About The Teacher
Pia has been teaching integrated body movement practices for the last few years. Even though her path of study and teaching stems from traditional Hatha yoga, she today truly appreciates the qualities that different types of yoga and body movement practices can create when mindfully woven together. Due to her own experiences in life Pia naturally became interested in learning from different teachers with their different approaches to yoga and body movement. Through the years she has studied with teachers that emphasize the connection of fascia and pain, emotions and energy distortion, to name a few. Somatics and Yin are some of the areas that inspires Pia, as well as Martial Arts. Her teachings are influenced by traditional Chinese medicine as well as western neuroscience, anatomy and biomechanics. Pia is currently a Masterstudent of Psychology and she is specifically drawn to the aspects of yoga and somatic bodywork in rehabilitation regarding trauma, as well as the negative effects of stress in modern life societies. Pia also greatly emphasize the healing impact that the elements of nature has on human beings, and to her nature have always been a sacred place to restore and connect with Spirit.
