Tania Kemou was born in Athens, Greece in 1985. After completing her studies in law, she started working as a corporate lawyer in Athens and then Paris, France, where she moved in 2010. It was in Athens where she had her first encounter with Ashtanga yoga in 2004, under the guidance of Savvas Giantsis.
Ashtanga opened a whole new world to her. The long tradition behind this practice, the commitment and dedication it requires and the deep peace and healing that result therefrom fascinated her. After moving to Paris she started studying with Patrick Frapeau and continued in the years to come to deepen her practice with different senior teachers, among whom Mark Robberds, Laruga Glaser, David Guarrigues and Govinda Kai.
After completing her 200hr Teacher Training in Thailand, Tania started traveling regularly to Mysore, India to study at KPJAYI with Saraswathi and Sharath Jois, the daughter and grandson of the late founder of Ashtanga vinyasa yoga, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. After her first trip to India, Tania decides to quit her job as a lawyer and dedicate her life to teaching yoga.
In her teachings, Tania focuses on the quality of breath, guiding students to unlock the potential of their body and gradually get to calm the mind. By transmitting the love for ash- tanga yoga, she seeks to empower students to get closer to their true self, unleash their full potential and live a happy and meaningful life.
“Do your practice and all is coming.”
— SRI K PATTABHI JOIS
