Simona comes from a military family and is a registered yoga teacher (RYT), a certified trauma-sensitive yoga facilitator (TCTSY-F), and a Reiki Master. She started practicing yoga as a way to deal with anxiety and PTSD after several traumatic losses in her family. Yoga was also what helped her through a stressful pregnancy. She knew then that one day she would get her teaching certification, and five years later, she did. During her teacher training, she was introduced to Reiki, which helped her continue on her spiritual journey.
Simona is grateful to have had the opportunity to train with David Emerson and Jennifer Turner at the Trauma Center for her 300 hrs of Trauma-Sensitive Yoga certification. Her other teachers are Nature and the children and families she guides in her nature-based programs.
As a facilitator, Simona recognizes that everyone has their own story and no one understands their body better than themselves. She blends her knowledge and experience with her intuition to support each participant in reconnecting with their body and regain agency.
