I was born in the French part of Switzerland, but lived most of my life in Milan, Italy where I attended the Scala Theater for four years with the desire of becoming a professional dancer. When I got married, I ended up moving with my husband to the US and, although I have always loved to dance, became passionate about yoga.
I have been practicing yoga since 2009 and completed my teacher training at Mt. Yoga in February of 2017.
My main teacher has been Helena Bray who teaches Yogazander at Mt. Yoga.
I have also taken several workshops with different teachers because
I believe strongly yoga is a never ending learning experience.
In the meantime, I have enjoyed the opportunity to assist Helena in yoga classes for seniors at both the Poway Senior Center and the Scripp's Ranch Library. In May 2017 I completed my Silver Age Yoga Certification program through SAYCO (Silver Age Yoga Community Outreach).
On a personal level, practicing yoga has helped me tremendously in my life.
As a stay at home mom of two very active boys, I have had the privilege to spend much time raising them. Yoga has helped me in the different challenging stages of
their growth. I have learned to be more patient and to love them unconditionally and I am appreciative and grateful to give back through my own teaching.
