About Me

HariOm!

My name is Ameriga, I am a yogi from Sicily, addicted to salted water, traveling and kitesurfing. I teach yoga at my rooftop yoga shala in a tiny beach village in the south of Sicily for 8 months a year. For the remaining 4 months, I travel around the tropics looking for wind and waves, and go back to India to study with my yoga teachers.

Ameriga (ERYT500) is often described as an “unconventional” yoga teacher that thrives in empowering students to take their yoga practice to the next level, and to reflect deeply on their life. In her intense, powerful and transformative classes she eclectically blends together different styles of postural yoga and through her understanding of functional anatomy, she invites the students to find depth in the poses by exploring them, instead of “performing them” according to an ideal shape. 

Expect creative, slow, deep and intense sequences, often leading to a peak pose, and garnished with Indian philosophy, psychology, immersive music and kirtan. 

Ameriga’s attraction for Eastern Philosophies and soteriological disciplines started when she was an adolescent. She pursued her first University Degree in Oriental Languages and Cultures, and spent her early youth living and traveling across different East Asian countries.

At the age of 25, while living in Burma, she begun to practice vipassana meditation. A few years later she was introduced to postural yoga. It was love at first asana and since then she has studied with profoundly inspiring teachers and collected over 2000 hours of formal trainings, as well as a MA in Yoga Studies (University of Venice). 

The teachers that have influenced her movement practice are Shiva Rea (with whom she has completed over 300 hrs of trainings), Meghan Currie, Vinay Kumar (Pranavashya Yoga), and several Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga teachers, starting with Gregor Maehle and Monica Gauci, who inspired Ameriga to study Sanskrit, yoga philosophy and anatomy. Ameriga also visits the Ashtanga shalas of Nancy Gilgoff, Balu Tevar, and Lino Miele. She has also trained extensively in Yin Yoga with Jo Phee, studying also for advanced modules such as cadaver dissection.

She offers 200 and 300 hrs teacher trainings. 

Outside of the mat, Ameriga loves to live by the sea, where she kitesurfs when she can. She is also a passionate rock climber, pole dancer, and loves to play kirtan with her band, the Bhakti Sisters.

Ameriga's classes eclectically blend together her experiences with different styles of postural yoga. She teaches a slow and deep vinyasa flow, infused with the philosophical underpinnings of yoga, tantra and advaita vedanta. She guides the classes primarily by voice and touch (students are advised to let her know if they prefer not to be touched) inviting the students to find depth in the pose by exploring it, instead of “performing it” according to an ideal shape. She often sequences her flows in a mandala style, with emphasis on intentional movements, playfulness, breath work, and somatic embodiment.
