YOGA TEACHER & CERTIFIED BIRTH DOULA
Bibi Lorenzetti is an Ashtanga Yoga Teacher, RYT Vinyasa Teacher, DONA International Birth Doula, Postpartum Ayudoula & Holistic Health Coach. She started teaching in 2008 as a Vinyasa instructor and received her blessing to teach Ashtanga Yoga in 2014, from the KPJAYI Institute in Mysore, India, where she has had the honor of assisting R. Sharath Jois multiple times over the years. After co-leading the Ashtanga Program at the Shala Yoga House in NYC for years, she now owns her own Shala in the heart of the Hudson Valley, where she runs Ashtanga Yoga programs, prenatal courses, retreats, trainings, mama circles and offerings of sorts.
Bibi has completed the third series of Ashtanga Yoga under Sharath Jois and Eddie Stern’s guidance. Over the years, Bibi has become a sincere believer in the profound beauty and many benefits of this method, teaching her students how to adapt it to the current individual needs. She believes Ashtanga is not a rigid structure or a one way only practice, but rather a personalized approach to practice, that allows for deep inner growth when done with sincerity and fluidity. Her teaching is rooted in her own disciplined and dedicated practice.
She has been featured in Glamour Magazine, in the Netflix Michael O'Neill documentary 'On Yoga: The Architecture of Peace', Ekam Inhale online Magazine, Ashtanga Yoga Parampara, The Native Society, Balearic Retreats, amongst many other Yoga online forums, and a variety of podcasts. Bibi has privately taught many high-profile entertainers including Madonna. She intends to share the transformative and healing practice of Ashtanga Yoga with her students through accessible, intelligent, and adaptable instruction. Having gone through pregnancy, postpartum recovery and injuries of all types herself and having worked with a broad variety of bodies ranging in age and culture she believes that breaking the traditional structure and creating a practice that serves each phase of her student's life is key to keeping the practice of Yoga alive and accessible for all. There is no one way. Bibi guides her students to use asana as a tool to cultivate a deeper awareness of one's body, a steady & clear mind, and a healthy, ease-filled life.
