Born and raised in Civitanova, lived in New York, Los Angeles, Colorado and currently based in Amster-dam, Gianluca is also an avid traveller and handpan player who loves to share his passion for yoga along with beautiful relaxing melodies everywhere he goes.

Carolina Binzi
Carolina Binzi will be your other host & Hatha Yoga teacher for the week. An experienced yoga teacher with an MA in Cultural Studies and Anthropology, Carolina will guide you through what she calls ‘finding what flows within’. She is fully dedicated to sharing the practice of yoga and her studies, from energy work to philosophy and anthropology.

After years of passionate university research, which however had brought her to places where she felt imprisoned, in 2018 Carolina decides to accept the inner call and flip her life upside down. She recognized that what once was her side job was a true vocation, and she has become a full-time teacher since then.

Today, she is completely dedicated to yoga and to promoting a holistic lifestyle, aimed at inner growth and personal flowering, with 10 years of personal yoga practice.
