Born and raised in Buenos Aires, Luciana Rial has had a love for tango ever since she was a little girl. Passionately dancing for 28 years and teaching for 24, her dance has explored diverse cultures and taught others the richness of her own. Having trained dancers throughout Europe and various countries around Latin America, her studio, home, and heart will always be in the world capital of the tango, Argentina.
Students from all over the globe travel to the heart of Buenos Aires to take classes at her studio, El Divino Abasto Tango. This famous dance studio has seen 70 members of the London Symphonic Orchestra take their very first steps, welcoming the youth Olympic athletes and hosting the opening night for participants of the G20 Summit.
Her philosophy is that anyone and everyone can dance once they understand the message behind the tango, a beautiful blend of sadness and sensuality.

Forest Therapy, or Shinrin Yoku, is the soulful practice of being in nature, which allows us to awaken our senses and reconnect with others, our natural surrounds, and ourselves. Watch the video here.
While most of the physiological benefits (such as the lowering of stress hormones, boosting the immune system and decreasing our blood pressure) come from the simple exposure to our natural environment, a guided Forest Therapy session follows a standard series of invitations that help participants reconnect, slow down and awaken their senses.
Based in Chile, Giovanna trained in France and is a fully-qualified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide with the US-based Association of Nature and Forest Therapy.
From a peaceful riverine forest in Chile’s Lake District, Giovanna gently guides participants from the comforts of their own gardens, a nearby park, or surrounded by their favourite house plants. It is an invitation to switch off, slow the pace, focus on your breathing and appreciate your surroundings.
