Eva Ugolini in Pasasana

(first position of the Intermediate series)


Eva Ugolini Bio

Her deep love and dedication for Yoga starts 20 years ago while immersing herself into Ayurvedic studies and since then both disciplines are a central part of her daily life.

Until 2022 she lived in Amsterdam where she held for over 10 years an Ashtanga Mysore Program with Claudia Pradella at the prestigious school Delight Yoga where she had the privilege to assist, study and learn from some of the most world renowned Ashtanga Yoga teachers. 

Her main guide nowadays is Petri Räisänen who has a great role in bringing to her practice and teaching the elements of contemplation, inner quiet and a broader perspective towards yoga and its evolution over the past decades, and Eddie Stern who has opened a big window into how to experience the practice as a source of steadiness and self observation and as a tool of expansion of awareness in all aspects of life and being.

Today she very happily teaches Ashtanga Yoga and Ayurveda between Amsterdam and Rome as a way to share her love and dedication for these so unique disciplines that can enrich our lives with extraordinary vitality and creativity on all levels.
