Michela primo piano

I walk the unique path of yoga since approximately ten years, when I attended my first class in Zurich. Already a few minutes after leaving the studio, I realized that yoga would be part of my life from that moment onwards, it felt like I had found a home. Until that day, only surfing clear waters had given me that feeling of oneness and deep connection.

I started teaching three years later when I completed my first Teacher Training (TT) at Airyoga in Zurich in (200-hr Yoga Alliance) with Prana Flow teacher Christine May, Michael Hamilton and Doug Keller. I attended a TT (75 hr) with Max Strom, author of “A life worth breathing” and an inspiring 100 hr Vinyasa Krama Yoga TT with tantric influenced teacher Rae Indigo. In July 2015 I completed a 300 hr Hatha Advanced Teacher Training with my teacher Stephen Thomas, reaching 500hr Yoga Alliance recognised training. I work with Stephen since 2011 and I am very thankful to him, especially for introducing me and handing me down his deep acknowledge in Pranayama and Meditation. Then I got the chance to dive deep into the magic of yoga with an advanced teacher training with Ana Forrest in November 2015. Above everything else that I learned from her, Ana thought me to tap into my Spirit and to dig deeper.

I constantly continue my training with workshops and retreats, especially in the Hatha tradition, with many great teachers I am deeply thankful to, like Katchie Ananda, Chris Chavez, Nico Luce e Meghan Currie. Another important part of my yoga path is Vipassana Meditation (silent meditation retreats).

Over the past two years, teaching yoga has become my main activity. Previously I worked as journalist, graphic designer/photographer and translator. I still write and translate as a freelancer. My love for words, for transmitting thoughts and energy with the proper sentences, pushes me always further to find better ways to guide my students into their own yoga journey. Teaching is for me a very deep commitment and even if I try to keep things light, I am very conscious about it and try to improve my teaching all the time.
