Get to know the people of Delight Yoga

Ombretta Dettori


With a background in psychology and Human Resource management, Ombretta moved to Amsterdam in 2012, embracing a more centered way of living. Integrating both ayurvedic principles and yoga in her life, she felt encouraged in bringing positive shifts and became an Ayurvedic practitioner (Academy of Ayurvedic Studies).


The inspiring teachings of Coen van der Kroen, Atreya Smith and dr. Amruta Athale, the loving dedication with which dr. Vijith Sasidhar, dr. Vidya Vijith and dr. Shailesh Muli share their wisdom in India with their patients, set the example and gave rise to a genuine wish to be in service and to share all that she receives. Over the year in Kerala and Pune under the guidance of her mentors, Ombretta was taught Ayurveda from the classics and she would be extensively trained in massage techniques (abhyangam, udvartana, udgarshana, garbhabhyam), poorva and pancakarma procedures (i.e. pindasweda, basti, marma therapy, shirodhara, tarpana, nasya) there she also felt called to support other women, sharing the ancient wisdom on menstrual cycle, fertility and pregnancy. She integrates pranayama, chanting, simple meditation techniques and asana as therapeutic tools and she continues her studies in both Ayurveda, Yoga Therapy and Western medicine aiming to become a Doula soon.


Yoga has a profound impact in her being, next to her teachers Eva Ugolini and Claudia Pradella that lovingly guide her daily, meeting Luke Jordan and his honest yet profound way to passing the practice on, awakened a process of inner search through the practice that accompanies her since then, next to a growing love for the study of yoga philosophy, Hindu traditions and the practice of chanting. Since the very beginning she felt strong the call to visit Mysore where she returns yearly to practice under the guidance of R. Saraswathi Jois and R. Sharath Jois.
