Sara Selicati - Our Yoga Teacher
Hatha Yoga teach us to know ourselves better, to discover our limitations, to respect them and sometimes to go beyond them. Through the execution of the asana we display our fears, our representation of the outside world, setting aside our ego while searching ourselves. It's a gradual process. Those who approach it for a short time will receive physical beneficial effects such as a better posture and a more fluid respiration. But those who embrace it as a life style will begin a journey that starts discovering their bodies and heads towards the horizon of their self consciousness.
During our week we will explore the asana, from the upright positions to leaning forward, from twisting to leaning back. It's a sensorial discovery of the body from its tips to its centre.
Lessons are taught in Italian, English and Sanskrit, on request. They include posture corrections and demonstrations.
YOGA AS AN INTROSPECTIVE JOURNEY
I started practicing Yoga by chance, when ten years ago a friend of mine told me to and then I started my inner revolution. Each of us begins a personal journey. Yoga is a process of introspection that changes our point of view and let us bring out our intimate and authentic self.
Francesca, simply “La Franca“ at the stove, was born in Milan from roman parents who gave her the passion for taste and the curiosity for recipes, developing over time the most important sense when it comes to cooking: the feeling for the right proportions.
She graduated from the Alto Palato School in Milan, headed by Terry Sarcina, where she learned the ultimate tecniques for the preparation of dishes. She also attended a number of classes on chocolate preparation by Alberto Farinelli, Maitre Chocolatier of Perugina.
In the latest years, she approached the world of natural cuisine, learning from the best professionals the tecniques and recipes of raw food, vegan and vegetarian cuisines, to satisfy the requests of those who decide to eat in a more healthy way, in accordance with the needs of their bodies and the environment.
