Astanga Yoga Retreat at In Sabina, near Rome, Italy

Claudia Pradella

Claudia discovered the world of "conscious living" while working in London, UK, in the mid '90s. Having studied a variety of disciplines from personal coaching, vipassana meditation, thai massage, biodanza and many more, her affinity and interest in Eastern philosophy, reinforced by several journeys through Asia, led her to a deeper connection to the Yoga tradition. Combining her passion for travels and yoga, Claudia invested in several years of personal practice, a few teacher trainings and various studies with great teachers and masters from different traditions, like Sri K Pattabhi Jois and TKV Desikachar.

Today Claudia is a fully committed student in the Astanga Vinyasa tradition, with a deep passion for the psychology of the yoga of Patanjali and with a strong believe in the benefits of an individual and balanced approach to yoga. She continues to travel every year to her teachers and mentors - Lino Miele and Sarah & Ty Powers, who she deeply admire and appreciate.

Since 2003 she’s been living and teaching regular yoga classes in Utrecht and in 2010 has opened Astanga Yoga School Amsterdam, the very first dedicated ashtanga school in the Netherlands! She's now program director at Delight Yoga in Amsterdam, where she holds the Astanga Mysore Program with full joy and dedication.
