GABRIELLA GIUBILARO a long-time student of B.K.S. and Geeta Iyengar. She started her studies of Iyengar yoga in 1973 with Dona Holleman. Since 1981 she has been going to Pune to study directly with the Iyengars. She is well known for her simple, direct and dynamic teaching style and her humor. Gabriella is the founder of the Institute Iyengar Yoga in Florence, Italy, where she currently teaches.

AGRIPPINA PAKHARUKOVA has a university degree in Sanskrit from Russian State University For Humanities, Moscow. She has an Iyengar yoga certificate and holds classes regularly at the Istituto Iyengar Yoga Firenze of Gabriella

She teaches Indian philosophy, chanting in Italy and worldwide, Iyengar Yoga. Agrippina has taught several workshops together with Gabriella.


LESSONS: Every day classes of āsanas, prānāyāma and chanting. Agrippina will bring the extracts from the rare texts on yoga practice and mantras which will be read, explained and chanted. Every day three hours of yoga in the morning, and two in the afternoon and after each class we will dedicate sometime to the chanting. The idea is to incorporate the practice of chanting to the asana and pranayama.. This workshop is open to the practitioners with at least three years of Iyengar Yoga. Agrippina will assist in the classes as well.


THE RETREAT takes place at a farmhouse called "Centro Montauto" near Rapolano Terme. Rapolano Terme is a town located in Tuscany, Italy between Siena and Perugia

The yoga room is one of the many buildings on the property that has been restored with wooden floors and a view facing the surrounding hills.
