Gianna is also a certified Yoga instructor from the YogaMea school of Misano Adriatica ( The duo will be participating in the freestyle category and is absolutely thrilled to meet the other participants of the competition. The massage they will perform is the 4-hands massage “Synchro Abhyanga” (that implies the two therapists have developed a deep entente): with heated oils, the two simultaneously and rhythmically apply pressure and “knead” the muscles and elongate them, as if they are dancing. The purpose of this massage is to calm the cerebral hemispheres, as well as to stimulate blood- and lymphatic- circulation. Moreover, the massage promotes the relaxation at joint and muscular level, thus reducing anxiety and fostering emotional ease.
