Gian Renato Marchisio, yoga practitioner for more than twenty years, has a background as a teacher in Iyengar Yoga and Centered Yoga methods by Dona Hollemann, and has also been authorized to teach Ashtanga Yoga by Manju Pattabhi Jois, as well as by Sharath Jois: this path allowed him to develop a complete approach to practice, respectful of tradition but also attentive to the technical-anatomical aspects of the distribution of forces in the body to acquire stability in the flow through breathing.


Stefania Valbusa, Centered Yoga teacher by Dona Hollemann’s, is authorized by Sharath Jois to teach traditional Ashtanga Yoga. During her career, she also received from Kristina Karitinos-Ireland the certificate of recognition for teaching Ashtanga Yoga according to the teaching of Derek Ireland.
