Karmelina started practicing yoga in 2009 in Florence, where she was exposed to a variety of styles of practice: hatha, kundalini, and asthanga. Her enthusiasm and wish to learn brought her to deepen her knowledge of asthanga through daily practice, studying of the ancient yoga texts and of eastern philosophies and the chanting of mantras.
Karmelina teaches ashthanga vinyasa yoga according to the teachings of Sri K. Pattabhi and Sharath Jois. Her classes is based on the traditional Sanskrit count and on both verbal and manual adjustments. Karmelina focuses on accurately conveying to students the method of ashtanga yoga and inspiring with her presence and practice all who engage in the journey of yoga.
