"presence is a superpower!"

I teach Yoga and Mindfulness to offer people invaluable tools for fostering an inner sanctuary of growth, healing and self-discovery. Yoga came into my life unexpectedly in 2010 and it has been an unwavering companion that continues to guide my journey.

I'm a RYT® 500 hour Yoga Alliance certified teacher and I completed trainings with many teachers including Nico Luce, Michela Montalbetti, Mark Stephens, Simon Park and Doug Keller, delving into the therapeutic dimensions of yoga. 

I teach a diverse range of yoga styles, spanning from the flowing energy of vinyasa and hatha flow to the serene pace of yin and restorative classes. My sessions incorporate meditation and pranayama, providing a holistic approach. I encourage students to explore their bodies and minds in different ways according to their specific needs, with respect and kindness as well as curiosity and openness. In my classes, I am dedicated to establishing a secure and nurturing space for practice, with a strong focus on cultivating mind-body-heart awareness. My primary intention is to foster mindfulness through the use of asanas as vehicles for this journey.

I have a deep passion for unraveling the intricacies and possibilities of the human mind. Over the years, alongside my yogic path, I've delved into the exploration of diverse meditation techniques, Eastern philosophies, and regression hypnosis. Through this quest, I discovered the profound benefits of Mindfulness Meditation, which not only provided me with greater insights and understanding but also enabled me to attain a deeper level of profundity in both my meditation and yoga practice. 

I'm a certified Mindfulness Meditation teacher and mentor, I studied with world-renowned teachers Jack Kornfield P.h.D and Tara Brach P.h.D and completed their comprehensive two-year Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification Program through Sounds True, The Awareness Training Institute and the Greater Good Science Center at the University of California, Berkeley. This journey has equipped me with invaluable knowledge and skills to guide others. I have also successfully completed the advanced Mindfulness Mentorship Training with Cloud Sangha, once again under the guidance of Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach, honing my skills as a teacher and mentor to support both groups and individual participants, and further deepening my commitment to mindfulness and its transformative power.

My classes are trauma sensitive and inclusive for everyone.

Aside from being a teacher, I'm a mother, I love nature, long hikes (check out my hike & yoga events at music, books, night time stories with my daughter, plant-based food... and all forms of creative expression! I believe in the magic of life and the resilience of the human heart. And finally I'm a language specialist and a translator with a university degree in linguistic mediation. I teach in Italian and English.
