About

Sadhaka Pi: the mission of a lifetime

Sadhaka is a Buddhist term that refers to anyone highly devoted to practicing and studying the teachings of Buddhism. Sadhakas usually strive to live with wisdom and compassion and make an effort to be mindful of their thoughts and actions.

I teach kids and adults to become aware and in control of their bodies, with movements and their breath, boosting their self-confidence, and embark on a journey of self-discovery, and I’m here to do the same with you, helping you reach your greatest potential!

My vision

My vision is to create a vibrant and supportive global community of children and grown-ups excited to explore the power of mindfulness and movement through transformative experiences, such as my retreats and signature programs that enhance their self-confidence and physical abilities for the rest of their life.

My mission

My mission is to provide a safe and nurturing space for kids and adults to express themselves and develop a deeper understanding of their physical and mental capabilities. I aim for Sadhaka Pi to become a go-to for like-minded souls to go beyond their physical abilities and discover the power of mindful movement.

About your coach, Paola

My name literally means “small”. But my dreams were big, and I decided to chase them.

My passion for conscious movement started when I was just a little girl. I started as an athlete and eventually became a coach, which allowed me to share my experiences with younger gymnasts. After obtaining my Gymnastics Instructor Diploma in Italy, I began teaching children between the ages of 3 and 16.

I’ve coached various teams in Italy, but eventually, I decided to move to Thailand to teach gymnastics at an international primary school.

During my time there, I began my Yoga journey and earned several diplomas in holistic disciplines, including Traditional Thai Massage, Foot Reflexology, and Reiki.
Since 2016, I’ve been living in Dubai, teaching gymnastics and Yoga to kids and adults alike.

My goal as a fitness and wellness coach is to help people express themselves through the conscious use of their bodies. I aim to help them develop awareness and command of their movements and coordination, gain self-confidence, and trust in their physical and mental capabilities.
