I found Yoga 20 years ago or did Yoga find me? I was living as a college student in Mexico City, where I walked into someone's basement and into a variation of a ashtanga/vinyasa class. It was taught by a student who had practiced with Yoga in the US. Needless to say, I never looked back and have practiced different types of yoga styles ever since. More important than the physical aspect has always been the mental space that it created in my mind and consequently in my life.
A couple of years ago, life allowed me to take my studies further and I completed the 200 hour training with Daniel Orlansky and Liz Owen in 2015. In November 2016 I completed my 500h training with Jacqui Bonwell. In addition, I have become certified in Yoga Nidra Training with Jennifer Reis, Yin Yoga with Sagel Urlacher and “The balanced Athlete Training” with John Gillespie. I am feeling blessed to be studiying Yoga at this unique time, where the tradition is evolving and opening up to so many healing modalities.
My yoga classes focus on the therapeutic benefits of the mind and body connection that Yoga provides. I teach mindful and light hearted, funcional and slow vinyasa yoga, yin yoga, as well as restorative classes with a long relaxation (yoga nidra). I deeply believe that in our fast paced world relaxation is no longer a luxury but a necessity so that we can disconnect from the constant stream of information and reconnect to our inner stillness and our inner selves.

"Yoga is not a work- out, it’s a work- in. And this is the point of a spiritual practice; to open up our hearts and focus our awareness so that we can know what we already know and be who we already are.” Rolf Gates
