Arianna Santucci

Meet Arianna. Her yoga journey started when she walked into her very first yoga class following an operation that left her almost crippled and unable to walk straight for 3 months.
Through yoga practice Arianna was able to find her strength and mobility again and she fell completely in love with it. Yoga gave her the right mindset to heal and become stronger both physically and mentally.
Arianna owes to yoga so much of what she has become today.
In order to understand better alignment and to progress in her own practice Arianna embarked on her first teacher training.
She teaches from the perspective that all the poses are possible and that you should always be curious to see what you can do when you set your mind on learning something new. “Challenges are there to give you the possibility to overcome them and teach you so much about yourself.
Start to explore and you will see how amazing the journey can be”.

Rebecca Hannah

Rebecca was introduced to yoga through physical theatre and performance. As a performer she was initially attracted to the physical side of yoga and how it could be used as a tool for creative expression.

This interest was channelled into further trainings, including 200 hours of Yogic Arts with Duncan Wong (a fusion of martial arts, Thai massage and yoga), 50 hours Tripsichore Yoga Choreography, calisthenics, and circus arts. She has taught workshops, retreats and teacher trainings in over 20 different countries across four continents.
