Eva (E-RYT 500, YACEP) is the main teacher of Floripa Yoga & Kitesurf House.
Her passion for physical movement has begun since childhood, doing karate, dance and yoga. Traveling to India revealed her that Yoga goes way beyond physical and it actually has become a way of life.
Her Vinyasa classes are blend of basic and advanced poses created into dynamic flow and allowing to cultivate body and breath awareness. Practice gradually builds up towards challenging poses with respect to individual needs. Each class focuses on different body area and connects with certain theme to grow not only physically. Relaxing sequences of Yin classes are enriched by information from modern and traditional teachings about mind and consciousness (neuroscience, Veda and Non-dual Tantra).
Through variety of meditation techniques you will start to explore capabilities of your mind and the impacts of meditation on your physiology and nervous system.
Her Teacher Trainings are focused on self-exploration of physical and mental capabilities. Enriched by teachings from Ayurveda, Consciousness based technologies and the other ancient well-being techniques you will start to experience great shift in your everyday life, which helps to maintain your practice also back home.

Monica (ERYT200, RYT500, YACEP) has a background that includes exercise physiology, marine biology, zoology, molecular biology, education, and wilderness therapy field guiding to name a few things. Of her many paths, yoga is the thing that has “stuck” as it brings her more peace, contentment, and joy everyday and continues to help her expand what’s possible and step into her potential, and this is what she wishes to share!
She loves to bridge the gap between her Western & Eastern trainings and blend the physiological, psychological, and spiritual to empower people to use the tools of yoga for more than fitness, but to enhance their lives and realize their unique potential.
She loves the speed of slow honey, learning to surf, a simple life lived mostly outdoors, life/self experiments, and learning daily as a constant student and explorer of life.
Adriana is our Italian senior teacher. She lives the cold months in Milan, where she teaches in her yoga school, and the warm months near her Floripa’s friends, where she offers Vinyasa, Ashtanga and Yin Yoga classes.
A lover of nature, animals, land and sea sports, beauty understood as inner and outer harmony, Adriana began teaching fitness in the 80s and has never left the classes since then.
The philosophy of yoga is for her the greatest challenge, but also the most rewarding. It is the missing link that enriches her healthy lifestyle with the wisdom of the ancient masters.
Passionate about anatomy, her approach to yoga is physical, but only in appearance. The physical is intended as a tool to open up to listening, acceptance and respect for oneself and for others.
She has more than 1000 hours of training (RYT 500 certified) but she keeps on studying because she says “Yoga is not like going to school, you don’t learn by taking a diploma, but it is a journey that has a beginning, but never an end. “
Nikol has more than 12 years of personal practice and 10 years of teaching. Her learning is based on gained experience when traveling to Asia. She was mostly influenced by Petri Raisanen, from whim she learned the basics of energy healing alignment while helping into positions. Laruga Glasser, Dany Sá and all her students has inspired Nikol on her journey.
She says: “Everyone is different, but our existence is breath taking, it connects us to ourselves. Through it, we find inner space which influences the way to engage the center of the body and helps us to understand the basic principles of physical being and self healing. Tristana, the connection of movement, gaze and breath, contributes to conscious being on all possible levels. Being here and now is the basis for understanding and grasping life.”
In her lessons she focuses on energetic healing adjustments. You will encounter a physiotherapeutic individual approach, which focuses primarily on the elimination of disbalances.

“It has been nearly a decade since I began teaching yoga. Studying, practicing and teaching has been a pillar of well-being for me – it connects me to the true essence of my being.
Throughout my journey I have cultivated a sincere and genuine passion for the yoga philosophy. Sharing this ancient, sacred knowledge has brought me a profound and unshakable sense of peace and joy, and helped heal me in many ways.
It is through yoga that I have developed unwavering compassion, conscious awareness and loving kindness for myself and the world around me. I am deeply grateful and honoured to teach to a place that feels like home and share my passion with the lovely, open minded folks at Floripa.”
Vicky discovered Asthanga yoga 15 years ago while she was studying in San Diego, California. She never imagined Yoga would influence and impact her life so deeply.
After several broken hearts and a serious accident, Yoga became her most faithful lover. It is trough Yoga that she has discovered the power of gravity, how to feel grounded and embodied.
This Yoga has also taught her how to be her own shaman, how to heal herself, how to love herself sincerely by honoring every aspect of her personality.
In every contraction or friction, there is always an opportunity to soften and open your soul, a chance to grow.
Teaching has become her best therapy, her best medicine, her magic! For her, Yoga is like making love with yourself!
She has a yogatherapist diploma, she practices Reiki and did many Yoga teacher trainings such as Meghan Currie and Duncan Wong.
