Nice to meet you, I am Paola!

Since my first encounter with yoga, I was fascinated by the sensation I felt after the practice: I was peaceful and quiet but energized at the same time.

My mind was focused and awake but not restless…

Practising yoga became a way to deepen the connection with myself, observe my thinking patterns and explore the body through mindful movement.

The practice has always been there for me and helped me re-center through the challenging work in the corporate world and a long distance relantionship.

my passion for traveling

Travelling to open my mind

I felt the call to start my 500 hr teacher training to bring this gift of re-centering to others and deepen my practice.

When my then boyfriend, now husband Giovanni moved to Amsterdam, I followed my dream to spend time in Asia. I resigned from my job, hopped on a plane and spent two months in India, between Goa & Kerala, where I deepened my practice and explored the ancient wisdoms of yoga.

Travelling to explore new places and experiencing the beauty of nature has been a constant inspiration to me and I try to bring this into my classes.

“Yoga is about clearing away whatever is in us that prevents our living in the most full and whole way. With yoga, we become aware of how and where we are restricted – in body, mind, and heart – and how gradually to open and release these blockages. As these blockages are cleared, our energy is freed. We start to feel more harmonious, more at one with ourselves. Our lives begin to flow or we begin to flow more in our lives.”

Yin & Yang and the power of storytelling

I moved to Amsterdam on January 1st, 2018: it was truly a new beginning! The decision was taken: I would have dedicated my time to teach, becoming a full time teacher.

Naturally drawn to an active of Vinyasa, I was intrigued to understand how to create balance in life, so I started exploring the Yin practice and dove into Traditional Chinese Medicine.

I love reading books and blending philosophy and story telling into my teaching: in my classes you will hear quotes, stories and themes derived from ancient wisdom, TCM and modern mindfulness inspirations.
