Eleni Valkanou

Originally from Greece, Eleni has always been trying to balance her life between her two true loves: Ballet and Law. Besides being a ballet teacher and a certified pilates and yoga instructor, she is a lawyer specializing in Maritime Law. Fifteen years ago when Eleni was first introduced to pilates and yoga, she immediately fell in love and – needless to say – she never stopped practicing ever since.


Her pilates and yoga studies in London, New York, Amsterdam and Thessaloniki along with her fourteen years of teaching experience in Greece and in the Netherlands, have honed her ability to identify imbalances in people's bodies and encourage them to improve their skills and overcome any deficits with a main focus on breathing techniques, body balance and stretching. Moreover, Eleni's ballet background has always influenced her classes during which she shares her passion for graceful movement and flow while paying particular attention to technique, alignment and control. Eleni speaks Greek, English, Dutch and German, so don't be shy and try her mat, reformer or barre classes.
