Then other men in the group were all amazing and i feel they are now apart of my family. We got to learn how to love ourselves better and become better men, learn to let go and life better lives, Angelos is such an amazing teacher, he brings so much knowledge, and his way of teaching you will leave with so much to give and share. It was like he knew what we all needed, like really needed. I left a better person and took away so much that I will and want to incorporate in my daily life of who i am. “ Richard “Angelos is both an exceptional teacher (caring, patient, good at helping you push yourself) and a really great guy. All that yoga brought out a lot of emotions and Angelos was skilled at helping us understand how to put yoga to good use, not only for this one week, but also going forward in our everyday lives, in facing our challenges, from work stress to relationships and self-confidence.” Tim “ A special thank you to Angelos, who’s very passionate about his work and he helped me shift my perception of the world.
