Fascinated by the yogic universe since she was a teenager, Paola started to study Hatha yoga in Rome, at the same time developing her interest in meditation techniques. Upon moving to Brussels, she continued her studies in yoga with Willy Van Lysebeth and later she attended the yoga teacher training course under the guidance of André Van Lysebeth, internationally well appreciated. She travelled several times to India to deepen her knowledge in the yogic discipline following the Sivananda and Satyanada tradition, also attending specialized courses mainly focused on Yoga Therapy and relaxation.
Cesare started practicing yoga assiduously in 2010, after realizing that he could play a key role in treating disorders of the bodies and the minds of people weary from years of intercontinental travel. His job as a flight attendant made him aware of the negative consequences of nights spent on shift work and of jet lag. After making several trips to Asia, he started the discipline of Hatha yoga through a method created by Supreme Master Gabriella Cella; the first woman to bring the ancient teachings of the Sivananda to Italy.
Yoga came to Antonella about 20 years ago when her dance career came to an end and she needed something in her life that helped her with the daily stresses of life. Yoga practice has played an essential role in her life helping her discover her inner self and help to maintain her flexibility and fitness. Her classes are usually very dynamic, the student will benefit from an intense class of yoga that, over time, is bound to strengthen and increase flexibility to anyone who embarks on a course with her.

"Amazing Yoga Retreat!"
Casperia is a magical place of calmness and beauty. This beautiful little hilltop village allows for a retreat to the self and opens up ones heart.
Lisa Quish is an amazing yoga teacher that integrates Chakra healing, meditation, Yin yoga and her great personality to her classes. I can highly recommend her and her classes. I felt well guided and challenged by her in just the right way.
Sandra who offers massages and different treatments is a true healer. I felt rejuvenated and whole after a craniosacral treatment from her. You shouldn't leave Casperia without booking a healing session with this magician.
Casperia and its surrounding hills offer many beautiful walks and bike rides and if the weather allows, the pool is a nice place to relax and enjoy the ever stunning views.
I want to go back to this place of serenity, beauty and calm as soon as possible!
