Simona’s journey began in 1990 when she started practicing meditation in her home town in Italy. She then traveled through Europe and in the Irish countryside, she explored other types of meditation and started practicing yoga.
Her interest in yoga, meditation and alternative healing took her to Asia where she took her first Thai Massage Course in northern Thailand in 1997 and later, she immersed herself in a different meditation technique in Bali.
She moved between Europe and Asia, working as a massage therapist in Ireland and in France, while studying other massage styles and alternative therapies and she kept studying Thai Massage in Chiang Mai and in Bangkok.
She opened a Thai Massage school and Yoga center in Dublin and, always in need of a yoga teacher and having years of yoga practice herself, she decided to take an ashtanga teacher training course in Edinburgh and she started teaching in Ireland, at her own center as well as promoting “yoga at your workplace” by teaching classes at different companies.
She took Reiki courses to a master level and she continued studying with ITEC for a Holistic Massage and Anatomy Teacher Training Certification, which had her teaching anatomy in a college in Ireland.

WHAT WILL I LEARN
Taoism teaches about the harmony between Yin and Yang, the interplay of masculine and feminine energy. Yin and Yang are at play in every aspect of life.
The fast paced world we live in is dominated by Yang energy and our yoga practice is also often a fast yang practice, aiming at building muscle, while this teacher training aims at developing a Yin practice where we bring nurturing into our life, starting from our own practice. Yin Yoga gives us the tool to develop Yin energy to be able to bring balance to our life.
Yin Yoga works on deeper connective tissue, ligaments, tendons and fascia. In this training we will go in depth into each of the poses that make up Yin Yoga. We will practice Yin pranayama to balance our energy and some forms of meditation to help us tune into ourselves and move into stillness.
We will look at the difference between Yin Yoga and other styles of Yoga; at how sustained holding of the postures in Yin Yoga works on the connective tissue.
Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with set asanas that are ‘held’ for longer periods of time, which allows us to apply gentle pressure and compression on our tissues. The whole point of Yin practice is to relax the muscles as much as possible, to target the deeper connective tissues - especially fascia.
Yin Yoga is based on TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), and therefore works with meridians and acupressure points targeting our vital organs and balancing the 5 Elements: Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal.
Yin Yoga brings our focus more inwards, and can be an excellent bridge towards meditation, or can become meditation itself.
This 100-Hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training gives a lot of importance to the physical and anatomical perspective of Yin Yoga.
Anatomy classes will be followed by explanation of meridians in Chinese Medicine and how the practice works on energy channels
