Semi-private Yoga Classes, Private one to one, Thai Massage, Ayurveda workshop, courses, Online Training and Consultations

Raffaella has trained and experience in many applications of Yoga including yoga therapy for chronic lower back pain and sciatica, yoga for scoliosis, Sound Healing, Reiki, Ayurveda Yoga Therapy, Ayurvedic Nutrition and life-style, Thai Yoga Massage. 

What to expect

 Raffaella's style: CSB Yoga: Yoga for Core, Spine and Balance in the mind-body system. Yoga for health and happiness.

Our classes will make you feel like you are in a very special retreat, a safe place to relax, release tension and focus on yourself. The small numbers in the class means you will get to know the group and I will get to know your needs which helps me tailor the class to be more personal.

At TBY Yoga studio we use equipment that are not normally available in other studios or yoga classes: scarves, belts, block, wedges, inversion chair, yoga wheel, yoga sandbags, life music Sound Bath, etc. Here we offer shared-private classes, hence numbers varies from 1 or 2 people to max 6. 

Our style is based on classical Ayurveda Yoga Therapy and Yoga Therapy for Chronic lower back pain, Yoga nidra and Sound Bath for deep relaxation where the brain take a complete rest:  the best of both world, modern and old science in healing and restoring health.

Stress is the leading cause of many chronic conditions, modern science has proved that yoga {including Pranayam (breathing technique), Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation) and sound healing, to be effective in chronic pain, anxiety and stress related conditions.   

Our sequence of yoga movements and poses focus on:

  • freeing up and realigning your spine
  •  reconnect with your body, developing coordination and balance
  •  building tone and strength
  • increasing the range of movement and flexibility 
  • improve physically and mentally.  
  • total deep relaxation and reduction of chronic pain.



Yoga for healing, yoga as a work-in not a fitness work-out. Modern concept of work-out and fitness focus on performance, body-mass ratio, statistics and comparisons, a 'no-pain-no-gain' mentality which often results in injury.

Here we practice Yoga for healing:

  • correct use of the body  to free up tension, reduce pain and reinstate the natural balance.
  • Movements to reduce compression of the spine, you will feel less back pain. 
  • Reduced tension in back, neck, shoulders area. 
  • Body awareness to recognise imbalances, posture misalignment and weak muscles.
  • Structural yoga, spinal balancing movements, and correct use of the core to support the spine and each movement.
  • practice of proper breathing: increasing lung capacity and oxygenating you body and brain. {Pranayama}
  • Deep relaxation and de-stressing techniques.
  • Sound Healing 
  • Yoga Nidra - Yogic Sleep is a guided meditation that induce deep relaxation.
  • A retreat experience every week. 


Thank you for some truly inspiring yoga these last few weeks.
