Barbara is originally from Milan, Italy.
In 2006 she began her journey into yoga. After exploring different schools and teachers, she developed a steady Hatha practice. As her practice deepened so did her interest in meditation, philosophy, and nutrition, leading her to Yoga Teacher Training at Greenhouse Holistic (200 hrs) with Leigh Evans, where she graduated in Alignment Based Vinyasa. Ever hungry for more yoga and movement knowledge she embarked on Aerial Mukti Yoga Teacher Training at Jivamukti NJ with Sandhi Ferreira and in Yin Yoga at ISHTA with Ulrica Norberg. Anatomy has also been an important part of her training with a 108-hrs Anatomy Studies for Yoga Teachers completed in June 2016, where injury awareness and prevention where deeply discussed along with biomechanics and kinesiology.
She is passionate about sharing her skills and helping people improve their well-being and awareness through yoga.
Barbara also loves Circus Arts. Hoop Dance, Fire Dance, Aerial Arts (lyra, static trapeze) and Partner Acrobatics have enriched her life with new experiences, new friends, and an expansion of her movement vocabulary.
She is the photographer and curator of the book Elevate – Yoga on the Roofs of New York.
