Hello beautiful human being! Thank you for finding your way to my yoga website.
I'm Salvo Santagata, a certified yoga teacher with a deep passion for sharing the transformative power of yoga with others. My yoga journey began a few years ago when I was 17 and searching for my purpose in life. It was during this time that I discovered yoga for the first time and found a safe anchor to escape the stresses of daily life.
After moving to London at 21, I worked as a manager in luxury fashion for over 5 years and experienced firsthand how fast-paced and overwhelming big city life can be. Yoga became my peaceful escape, a way to recenter myself and become more aware of my own body and emotions, helping me cope with my anxiety.
I completed my first 200hr certification in Hatha & Vinyasa Flow, recognized by Yoga Alliance UK, under the supervision of senior teacher Hassan Hassan at the beautiful Breeze Yoga studio in Beckenham Junction. Since then, I've continued to refine my skills as a yoga teacher, completing an additional 25hr YTT in Mobility Yoga with Joa Gonzales & Miles Mortensen in January 2020 and my first 50hr in Rocket Yoga under the supervision of Marcus Veda and Hannah
Whittingham in October 2022.
I'm deeply grateful for the wisdom and guidance of my mentors, and I strive to pay it forward by sharing my knowledge and passion for yoga with others. I believe that yoga is for everyone, regardless of age, body type, or level of experience, and I aim to create a safe, supportive, and inclusive environment for all of my students. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced practitioner, I welcome you to join me on the mat and explore the infinite possibilities of this ancient practice.
In November 2023, I had the absolute pleasure of completing my first 30hr certification in Yin Yoga and breath-work with Jeff. This different style of yoga have allowed me to explore other aspects of the yoga practice and expand my knowledge and expertise.
