I am a professional Italian musician, I play the piccolo in the Orquesta Filarmonica de Gran Canaria (Canary Islands, Spain).
I had been practicing Yoga for a long time...but I’d never really got the point until 2009, when I had to deal with an aggressive breast cancer. This difficult experience has been a gift in my life... and Yoga helped me SO much! From that moment on, I felt the deep desire to share Yoga with people dealing with (cancer or chronic) sickness... In 2012 I graduate as Yoga teacher (Sivananda) and in 2013 I did the life-changing Yoga of the Heart course with Nischala Joy Devi (Yoga for cardiac and cancer patients) .
Through Accessible Yoga with our beloved Jivana, Yoga for Amputee with Marsha Therese Danzig, further education courses and also thanks to Soul Therapy (a powerful healing meditation practice) with Arnie Vargas, I am refining my skills, keeping high inspiration in my own practice, as well as getting more and more confident!
Since January 2015 I am giving weekly Yoga classes in the nephrology department of Dr. Negrín hospital in Gran Canaria (where this photograph was taken). I also give private classes, and all my beloved students are wonderful masters to me.
In my opinion, the most important thing we may offer to our students is to be deeply inspired ourselves, and to be able to see the hidden perfection and wholeness in each of them.
This is the powerful, loving, healing power of Yoga to me.
