Andrea & Elisa, two sisters whose shared journey has blossomed into a harmonious blend of knowledge and practice. With a combined experience of over 20 years as dedicated yoga practitioners and instructors, they have meticulously cultivated their expertise to offer a unique and transformative yoga experience.

As they both embarked on separate paths, delving into the foundational of yoga. After completing comprehensive courses in Hatha, Vinyasa, Prana Flow, Yin and Antar Mouna, that deepened their understanding, expanding their repertoire of techniques and insights.

Having walked the same path, they realized that their combined knowledge could create something truly special. As a result, they’ve merged their individual proficiencies into a singular vision. Drawing from their collective experiences, they now offer combined classes that fuse the wisdom of Hatha, Vinyasa, Prana Flow, Yin, Antar Mouna technique, and Meditation.

In their joint sessions, you’ll experience a harmonious interplay of styles, seamlessly weaving together the dynamic energy of Vinyasa, the introspection of Yin, and the transformative power of Prana Flow and Meditation. Andrea and Elisa’s classes aren’t just about physical postures; they’re immersive journeys that guide you toward holistic well-being – nurturing both body and mind.

Their shared odyssey has evolved into a gift they are eager to share. Andrea and Elisa’s combined classes are a testament to their dedication and passion for creating a holistic yoga experience that resonates deeply with each participant.
