The tradition is approached with deep respect and that attitude is applied to each practice. However, our approach is not dogmatic. The intention is to awaken the traditional spirituality as a form of personal psychological growth. Consciousness begins here and ... who knows where it will end?

Gauri has created a unique pedagogical system for the training of Yoga Teachers. With her pedagogy approach, she has transformed the method and practice of teaching: design of programs; organisation of classes, communication skills, class environments; how to teach; specific vocabulary and psychological evaluation.
At present he is devoted to the practice and diffusion of meditation in small groups and teacher training courses, where he freely teaches his personal commitment to this ancestral practice from a human point of view.
I discovered that I enjoyed sharing all that I was learning with my students in my classes with them.
And that's where I am, practicing and integrating yoga into my life as best I can and sharing it with students and also learning from them. It is a joy to have this opportunity to offer and share yoga.
I am very proud to share my teaching with the students in classes and in training courses.
At first, my motivation was to know, from within, this beautiful way of life; over time, I have been increasingly interested in the possibility of transmitting the knowledge acquired, continuing my learning through the development of each of the people who come to practice and enjoy yoga, this path of self-knowledge.
