Bibi Lorenzetti: Level II Authorized Ashtanga Yoga Teacher & Holistic Health Coach

My NativeAdVantage:

Bio:

Bibi Lorenzetti is a New York City based Level II Authorized Ashtanga Yoga Teacher & certified Holistic Health Coach. She received her blessing to teach Ashtanga Yoga in 2014, from the Sri K. Patthabi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute (KPJAYI) in Mysore, India, where she has had the honor of assisting R. Sharath Jois multiple times over the years. Bibi was first introduced to Ashtanga Yoga in 2010 by Kristin Leigh and Barbara Verocchi of the Shala Yoga House, where she currently teaches the morning and afternoon Mysore programs. Bibi is currently learning the Advanced A series under Sharath Jois’s and Eddie Stern’s guidance. Over the past 8 years, Bibi has become a sincere believer in the profound beauty and many benefits of this method. Her teaching is rooted in her own disciplined and dedicated practice.She has since been featured in magazines such as Glamour Italy Magazine, and has privately taught many high-profile entertainers and business moguls. She intends to share the transformative and healing practice of Ashtanga Yoga with her students through accessible, intelligent, and precise instruction. 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.

What do I do best?

I’m best at transmitting teachings trough the practice of ashtanga yoga. Holding space for people to find their own way is what we do as ashtanga teachers and I love watching and guiding each one of my students as they evolve and learn to find the strength within themselves. It’s very empowering process and I am very honored to have been given the gift of knowing how to remove myself just enough to the process unfold itself. It’s take a lot of self-practice to be able to get out of my own way, and let other find their way. It’s like being an invisible force for someone else.

What makes me the best version of myself?

All of my mental sanity, and inner balance comes from Having a daily Yoga practice, devoting a secluded time to my practice, having spent all those years (and still spending time) practicing under the guidance of my teacher in India, has established a solid seed of devotion towards the practice. Discipline muscle and I have worked hard to develop it, I would not be the same person without a disciplines, devoted practice. Coming to the mat on a daily basis keeps my ego in place, which means a lot of the energy that would naturally go towards negative useless mental habits now knows how to direct itself towards useful positive ones. It’s a daily choice, no matter the mood or the physical state, or where I am I make sure to set a time and place for practice.

Being able to spend long periods of time in India as a student was and is a really big part of my own personal growth, it keeps me in check as a student, and keeps my mind curious to continue to grow and evolve. Daily practice serves as a mirror to really see how your mind runs you around, and it helps you keep it somewhat under control. The way Ashtanga Yoga is designed: the repetition of the same asanas daily, the physical intensity, the time of day it’s practiced...all these elements are key for inner growth. My teacher calls it the 4D’s: devotion, dedication, discipline and determination.

What are my aspirations?

To live truthfully, to pass on the passion of yoga as a path to personal growth to others, continue to evolve and to love.

My Biggest Success?

Healing my journey with anorexia through Ashtanga Yoga.

My Most Challenging Moment?

My most challenging decision to this day was probably choosing to divorce at 30 and trust that all would be ok. Divorcing meant leaving the life I had built up to then, all that I knew as real, leave all its comforts behind in exchange for living in the moment, living with the unknown and learning to be ok with it. Now looking back at that time I realize that what I got out of this choice was rebirth, into a life that requires me to be present and aware. I am challenged daily to grow and continue to change, and become more boundless.

My Motto?

Practice and all is coming - Sri K Pattabhi Jois.

My Guru came up with this, and I swear by this, as my existence as I know it fully depends on my connection to the Divine, and that stems out of my practice.

My Favorite People/Role Models?

The person I look up to the most in terms of who I aspire to be is my teacher and friend Edde Stern. I admire is capability to absorb the philosophy of yoga, on a mental level, fluidly speak about it as if it was his mother tongue language, and embody it in his life. The way he makes his wisdom accessible and available for people of all educational backgrounds to understand and want to take part of.

Other influences in terms of really appreciating their spirit and wanting to embody part of their spirit: Janice Joplin, Marlene Dietrich, Brigitte Bardo

Well the list is endless

My Favorite Places/Destinations?

Of the places I have been: Portugal, Northern california, Mallorca (spain), Norther Spain

I just love traveling so I feel like most places I go I fall in love with. But i choose these maybe because I felt the culture come to my own.. But each place I visit I fall in love with something.

My Favorite Products/Objects?

My yoga mat, journals, my eyes.

My favorite book, which I always have a copy of with me at all times, and have gone back to any time I have questions about the next step in life: the bhagavad gita .Each time I read a passage I learn something knew about myself and how to deal with life.

My apartment, I love it, and I would not be the same person if I could not go back to my room and my kitchen. All the deities I have in there from Mysore, India, especially Ganesh. The dutch oven pot I use to cook my meals.

I also adore our car because it gives me freedom.

My Current Passions?

Hiking and camping. Surfing. Moving my body in all sorts of ways, feeling its strength in it’s movement. Traveling to new countries, I’m grateful because as a teacher I run retreats and I often get invited to teach in other countries or cities. I usually schedule extra time around the teaching to explore the surrounding areas.
