Often, styles of Yoga practiced nowadays in the West are branches of Classical Hatha Yoga, including Hatha Vinyasa, Yin, Kundalini, Ashtangha Yoga etc.
Nektarios Mitritsakis was born in 1971 in Chania, Crete where he lives up until now.
In 1998, his studies in sitar and classical Indian music brought him to India and eventually to his first yoga class. Since then, yoga became an integral part of his life.
Each of the following years, while in India and in parallel with his studies in music, he pursued to deepen his practice by working with various teachers, by coming in contact with many practitioners and by studying thoroughly the classical yoga scriptures.
This quest of his brought him in contact with the Asthanga Vinyasa system and since 2002 he has been practicing it systematically and with great devotion. He has been studying with Kristina Karitinou, also taking seminars with Richard Freeman, David Williams and Manju Jois.
Nektarios has been teaching the Ashtanga yoga method as taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois since 2009 while in 2012 Manju Jois authorized Nektarios to further do so. He now, teaches primary and intermediate series.
His extensive time to India also led him to become an accomplished sitar and veena player as well as a certified Vedic astrologer. During the last years he also practices Vipassana meditation and spends much of his time on the mountains becoming a skillful mountaineer.
