Aggeliki was born in Peloponnese, Greece, from a young age was exposed to a healthy lifestyle, by being close to nature, honoring and respecting the energy that comes from mother earth and letting that pure energy heal Body and Mind. For the work she does today gives credit to both of her grandfathers that taught her, in their own unique way about mental and physical health. She was 15 years old when she said “I know that I want to do something in this life that helps people be “Healthy and Happy”, after she had lost her paternal grandfather with whom she spent hours daily in the garden and nature.

She has a Bachelor’s degree, from Salem State University, in Movement Science with a Minor in Human Biology. She has worked with diverse population in Wellness Centres, Yoga Studios and Sport Clubs in Boston since 1998. She was first introduced in Yoga in 1997 through a major course at Endicott College and she hasn't look back since then. As a teacher she’s is known for creating a safe and sacred space for her students, for the ability to provide a variety of modifications, hands on adjustments and present clear instructions. She builds each class around a specific theme, using carefully crafted sequences focusing on proper alignment and breath awareness. When she's not on her mat she's running outdoors and exploring new plant based recipes. 

She has received her 200hrs training from YogaWorks and is completing 500hrs in Intergrative Yoga Therapy at Kripalu Center. She was the founder and director of O.M.

Now, she’s been taking her teaching online and planning more workshops and trainings with international teachers and herself in the near future.
