About Twelve Om
TWELVEOM - Athens Yoga Festival
Greece has always been a land of sacred energy devoted to connection with the divine, self-exploration, and philosophy.
This energy is still vibrant in every corner of Athens, transforming each gathering, interaction and quest into something unique.
As yogis, we find this to be the ideal environment to practice and uplift our spirit. Imagine, practicing yoga where ancient Philosophers studied and searched for the truth. A place where the notion of democracy, ethics, science, art, virtue… were first developed.
We invite you to a return to sacred places…
Practice yoga under the shadow of the Acropolis, explore ancient paths in the city center, visit historical grounds where Greek philosophers lectured.
Dance, taste new flavors and connect with yogis from around the world.
Most importantly, join us on our vision to explore and connect different cultures and ideas. A journey from the philosophers of ancient Greece to the great Yogis of India. Different worlds, different times, different paths…. all leading to One Truth!
TWELVE OM was inspired by the idea to connect Yoga, Greek philosophy, different teachings and traditions, in order to show that they are all leading to a common universal knowledge, One truth!
Our Name was inspired from the significant meaning of the number 12 in many different traditions around time. 12 Apostles, 12 Chapters of Bible, 12 Angels, 12 tribes of Israel, 12 names of the Sun in Sanskrit, 12 sacred cushions of the Creator, 12 gods of Olympus, and so much more…
In Ancient Greece is signifies the 12 gods of Olympus.
No matter how different our cultures, traditions, beliefs and systems are, we are all One, we are all Yoga.
Let’s chant Om all together!
