L'ESSENZIALE

The precious dressing for a healthy life

L'ESSENZIALE is what I have the privilege to live every day of my life and that I try to share with the people I meet: a simple life, love for nature, passion for healthy food and care for body and mind. There are three precious ingredients that are always present in my life: YOGA that leads me to my personal growth, the practice of TRADITIONAL THAI MASSAGE that allows me to enter a peaceful state of mind and the EXTRA VIRGIN AND ORGANIC OLIVE OIL  from Sicily which besides keeping me anchored to my origins nourishes my body and keeps me healthy and strong!

HATHA YOGA

An indispensable practice to become aware of the innumerable potentialities of body and mind, to recognize one's limits and learn to respect and love them.

Hatha yoga courses for adults, seniors, for pregnancy and postpartum.

... And in summer ... Yoga in Nature!

TRADITIONAL THAI MASSAGE

An extremely relaxing treatment coming from India that aims to restore the natural flow of the life energy (Prana) in the body.  Thai massage works on the energy lines which run through the body, can break blockades and help to restore a general well-being.

ORGANIC EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL FROM SICILY

The extra virgin and organic olive oil that my family has been producing for three generations in the Valle del Belice (Sicily) is now available also in Switzerland!

 The oil is made with love and passion, respecting the land, its fruits and the people who work it.

I was born in Sicily and I always carry in my heart the beautiful colors and perfumes of this wonderful land, the warmth of the sun and people and the depth of the sea. Since I was a child I have had the good fortune to admire the majesty and strength of the olive trees that surround our house in the countryside and to appreciate its fruits. The toasted bread with olive oil, salt and oregano ("pane cunzato") is a Sicilian delicacy that I always carry with me and that I am happy to make known outside Sicily.
My first encounter with yoga and Thai Traditional Massage was during my one-year stay in Bangkok, Thailand. There I took my first yoga course and attended a Thai Traditional Massage course. And thanks to these two sister disciplines for the first time I found myself face to face with my body, listening to him and observing him. I was fascinated by the innumerable potentials that the body hides and a little frightened by the physical and mental limits that until then I had feared to recognize. So I decided to continue this path of growth and, returning to Italy, I followed the talented yoga teacher Stefania Coronetta who was my unforgettable guide in my first steps towards an increasingly conscious yoga practice. At the same time, I also followed another Thai Traditional Massage course with Maestro Pasquale Augello further deepening the study of the energy lines that pass through the human body and which is also talked about in yoga philosophy.
After my move to Switzerland I decided to follow the 500 hour teacher training course at the Free School of Hatha Yoga in Milan, under the guidance of Maestro Maurizio Morelli. During the three intense years of study with Morelli

the practice of yoga has gradually transformed into an indispensable lifestyle.
The refinement of Thai Traditional Massage followed spontaneously given the strong link between the two disciplines. I then followed a third Thai Traditional Massage course with Ivan Medici from which I learned how the practice of yoga can be harmoniously integrated with the holistic massage from South East Asia.

Later I obtained the degree of yoga teacher for pregnancy at the Samadhi School in Florence and I attended the MBSR (Mindful Based Stress Reduction programm) that allowed me to deepen my meditation practice.
My path of growth is not yet finished nor do I think it will ever end because every day I discover something new and wonderful about me, my body and its close relationship with the mind. After the teacher diploma I was lucky enough to meet many other yoga teachers and to practice different and interesting styles. I practiced with Gabriella Cella, Andrea Boni, Jacopo Ceccarelli, Anna Inferrera, Perumal Koshi, Ezgi Fischer, Mark Holzmann, Tara Judelle, and to each of them I am infinitely grateful for giving added value to my work and my personal practice.
What about oil? that remains the indispensable ingredient of each of my dishes and today I am happy to make it known to anyone who wants to experience its countless and invaluable benefits!
