I discovered Yoga in 2005 living in my hometown, Maracaibo, Venezuela. I came to yoga as most beginners do: with little knowledge, a simple need to get back in to my body, and a desire to find a way to find balance from the stressful life of studying western medicine. I had no idea that yoga would become a lifelong journey of self-discovery and healing.

I studied four years of Western medicine from 2001-2005. I transitioned from studying western medicine to studying yoga and healing arts in the Bay area. I became a certified Yoga instructor and completed the Master level of Reiki in 2007.

I have studied different meditation techniques, Theta Healing™ and Ayurvedic Diet and Lifestyle. My studies in Yoga are based in traditional and therapeutic approach, including the following: Sivananda, Prenatal & Post Natal Yoga, Yoga for Scoliosis, and Adaptive Yoga therapy for Cancer & Chronic Illnesses. My current Yoga practice and inspiration comes from the teachings of Shadow Yoga, Restorative, Deep Relaxation (Yoga Nidra) and Adaptive Therapeutic Yoga.

When working together, I integrate the wisdom from all of the traditions that have inspired me, along with my love for nature, sound healing, and guided imagery. My intention is to create a environment that incorporates what may be most suitable for the capacities and goals of an individual or a group.

My classes will give you an opportunity to feel inspired, rejuvenated, stronger and more grounded and open in your body.

I look forward to working with you!
