Giulia is a soulful person: her empathy and deep respect for every human being allow her teaching to be always different, to suit everyone's need, expectation and pace. After studying Philosophy in Italy and Spain, she moved to London to attend a master course in Contemporary Art Theory at Goldsmiths. While in London, she joined a Hatha yoga class and broke into tears: she understood there was something that needed to be explored further. Her curiosity took her to India, where she traveled for three months and started to study the ancient texts of the Eastern philosophy. After staying in an Ashram studying and practising yoga and meditation in the heart of Himalayan Yoga, Rishikesh, she came back to London and trained in 2012 with YogaLondon.
She then continued her training in 2013 with British Wheel of Yoga and she got recognised 500-hours, Level 4 Yoga teacher qualification, the highest recognition in the UK. Indebted to this training, Giulia undestood got a more safe and wise approach of the physical practice and a more in-depth experience of the power of Pranayama. 
Furthermore, her interest in meditation took her to practice 10 days silent meditation Vipassana, a Buddhist practice which is the mother of modern mindfulness. You can read her experience here. While in London, she taught yoga to a variety of students from different age and needs: she was teaching to over 60s for AgeWellUK, to the youth team of West Ham football team, in various gyms and dedicated studios. In 2013, she started her new journey: studying Philosophical Counseling at renowned SICoF of Turin, Italy.
She will soon become a certified Insight Yoga teacher with Sarah Powers in May 2016.
