Marika Rocca

Yoga teacher

I was born and raised in Italy but I began traveling in 2013. My interest in yoga started in Australia where an injury forced me to find a way to recover. This is when yoga started to transform my life. Since then I have been on a journey experimenting with different styles and practices of yoga. I was lucky enough to learn from several great teachers during my stay in Australia, New Zealand and Argentina.

During my first stay in India I started to realize that yoga was more than a physical exercise. It started to change my vision and understanding of the world. It’s been a continuous growing and learning process on and off the mat which has led to a strong desire to share my experiences. In 2018 I decided to take my first official education in yoga.

In Buenos Aires I received my first certificate in integral yoga and at the beginning of 2019 I decided to travel back to India to complete a yoga teacher training in Hatha yoga. I also took a course to teach yoga to children and I recently completed another education in Yin Yoga and Pregnancy Yoga. At the moment I’m diving more into yoga anatomy and Pranayama.

I like to implement different styles and practices of yoga into my classes, such as Hatha, Vinyasa and Ashtanga with a particular focus on breathing. My intention is to create a safe and relaxed environment which allows the people to become aware of their body and can help them to look beyond the mat and within themselves.
