Ameriga (ERYT500) is often described as an “unconventional” yoga teacher and one that thrives in empowering students to take their yoga practice to the next level and to reflect deeply on their life. In her intense, powerful and transformative classes she eclectically blends together her experiences with different styles of postural yoga. Expect creative, slow, deep and intense sequences, often leading to a peak pose, and garnished with Indian philosophy, psychology, immersive music and kirtan.
Ameriga’s attraction for Eastern Philosophies and soteriological disciplines started when she was an adolescent. She pursued her first University Degree in Oriental Languages and Cultures, and spent her early youth living and traveling across different East Asian countries.
At the age of 25, while living in Burma, she began to practice vipassana meditation A few years later she was introduced to postural yoga. It was love at first asana and since then she has studied with profoundly inspiring teachers and collected over 2000 hours of formal training, as well as a MA in Yoga Studies (University of Venice).
The teachers that have influenced her movement practice are Shiva Rea (with whom she has completed over 300 hrs of training), Meghan Currie, Vinay Kumar (Pranavashya Yoga), and several Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga teachers, starting with Gregor Maehle and Monica Gauci, who inspired Ameriga to study Sanskrit, yoga philosophy and anatomy. Ameriga also visits the Ashtanga shalas of Nancy Gilgoff, Balu Tevar, and Lino Miele. She has also trained extensively in Yin Yoga with Jo Phee, studying also for advanced modules such as cadaver dissection.
She offers 200 and 300 hrs teacher training.
