Jaya Yoga Venice is an amateur sports club limited liability non-profit. Born with the aim to disseminate and teach Yoga in the Venice area through Yoga classes.
The name comes from the Sanskrit word Jaya (pronounced Gaia) that is translatable in two ways: Victory and Peace. To accompany the word Yoga we wanted to represent the victory that yoga has on avidiya (lack of knowledge) and the peace that the practice of Yoga gives the mind.
We teach Anukalana Yoga and Integral Yoga. We organize also Yoga classes in Pregnancy to accompany expectant mothers in the steps leading to the birth. You can also follow Pilates courses which train the body in a balanced way. We are the only center in Venice where you can practice AcroYoga: a healthy and fun way to learn more about yourself. For the little ones there is Yoga for Kids, a fun approach to the discipline to grow and have fun.
We are waiting for you in Campo San Polo!

All our teachers are highly qualified and they have international certifications.
“Am I not to have found the Yoga is the Yoga that found me.” So I love to answer those who ask me how and why I started to practice this discipline. As soon as I got in touch with Yoga I was fascinated by the chance to explore my mind through my body. I have developed my knowledge of Yoga in Italy and Europe where I attended several ashrams and schools to study the various styles of this discipline. I obtained the diplomas of Yoga teacher following the courses Intensive Villa Vrindavan ashram under the guidance of Jacopo Ceccarelli specializing in the style of Anukalana. I then felt natural to complete my education by becoming a teacher of Yoga in Pregnancy and Postpartum. My course of study in this field is constantly changing and deepening. I have a lively and curious mind which leads me to attend Italian and foreign courses and seminars to get to know the benefits of each Yoga style. My mind is very fast, imaginative and if I did regular yoga and meditation, I would always be a little in the clouds ;-)
I’m a great lover of sports and travel. After years of competitive swimming and skiing I started teaching approcciarmi to becoming world swimming and water aerobics teacher, and later, dedicating myself to fitness activities (music and aerobic) I have taught in various gyms. In recent years I have specialized in postural gymnastics and Pilates discipline with which it was love at first sight. Thanks to Pilates I have taken note of the true union between body and mind, and the significance of their complete synergy, rediscovering my innermost self and gaining greater awareness of me. The days pass, the clock is always an eye on capacity but everything is organized in a perfect tetris. With Pilates, I learned to listen to me, to know me and find the energy to face life with control and enthusiasm.
“He travels the country, the continent will find in you”
Dopo molti anni dedicati alla danza contemporanea e classica, ho sentito la necessità di trovare una pratica che integrasse corpo, mente e spirito in un’unica disciplina, così ho iniziato a sperimentare vari tipi di yoga (tra cui Hata, Iyengar, Anusara), a frequentare corsi di meditazione Zazen e Vipassana, la scuola di filosofia orientale a Bologna, a partecipare a workshops, immersions e corsi di Acro Yoga.
L’approccio di Anukalana yoga, morbido e armonioso, è quello che più mi ha aiutato a fluire con naturalezza in questo percorso di crescita personale, diventando decisamente uno stile di vita. Ho frequentato i corsi, conseguendo i diplomi, per diventare insegnante di Anukalana Yoga e Acroyoga Anukalana inspired presso la scuola Samadhi di Firenze.
L’acro yoga mi ha affascinato perchè mi ha aiutato a superare paure, difficoltà e insicurezze, ha contribuito ad aumentare la fiducia nell’altro, l’ascolto reciproco e il senso responsabilità. Mi permette in ogni istante di esprimere l’eleganza e la bellezza del movimento, tipico della danza, il fluire morbido e consapevole al ritmo del respiro, tipico dello yoga. È pura emozione nel farlo e nel vederlo, presenza nel “qui e ora”, unione di corpo, mente e spirito. Quindi il gesto acrobatico è solo conseguenza della ricerca di un movimento fluido avvolgente armonioso, che anche se semplice, basta a se stesso, se poi si può esprimere anche ad alti livelli.
