My name is Lucia Vimercati. I am Italian and I currently live in Brussels.
After working many years in sales and marketing for International Organizations, in particular in the travel and F&B sector, I decided to bring that phase of my life to an end.
Having always been passionate about yoga and healthy cooking, I decided to make a radical change in my studies, my working life and in my lifestyle in general.
Sharing with others what I learned and experimented on myself gives me great joy and allows me to learn more and more every day. I am available for Yoga classes, cookery lessons, to assist with shopping and to organize and participate in yoga and cooking trips and retreats.
In addition to Italian and English, I am fluent in German and French and I am happy to travel Worldwide.
I discovered yoga when I was a child and since 2004 I have been practising regularly at Centro Yoga Lila in Biassono (Italy) where in 2010 I completed my Yoga Teacher's Training and where, since the same year, I have been teaching my "Yoga in the kitchen" classes (a course in Ayurvedic, Macrobiotic and Vegan cuisine). In 2012 I started teaching Hatha Yoga and Meditation in Stuttgart (Germany) and offered my classes in various studios and organisations. In Brussels I currently teach Hatha Yoga and Restorative Yoga at Serendip Spa & Yoga, Brussels Yoga Loft and in the offices of the European Union and I offer regular Hormone Yoga workshops in various studios.
My yoga style is a synthesis of my teacher's training inspired to the classic Sivananda tradition and my recent trainings in restorative yoga and hormone yoga and is influenced by my personal practice in various styles and with different Teachers. I strongly support continuous education by participating regularly in workshops and trainings and through encounters with Masters and lots of meditation.
I am grateful to my teachers Giancarlo Garofalo and Paola Romanoni of Yoga Lila, Mario Esposito and Susanne Breuer of Purna Yoga, Dinah Rodrigues, Adelene Cheong, Shantala Sriramaiah, Chitra Sukhu and to all the other teachers and students I met during my practice, for helping me to grow, through Yoga, as a person, student and teacher.

Cooking has always been relaxing for me: working with the ingredients, using their shapes and colours and thinking of unusual combinations, makes me feel good and allows me to express my creativity.
I consider food as nourishment both for the physical body and the soul. I cook my recipes in harmony with nature, with a special eye to health, but never at the expense of taste. Already for many years I have been preparing dishes that contain no ingredients of animal origin, sugar or industrial products and I only use ingredients which are organic, seasonal and local. I have given my classes at Yoga Lila in Italy, at Volskshochschule in Stuttgart and various yoga studios in Brussels.
