Always a great honor to host for the second time in Italy as a great teacher Dena Kingsberg!

Dena has studied and practiced the traditional method of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, for 30 years. She's one of the most advanced student in the world and is certified to teach this discipline by her Master Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, at that time director of the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute in Mysore. Dena, surrounded by the love of her husband Jack (her assistant) and two children, Zoli and Izac, manages to combine her love of yoga and the one for her family, creating a special atmosphere in the classes of acceptance and peace.
