While we often search for the destination, it’s in the journey that we learn so my journey, like most, started very different than how I anticipated it would turn out. 

Born and raised in southern Italy, I started as a child studying music; because of my insecure character, I never imagined that one day, almost by chance, I would start dancing and that this “meeting” eventually would completely changed my life. 

I dropped out of university because I felt this “path” imposed by society was not mine so I suddenly left my hometown, my family and moved to Rome in order to pursue my dream: become a dancer!

I was too determined to succeed, I was “feeling” it somehow; so I started my professional career as a dancer at the age of twenty and carried on an international performing activity dancing with ensemble of Imperial Russian Ballet, Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, Wiener Volksoper, National Theater in Belgrade, National Opera of Olomouc, National Theater of Sibiu, etc. touring all over Italy, Spain, Serbia, Germany, Romania, Czech Republic, Japan, South Korea.

I approached GYROTONIC® Method because of a knee problem in 2007 and to improve flexibility, then in 2015, after have been practicing constantly the GYROTONIC® Method for about 8 years, I started my journey to become a GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® instructor, studying in Rome with Master Trainer Pietro Gagliardi, who eventually became my mentor.

At the same time I started deepening my Yoga practice, reading more about body/mind connections and spiritual philosophy.

My enthusiasm, my desire to share these practices with others and the passion for travelling, led me to move and share my passion in Asia, where I stayed for about a year: I fulfilled another of my childhood dream.

I was a successful instructor in different pilates and fitness centers in Tokyo, I was dancing and teaching ballet, I couldn't complain at all about my earnings and savings, but I was unhappy: too much stress, inhumane working hours with the pressure to live in a society where you are successful only if you make lot of money.

At that time work and money were the only things that matter: I was empty. 


Everything changed basically in one night, when in a pub in Tokyo, by chance I met people who spoke Spanish and I realized that Japan was not the right place for me; I needed a radical change, to get back into my own skin and detach from material possessions.


Back to Europe, I stumbled upon Ashtanga Yoga and fully immersed myself into a devoted practice, I met Vairagya Ranko (a disciple of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, Sharath Jois and authorized KPJAYI level II teacher) in Belgrade. 

I entered his Shala full of my ego, but he widened my mind and helped reveal what yoga truly is and he was a great inspiration for my practice, since then, I’ve continued to draw inspiration from a daily visit to the mat.

My will to improve and to learn more about Yoga and its philosophy, made me decide to travel and study in India; I met Guru Ramesh Sheety (a disciple of BNS Iyengar) in Mysore, I studied Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, adjustments, yoga philosophy, anatomy and yoga diet.

I continued travelling, studying, practicing and sharing my knowledge and experience in many contries: Indonesia, China, Hong Kong, Cambodia, Vietnam, Spain, Serbia.
