Born in 1979, in Tuscany, Italy, movement and the body as an instrument to create harmony have always been an integral part of Gaia's life. She studied classical, modern and contemporary dance from 1987 to 2003. In 2006 she graduated at the University of Florence with a degree in Communications, Majoring in Multimedia and Linguistics. Her relationship with yoga began in 2008 while trying to find solution to stress and anxiety. That search pushed her to expand her knowledge and experience with different styles of practice, including Hatha yoga, Acro Yoga & Ashtanga Vinyasa.

In 2011 she studied with Tribe completing the level 1 yoga teacher training. In the same year she studied Yoga for kids and Families with Rainbow Kids Yoga in Rome Italy. In 2014 she completed her level 2 training with Tribe. In 2015 she was a teacher assistant on two Tribe teacher trainings level 1 and 2 and following that became a primary teacher on the Tribe teaching team. She has since taught on 3 Tribe one month yoga teacher training courses.

" The Yoga path teaches me that every individual has the power to evolve physically, mentally and spiritually. In the practice I offer, whether it be rigorous or gentle, I invite my students to listen to their needs, respect their limits and cultivate personal goals, so the practice becomes a reflection of each individual. What matters is not so much 'what' we are doing but 'how' we are doing, and if we are present with ourselves or not. My teaching style emphasises body awareness and alignment in a dynamic way, focusing the attention on cultivating sensitivity, honesty and concentration on the mat and in life. I feel the ancient practice of Yoga teaches us to go beyond the limits of our physical body and ego, to embrace a wholeness and oneness that we are all part of "

For more than 5 years Gaia has been teaching on a regular basis In Italy and abroad .

This woman taught me how to breathe

Gaia took my yoga practice to a level I didn’t know existed. Under her guidance, I was able to reach a point of mindfulness that stays with me to this day. Love her!

Great teacher- go if you want to learn more!

One of my favourite yoga teachers, really knows what's she's doing, gives accurate teaching points and adjustments so you understand how to put your body in the right position and get rid of any bad habits! Class are often themed, and are diverse and fun.

Fabulous, authentic and creative teacher

I recently attended a level 2 teacher training, where Gaia was one of the main teachers. She shared her practise of Ashtanga with enthusiasm and expertise. She also has a deep spiritual connection to the teachings she shares. I would recommend anyone to attend a class, workshop, retreat or training with Gaia. Beautiful woman, beautiful soul.

Gaia has a beautiful approach to teaching - she is incredible aware and sensitive, and manages to hold space for sustained amounts of time taking. Gaia is wonderfully encouraging and enthusiastic, it is very clear that her practice happens the whole time, not just on the mat. I would recommend Gaia to beginners and more experienced practioners.

I was lucky to have Gaia as one of my instructors in my TTC, and I enjoyed very much her classes, her explanations and the feeling she puts in what she does. She is very genuine and a beautiful soul!

Gaia is a spiritual and dedicated yoga teacher. She is smart and kind during her classes, but sometimes also funny ! She is always helping you to find the right adjustments of your body and be safe in the position. My body felt the positive benefits of her excellent instruction. She is a very experienced teacher who continues to study and add to her knowledge. I was very lucky because I had her as a private teacher !

Beautiful session with Gaia in Goa, January 2015

Gaia was a guest teacher at my yoga teacher training in Goa, India (January 2015). Her range of knowledge varies from wonderfully mellow yin to high power vinyasa classes. The physical approach she brings to class is interwoven with the spirituality of the practice. Such a beautiful soul.

Credo che il vero compito di un insegnante di yoga sia incoraggiare, facilitare e soprattutto ispirare la pratica negli allievi. L'istruttore che riesce a fare tutto questo è sulla strada giusta per diventare un buon maestro. Per quanto riguarda la mia personale esperienza, ritengo che Gaia, oltre ad essere molto preparata dal punto di vista pratico e teorico, sia soprattutto una persona in grado di ispirare gli altri e spingerli ad essere migliori.
