Τhe Yoga Dive academy 

Founder Nathalie Kassdanno

The academy Yoga dive is an innovative combination a signature style of Yoga and a dream of a yoga community where all aspects come together, a generally holistic approach to the physical and the spiritual. An integration, the science of yoga and the love for the sea and conscious Re- programmed living . The fundamental base of the school is the deep breath work, so called pranayama in Sanskrit – conscious breathing. A holistic approach to the essence of humanity . 

Yoga Dive Academy in Cyprus, is certified by the International Yoga Alliance for 200 h. The school provides teacher training 200 hrs TT and 100 hrs Pranayama meditation teacher certification, as well as daily yoga classes, courses, workshops and international yoga retreats. 
The Yoga style that The Academy teaches incorporates elements of Hatha, yin, yang, Ashtanga and Vinyasa flow, as well as meditative practices, vibration activation Mantras and pranayama breathing techniques. 
Shake mediation practice and vinyasa flow, spinal yoga practice coming together with the breath, where the breath and movement become one. 
Yoga Dive differs because it uses various forms of yoga, to strengthen focus and deepen the breath – dynamic yoga and static yogasana (poses), as well advance pranayama kumbhaka (breath retention, Apnea) within the practice, also called dry training. 
Yoga dive is a perfect addition to any student and to anyone facing anxiety and stress in their lives, activating the parasympathetic nervous system and learning how to slow down our breathing-simply learning the art of breathing less. As the teaching of pranayama means exactly this, to control the flow of air. Breathing less is a controlled hypoventilation that eventually leads to tolerance of carbon dioxide and that in its turn leads to better absorption of oxygen.

It’s a combination of practices to strenghthen, balance and heal inside out.
The academy holds ecstatic dance workshops and shake meditation practice incorporated into the 5 element meditation – healing meridians of the main organs in the body. A focus on meditation and healing on a daily basis !
