Antonia was born and raised in Miami, and began to practice Yoga as a teenager. After a transformational trip to Peru, she began struggling with mental illness and developed chronic digestive issues. She turned to the spiritual aspects of Yoga to guide her through recovery, adopting a daily meditation and asana practice, and studying different mindfulness techniques to ease her depression, anxiety and digestive discomfort. Through her journey, Antonia gained extensive knowledge of the human psyche, and of the relationship of the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of health. She completed her teacher training with the Yandara Yoga Institute in Baja California, Mexico. There, she studied with Craig Perkins and Allison Eaton, and truly connected with her vocation: guiding others on their path of healing and transformation. Antonia specializes in the slow, meditative styles of Yin and Restorative Yoga. She integrates Vipassana Meditation into her teachings, and leads her classes with genuine concern for each and every one of her students. She believes that simplicity brings sweetness to life, and that kindness and non-attachment should be practiced both on and off of the mat.
