Livia Candido de Oliveira
Yoga teacher E-500 RYT®
My professional roots have to be seeked in San Paolo/Brazil, where I belong and first moved into the yoga universe. My approaches to the infinite possibilities of the body expressions starts related to the afro brazilian dance, capoeira and surf, which played an important role in my background. The Yoga arrived at my life in 2000, giving me a long experience in traditional styles like Hatha, Ashtanga, Iyengar and Vinyasa.
Once moved to Italy, I specialized in several practices becoming a certified instructor of methodologies such as 200h of Power Vinyasa, 100h of Advanced Sequencing Mandala Flow in Prema Vinyasa Yoga, 100h of Awakening Somatic Intelligence that is focused on Functional Applied Anatomy, Art of Vinyasa Instruction and Somatics (also by Prema Vinyasa Yoga), 300h of Rasa Yoga focused on Bhakti Flow and 30h of Restaurative Yoga. All this knowledge is deeply connected to the awareness of Mantras, Mudras, Mythology, Pranayamas, Biomechanics of the Body and the Tantra Philosophy.
My connection with nature, the experience of raw bodily sensations and the passion for inner alchemy guided me to complete my constant studies with other philosophies such as Taoism and Shamanism.
I believe that when we take nature as a reference in our lives, we can achieve the balance and essence of all things that come from a single source of energy and also identify parallels between the currents of yoga, tantra, taoism, shamanism and the sacred body connecting the inner and outer universes. The sublte body not only involves complex biological rhythms, like the nature, but is the home of multitude of archetypal forces.
All these teachings and schools of thought and techniques allows me to build a recreation of the physical and energetic body through a diverse range of ancestors healing and to immerse my classes both in tradition and into the most avant-garde attitudes.
