Flavia has been practising yoga for around 15 years, and qualified as a teacher in 2014.
She first took to yoga as a physical practice to support her long-distance running, but soon discovered its benefits to mental health and wellbeing. When yoga helped her to overcome a period of anxiety, Flavia was hooked. This experience led her to pursue teacher training with YogaCampus in London. Flavia teaches dynamic hatha yoga in workplaces and community settings, and is also a registered teen yoga and mindfulness teacher specialising in teaching yoga to teens (age 10 – 18) and has taught this meditation technique to them (in an accessible form). She has had a meditation practice for around 8 years, and in 2016 became an accredited Traditional Yoga teacher.
Flavia combines teaching yoga with a career as a freelance health journalist, and is a regular health and wellbeing blogger.She is also a fundraiser for the mental health charity Mind, and a volunteer with the Teen Yoga Foundation, which supports the wellbeing of young people through yoga practice, research and events.
