develop their yoga practice. He has a unique ability to connect with others in a simple but profound way by making his classes fun yet challenging. Over the years because of his unwavering and immense passion for yoga, he always felt compelled to share the benefits of yoga with others.
