Giorgia R

She knows how to keep us focused on the breath during the practice and lead us to explore the universe while remaining on our mat. Her first practice was in Goa in 2010 and since then a stream of practices, countries, and teachers have shaped her. Her yogic path begins in 2016 in Barcelona with Ashtanga and then flew for 6 months around Thailand, India, and Bali. She spent time in Ashrams practicing pure Hatha, meditating and chanting, and then delved into Ayurvedic nutrition. She experimented in Bali, went back to Barcelona and she is now in Milan.

What do you have for breakfast in the morning?

I don't eat breakfast because I'm not hungry in the morning, but if I do then along with my mega cappuccino with veg cocoa milk and lots of cinnamon I have some black bread with tahini butter and plum jam or a smoothie with kefir and dried fruit.

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

I drink warm water, cleanse my mouth with a tongue cleaner, I practise nauli kriya to move the intestines, a few minutes of Pranayama and the same number of minutes of meditation. It's been like this for three years now!

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

Life is working in your favour.

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

Yes, positive affirmations, breathing and physical movements to get the energy moving.

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

Realising what I believe is right for my life. That the work I love gives me the right livelihood, staying true to myself and reaching people's hearts.

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

My work is very much part of everything I love. Maybe I would talk about art, about beauty, and about us women in a motivational speech to remind us of our strength and seek unity.

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

Yes, that in us there is the divine, the healer, the world.

What human characteristic most appeals to you?

Absolute freedom to be oneself and express oneself fully in every form.

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

A dinner could have a Sadhguru, Elio from Elio e le storie tese, and Sabrina Ferilli. I would like to understand how the sacred comes and is interpreted by an Italian actress and by the irony of Elio, and how a guru would react when faced with such different stimuli. I would do it to talk about serious things in a simple way by toning down and having a laugh!

Do you tend to choose courage or comfort?

Courage in the end.

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