Giorgia F

She teaches us movement in all its forms. We begin and end our days with her. We train flexibility during Flexy, we root ourselves and learn to balance through breath in Yoga, we meditate in the morning and in the evening we indulge in gentle movements that take the fatigue of the day off our backs. She is a creative person, a professional photographer, a plant-based cooking enthusiast who makes us dream in her daily life through the countryside, her horses, Tury, Ace, her workouts and her delicious recipes.

What do you have for breakfast in the morning?

Coffee and oat milk, yoghurt and two caramel energy bars.

What is the first thing you do every morning to start your day the best way?

Before drinking my coffee, while I wait for it to be ready, sometimes I do breathing exercises, sometimes I simply close my eyes and sit and listen, to exist. It is those four or five minutes that have really changed my perception of things.

What would you write on a billboard in the centre of your city?

Dear visitor, lemon and almond granita together is a NO.

Do you have rituals that help you feel more confident with yourself?

My training and my practice. They have built me as a person and continue to do so.

What comes to your mind when you think of the word ‘success’?

I am reminded of my sadness five years ago when success was linked to a totally wrong, toxic concept. Now for me it is rebirth, the countryside, horses, flowers, yoga.

If you were invited to speak at a conference and you didn't have to talk about your work, what would you talk about?

This is a difficult one. A few months ago I would have answered 'veganism'. Maybe I would still talk about it - even though for personal reasons I am no longer a vegan - to encourage those who can to change small things that are fundamental to where we live.

Is there anything you believe in that other people find crazy?

My Sicilian card reading.

What human characteristic most appeals to you?

Sexuality and sensuality understood as creative energy.

Three people you would invite for dinner if you had the chance and why.

Jesus because Yogananda speaks too highly of him, then Yogananda to see what he has to say and then Jung because he was my spiritual father. I think it would be a memorable dinner.

Do you tend to choose courage or comfort?

Unfortunately courage

If you could change your job for a day, what would you become?

I'd like to explore the world and write about it. Like Darwin. Between science, exploration, drawings and literature. I don't know how to translate that...biologist?

Do you have any favourite podcasts? Which ones would you suggest?

I have a podcast that amuses me and lightens me up. Luca and I listen to it while travelling, it's called “Cose molto umane” (Very Human Things).
