I have always been fascinated by Oriental Disciplines and Philosophy. Alongside with the practice of yoga and meditation in 2002 I approached Tai Chi Chuan Yang Style. I attended courses and seminars in India and in Italy with different teachers of “Scuola della Via Interiore” of Master Vlady Stévanovitch and Master Tiziana Ottoni at “Monastero Zen Ensoji Il Cerchio” in Milan. In 2008 I joined the International Tai Chi Chuan Association (ITCCA) and started my training with the teacher Fabio Patruno. Since 2012 I have undertaken training with Master Attilio Carotenuto, branch leader of ITCCA ‘Original Internal Power Tai Chi Association’ and of ‘Scuola Happy Tai Chi’. I constantly practise this art, which I consider fundamental for psycho-physical balance. In 2014 I passed the exam with the Italian Federation to teach Tai Chi Chuan and Chi Kung. In 2016 I became an ITCCA certified teacher and direct student of Grand Master  Chu King Hung .
