Today I practice, study, and facilitate workshops, group and personalized practices in Copenhagen; following the Tradition of TIRUMALAI Krishnamacharya.
Born and raised in Martinez, Argentina; I also lived in Costa Rica and Philadelphia. As well as being a Sincere Yoga Practitioner and Certified Instructor, I work as a freelance Life Centered Innovation and Business Design Consultant with a Collaborative and Facilitating approach. Curious Barista, in my spare time I am a serious photographer, love to discover the world we live in, volunteer some hours, and practice sport related activities.
There is more teachers following this tradition in Scandinavia, Europe and the world, but I couldn’t find anyone here in Denmark or Copenhagen. So if you are reading this, please reach out to me. It would be nice to share our experiences.
Between 2011 and 2013, I completed the Yoga Teacher Training within the Tradition of Krishnamacharya in Argentina.
During this 500 hours certified program, supported by the Krishnamacharya Healing & Yoga Foundation (KHYF) and the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram (KYM) from India; I studied and experienced the following subjects with Juan Pablo Martín, Gonzalo Rico Peña -my mentor-, Vanesa Sacca, Gabriela Binello, Lilita Engelmann and Chichi Zenga:
- Facilitate personalized Yoga practices, adapted to the individual.
- Facilitate personalized therapeutic Yoga practices, adapted to the individual. Supervised by a mentor.
- Facilitate group Yoga practices.
- Human Anatomy
- Philosophy of Yoga
- History of Yoga
Some of the tools used in this tradition include (but are not limited to): postures (Asana), breath regulation (Pranayama), lifestyle suggestions (Vihara-niyama), chanting (Mantra), visualizations / affirmations (Bhavana), gestures (Mudra), and guided self-inquiry (Svadhyaya).
As Yoga Instructor my responsibilities are:
to practice continuously under supervision of a mentor, in my case Gonzalo Rico Peña. Studied permanently different aspects of Yoga. Facilitated practices adapting them depending on the situation and needs of students at that moment, also know as viniyoga.
During this practices you will breath, you might experience a challenge with in your body, breath and/or mind; having the opportunity to discover different aspects of yourself.
Working always from what is possible now, towards what is not. Because of this, everyone is welcome to join this practices. Regardless if you have previous experience or not.
Often I participate in workshops facilitated, following this tradition, mainly by the previous mentioned teachers, Kausthub Desikachar and Frans Moors.
Some achievements as Yoga Instructor:
- Having a wonderful Satsanga (group of study) to be able to consult any time there is need to.
- Designing and facilitated personalized practices as well as workshops both in Spanish and English in Argentina and Denmark, for people from all around the world.
- 2017 workshop about Prānāyāma at Copenhagen Yoga Festival.
- In 2015, until moving to Denmark, I collaborated teaching at Yogabaires Teacher Training Program within the same tradition in Argentina.
2009 was the year where I discovered and started practicing Yoga.
Guided by Nicole Smith from Pacific Yoga Philly, I was introduced to general aspects of practicing Yoga, daily practice, the Yoga Sutras and other texts about the topic.
READ ABOUT SOME EXPERIENCES WITH ME
Federico er en dygtig konceptmager og jeg vil gerne give ham min varmeste anbefaling. Vi har nu i over et år arbejdet sammen i en konstellation, hvor vi er hinandens sparringspartnere og læremestre. Federico som instruktør i yoga og jeg som lærer i dansk. Noget-for-noget i en proces hvor vi giver og tager af et godt hjerte til hinanden. Det er en meget berigende og lærerig proces, som har udviklet sig meget fra første møde hvor vi ikke kendte hinanden til i dag hvor vi har opbygget et venskab og tillidsforhold, der gør at vi ubesværet taler om alt mellem himmel og jord. Federico er engageret, vedholdende og loyal; man kan regne med ham. Som samarbejdspartner er han også god fordi han både er analytisk skarp og kreativ. Han er i stand til at komme op med nogle originale løsninger, som de færreste ville være kommet på.
I have known Federico for a year as my yoga teacher. He has not only shown his professional skills but also his tremendous personal values. He is very devoted to his students and he is a very responsible teacher. I highly recommend Federico Di Fresco for any endeavor he chooses to pursue.

Federico have been under an intense yoga training in the Krishnamacharya Tradition, I´ve been working with him as a mentor and teacher and I can say that he really involves with Yoga. Regarding how he teaches he´s always planning his classes in advance and remains open to adapt according to the students and circumstances. He has skills in course planning of asana, prayanama and mantras. He also can present Yoga Sutras concepts and apply it to everyday life.
