Ogni mia conoscenza è stata guidata dal mio corpo e dalle esperienze in cui e stato immerso. Queste radici del corpo piano piano sono diventate tronco forte e rami coraggiosi, foglioline sensibili, timidi boccioli e fiori spudoratamente belli e colorati. Ho incorporato i cicli della Vita e con questi sto ancora fluendo in questa dimensione affidandomi con fiducia alla coscienza che sempre più mi avvolge!
Mi sono diplomata all'Isef nel 1979 con interesse per l’Antiginnastica, ho praticato Training Autogeno, Arti marziali (Wing chung) fino ad approdare a diversi tipi di massaggio (Tui na, gestaltico, tantrico). Nel 1998 ho iniziato una formazione biennale in Counseling umanistico presso l’Aspic di Roma, ho conosciuto l’ass. Idea per la Depressione e l’Ansia con cui ho collaborato per anni e ho incontrato Biodanza che ha integrato il mio passato e guidato i miei passi fino ad oggi. Nel 2000 mi sono laureata in Scienze motorie con una tesi su Biodanza e mi sono iscritta al primo ciclo della scuola di formazione di Torino, nel 2003 mi sono titolata ed ho fondato con insegnanti e colleghe l’ass. L’Airone di Asti grazie alla quale molte di noi facilitatrici hanno preso il volo. Sono Didatta formata sotto la guida del fondatore del movimento di Biodanza Rolando Toro Araneda e mi sono specializzata in Biodanza per bambini e adolescenti ed Educazione al contatto con Sandra Salmaso, in Biodanza e Progetto Minotauro con Marcelo Mur e Valkiria Boninelli, sono in formazione per l'Albero dei Desideri e I Ching con Marlise Appy e Angelina Pereira. Nel frattempo sono diventata Leader di yoga della risata e posturologa e pratico meditazione Vipassana . Da tre anni propongo Biodanza a gruppi di persone diversamente abili e a gruppi di allievi delle scuole di ogni ordine e grado. Ho un naturale e spontaneo desiderio di trasmettere sapere perciò da quest’anno ho accettato la sfida di dedicarmi alla formazione in Biodanza nella Scuola di Biodanza del Piemonte. Conduco gruppi settimanali ad Asti e Torino.
Da poco vivo a Piovà dove metto in pratica tutto ciò che sono!
