Hi there, I am Carlo Ferroni, I was born in Florence, Italy, and have been living in the west of Scotland for the past 21 years.
I have been practising Yoga and meditation since 2008. I came to these practices quite late in life, at 49, shortly after having a hip replacement to alleviate years of chronic pain brought on by the consequences of a car accident. After the first few classes, I was completely hooked and have been practising virtually daily ever since.
Yoga and meditation have literally transformed my life; at the time I was a heavy smoker and drinker, mildly depressed, totally unfit and overweight.
Now, almost ten years later I am the fittest and happiest I have ever been. Having experienced the benefits of Yoga myself, I decided to leave a successful career in IT in favour of spreading the transformational power of Yoga and meditation.
I am a Yoga Alliance International certified graduate of the CYS Yoga Teacher training. And teach mainly in the West Coast of Scotland.
I have visited Mysore, India, repeatedly to practise at the KPJAYI institute under the guidance of Saraswathi Jois. I also successfully completed courses on Yoga and Mindfulness for Addiction Recovery, Yoga for Anxiety and Depression, Yoga for Palliative Cancer Care, Yoga for Outreach and Yoga for Chronic Pain and Fatigue.
I have been vegan since 2011 and am happy to help anyone wanting to explore the joys and benefits of this compassionate lifestyle in a safe and nutritionally valid way.
I am determined to help others achieve the well-being they deserve and kickstart the transformation they want in their life.
