Matilde is an Italian who was born in London and raised between there and Ibiza, therefore having a deep connection and knowledge of the island. She has lived and practiced the sacred practice of yoga in India over the course of 3 years and did her first YTT in Iyengar Ashtanga in 2017, then a private course in 2019 and Multi-Style in 2020. She has been a passionate yoga practitioner from a young age and loves this sharing of being with the world by teaching mostly modified Ashtanga, Vinyasa & Yin. The tools she has gained from study and practice have helped her through major setbacks which life has thrown her. After nearly becoming paralyzed aged 21 she started reading Iyengar's "Light on Yoga" and knew that she needed to shift from 'doing yoga' to practicing a new way of being; physically, mentally and spiritually. She is also a sustainable designer and has worked as a sous chef in the past, so is very passionate about the environment and the food we nourish our bodies with.
