My teaching combines asana, Pranayama and Meditation to appreciate the joy of the present moment.
I was born in Italy and I have lived in different countries since my early twenties – from England to Egypt and Spain, to Australia and Ireland. I moved to Macclesfield, Cheshire, in 2012 after meeting my now husband Andrew on our teacher’s yoga retreat in India. We opened up our yoga studio Pure Yoga Cheshire, the very first space exclusively dedicated to the practice of yoga in June 2012. We then gradually established ourselves as yoga teachers in our current home in Somerset. We have been teaching yoga classes, workshops and retreats in the Glastonbury and nearby areas since 2016.
I am currently teaching a Monday night Yoga class at 5 pm at Goddess House, Glastonbury.
I initially trained as a yoga teacher in 2004 at the Yoga Arts School in Byron Bay, Australia, after practising Ashtanga yoga for several years. The wealth of the teachers’ wisdom opened a door to philosophical investigation and practices such as pranayama and meditation, which I incorporates into my practice and teaching.
I completed my second teacher training in Ireland in 2007 with David Curtis from Dublin, who is a direct student of Maty Ezraty and Chuck Miller. I have also been practicing traditional Iyengar Yoga Yin yoga, training with Sarah Powers in London in 2008.
Very early in my yoga journey I became interested in the transformative aspects of Pranayama and Meditation. My passion for my own yoga journey allows me to integrate my experiences in my own practice before sharing it with my students; I firmly believe in self practice – including daily meditation, Pranayama (breathing techniques) and Asana (yoga postures).
I have been attending yoga retreats with Clive Sheridan, in his annual 3 week deep immersion in India
I am one of the original teachers with the Ekhart Yoga Team since they first established themselves in 2012, and I deliver full online classes.
“Yoga is a way to restore our lost wholeness, our integrity as complete human beings, by unifying the personality around a centre that is silent and unbounded.”
