My Way…

. . . to the Art of Life

Who I am

I am Erasmia and I am coming from Hellas where Philosophy was born, and the land of Pythagoras. I feel in love with Life and its Wisdom, and for me the Way to Life is an Art.

The Art of Life is about being healthy in Body Heart and Mind.
The Art of Life is about allowing your true self to reveal, about manifesting your heart”s deepest desire and discovering Life Purpose.
The Art of Life is based on understanding yourself and others in a holistic way, understanding the world and how it constantly changes.
The first step to the way of the Art of Life is Self-Awareness.

The Art of Life is a Holistic process.

Thinking about my Pursuit in Life I would say that eventually is to make people happy! Help them overcome their blockages or difficulties, recover possible emotional pain hidden under physical pain, guide them to a deeper understanding in a holistic way. Facilitate them to meet their true self in order to live according to their heart’s deepest desire and find their own way to self-fulfillment and happiness.

During my life time until now I went through several professional paths. What I have come to realize is that I have been a life coach all the way, as I was trying to find ways to make people happier and open their mind to new perspectives. I studied Theater and Acting and worked as an actress for some years. That really help me to discover and uncover hidden sides of different characters and personalities bring them to the light in a playful way. Later I left this career as my core values distanced me of the actor’s lifestyle beyond stage. My impulse to help people and my thirst to go deeper into understanding the true essence of being, pointed new directions. I kept my experience in role playing though, as a powerful and fun coaching tool.

At the same time, I became a certified yoga teacher and have been trained in holistic therapies and energy healing as well. I love freedom and travelling, so after raising my 2 children to adults, I decided to recalculate where I stand and redirect myself, according to my heart’s deepest desire. I started to work on my own way and terms, teaching yoga and authentic self-expression mostly in summer resorts and retreats along with workshops. I practice also meditation, mindfulness and I love to study philosophy, as well as applying its amazing wisdom in daily life and coaching.

I see myself as a Body Heart and Mind coach and that is why Life Coaching & Consulting in a Holistic approach is my way to bring together, to connect, all the knowledge and experience I have gained to this day and share.

MY STORY

Through my contact with my mentors and many different teachers of different nationalities, and through my travels, I have been influenced by different cultures. From this constant search I have found myself in various spiritual paths and not only. Life coaching, consulting, philosophy psychoanalysis and psychotherapy, mysticism, shamanism, alternative healing methods, astrology, are only some of them.

My first contact with the way of yoga occurred at a very young age through a book, in the context of my spiritual quests. My practice will begin later with various teachers. For many years I have dedicated myself to my love for acting, theater and dance. After an injury at the lower back, however, yoga enters in my life as a mean of restoring healing and empowerment and finally becomes a way of life.

Studies & Teachings

As a restless spirit, I explore various methods of personal development, alternative therapies and wellness through studies, trainings, seminars, books etc., but also by many years of personal experience in personal and group therapy, personal development coaching and consulting.

I have studied Coaching & introductory Consulting at Aegean University (Greece) and have been mentored by great teachers in Greece, as well as John Fuery the founder of MindTime.

My certification as a Yoga Teacher takes place at NYSY yoga school in Athens where I am also being initiated in Abhaya Yoga. A kind of practice which promotes fearless action and particular emphasis on the alignment of body, mind and soul. Inspired by my teachers,  I will discover a whole ancient holistic coaching system through yoga teachings.

I have also studied Theater in Athens, and attended various acting seminars with great actors, including Acting on Camera.

Other Skills and Activities

I have worked an actress professionally in the theater, TV, various events and shows.

I hold great experience in hospitality and tourism and have worked as a Guest Relation Manager in 5-star hotel, as well as in Spa services and holistic massage therapies.

I have several years teaching experience in yoga, in groups and personal training, as well as in my own system for releasing authentic expression and personal development (Re-Acting).

I have been trained in energy healing, the art of communication, hypnotherapy, ethereal nutrition ( by Alexandros Elion), crystals, aromatherapy, herbs, and hold ancient Greek massage as well as traditional Thai massage diploma.

I teach in English and Greek, and can speak also Portuguese French and German.
