I am Italian and I studied Ayurveda for two years in my home country at the AumShanti school. My guide was Antonina Ferraioli with the supervision of Nazzareno Guerra and Kapil Bhardwaj. To these people I owe my deep gratitude.
I graduated in May 2014 but had already had an internship in Italy the previous year. Following my graduation I left Italy and decided to make a fresh start in France on the Cote Azur.
In the summer of my move to France I visited India, where my objective was to further my studies, so where better to go than the very place where Ayurveda was born. My choice fell on the area which is at the foot of the Himalaya mountains where there are 17
Ayurvedic hospitals. I stayed in the tiny village of Tattapani. Here I continued my studies with the guidance of Ayurvedic doctors and massage therapists thus deepening my knowledge and putting into practice everything I had studied in Italy, in the very place where Ayurveda initiated. This experience, together with all the other wonderful ones I had in this remarkable country, turned my life around and now Ayurveda is part of my day-to-day existence. I would like to share this “Life Science” with others aside from my close friends and family..
