The course are held at Rome by Patrizia Gregori at Centered Yoga Studio Dhyana and at Milan by Francesca Petrilli at Centered Yoga Studio. 

The Centered Yoga Beginners course lasts two years. Each year is structured in five long weekends (Fri-Sat-Sun) and a supervision and revision week with Dona Holleman at Soiano del Lago. At the end of the entire two-year path, you can take the final exam with Dona Holleman to obtain the Diploma Centered Yoga Beginners 250h recognised by CSEN Italia and Yoga Alliance. 

You can access the course becoming members of the International Centered Yoga Association. 


First Year Programme: Standing Positions, complete cycle of sitting and forward positions, complete padmasana cycle. The standing positions prepare the students towards awareness of the role of the force of gravity in relation to balance, stability and lightness in performing asana. The Vital Principles of yoga practice applied are: rooting, centering, alignment and lengthening. The sitting positions prepare for awareness of applying the following Vital Principles of pratice: meditative mind, body relaxation and breathing.  

Second Year Programme: twists, arches, upside down positions. The twists, upside down positions and arches prepare the students to feel their creative, imaginative abilities. They make the body plastic, the mind elastic. Yoga becomes an art of self-expression.   

We await you to start this path of growth and awareness together.
