Dimitris Gkioulos

Founder | Yoga Trainer
Dimitris attended his first yoga class by chance in 2008 and completed his first 200-hour training program in 2015. It was a way for him to escape the stress of daily life and work as a chef for many years, as well as a means of inner exploration.
 He has attended and completed the following teacher training programs:
  • Yin Yang Yoga Teacher Training 200 hours
  • Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher Training 200 hours
  • Mindfulness Meditation Course 8 weeks
  • Thai Yoga Massage Training 120 hours
  • Kids Yoga Teacher Training 60 hours
  • TRX Suspension Training
Additionally, he has attended numerous seminars related to yoga, meditation, psychology, and nutrition. He is a certified yoga teacher by Yoga Alliance International and the founder of the Yamas Food Project, organizing seminars on mindful eating and cooking at various yoga retreats.
A significant turning point in his journey was attending his first ten-day Vipassana meditation course, an experience that changed his life.
He lives and has collaborated with the biggest gyms in Chania, Crete. Significant professional collaborations include those with Yoga in Crete and later with Yoga First Studio Chania, where he was a co-owner of the studio and instructor of the Train Your Mind educational program in collaboration with Yoga First Academy.
Driven by his need for personal growth and love for yoga, he founded Re-Treat Yoga Studio in Chania, a space where one can learn to connect with oneself, recognize their needs, and learn to care for themselves with love as they deserve.
Since 2015, he has been organizing yoga classes, seminars, and retreats throughout Greece and abroad, collaborating with hotels and retreat centers to promote alternative tourism in Crete.
