My journey with yoga started slowly, as a practice that could help me release the stress of working in the film business. Also having a past as a rally driver, I rediscovered the power of focus and of active meditation, something that my brain was trained to do but was missing in the hectic rhythm of city life. Being of a very competitive nature, I learned that sometimes letting go of control is the right way to grow. Throughout the years I built the courage to pursue this path, realizing that I could actually pass on what I was learning, thus having my work reflect my values and bringing a piece of awareness and kindness into the world.
I take on every class with a light-hearted creative approach, focusing on vulnerability and encouraging the inner child to come out and play. Yoga should be a practice where our attention focuses inwards and where we can let ourselves be free of judgment towards the self and others. The mind in its natural relaxed state is still, which in turn brings balance and strength to our bodies. So leave all expectations to the door and let yourselves flow and experiment with your body, mind, and soul.
