I have started practicing yoga in 2002 in my late twenties when I was looking for something but I wasn't t sure exactly what.
I felt immediately at home, I found the whole yoga practice and philosophy not only fascinating and even mind blowing but also profoundly beneficial for my well being, giving me ideas, practice and tools for self care.
Since then I have practiced yoga in Rome, Leeds and Oxford (where I did my RTY 200 Yoga Alliance) with different teachers to whom I am thoroughly grateful for as without them I wouldn't be here. They all shared with me their passion to the yoga practice, a practice that enable to discover your body and mind in a new, fresh and direct way and why is important to keep on sharing it.
I have studied and worked many years as a researcher in Biology (PhDI in Immunology) therefore I m naturally interested in the science behind the yoga and its effects on the link of the muscular and nervous systems and how this could be used to improve our well-being.
I see the yoga system as an invaluable and evergreen self care practice, to rebalance body
and recenter the mind, helping us to expand our awareness to rediscover a sense of unity in ourselves.

I started my first Simply yoga class last October 2020 and have been going since then.
Daniela is a fantastic teacher, she is friendly warm and caring for everyone wanting to follow a Yoga practice. She always pay individual attention topple in the class. I really enjoy the class and always leave feeling calm and relaxed.
I am really happy to attend Simplyyoga. Daniela is a warm and welcoming teacher, who takes time to find out about you, and can give alternative versions of exercises to suit your needs. I have found my flexibility increasing and feel more toned. As well as the yoga exercise, she incorporates, breathing exercises, and finishing with relaxation. So at the end of the class I feel toned refreshed and calm.
Recently I experienced knee trouble, but didn’t want to loose the benefits of the yoga class. Therefore Daniela kindly took time to research chair yoga and developed alternative chair yoga exercises for me. The chair exercises were still effective at toning, without stress on the knees. Many thanks Daniela, I am so grateful to be able to continue with the benefits of your yoga class.
I feel so much fitter and mentally soothed afterwards, the instructions are caring and supportive.
