Simona's professional background is in Psychology and she has also studied Classical ballet. Subsequent studies in Dance Movement Therapy increased her awareness of how inextricably the mind, body and inner spirit are linked. She initially trained as a Sivananda Yoga teacher in 1997, however, her love of yoga drew her to other styles of yoga including Iyengar, Ashtanga Vinyasa, and Vinyasa Flow. Over the last 12 years she has had the privilege of studying with Bridget Woods-Kramer and John Friend as well as many other certified Anusara teachers. Simona has completed many different teacher training programmes and most recently a myofascial release training with Gary Carter. Simona has been practising yoga for 22 years and teaching yoga for 20 years and has continued her yoga training and teaching while living in Sydney and the UK. She teaches at Yoga Bodhi, a dedicated yoga centre in Bath that she also runs. Simona's classes are both fun and challenging and encourage playful exploration of both the spiritual and physical aspects of yoga. Simona emphasises in her teaching that we may practice yoga in a group, but that the practice of yoga in itself is a very unique journey.
