Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention on purpose in the present moment without judgment. It means maintaining a present-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, or surrounding environment. It is a scientifically proven approach that allows us to develop greater self-awareness and become more conscious, being gradually able to better handle anything that comes our way. We are more open to experience this life it all its dimensions and flavors, whether easy or hard, pleasant or stressful. Handling our emotions becomes easier as we develop a greater understanding and compassion for ourselves and others, which helps us enjoy more satisfying relationships and a happier life. Read more →
OPEN FLOOR MOVING MEDITATION
Open Floor Movement Practice is a dynamic moving meditation practice, it is mindfulness in motion, a practice where we learn to track thoughts, stories and patterns that hold us back and turn them into creative fuel. Using universal movement principles, such as breath, grounding and centering, our aim is to become more embodied or at home, for this beautiful ride of life, present for anything and everything – loving, losing, learning, creating, colliding, connecting. Open Floor is a dance meditation practice for building muscular and emotional intelligence, mindfulness and soulfulness. We cultivate the forces that fuel our creativity, our connections and our ability to change, which we all know is the only constant in life. Read more →

Founder & Lead Instructor | Myrto Legaki
Myrto studied Corporate Finance at the University of Piraeus, earned a Master's in Business Administration (MBA) from Boston University Graduate School of Business and then worked for 15 years as a management consultant and top level marketing executive in fast paced organizations in New York, London and Athens.
Around 2010 during a particularly difficult period in her life, her path led her to study Buddhist insight meditation. Over the years she deepened her practice, experiencing transformation and healing on many levels. Transitioning from the corporate world to follow her calling in leading a life of purpose, she founded One Breath Mindful Living Center aimed at sharing science-backed awareness practices that cultivate a more mindful, fulfilled life, and she teaches mindfulness and moving meditation to adults, children and corporations in Greece and internationally.
She is a qualified mindfulness and MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) instructor of the University of Massachusetts Medical School Center for Mindfulness as developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn, a Mindful Schools instructor for mindfulness to children and adolescents, as well as an Open Floor moving meditation instructor. She is also training in the systemic psychotherapeutic approach at the Athenian Institute of Anthropos (AKMA, one of the most renowned family therapy centers in Europe).
She has participated in the 10th Panhellenic Child Psychiatry Conference in collaboration with Dr. Petros Polychronis, Child Psychiatrist, AKMA Director and the 16th European Congress of Body Psychotherapy. She teaches moving meditation and mindfulness programs and workshops for private companies (Google, Piraeus Bank, Mastercard, Roche, DHL, Darphin, Quest Holdings, World Profile Group, Entrepreneur's Organization, Holmes Place), educational organizations and NGOs (Hellenic American Educational Foundation, Moraitis School, HIGGS, Organosi Gi). She is also as speaker on subjects related to awareness, creativity and wellbeing. She loves spending time with her family in nature and enjoying the silence on meditation retreats.
