In 2014, Raffaela completed her 200-hour Yoga Alliance Certification at Yoga Culture in Danbury, CT. She guides her students to open their mind and body to their personal journey of play, discovery and self-awareness - on and off the mat. Her passion for yoga shines through in every class with specific alignment and modification options to meet her student's needs and level of ability. No pose is impossible. She is grateful to all of her teachers for sharing their knowledge, passion and love of yoga. She began her yoga journey four years ago in an effort to free herself of chronic low back pain. After trying a variety of styles, she found a style that connects the breath with the movement, specializing in Vinyasa yoga with Iyengar style alignment. This practice has allowed her to learn and grow to see that yoga is far more than the physical. It is this self discovery and connection with the mind and body that Raffaela encourages each of her students to take at their own time, in their own way.
Raffaela continues to enjoy learning from her mentors and her students, opening her heart and hands to share what she has gained with others. Drawing from her own experience of healing and increased awareness, she looks to educate and turn you on to your own personal journey.
