Attention, observation, clarity, precision, pleasure, creativity, listening, vigour and inner calm are some of the key words in the structure and transmission of the Yoga practice in Cristiana Battistella's classes.
Cristiana is a teacher of Vinyasa Yoga, Yin Yoga (with over 1200 hours of teacher training)
and Contemporary Dance.
After completing her Bachelor of Arts in contemporary dance at the Folkwang Universität der Kunste in Essen and after years of theatrical experience, she began practising yoga in the mid-1990s.
She learns from different masters and teachers and gathers experience by approaching various traditions, but it is in Vinyasa Yoga that she finds the greatest inspiration and joy.
The practice of asanas, pranayama and meditation in the Shamatha tradition are harmoniously integrated into her classes.
Particular attention is given to body alignment and precision in the execution of postures and transitions between asanas for preventive purposes and for maintaining the health of the physical body and mind.
