WONDERFUL WAY to START MY SATURDAY MORNING with AN ASHTANGA PRIMARY SERIES CLASS in FLORENCE!! NICCOLO didn't speak much English .... but he didn't need to ... he led the class perfectly with a mix of Sanskrit and Italian .... making it easy for ANYONE (ME) to understand!! GREAT CLASS ... GREAT ADJUSTMENTS ... and oh so very peaceful ... would definitely recommend this class!!

Cosy yoga studio in the very centre of Florence. The teachers are mostly Americans or English speaking. You flow fast through the asanas and the practice is very enjoyable. Not recommended for beginners, the asanas are not very well explained by the teachers and the support is very little when the class is crowded.

I'm pretty active and while at home I run, practice yoga, play ice hockey and do various other activities. Personally, Yoga compliments all my other activites and prevents or has cured previous injuries. One of my favorite things to do is travel, and during my travels, I have found yoga is the easiest activity to do aside from using the gym at a local hotel, which can get old. Practicing yoga while travelling lets you participate in the culture by meeting interesting yogi's and even hear yoga instruction in another language. My first international yoga experience was a couple of years ago in Sweden at It's Yoga, a yoga chain in europe. When I was in Italy in Jan 2013, I found It's Yoga in Florence and decided to check a class out. As I was walking towards the studio, I noticed another quaint and homely yoga studio, 19r yoga & pilates, with a class in progress. The studio was full and it looked very local. I am a big fan of supporting local business, thus decided to do a class there instead. When I walked in I was greeted by the owner Melissa Ferrar and she was very warm and welcoming. My first class was with a part time instructor whose name alludes me (but I think her last name was piccollo). As class started, Melissa came around and offered adjustments. The classes are mainly Rocket Ashtanga (I think its a vinyasa/ashtanga flow). I've really only done this type of yoga in europe. I'm usually in a full vinayasa flow back home. The instruction was amazing, everyone who worked there was very friendly and they offer instruction in English (which is rare). Later I learned, Melissa has a passion for travel and yoga. She also has a great story behind her journey to open her first studio. She and the instructors genuinely care about your experience and you can feel the warmth and love in the studio. It was unlike anyting I have experienced at a chain studio. Although the Yoga is fine at It's Yoga, I have realized that the extra kindness and warmth at a locally owned studio where the owner cares about each and every yogi's experience without judgement is what seperates a good studio from an amazing one such as 19r. This has been my best yoga experience in europe so far.

Two years ago I was moving to Florence for an undetermined length of time. 19R was recommended to me by another American living in Florence working for Apartments Florence, who I rented my apartment from.
Little did I know that this new beginning for me with yoga, (pilates was my thing), would lead to a "new best friend" in Melissa, the owner. She took such a personal interest in me and her encouragement kept me going. I would like to say that her studio is a melting pot of people and I acquired so many friends from these encounters.
I left Florence for a year and recently returned for another year. My first stop....19R and to see Melissa and her fabulous staff.
