My yoga journey...

“My yoga journey began in 2014, when I first walked into a studio in search of some much-needed peace and emotional support. What I found was so much more than a place to practice asanas (yoga postures). I discovered a world that was kind and accepting. Where I was able to connect with myself, as well as with a community of diverse individuals, who shared my interests in spirituality and personal growth.

Through my personal practice, I have come to know and appreciate myself for who I am, not only on my good days. I have grown in all aspects of my life, and have been able to make more conscious decisions, that are aligned with my purpose and deepest wishes in life. This has brought me to my mat, not only to learn but also to teach. I wish to share my life lessons as well as my experience of yoga with my students, to support them in creating a beautiful and authentic life for themselves.

Through yoga and meditation, we are able to turn inward and find a safe place where we can connect with our source of life, our creativity, our innermost being, our truth. When there is a deep connection to the body, when the mind is serene, the experience becomes spiritual. All fears melt away, and are replaced by a deep sense of gratitude and peace, a deep sense of who we truly are as spiritual beings.”

Why Yoga?

There are many reasons why I love yoga. I wanted to share some of them here for those of you looking to discover the beauty of this ancient practice:

Yoga is personal. It is an opportunity to know yourself on a deeper level. And while the yoga teacher is your guide, a good teacher will show you how to hear the whispers of your own heart. 

You create your very own experience according to the intention you bring to your practice. 

Yoga soothes the mind and body and is incredibly healing, whatever you may be going through. It teaches you how to access the resources you have within yourself.

Studio classes provide a wonderful opportunity to meet like-minded people and make new friends. The yoga community is friendly, open-hearted, and supportive of each other. 

Practicing yoga brings more strength and flexibility to your life, both on and off the mat. It helps you to feel grounded so that you may experience the fullness of an open heart and find more balance in your life. 

Yoga requires nothing of you. You don’t have to feel your best to step onto the mat. There is no requirement of age, beauty, height, weight, strength, flexibility, level of fitness or other limitations. Yoga is like a patient friend that is always there for you, ready to offer support. Come as you are and see what happens. It may surprise you. There is wisdom in both joy and sorrow, there is beauty in every moment of life, waiting to be discovered.

Testimonials

Whether you just want to unwind or feel more energized, whether you want to improve or just accept yourself, whether you’re already passionate about yoga or just curious about it, no matter where you are in your life journey, this is the place for you.

Caterina is a wonderful teacher who radiates warmth, empathy and gentleness that allows you to trust completely. To trust, let go and just let the experience enfold and unfold you. I cannot recommend it enough.
