Cosetta Romani

Yoga Instructor

I am ferocious in my dedication to seize the present moment. Living life as it comes allows me to experience and teach yoga as a living practice, weaving all the wisdom traditions in the now.

I am a grounded, intuitive, compassionate, vital and generous being that likes to wear the alchemical hats of the consort, mother, friend, teacher, energy healer, artist, dancer, poet and ceremonialist. I have been practicing the healing arts of yoga, meditation and shamanism for 15 years and will continue to study until my last breath, under the direct guidance of Life.

In my classes, workshops, circles and retreats I want to feel and connect with the Mind-Heart and Spirit of each student. I rely on intuitive guidance, precise breath work, creative flows, chants and sacred songs, moving and sitting meditations. I invite them to shift inward, toward the center of their longing, in order to access and express their deepest potentials.

Registered with Yoga Alliance (E-RYT 500). I apprenticed for five years under the guidance of wonderful and knowledgeable yoga teacher Lee Atwell. Later I undertook yoga-training intensives from various teachers and schools. In 2007 I began a deep training with my most inspirational and empowering teacher Shiva Rea and her lineage of Yoga Prana Flow.

The Sacred Path of the Warrior in the Shambhala Tradition, as taught by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche and Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, is the core foundation of my meditation.

Simultaneously I completed a five-year mentorship with Sundust Oracle Institute under the compassionate guidance of medicine woman Char Sundust (Lakota Tradition). Currently studying with renowned teachers and shamans Christina Pratt and Sandra Ingerman.

In the last three years I have embarked an ongoing healing and learning in the ancient path of vegetalismo tradition of the upper Amazon, where plants and trees are considered the real university and pharmacy available to us. I travel to South America on a regular basis.

I am also a creative dakini, who has been studying and practicing the art of ikebana (flower sculptures) from the Sogetzu school. I found a daily delight in the creation of altars and sacred space.
