I bow to the feet of Vanda Scaravelli who taught me to be sustained from the “ground” and to walk in the “new”.

Yoga is like a river that, for thousands of years, many streams and many springs feed along its course towards the great ocean, however, the first source of this river lies within each of us, deeply hidden. Often, only when we are lapped by the great river of tradition thirst for true knowledge is awakened. Tradition is water to quench our thirst and nourish our being but the true seed is in us and that’s what has to unfold and grow toward the sun.

I am a direct long time student of Vanda Scaravelli (author ofAwakening the Spine, 1991) she studied yoga with the personal tutition of B.K.S.Iyengar and then of T.K.V.Desikchar (both in the lineage of Krishnamacharya), she was also a very close friend of Jiddu Krishnamurty.

I started to study with Vanda in 1983 at the age of 26 having regular individual lessons until 1999. I was Vanda’s student during the last 17 years of her life, it deeply changed my life and practice. Now I continue to explore and share the teachings I have received from Vanda maintaining their simplicity and freedom. I teach yoga because I am happy to share the beauty of a practice that reaches you in a natural way.

I was born and live in Florence where I actually run my yoga studio in the center of town. I have been teaching classes, private lessons, workshops in Italy and abroad since 1987.
