Hi beautiful souls,
I'm Vera, a certified Yoga and Aerial Yoga Teacher and a Reiki practitioner. I lived for about fifteen years in California, in San Diego, and it is there that I discovered my passion and love for Yoga. This passion has made me deepen the study of the discipline, both in the USA and in India, places where I have applied and learned various styles of yoga, including Hatha Yoga, Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Hot Yoga, Yoga Sculpt, Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga and Aerial Yoga, Meditation, Pranayama and Breathwork under the guidance of many wonderful teachers. These were all amazing experiences that have contributed to enriching my personal and professional background. With more than 2000 hours of teaching and Teachers Trainings, I am a lifelong student, first of all, and I continue to deepen the practice and the yoga discipline in different structures around the world. I have taught in San Diego, and as of recently I also teach in Italy and India. I conduct courses and private classes both in Italian and English and I teach in Yoga Teacher Training courses in Italy and India.
I completed my first Yoga Teacher Training in California, thus becoming a qualified teacher of this wonderful practice. At the beginning of 2016, specifically in San Diego, I specialized in Aerial Yoga, a yoga practice that involves the use of the hammock, and become a qualified teacher. Then, in 2017 I was in India, where I acquired the RYT500 and Yin Yoga TTC certification.
To me, Yoga means LOVE. First of all, love for yourself. This discipline helped me to love myself, to listen to my body, to open up, to feel centered and present with myself, with others, and with everything around me. In a word, more aware. Yoga is love at 360 degrees; we are one, we are all part of a single universe, a single breath, and every reality can teach us something. I teach from my heart, and I try to bring a sense of compassion and peace as I share the gift of yoga. I feel blessed and grateful to be able to share my love for Yoga and all its physical and mental benefits with others.
Professionally, before completely dedicating myself to this world, I worked in the Marketing, Communications and Software fields. I also earned Masters (MBA) and Doctoral (DBA) degrees with a dissertation entitled “Sports Consumer Behavior: Applying the Theory of Planned Behavior to Perceived Constraints and Motivators towards the Practice of Yoga “.
I love traveling, sharing, laughing and I always let my heart guide me. It is an honor for me to be able to practice, learn and share my passion and experience to inspire new yogis, just as my wonderful teachers did with me.
