Simona’s journey began in 1990 when she started practicing meditation in her home town in Italy. She then traveled through Europe and in the Irish countryside, she explored other types of meditation and started practicing yoga. Her interest in yoga, meditation and alternative healing took her to Asia where she took her first Thai Massage Course in northern Thailand in 1997 and later, she immersed herself in a different meditation technique in Bali.
She opened a Thai Massage school and Yoga center in Dublin and decided to take an Ashtanga teacher training course in Edinburgh and she started teaching in Ireland at her own center as well as promoting “yoga at your workplace” by teaching classes in different companies.
She took Reiki courses to a master level and she continued studying with ITEC for a Holistic Massage and Anatomy Teacher Training Certification, which had her teaching anatomy in a college in Ireland.

Anatomy and Yoga became her focal point of study and in 2005 she decided to move to Asia permanently where, in India she took a Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Course at Sivananda Meenakshi Ashram in Tamil Nadu.

Since then she has worked in Thailand, first at Y Fit Yoga Studio in Bangkok, and the Spa Koh Chang teaching yoga for detoxing.
