WE LIVE AND WORK BOTH IN GERMANY: FRANKFURT & GÖTTINGEN AND IN ITALY: ROME.
WE OFFER WORKSHOPS, CLASSES, PERSONAL TRAINING AND COACHING ON A DEEPER, VERY PEACEFUL LEVEL.
OUR PASSION IS TO IGNITE YOUR EMOTIONAL FREEDOM, AWAKEN YOUR LOVE OF LIFE AND STRENGTHEN YOUR INNER BALANCE.
WE BELIEVE THAT HAPPINESS, INNER PEACE AND FULFILLMENT IS ALREADY WITHIN ALL OF US.
IF YOU ARE READY, WE ARE TOO!
Thankfully, due to my various job(s), the world has become a home for me and I enjoy life wherever I am.
Sleepless nights and challenging conditions
I am grateful for working as a flight attendant for Europe's one and only five-star-airline ;-).
I love my job, it allows me to explore the whole world!
However, the glamorous five-star-lifestyle is often confronted with reality. Flight crews need to be prepared to take action in emergency situations at any given time - no matter how tired they are. It can be quite stressful dealing with time differences and climate changes, often working irregular hours, late nights and eating under unhealthy conditions - literally on the go.
Working under these extreme conditions requires extra care of the body, mind and soul on a regular basis. Yoga, Meditation and Usui Reiki helps me to recharge my batteries and stay balanced in a wonderfully holistic way. It has become an important part of my life to stay strong, recover and relax.
My passion for sports with a lot of injuries
I love hiking, skiing, and I’ve played Volleyball for 22 years. Due to a series of injuries, my athletic passion was put on hold. I had to recover from my injuries and start from zero.
Vinyasa Yoga and BoxingYoga™ helped me to recover much faster and to regain physical strength. I felt the physical improvement right away, and this motivated me to do more and more!
It is my dedication to help people find their passion for Yoga and BoxingYoga™.
Being a mum
The most important gift in my life was the birth of our son in 2016.
I was so sure that for me - the sporty girl and passionate yogini - giving birth would be easy and natural. I felt so confident that everything will be alright.
I even continued giving skiing lessons up until the fifth month of pregnancy.
But things turned out differently, with life-threatening complications during birth and an emergency surgery.
I was so weak like never before in my life, and it was not easy for me to accept this at first. It took me two weeks to be strong enough to hold my son in my arms.
There are good reasons WHY I am telling you all about this
There are unpredictable storms in life and Yoga often was the tool that brought me back - physically, mentally and also emotionally!
I am truly happy and grateful to walk the Yoga path, and every step onto the mat makes me more aware of what is really important in life.
I love sharing my experiences and would like to be a source of motivation for any wind or storm in your life.

I am an Italian Navy Officer and a proud BoxingYoga™ Coach.
I have a lot of interests and hobbies (photography, books and documentaries to mention a few). Whenever I can, I love being in the nature, either seas or mountains. I am fascinated by the contact with the wild side of nature, and thanks to my profession I have had the opportunity to travel to most corners of the world.
I got into BoxingYoga™ thanks to Annika.
I have practiced different sports, including martial arts (karate) and self-defense (Krav Maga) throughout my whole life, and I am always trying to stay fit and healthy.
As a captain in the navy, I am often deployed abroad, but usually training facilities are not available. Therefore, I was looking for something I could perform regularly whenever I had time and which would keep me strong and fit without requiring any specific equipment.
Once I tried BoxingYoga™, I knew it was right for me!
A ship is like a small “floating village” crossing the seas, linking different people and cultures together, but when you are deployed for long periods of time without getting ashore, life quickly becomes a daily routine of work.
BoxingYoga™ has given me the possibility to break this routine, to teach and train in a group which contributes to the feeling of being part of a family. I can offer my crew an opportunity to train regularly now, with discipline and method, wherever we are.
I like teaching, passing on my knowledge and experience to others and wanted to become a BoxingYoga™ Coach so that I could use my skills to train people, physically and mentally, to help them get to know themselves better, and find their own motivation to improve, as:
"the real challenge is always between You and Yourself!".
