Vivi Letsou, B.S., M.A., 
Certified Teacher: Yoga Alliance 500 hours, BASIPilates™,
Creator of Abhaya Yoga

After 22 years of living in California, Vivi left her film-making career and came back to Greece to live her dream. With her beloved husband, Eraj, and their amazing team they have build NYSY Academy for Yoga, Pilates, Health, and Avocado Vegetarian Café—two bright centers in the heart of Athens for positive living and community. 

Vivi has practiced Zen meditation for over 25 years under the guidance of her dear teacher, Reb Anderson. She also practiced and taught in the traditions of Ashtanga Yoga, Bhakti Flow, Anusara Yoga, and BASI Pilates. 

Wanting to share a path of practice that combined a clear life philosophy, strong Yoga asana practice, and the courage to live fearlessly, Vivi has created Abhaya Yoga—Strong Alignment, Fearless Action, a path she loves to share with heroic yogis in Athens and around the world.
