The alarm went off at 6am this morning…and surprisingly enough it wasn’t that hard getting up…on a normal day when the alarm goes off at 8am or 9am even, i find it extremely hard to get out of bed….but when i have to get up for yoga, and more to the point, to teach yoga…then getting up early feel effortless…
I was substituting for Nicol, yoga teacher and owner of the Yogasama Yoga Center, but who also teaches Yoga Dinamico B at as well as at her own center. Here is the class schedule at Yogasama [you can see my class listed on there, Wednesdays @ 20:00 Vinyasa Flow Yoga!]:

Yogasama class schedule is managed by Monic Mastroianni, also a yoga teacher at YogaMilan who teaches a variety of classes at the center, ranging from Yoga Dinamico, Yoga Dinamico B, Pregnancy Yoga, Hatha Yoga and heads workshops and masterclasses. Here’s their yoga class schedule:

Yoga Milan class schedule

I was nervous at first…but once i arrived, i started to relax…the yoga studio itself is an oasis of calm, it is just such a beautiful and peaceful space, that you can’t not relax when in it.
I arrived at 7.20am so had enough time to make myself some tea, and prep my area and go thru the class lesson i had prepared…there is nothing better and self-practice in an empty yoga studio – having all that space all to yourself…i just love it!
There are normally 5-6 students in this class, and for getting up so early to make this 8am class every Tuesday morning, they are a serious about it….unfortunately only 1 student showed up this morning…i was looking forward to teaching a fuller class…but i guess not this time! This week is a difficult week as not everyone is back, or some might have just gotten back from a long trip, i.e. Hong Kong, and so might still be jetlagged…the other thing is, the buzzer to let people in doesn’t actually work that well, and who knows…maybe more people came but i just didn’t hear them due to the malfunctioning buzzer? I will never know…I just hope that my only student enjoyed her class this morning, her feedback could possibly open up a new door/window/gate – at this stage, i don’t mind which!
Anyway, i’m exhausted now due to my early wake-up call…i will be going to bed very shortly…i’ve got another 6am wake-up call tomorrow morning…this time i’ll be trying out a vinyasa flow class at Kriya Yoga Ashram Milano, who are located at Via Degli Olivetani 12 – check out their class schedule below:

And this is where i taught this morning folks! [all photo’s taken from website]

About ctyoga

Christiane has been practicing yoga for over 10 years. Her yogic journey began in 2000 as a student of Swami Nirmal (now at the Satyananda Centre in London) at the Fitness First gym in Kensal Rise, London. She experienced various teachers in different Fitness Firsts in Central London and around Clapham Junction before changing gyms and meeting Alexa Kho at LA FItness in Piccadilly Circus, London. Christiane attended Alexa's Anusara classes as well as her workshops. In January 2011 she enrolls in a 200hr Vinyasa Flow Teacher Training course with Rebecca Ffrench at YogaLondon. Vinyasa Flow is a modern form of yoga that comes from Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and follows Sri K Pattabhi Jois. She quickly become passionate of this discipline and wants to deepen her knowledge; this brings her to meet and attend many workshops with Stewart Gilchrist, Shiva Rea, John Scott, Danny Paradise...all very famous teachers around the world. Being in the presence of such teachers is a significant experience for Christiane, in terms of her yogic journey, personal transformation and growth as well as understanding of yoga. After 11years in London, she moves to Milan to deepen and continue her journey. In Milan she teaches privately (1:1 and group classes) as well as in various yoga and dance centers. Milan is where her love for Ashtanga Vinyasa deepens and grows, bringing her to attend workshops with Lino Miele, Sharath Jois and most recently Kino MacGregor...all original students of Guruji, Sri K Pattabhi Jois. All of this culminates with a long awaited and long overdue trip to India, the birthplace of Yoga. Here Christiane deepens her practice and knowledge of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga by doing a 200hr Ashtanga Vinyasa TTC with Yogi Kamal Singh at Tattvaa Yogashala in Rishikesh India. After the monthlong course, her travels take her around India practicing with various other world renown teachers, namely with Sri V. Sheshadri in Mysore and with Rolf and Marci Naujokat in Goa. In 2013 Christiane decides to embark on yet another yoga adventure, this time in Aerial Yoga!
