Yoga Teacher and Holistic Bodyworker
Federica is a Yoga Alliance certified yoga instructor, certified biodynamic craniosacral therapist, shamanic healer,
massage therapist, and certified Gestalt counselor. She has been practicing and studying Mysore Ashtanga, Iyengar and other forms of yoga since 2002. She began practicing vipassana meditation in 2004, and uses it as a very important tool to help others gain mindfulness.
The beauty of her approach is rooted in the variety and knowledge that she has gained through her life journey. She has studied conscious movement, 5 rhythms dance, dance therapy and bioenergetics. From all her experience she has developed a unique approach to body-mind-heart medicine and body-soul movement. She also incorporates tantra sacred sexuality into some of her work, especially with women, empowering them on their journey through different life phases.
“Federica is an amazing woman – alive, present, beautiful, passionate, kind and strict, wise and with a touch of humour. I bow to you with my heart.”
“The week with Federica exceeded all my expectations. Being a therapist and coach myself, I can say that’s not an easy thing to do. One of the most inspiring women I met in my life.
Thanks from my heart !!”
Els, United Kingdom
