Myrto Legaki - TEDx Athens

Myrto Legaki

Mindfulness & Open Floor Meditation Instructor

Myrto studied Finance in Athens, earned an MBA from Boston University 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. During a particularly difficult period in her life, dealing with a health issue and high levels of stress that brought her on the verge of burnout, her path led her to study Buddhist insight meditation and conscious movement.

Over many years she deepened her practice, experiencing transformation and healing on every level. Transitioning from the corporate world to follow her calling in leading a life of purpose and after extensive international professional training, 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 movement meditation to adults, children and corporations in Greece and internationally.

She is a certified mindfulness and MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) instructor from the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, a certified mindfulness instructor for children from the Mindful Schools organization, as well as a certified Open Floor moving meditation instructor. She also studies systemic psychotherapy at the Athenian Institute of Anthropos (AKMA).

Myrto is also a TEDx speaker and has participated at the Panhellenic Child Psychiatry conference and the European Conference for Body Psychotherapy. She maintains a daily meditation practice since 2010 and continues studying with important teachers across the world, fascinated with the breath, stillness, movement and what it is that makes us human.
