Fun fact about me: I always, and I mean it, always, struggle to open the door - push or pull? Who knows? So I go upside down 😅
Hey humans! After yesterday, I felt the need to post another door pic...you guys are fantastic ♥️ so many souls have started to follow this page (little overwhelmed 😊) so this morning I’ve decided to tell you who I am.
Here it goes, this is me.
My name is Ilaria, 25 yo, from Venice Italy. And I currently live in York, UK.
I’m an art historian with an interest in Medical Humanities, a PhD candidate, and a yoga teacher in training.
My yoga journey starts three years ago by chance. I just moved to England when I was convinced to go to a yoga class with a flatmate. At that point I have been practicing dance since the age of three and my body was just craving movement. Little I knew that one hour yoga class would have changed my life forever.
Yoga kept me going in very dark times. One hour a week soon became two, three, four...and my mat became a travel companion during all my research trip to the States.
Three years, and an almost finished PhD later, here I am, in the process to become a yoga teacher.
I have danced since I was little, but I was never super strong or super flexible.
My first yoga class I couldn’t hold a downward facing dog, plankasana was a disaster...a year ago I could not do an headstand comfortably...6 months ago I could not do handstand against the wall... and a month ago I wasn’t even sure how the door thing worked.
Yoga, as life, is a beautiful journey of self discovery. It has its downs and ups. It has its challenge (savasana still is one of my biggest challenges atm) and its result.
But if practiced with intention it always, always, leads you back to your truth.
Heart on the mat humans, whether you’re upside down on a door or finding your sense of groundness in balasana, your yoga journey will bring you back to your true self ♥️🧘🏼♀️♥️
