Claudia is a Mindfulness Instructor, but also a Translator, Interpreter and Tour Designer, with a passion for cinema, travel and Argentine tango. She has lived in several places in Italy and abroad (UK, Belgium, USA, Luxembourg).
In 2014 she stumbled upon Mindfulness and had an immediate insight – she soon started and completed the teacher training pathway with the School of Medicine within the University of Massachusetts, where Jon Kabat-Zinn founded the Center for Mindfulness and designed the now renowned MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction) Protocol. She has also been one of the interpreters for the Center of Mindfulness’ senior staff when offering teacher training courses and participating in conferences in Italy and regularly participates as a meditator and as a translator in events organised by the Buddhist Meditation Centre Pian dei Ciliegi (Piacenza, Italy).
In line with her diverse interests and lifestyle, she likes to apply this ‘Mindful approach’ to different contexts (personal development, education, corporate, caretakers, health), languages (Italian and English) and locations (Sicily, Rome, Milan, Luxembourg – and, of course, online).
She has completed two courses of Mindfulness for Children and Adolescents, with Mindful Schools (2015) and Amy Saltzman (2017), and one on Mindful Eating (2015) with Jan Chozen Bays. In 2017 she met John Niland and immediately joined his Self-Worth Safari, becoming one of the first associates of the Self-Worth Academy. She is constantly adding new inputs and skills, e.g. following training courses in literary/poetry-therapy, dance/tango-therapy and more, which are promptly integrated into her personal and professional practice.
She has now offered several MBSR cycles, numerous workshops, guided Mindful Walks in nature and is constantly planning new Mindfulness-based activities (please check the Calendar).
