Dorotea was born in the worlds oldest republic San Marino but moved to London at the age of 18 to continue her studies. After 3 years working as PA to a fashion designer she finally realised this was not the right environment for her. She then quit her job and flew to India to train as an Ashtanga Vinyasa and Rocket Yoga teacher with The Yoga People. Dorotea discovered yoga on a rainy day when she couldn’t handle a terrible pain in her back anymore. Since that day she has never stopped and realised yoga was inside her all along. Her style is strongly influenced by her background in ballet and contemporary dance. Her classes are strong, dynamic, energetic and always incorporate a strong breathing technique. She always encourages her students to listen and to bring stillness in their body and mind, but at the same time to never forget to play, fall and step out of their comfort zone. Expect to sweat, play, invert and enjoy a long savasana at the end!
