Biography Yoga


“Yoga is joy, celebration and creativity. Each discovery and sensation I receive from my daily practice and studying, is a stimuli to share with others. Yoga is like poetry. When an individual experience is shared, it evolves into a universal one.”

Benedetta Capannna follows the Yoga teacher training programme at the Integral Yoga Institute of New York (2002) and at the Yoga institute of Rome (2005) . She has been member of YANI – Italian Yoga Teacher Association since 2008.

Her teaching, rooted in the Integral Yoga, is inspired by the creative encounter with Diane Long with whom she has been exploring Vanda Scaravelli’s approach to Yoga since the fall  2007 and by Jader Tolja with whom she successively achieves a master in experential anatomy – body thinking from 2011 to 2015.

Practicing Yoga for Benedetta is a joyful journey reawakening present moment awareness, curiosity, knowledge, mystery and poetry. The essence of yoga is self integrity, being in the self and is not a series of repetitive techniques to bring to perfection.
