I met yoga Iyengar during the university period, more than twenty years ago, transmitted “pure and rigorous” from the teachings of Christian Pisano landed in Italy thanks to the invitation of Renato Turla to whom I also owe the enlightening meeting with Dona Holleman , acute and expert teacher.
From 1986 to today I have followed and completed 2 instructor courses directed by C. Pisano, to as many as I took part as assistant: in Bergamo, in the first yoga center founded by me (1994) and in Lyon.
I joined my teacher for 2 years without interruption in France, England, America, Italy during seminars, intensives, conventions, megaclass directed by him, as well as in India at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute (RIMYI) where I took part in the courses “General Classes” and “Intensives”.
I founded with Christian Pisano the “Institut de yoga Iyengar de Nice”, a renowned training school for Iyengar teachers directed today by Pisano himself.
I graduated (Introductory level two) in 2006.
Currently I organize courses and seminars at the centers I founded, where I host internationally renowned teachers.
Iyengar Yoga takes its name from the method created by Master B.K.S. Iyengar.
In over seventy years of dedication to yoga, Master Iyengar, has deepened the study and the effects of Asanas (positions) and Pranayama (breath control).
The alignment, the symmetry, the precision in the execution, the sequence and the duration of the positions, are the peculiar characteristics of this method that acts on a physical, emotional and mental level.
From children and adolescents who need a vigorous and dynamic practice to learn the concentration and harmonious development of the body.
From adults who with a constant practice reduce tension, prevent problems in the spine, joints and internal organs and counteract the aging of the body.
From the elderly whose practice is aimed at keeping the muscles active, to mobilize the joints and to keep the mind active but still.
Long years of rigorous study have given Iyengar a profound knowledge of the beneficial effects of each Asana on both the physical and mental levels and their infinite combinations according to the various needs.
In order to make everyone participate in the benefits of yoga, Iyengar was the first to invent the use of tools such as blocks of wood,
blankets, belts, cushions, stools that allow students to stay in one position longer, to reap the benefits at deeper levels.
In this way even the weakest physically can remain long enough to have the desired effects on the organs
