    About Maria Testillano

    About Me

    Since I was a little girl equality between people was a matter of vital importance for me. Being able to help the unprivileged has always been the best satisfaction I could get from life. In order to achieve this goal I studied law, embracing the rights of the less privileged. As licensing, I traveled the world, owned a business, but especially and above all, my greatest interest was the human being and his minimum health and wellness conditions. This feeling each day stronger, turned me to the techniques that accompany me today on my way as a Therapist and Instructor. The first one was the Universal Energy channeling, from where I found meditation and developed my intuition. Then Applied Kinesiology (Reflexokinesia®), the Structural Activator and Polarity Therapy followed. At this point I started as a Polarity Yoga Teacher, awakening my interest for the deeper meaning of Yoga.

    So I became a certified Yoga Instructor Alliance (RYT200) at The International Yoga School of Madrid. The study and practice of AeroYoga® has opened a new perspective on the awareness of the potential of this great and innovative discipline.

    Quotations

    Water is the element softer yet its firmness manages to break the hardest rock, so be water my friend, relaxes your mind and movements. That would say if they spoke together Lao Tse and Bruce Lee.

    Every day do something you did not do before. Break your routines. Just doing different things recover the surprise and spontaneity, perfect impulse to move forward and evolve.

    Shiatsu Instructor (600+)

    About Davide Sciortino

    About Me

    I have always been convinced that my way was to help people find their own external and internal balance, although at first I did not know how. After high school I looked for a new way to study, where I could find the tools to better understand myself and people around me. Naturopathy has been a revelation, my life changed and I knew that this was my path and there was no turning back. But I found my real passion in Shiatsu (Master of the School of Naturopathy).

    Every time after any treatment, I came out refreshed and more aware about the world that surrounds us. I felt the great universal knowledge go through my hands. The practice led me to experiment with various techniques and styles, learning from several teachers I understand the essence of listening.

    A important part of my journey has been to be a part of the birth of the Shiatsu in cammino School, founded by my Master Massimo Noe.

    Shiatsu is more than a digital pressure technique, it is a perception of the individual as a whole. It is the ability to converse with the profound essence in each individual's unfiltered mind. It is unconditional love. The Moxa and Stretching of Meridians are complementary disciplines, more complete in its phenomenology which is linked to the symptom and active stimulation of the body's energy aspect.

    The need for new experiences and overcoming my limits has led me to travel. At the end the Dominican Republic has welcomed me and I found my family here and my destination.

    About Marta Privitera

    About Me

    I believe that what we call “Job” could be a chance to share what’s really worthy in us and not something we “should do”, something that has to be done. So at one point of my life I realized that sharing my knowledge about Yoga with my friends was giving me joy and satisfaction and from that came the understanding that teaching Yoga would have been the most enjoyable way for me to contribute to the community. This is how my journey has started, now I’m a certified yoga teacher and I share this passion and energy in Toque Holistico.
