After my Fine Arts and exhibition coordination degree in Milan and Venice, I worked for 13 years as a project manager in galleries and contemporary art centers between Italy and Spain.
Since 2010, I became more consistent in my Yoga practice.
In 2017 I received my first Yoga teacher’s training course in India.
In 2018 I opened my studio in Ibiza, Open Shala.
In 2019 I moved to Minorca where I currently live and work.
I first trained in India with Pundit Radhesyam Mishra (from the classical lineage of the Yoga Institute of Mumbay, with great emphasis on the teachings of Patanjali and the Bhagavad Gita).
I’ve been continuing my education in Europe along the last years, with Harmony Hannigan (Nayana Yoga) and Diana Naya (Samyama Yoga) among others.
Tantric practices, the energetic focus of Nayana Yoga and the slow, functional and conscious Vinyasa sequences of Samyama Yoga have been my main inspiration for both my personal practice and my teaching over the last few years.
Since 2020, the options for online training increased and improved considerably, so I was able to access sessions and workshops with some other teachers that I admire, despite the distance. Among them I would like to mention Uma Dinsmore Tuli, whose book and workshops “Yoni Shakti” inspired me to deep dive in a more feminine perspective of Yoga and how we can adapt the practice to our natural cycles.
As a result of this new perspective I was encouraged to investigate through my personal practice and self-study with other great women authors such as Sally Kempton, Linda Sparrowe, Patricia Walden, Gabriella Cella… and I joined a 10 month sadhana with Mahavidya, the 10 aspects of feminine energy or Shakti, guided by my teacher Harmony Hannigan.
I am as passionate about learning as I am about teaching, I consider myself as an eternal student and a good communicator. My personal aspiration is to dedicate most of my life time to the understanding and practice of my Dharma, the service I can give to the world.
I speak Spanish, English and Italian.
