Filomena Valentino

Sport: Yoga Vinyasa, Hatha

At University Sports since:
WiSe 2019/20

What fascinates me about my sport is...

... that it's not just a sport where you burn calories or build muscle, but a metaphor for life itself. Meeting the inner and outer struggles on the mat helps me to deal with struggles in life differently. I'm also fascinated by the return from the head-heavy, which is so prevalent in our society, to the beauty of movement and the body. Thus, yoga is far more than the physical, but a gateway to deep healing and insight into something far beyond our lives in human form.

What fascinates me about University Sports is...

... the sense of community. You can play so many different sports in one place, which gives students the opportunity to move their bodies without ever getting bored.

When I'm not practicing my sport...

... I study psychology, but I like to meditate and sing. I also love to be in nature.

My motto is:

‚Grace can take you places where hustle can’t’ - Elizabeth Gilbert
