Born in 1979, in Tuscany, Italy, movement and the body as an instrument to create harmony have always been an integral part of Gaia's life. She studied classical, modern and contemporary dance from 1987 to 2003. In 2006 she graduated at the University of Florence with a degree in Communications, Majoring in Multimedia and Linguistics. Her relationship with yoga began in 2008 while trying to find solution to stress and anxiety. That search pushed her to expand her knowledge and experience with different styles of practice, including Hatha yoga, Acro Yoga & Ashtanga Vinyasa.
In 2011 she studied with Tribe completing the level 1 yoga teacher training. In the same year she studied Yoga for kids and Families with Rainbow Kids Yoga in Rome Italy. In 2014 she completed her level 2 training with Tribe. In 2015 she was a teacher assistant on two Tribe level 1 trainings and following that became a primary teacher on the Tribe teaching team. She has since taught on 3 Tribe one month yoga teacher training courses.
" The Yoga path teaches me that every individual has the power to evolve physically, mentally and spiritually. In the practice I offer, whether it be rigorous or gentle, I invite my students to listen to their needs, respect their limits and cultivate personal goals, so the practice becomes a reflection of each individual. What matters is not so much 'what' we are doing but 'how' we are doing, and if we are present with ourselves or not. My teaching style emphasises body awareness and alignment in a dynamic way, focusing the attention on cultivating sensitivity, honesty and concentration on the mat and in life. I feel the ancient practice of Yoga teaches us to go beyond the limits of our physical body and ego, to embrace a wholeness and oneness that we are all part of "
For more than 5 years Gaia has been teaching on a regular basis and is teacher and co- founder at Associazione Kanda.
