Dorotea was born in the worlds oldest republic San Marino but moved to London at the age of 18 to continue her studies.
Coming from a little town of 36000 people, London looked like wonderland to her and she jumped into working within the fashion industry while still studying. However, after 3 years working as PA to a fashion designer she finally realised this was not the right environment for her and one month later she had quit her senior position within the company and booked a flight to India to study with Jamie & Dulce from The Yoga People.
Dorotea discovered yoga on a rainy day when she couldn’t handle a terrible pain in her back anymore. Since that day she has never stopped and realised yoga was inside her all along. Yoga gave Dorotea the strengths to accept things about her past and make her stronger and stronger in every situation. Thanks to yoga she has discovered a new ability to deal and solve her inner questions.
In her classes Dorotea always encourages her students to listen and to bring stillness in their body and mind. At the same time she never forgets the need for students to play, fall and step out of their comfort zone.
Dorotea is a certified RYT 200 Ashtanga Vinyasa and Rocket Yoga Teacher and her style is strongly influenced by her background in ballet and contemporary dance. Her classes are strong, dynamic, energetic and always incorporate a strong breathing technique. Expect to sweat, play, invert and enjoy a long savasana at the end!
Dorotea is also a certified Raynor Technique Massage Therapist, a deep tissue massage designed by Brandon Raynor focused on finding and releasing tension.
