On the magic island of Elba we do have the Villa Shanti. A beautiful villa between mountains and sea. The next beach is in walking distance (3.5km). Behind the house, there are trails leading to the mountains and beautiful magic rocks shaped by the wind over centuries. From the huge garden in the back, we are overlooking our two most beautiful villages: Marciana Alta and Poggio. Spectacular with their lights at night. From the front garden we have seaview overlooking Enfola, Elbas Natural Park.

Villa Shanti is a magic and very quiet place, sourrounded by nature (Parco Naturale del Archipelago), perfect for the yoga teacher training. We have our own spring water, high quality and we create energy from solar panels.

We can take up to ten students in the Villa Shanti. One apartment with three doublebeds can take max. six students, one small apartment is ideal for two people (like a couple). In in our house we have two bedrooms for four more people. In total, we have four bathrooms. We have a beautiful outdoor yoga shala completely made of wood. There is also an indoor yoga shala. We have AC fired by the sun. The huge beautiful garden has fruit and lemon trees and we grow our own vegetables and herbs.

If necessary, we can use the villa of our neighbours to host another four to six students (different prices available on demand).

More information about the instructor:

“Stay in the forward bend Pada Hastasana and it will change your life!” I read this in the first yoga book I picked up in 1995.

I laughed and thought, let’s see! My son was born and I lived in the wonderful but stressful job of a global reporter, desperately looking for an anchor in my restless world.

What followed were several yoga teacher trainings that have changed my life sustainably and my Reiki Master with Marina in Thailand completed the holistic path I am following.

I started my first Yoga Teachers training 20 years ago with Power Yoga inventor Bryan Kest in Santa Monica, California, the yoga guru of stars like Madonna and Sting. Bryan was literally my catapult from the western to the eastern world. Power Yoga was just the beginning that gave me the first access to a very athletic yoga. But that cannot be everything, I thought, and set out for India and Nepal.

In an Ashram in India (Kerala) I graduated in Therapeutic Yoga with Guru Saji. Added to this was another degree in YinYoga and my Reiki Master and latest Flying Yoga or Areal Yoga Teachers Training.

“I have created my own style from this colorful yoga world with many great inspirations, but it always adapts to the group. I like to teach in nature, on beautiful beaches, on magical rocks or in the Yoga Shala of my Villa Shanti on the beautiful Island of Elba where I do live most of the year. ”

I completely turned my life upside down. And I am a very lucky person to discover the healing path of Reiki. First I did heal myself after a heavy riding accident and then I did help my mother with Reiki till she died. To love yourself and heal yourself is incredible important. Only if you love yourself you can give love and healing to others.

Today I am living on the magical Island of Elba in Toscany. I opened the first Yoga& Mediation & Reiki Center in January 2018. With an indoor yoga Shala Indian style. The outdoor Yoga Shala surrounded by a beautiful garden with its own vegetables, herbs and citrus fruits is made of wood and at about 7 o’clock in the morning during sun salutation the SUN comes up in all imaginable colours.

It’s a magical place I live with my Italian partner Alberto (great cook). And every morning, when I get up with the sun, I am giving Reiki to my trees, the plants, the animals and human beings. And with gratitude I am bending over- Pada Hastasana !!!
