*Rosalia Stellacci

She decided to study of Yoga through the research of Applied Physics and Quantum Physics. Between 2001 and 2002, she worked in the United State as a researcher at the Institute of the research on the Gravitational Waves predicted by Einstein, where she followed courses on Yoga philosophy and on influence of consciousness on reality. In 2005, she collaborated with the Oncological Radiotherapy Hospital, S.G.Moscati, in Taranto, and she became passionate about the study of alternative therapies and medicine, such as Ayurveda, Plantar Reflexology, Pranotherapy and Chinese Medicine. She graduated in Applied Physics in Pisa University and in Biomedical Physics in Naples Federico II University di Napoli. She started practicing Yoga in 2008 and teaching it since 2010. She is certified as a teacher of Vinyasa Flow Yoga RYT-200 by the Yoga Alliance with Jacqueline Heysel, she studied Ashtanga yoga with David Swenson and she is now a student of Sri Manju Jois, thanks to whom she began learning the Vedic  Mantras. Moreover, she studied Thetha Healing, Shiatsu and Raja Meditation.

For four years she has been in retreat in the ancient quarter of Matera, the Sassi. Her aim was to live according to the Yoga style, in complete ascetism, in total isolation and dedicating herself to meditation and the development of the siddhi (mental capacities which can be acquired through meditation). Since 2011 she has been living the state of ‘Awakened’. Since 2012, she has been president of the Yoga and Meditation Research Centre “Al Jalil Yoga”, in Matera, and she teaches courses and seminars about quantum physics and Yoga. In her teaching, she combines the theoretical knowledge of the Yoga with the scientific competences.



There is no greater blessing for our souls than to be in the presence of a Divine Master and the offering we make in return for the gifts that they bestow on us is called Dakshina.


The practice comes from the Vedas which teach about the disciples’ sacred duty to make offerings to the master who imparts the highest knowledge - the knowledge of the Self.


The word comes from the Sanskrit, da, meaning “offering” or “giving”; kshi, meaning “to abide” or “to dwell in”; and na, meaning “knowledge.” The dakshina is considered a duty, or dharma, and is part of the universe's cycle of giving and receiving, balancing the energy between you and the Guru. He washes our karma and the more open-hearted and giving we are to him, the greater the karmic exchange.


There is a mistaken belief, particularly in the west, that spirituality and healing should be given for ‘free’, as we do not always understand the energy mechanism of giving and receiving or the changes that happen to us on a soul level.  We have all experienced, however, that the more we give in life, whether it be love, money, service or whatever, the more we reap the rewards of happiness in our lives.


When thinking about how much dakshina to give, rather than calculating from the place of the mind, connect with your loving, open heart and ask yourself what the Divine blessing your soul has received means to you and how best to honour it.


The decision you make is between you and the Divine.
