I approached yoga out of necessity, after becoming a mother. I immediately realized that it was not only gymnastics, but a real discipline capable of involving every layer of being. Yoga changed me, it was love at first sight, so much so that this passion became my job and my lifestyle. Practicing has allowed me to know myself deeply, to react to failures and to be grateful for success. Teaching allows me to give and receive at the same time. I love the undeniable fact that practice starts from the physical body, increasing its flexibility and strength, to make our being everything, strong and flexible.

I started practicing Ashtanga Vinyasa in January 2016, for two years it was my only daily practice. I watched my body change day after day, movement after movement, and my mind calm down, starting to respond by no longer traveling aimlessly. Ashtanga in particular, taught me how much freedom there is in discipline, and how much dedication and constancy pays off, not just on the mat, of course.

In mid-2018, I listened to a voice in my head that became more and more deafening: I wanted to become a teacher, with the intention of making my whole life a yogic life. I finished my first 200-hour Ashtanga intensive in August, in September of the same year I started working. I feel like I have chosen yoga at the same time. I am passionate, I live each lesson with the same emotion as the first one. I practice Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Rocket Vinyasa and Yin Yoga, and I teach Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Yin Yoga, different names and styles of the same thing, of yoga, of the path that once undertaken, is never given up .

As soon as I stepped foot in this place, my heart leapt, clearly this does not everywhere. City ZEN is a unique and beautiful place.

It is a living place, pulsating thanks to all the people who are part of it. At City ZEN, the student can “have fun” by choosing between different practices, and the teacher can express himself freely.

I am grateful and happy to be part of this group of such heterogeneous and valuable teachers and to teach here the discipline that was my first love, my approach to practice. I love this City ZEN, it is a place of high walls and spacious ceilings, whose vibrant energy expands even beyond its windows.
