Yoga Expert

COMO Shambhala Estate is very happy to welcome Monica Troiani as their resident yoga expert. Monica’s classes draw upon her expertise in various disciplines, including Hatha, Ashtanga and Vinyasa yoga.

Having first turned to Pilates and yoga after sustaining an injury, Monica is aware of the physical benefits of yoga, which she hopes to share in her classes. For Monica, yoga is a means of understanding both your body and your mind better, as much as it is a tool for improving balance and strength. She offers personalised instruction to each participant to bring about the best results.

Monica has over 500 hours of yoga teacher training, accrued over nineteen years, having studied under Giovanni Formisano in Milan, David Swenson in London and with Daniel Rama and Kalpana in Bali.

Chakra Healer

Bali-born Pak Dewa is a traditional ‘Balian’ healer with a focus on chakra healing. This form of healing holds an important place in Balinese life, treating illness through connections with the universe’s energy, while delivering insights that provide the opportunity for self-healing.

Chakra healing sessions with Pak Dewa are used to balance the body’s seven energy centres, or ‘chakra’ – each of which help to regulate the body’s processes, from organ function to the immune system to emotions. During each session, he will energetically scan the body to locate problem areas, before utilising universal energy to help your chakras heal and balance.

This is a practice that has existed for thousands of years across multiple cultures, from Ayurveda to the Chinese concepts of qi and meridians. By rebalancing your chakra during a healing session with Pak Dewa, not only will you feel more positive and energetic, you can also help to relieve physical symptoms, from stress and nervousness, as well as boost your self-esteem.
