About our teachers :
Julia is a french and american yoga teacher who started to practice twelve years ago different types of yoga and body movement activities while travelling and teaching in different parts of the world like Paris, New-York, San Francisco, Shanghai and Barcelona where she lives now. She teaches Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin and Restorative Yoga.
"Having grown up in a spiritual environment, I felt connected to Yoga since childhood. I think Yoga is a precious knowledge that can be learned and studied for a lifetime, my yoga practice is helping me deeply on an everyday basis to live in full harmony and I am so grateful to be able to share this knowledge with others. To experience what I would call the yoga “magic”, we only need our body, presence and motivation. It is a profound physical and spiritual experience."
Melania is originally from Tuscany, Italy but she has a nomadic soul. She was two years old when she discovered India for the first time, playing with monkeys and Indian kids in Kerala.
Thanks to her unconventional family she has been absorbed since her young age into Oriental culture, Indian tradition, and Macrobiotic diet and philosophy.
In 2008 she left Italy, moved by an inner call to go for deeper Spiritual growth.
Since then she has been living and traveling in several countries all around the world learning on various Permaculture Projects where she discovered an inner joy and power in connecting with mother earth.
Melania loves to take care of the Zee gardens and the Zee kitchen where she
cooks creative, colorful Macrobiotic vegan dishes mostly made with our vegetables and herbs.
She believes that the universal energies of nature are absorbed through the
foods we eat and transmute into our thoughts, emotions, and actions.
Melania is also a committed yoga student, practitioner, and teacher. Her desire to
learn and teach yoga took her to India a number of times but she finally completed
her 800 h yogic studies in 2017 in Australia at the Byron Yoga Centre with her senior teacher John Ogilvie.
Tapas, discipline is a natural attitude in her approach to practice. She has been practicing Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Mysore Style in her early mornings for the last three years, following the guidance of her Indian teacher Sharmila Desai in Morjim, Goa.
Peppi is originally from the island of Malta. He is an experienced ecological designer, a certified permaculturist, alternative farmer, teacher, consultant, and also the founder of the Permaculture Research Foundation for Malta. He is the visionary behind the Bahrija Oasis project Malta which was an ambitious permaculture project on a dry, windy, and arid landscape since 18 years ago. His vision & design has bloomed the landscape with carefully designed & naturally occurring biodiversity and attracted many individuals, groups, reporters & documentary filmmakers.
Peppi has also ignited the vision for ZEE and he is now busy planting the forest, saving seeds, building interesting structures, growing food, teaching, sometimes surfing, and reaching out to others who form part of the Zee Community
