A curious daughter of “Pachamama”, she became certified as Hatha-Ashtanga and Vinyasa Yoga instructor, whilst currently specializing in integrating Mindfulness into Positive Psychology and Emotions management.
Ana Giselle started offering guided meditations, asana and breathwork (pranayama) in March 2020, in an effort to counteract the effects of stress, anxiety and depression caused by the imposed lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Her sessions, “Gentle awakening” and “Yoga with intention” are designed to guide all-level of practitioners to go within and reconnect to their own loving essence, redefining their relationship with their own bodies and to Mother Earth.
She firmly believes that a conscious and honest Yoga practice lifts the veil of separation and brings forth a healthy, balanced and sustainable way of relating to everything that is.
Her life mantra: “Change starts with oneself… when we raise our vibration, we raise the vibration of those around us.” In other words, if we are happy, we share happiness with others. If we are miserable, we share misery. If we are peaceful, we share peace.

Yoga, Island hopping & hidden gems !
Porto Timoni is one of the most beautiful and famous places in Corfu. It is a wild “double” beach that can only be reached by foot or by boat. The hike takes only one hour, which means this place is usually very crowded during daytime. However, thanks to our expertise in the area, we will be able to practice yoga at sunrise and sunset and enjoy this gem just for ourselves!
Agios Giorgios, Arillas, Erikoussa and Othoni
Right next to the famous spot of Porto Timoni, there are a number of wild and crystal clear beaches, perfect for any yogui and sea lover: Agios Giorgios, Arillas, Mathraki, Othoni, Erikoussa.
We will discover the north, the east, the west and the south of Corfu. One more beautiful than the other, deserted at the right times, these spots can only be reached by boat!
Magical and secret places
We will sail to the most picturesque, magical and secret beaches of the Archipelago. Exploring the north, towards the famous Cape Drastis, the east, the Corfu-Canal and duzen of bays, the south, Arkoudilas, and the west, Paleokastritsa, Issos Beach and mainland. We will be surrounded by beauty everywhere!
In the very north of the island of Paxos lies the bay of Lakka. In addition to the perfect anchor and bathing conditions, there are several great places for yoga units: the Kanoni, Paralia and Plani beaches or the high plateau at the lighthouse.
In the very south of the island of Paxos is the bay of Mongonissi, where Pan&Theo run the well-known Mongonissi Beach restaurant. A pier in the bay offers ideal mooring conditions and perfect protection. Mongonissi Bay is surrounded by scenic olive groves, the perfect setting for grounding to mother earth and enjoy nature!
Voutoumi and Vrika (Antipaxos)
The highlight of a sailing trip from Corfu is the island of Antipaxos. Unique is the azure water on the beaches of Vrika and Voutoumi. They provide a unique setting for a sunset yoga session. Then the sandy beach of Vrika, crowded during the day, is deserted at sunset. An excellent anchorage in calm weather is Mesovrika Bay, just across from Voutoumi.
