Konstantina Karagianni, is born and raised in Athens, Greece. Growing up as an only child of divorced parents she had a long time only by herself, which had a positive impact on her personal growth and helped her focus on her education and studying. She was curious about many spiritual things since a young age, which for her back then was some metaphysical phenomena that she couldn’t yet explain. Her parents, even though they are faithful, were mostly focused on their career and most of the conversations were about financials since this is what they do. However, her mother as the years went by was turning more and more spiritual and she dragged her daughter with her.

Later on, she also chose the field of business and economics for her studies, so now she holds a degree from the Athens University of Economics and Business. At the same time, she have been involved in painting since a very young age and she have been taking classes for many years. For her this is also a kind of meditation; focusing on one and only thing (the paint), trying to figure out every little detail about it and after some time it feels like you are one with the object of focus. She believes that this was her first experience with meditation. Apart from art, she is also into sports, and she has been an amateur basketball player for some years.

The turning point in her life came early and gradually since she knew that her path was much more than working in a company as a business administrator. A little before she got her degree she got a job in a big international company in the field of marketing, as she wanted. Immediately she realized that this was not meant for her, so she did massage training and worked for the summer season as a masseuse. During that time she came across an advertisement for the SivaOm yoga teacher education program and without a second thought she signed up for it. At first, it was a step towards her growth, she didn’t have figured out yet if she would become a teacher, so she did it to help herself. It was a period full of questions, wandering but also physical pain and upcoming injuries. The results, both mental, physical, and emotional, were visible from the beginning. And since then her lifelong journey has started, following the path that was meant for her.

After finishing this educational program by Guru Siddhartha Shiv Sunit Khanna, who has been a unique teacher and a great inspiration for her, she is now a SivaOm yoga instructor and is already giving yoga lessons. Combining all the knowledge she has gained so far, she has now her own place with her partner where she can teach yoga in Athens. Her goal is to bring together all her knowledge and through yoga to help other people find solutions, evolve, solve their life problems or find their path, as has happened to her. As her guruji has said ‘If you give a man fish you help his hunger for one day. If you teach him to fish you help his hunger for many years. If you teach him yoga you feed his soul forever.
