Since November 2016 she has dedicated herself to the daily practice of traditional Ashtanga yoga according to the method of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. Lavinia is very grateful to Olle Bengtström, her main Ashtanga yoga teacher for leading her further on the path of yoga and guiding her as an invisible voice into understanding more about the mysteries of the human consciousness and life itself.

Lavinia believes the road to success is a continuous exploration and play. We should never stop learning and exploring. The secret to a happy life is to never stop exploring. We are eternal students. If we take on the responsibility of teaching others is even more important to never stop approaching things with the beginner’s mind.
