Niccolo

Instructor

Currently enrolled in a YogaTeacher Training at the Himalayan School, Niccolò’s practice combines his love for body movement and asanas with a desire for self awareness and breathing exercises, pranayama. Niccolò has been studying yoga for more than 10 years focusing on Integral Ashtanga Yoga as taught by Lino Miele and his followers, on the Himalayan tradition of Hatha Yoga, and on Ashtanga flow. His classes are a unique experience thanks to moments of meditation, massage, breathing exercises – pranayama-, and his warm and welcoming personality. Practitioners learn an integral practice that awakens the body thanks to the asanas, creates breath awareness thanks to pranayama, and offers an important tool for intellectual introspection. Niccolò loves the countryside, nature, hiking, climbing, and spending time outside, in nature, and with his animals. At Radici Yoga he teaches a modified version of the first Integral Ashtanga Yoga series and Ashtanga Flow and, during his classes, he also offers moments of guided meditation, pranayama, and guided relaxation.

Livia

Instructor

I’m a certified instructor in Power Vinyasa and Advanced Bhakti Prema Yoga. I have long practiced traditional styles of yoga such as Hatha, Asthanga and Iyengar which have provided me with a solid knowledge in different physical and mental areas and have allowed me to create a Vinyasa style that is grounded in the roots of Yoga. I love to study, and I am always improving myself and seeking inspiration through courses and workshops around the world. I am finishing the advanced 300-hour Rasa Yoga specialization in Bhakti Flow, a modality that combines Mantras, Mudras, Mythology, Pranayamas and Biomechanics, and also another training in “Awakening Somatic Intelligence” that is focused on Functional Applied Anatomy, Art of Vinyasa Instruction and Somatics. I seek to build a fluid and dynamic lesson, a fusion of Form and Flow without losing the essence of Yoga while offering personal variations to all levels of practice and physical abilities. My Vinyasa style has a continuous flow with moments of stillness to deepen into the postures and our subtle body, always cultivating the importance of breathing. I use props to improve student practice
