Ashtanga Yoga) and is registered at Yoga Alliance as E-RYT 500hr.
Giulia has been teaching Ashtanga Yoga since 2013 in Belluno and in the province, Belluno is the city where she lives and symbol of the Dolomites; in 2018 she founded Ashtanga Belluno ASD together with some colleagues and friends, opening a space dedicated to practice, since then she leads daily guided classes, Mysore classes and workshops at the association’s Shala.
Over the years she has practiced with some of the best Italian and international Ashtanga teachers, including Gabriele Severini, Anne Nuotio, Manju Jois, Susanna Finocchi, Riccardo Gherardi and Ty Landrum; since 2017 she regularly follows the teachings of Ty Landrum, finding in them the most intense and profound approach towards this practice.
In her personal practice and during lessons, she turns her attention to the ability to keep her postures stable and rooted, keeping her breath free to move and flow, thus obtaining a general feeling of openness and receptivity.
She accompanies her asana practice to mindfulness meditation, an excellent tool to bring the search for space and awareness, in body and mind, to deeper levels, together with the practice of Yoga.
In her classes she tries to bring students to develop a personal and non-dogmatic path, using the different techniques to live more serenely, both when climbing on the mat, and when returning to daily commitments, learning day after day not to get overwhelmed and distort from them.

“Good” is a ROUND word. When a child says, “it’s GOOD,” he tells of a world untouched, pure, essential.
“You’re good,” means: “I can trust, I feel safe.” This is true for humans, but also for nourishment.
A child is master of the essential innate ideas. Adults need to relearn to feel, to savor the taste of food connected to the taste of life.
You Are Here, and on this table you receive the privilege of that ‘good’ that has the taste of childhood.
Close your eyes for a moment, while you perceive the food that from your mouth diffuses energy and pleasure in every part of you.
Organic, for what we produce, it is truth, not a definition of fashion: we cultivate without using herbicides or pesticides with an arduous daily work between the rows.
Grow for us means supporting and not interrupting the cycle of life.
This food walks only a few steps to get from the garden to our kitchen.
Yes, this food is Good, because it made with love, because it is good for your health and at the same time does not harm anyone; to get on your plate it does not exploit other creatures, did not generate suffering, and does not bring pain residues, but joy.
It is a harmonious food, whole, in harmony with creation, with Mother Earth.
This food is the present but also the future toward which to aim. The deep aspiration is that the philosophy of mindful eating, respecting all living beings will always expand more, generating virtuous circles.
Listen to this food, it talks emitting happy vibrations.
We do not choose the easy way out, we like the commitment.
We want a full life that tastes Good”.

WHOLY DAYS, WHOLY LIFE. Our invitation to come join us is TURN YOUR HOLIDAYS INTO WHOLIDAYS.
Quoting BKS Iyengar: “The word ‘holistic’ is very fashionable nowadays, and one often hears people speak of ‘holistic’medicine. The word ‘holistic’ contains the word ‘whole’, which is the true meaning of ‘healthy’. When there is ‘wholeness’ of body, mind and self, this wholeness becomes holy. Holy means ‘divine’ and without divinity you cannot truly speak of holistic practice or of holistic medicine.When a person connects the soul to the skin and the skin to the soul, when there is a tremendous communion between the cells of the body and the cells of the soul, then that is holistic or integrated practice, because the whole of the human system has been integrated into a single unit in which body, mind, intelligence, consciousness and soul come together.Though tremendous advances has been made by science, medicine and psychology over many centuries, no one can define a frontier between body and mind or between mind and soul. They cannot be separated. They are intermingled, interconnected, united. Where there is mind, there is body, where there is body there is soul; where there is soul there is mind. Yet our everyday experience is of a great separation between these three. When we are engaged in mental activity, we are no longer aware of the body. When we are involved with the body, we lose sight of the soul.”
Yoga is a way to move towards integration. With us you will experience it.
