Currently enrolled in a YogaTeacher Training at the Himalayan School, Niccolò’s practice combines his love for body movement and asanas with a desire for self awareness and breathing exercises, pranayama. Niccolò has been studying yoga for more than 10 years focusing on Integral Ashtanga Yoga as taught by Lino Miele and his followers, on the Himalayan tradition of Hatha Yoga, and on Ashtanga flow. His classes are a unique experience thanks to moments of meditation, massage, breathing exercises – pranayama-, and his warm and welcoming personality. Practitioners learn an integral practice that awakens the body thanks to the asanas, creates breath awareness thanks to pranayama, and offers an important tool for intellectual introspection. Niccolò loves the countryside, nature, hiking, climbing, and spending time outside, in nature, and with his animals. At Radici Yoga he teaches a modified version of the first Integral Ashtanga Yoga series and Ashtanga Flow and, during his classes, he also offers moments of guided meditation, pranayama, and guided relaxation.
Deep Inderjot Kaur possesses an inclination for reflection, sharpened by many years spent in the Middle East. This, combined with her curiosity, keen observation of human behavior, and great love of animals and nature brought her to the practice of yoga, which has finally fulfilled her inner search.
Deep started with Hatha yoga in 1995, but the discovery of Kundalini yoga, her real passion, brought her to the path of teaching. Her choice to continue on this path stemmed from her desire to share with others the benefits of this ancient discipline.
Deep continues to refine her training as a teacher with extensive personal practice, and teacher training courses in Rome.

Chiara ha avuto il primo contatto con lo yoga da teenager attraverso lo studio della danza a Rochester, NY, USA. Durante quegli anni lo yoga faceva parte della preparazione per la danza, ed è stato solo dopo la conclusione degli studi universitari che Chiara ha riscoperto lo yoga come una disciplina in sé per sé che, impegnando il fisico, la mente e lo spirito nella pratica, dona un senso di pace interiore e di radicamento, un contrappeso ai ritmi e alle pressioni della vita moderna.
Nel 2016, si è trasferita dagli Stati Uniti a Firenze ed ha iniziato a frequentare Radici Yoga sperimentando con diversi stili di yoga. Nel 2018, ha completato la formazione di 250 ore per insegnanti presso Radici Yoga (hatha flow-based). Insegna dal 2019 a una comunità internazionale a Firenze, che comprende anche studenti stranieri. Nell’insegnamento Chiara adotta la filosofia “gentle is the new advanced”, ispirata dai suoi insegnanti e da J. Brown Yoga, offrendo momenti di respirazione e meditazione come anche occasioni di mettersi alla prova ma senza sforzi.
