Let’s try to understand what it means to take care of ourselves and hold our own goals in high regard. How were we taking care of a plant?
Gianluca : “Taking care of us means, first of all , becoming aware of our essence and the reason why we are on this earth, or our mission. We need to understand how to relate to natural energies , check what makes us feel good, what are the most appropriate places and activities for us and eliminate everything that is wrong for us. Following the similarity of the plant, to grow we need a suitable place and with the right degree of exposure to the sun, an adequate fertilizer and of a continuous watering.

It is especially in times of crisis that we need to be motivated, our greater awareness and serenity will allow us to make choices more calmly and also to find the time and the way to lend a hand to others. This is possible when we know who we are and what we want , we will be so strong that nothing can disturb us. This is why we invented ‘LifeMaster – You in the center’ , our cycle of experiential seminars which allows people to find their core and generate the energy necessary for personal and professional success.
Recede in te ipsum wrote Seneca to Lucilius. How important is it to be alone to be better with others?

When did the idea for the Studio Professional Trainer project come about ?
Gianluca: “I worked as a trainer for multinationals such as Nokia, Apple, 3 and so on. Carla, who is my wife, worked for a long time as a sales manager at a training school.

We have a passion for Neuro Linguistic Programming and we are the first to put it into practice.

One summer, while we were in the splendid natural setting of Sardinia, there was an illumination, especially from the point of view of our soul … we understood and realized how ancient practices of yoga and meditation in general could help us to ” become “ourselves and live life with simplicity and naturalness.

We were the first to experience all this. Then we did some experimental groups and the results of the participants were significant in terms of recovering the relationship with themselves, identifying talent and their potential , clarity of objectives, effective communication, people’s ability to reactivate their energies. doze off and channel your energies effectively. And here we are! ”

Gianluca: “Of course, even dreams must be constantly cultivated and renewed. Very often we continue to think in a static way about that dream we had as children and its failure to fulfill it turns into remorse or nostalgia for the past.
