Una believes that contrast and duality are the the ultimate teachers. The human experience lends itself so perfectly to paradox with the Masculine/ Feminine, Solar/Lunar and Positive/Negative dualities. The darker side of duality is often the place people most want to avoid and yet, when one shines the light on these places, they get to integrate the darkness and experience a brighter version of themselves. This spiritual knowing of Paradox, is that duality is an illusion that separates us from Oneness.
Una Viggiani is an artist, yogini, world traveler and inspired instigator. She discovered yoga as a way to balance the demands of teaching art at elementary school, but it soon became much more than that. When she completed her yoga teacher training at the Nosara Yoga Institute in 2009, she made a lifelong commitment to the practice and has been learning and deepening her knowledge ever since. Yoga has given Una the opportunity to be fully present with the sensations in her body, whether they are uncomfortable or pleasurable. Ultimately, this has expanded her capacity to feel joy and receive the beautiful gift that is life. As a yoga teacher, Una teaches at a gentle, conscious pace that allows beginners to feel comfortable, while offering sequences and poses that challenge even advanced students. She provides a safe, loving space for all to explore a mindful presence in their own bodies.
