Simona Benvenuti

Astanga Led

Simona was born in Italy and since her youth has been living abroad, following her passion for different cultures and languages. Since 1999 she has settled in Amsterdam where she lives with her 2 daughters.

 

Her first contact with yoga was during her teens but it was in 2010 that she decided to deepen her interest in the connection between body and mind and in the Eastern philosophy and went to Bali where she practiced Hatha Yoga, pranayama and meditation.

 

Back in Amsterdam, she met Claudia Pradella and Eva Ugolini who introduced her to the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga practice. She was totally conquered by it and since then yoga is part of her daily life.

 

She experiences the daily yoga practice as a tool to find a deeper connection with our inner self, a way towards the path of living a mindful and aware life, facing and surrendering to the joys and challenges life continuously presents us.

 

After having worked many years in the financial industry, she felt the need to change life, to follow her passions and to spend more time with her loved ones and she took the opportunity to dedicate herself to in-depth yoga studies.

 

As such and with the desire to share the healing benefits she herself experienced through her yoga practice, she attended the 200 hours Teacher Training and the 100 hours workshop “The Path of Ashtanga Yoga” at Delight Yoga.

She follows workshops and travels regularly abroad to study with senior teachers as Lino Miele, David Swenson, Petri Räisänen.
