Simona’s journey began in 1990 when she started practising meditation in her home town in Italy. She then travelled through Europe and in the Irish countryside, she explored other types of meditation and started practising yoga. Her interest in yoga, meditation and alternative healing took her to Asia where she took her first Thai Massage Course in northern Thailand in 1997 and later, she immersed herself in a different meditation technique in Bali. She moved between Europe and Asia, working as a massage therapist in Ireland and in France while studying other massage styles and alternative therapies and she kept studying Thai Massage in Chiang Mai and in Bangkok. She opened a Thai Massage school and Yoga center in Dublin and, always in need of a yoga teacher and having years of yoga practice herself, she decided to take an Ashtanga teacher training course in Edinburgh and she started teaching in Ireland, at her own center as well as promoting “yoga at your workplace” by teaching classes in different companies. She took Reiki courses to a master level and she continued studying with ITEC for a Holistic Massage and Anatomy Teacher Training Certification, which had her teaching anatomy in a college in Ireland. Anatomy and Yoga became her focal point of study and in 2005 she decided to move to Asia permanently where, in India, she took a Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Course at Sivananda Meenakshi Ashram in Tamil Nadu. Since then she has worked in Thailand, first at Y Fit Yoga Studio in Bangkok, and the Spa Koh Chang teaching yoga for detoxing. She moved to Hua Hin where she worked as Spa Trainer, teaching anatomy to Thai Therapists, as well as teaching yoga for Six Senses Spa and Evason Resorts and later she was transferred to the Maldives with the same company. She kept travelling to India studying yoga in between jobs, as well as taking a course in Ayurvedic Massage and Pulse Diagnosis in Rishikesh and studying Tibetan Massage in Dharamsala; then she moved to Koh Samui in the south of Thailand where she taught yoga at Spa Samui, and at Four Seasons Resort. Another trip to India and she decided to come back to Thailand and open her own company in Koh Phangan. After 2 years on the island, she decided to relocate to Koh Samui where she taught yoga and meditation at Infinite Horizons Rehab Centre. She opened a Yoga Studio and Retreat Centre in Taling Ngam on the south of the island in 2011 which has just been expanded to a beautiful beach front location. She also provides yoga classes at different locations on the island and she hosts retreats for groups outside Thailand.
