Awareness Through the Body with Stefania

Awareness Through the Body is a comprehensive curriculum of exercises that offers practical tools for personal growth and discovery, self-exploration and self-knowledge. It is based on the Integral Yoga of Sri Aurobindo, but it also blends elements from a multitude of disciplines, including dance, hatha yoga, taoism, martial arts, physiotherapy, shiatsu, relaxation and breathing therapies. The activities are creative and often fun; they develop gradually and encourage concentration, focus, relaxation and a sense of accomplishment. In fact, by raising self-awareness, it helps participants to be more conscious of their own perceptions and abilities, so that they may become self-aware and self-directed individuals.

These classes do not require advance registration (drop-in) and they are suitable for beginner to intermediate level students. The cost is Rs. 400 for guests, Rs. 300 for guests under 30 years old, Rs. 200 for Auroville volounteers, and on donation for Aurovilians & Auroville New Comers.

About the Teacher

Stefania achieved a university degree in educational sciences and a master degree in clinic pedagogy. She worked as a freelance in various educational institutions in Italy (hospitals, schools and informal education centers), offering counseling, workshop and training. As a private therapist, she worked with children with developmental delays and behavioral and psychological difficulties. Her search for spiritual growth brought her to deepen her knowledge in philosophy, psychology and techniques for spiritual growth (Psychosyntesis, Indian psychology, Awareness Through the Body, Bach flowers remedy, life coaching, etc). The path of Integral yoga brought her to finally move to Auroville in 2007 where she mainly worked as Awareness Through the Body practitioner and as counselor and therapist in different Auroville schools. Since about two years Stefania is also giving therapies and classes for adults in Joy Community.
