Federica

Originally from Italy, but based in Hong Kong since early 2004, Federica started her yogic journey since her move to Asia, fascinated by the sense of peace and release she immediately experienced on and off the mat. Yoga practice inspired her to live each moment more mindfully and empathetically and to help others find the same comfort through it.

She completed her yoga trainings under the guidance of Master Yogananth Andiappan, at Anahata-Yoga.

Federica believes yoga is the right balance between strength and flexibility, so her classes combine a Yin and Yang approach to postures, with a focus on meditation and breathing techniques.
