WHO WE ARE
My name is Gabriele Andreoli, and Vajraghata is the approach to yoga that I have developed after 13 years of live teaching with thousands of students.
I was born and live in Milan, Italy, where I started cultivating my interest in Eastern physical and spiritual arts since early childhood. I got an MA in Indian Philosophy in 2002, and soon after started practicing Ashtanga, followed by countless other styles and paths.
I always felt like the odd one out though, especially in the teaching community, as I tend to be allergic to any excess of spiritual purity, sentimentalism and obsession with physical performance and aesthetics.
Honestly, I don’t think the people who originally came up with yoga 5000 years ago were as prissy as we are today.
They were badasses.
So a little while ago I started offering classes based on my own understanding and sensitivity, which is pretty rough and wild really, and I was myself startled by how beneficial and fun it was for everybody.
I named it Vajraghata, which means being struck by thunderbolt, because of the great intensity of this practice.
