Sara will guide you through Vinyasa practices and in-depth study of subtle physiology, to
understand our nature through the study of prana.

I created the online school “La Scimmia Yoga” in 2012 offering an initial Vinyasa Yoga class for beginners. Since then the project has grown hosting 7 other teachers and different styles of yoga as well as paths dedicated to Ayurveda, Vedic philosophy and Meditation.

I started practicing Yoga in response to a strong need for physical and mental well-being. Yoga entered my life little by little and, not only put me back on the path of balance, but opened me to a new way of living and rejoicing in life. I teach Yoga to share the enormous transformational power that this millennia-old science has. I have lived, studied and taught in Mexico, Indonesia, Taiwan, India, Spain, Holland and Italy. I started through the teachings of Ellen de Jonge and now have the honor of being able to study directly with her teacher: Yogarupa Rod Stryker.
In 2022 I published with Mondadori my fourth book, “Yoga for Healing.”
