15 April (Day 1) I missed being with Luca and Leonardo on our first night as 4 but I was discharged this evening and Leonardo welcomed me behind the hospital doors with the biggest smile. It hit me as we were driving home that we are now a family…
Being active has been a common thread since being a baby. I used to cartwheel and fall into splits around the house wearing my favourite leotard. I remember being so pleased with myself when I beat the fastest boy in my class during sprints. I was a young frequenter of the gym, taking intimidatingly routined aerobics classes and LBT sessions with glaring techno music playing.
My love affair with yoga started in 2009 in a hot yoga room, when my practice really became part of a healthy routine. I had a full time job but I started working on Saturdays at the reception of my local studio at the time. I didn’t mind working 6 days a week; I loved being surrounded by the yoga community and in exchange I could practice as much as I wanted.
I considered a teacher training some 3 years later but the right opportunity for me came along in 2015 when I trained at Fierce Grace Yoga with Michele Pernetta. Doing my 200hrs teaching set sequences, helped me to focus on the bodies and on the students’ practice without having to think about sequencing.
My natural inclination to practice movement with breath and exploration of the body through intelligent and creative sequencing, led me to deepen my knowledge in Vinyasa yoga with Jason Crandell, with whom I recently completed my 300hrs.
