I walked into a yoga studio for the first time on July 2014 and ever since I have faithfully practiced yoga six days a week, sometimes even twice a day! I like to describe that encounter as “love at first sight”. As a student of mysticism and spiritual teachings for decades, I found yoga to be a comprehensive philosophy and practical way to help me live in the present moment and revel in the presence of the divine within. I understand yoga as “the string that connects all the dots in my life” - mental and physical health, career, and my relationship with all sentient beings, Mother Earth and the Divine. Experiencing an opening in my own body and mind, ten months later I received a Yin Yoga certification and with the unending support from my husband Luis, friends and family by July 2016 I became a 200 Hour- Registered Yoga Teacher as approved by the Yoga Alliance. Now teaching yoga, I consider every moment as a way of “paying it forward,” and hope to inspire others to walk the path of yoga the same way my teacher did in my days as an aspiring yogi. Nowadays, I am getting my feet wet in Ashtanga yoga, and I love to teach Vinyasa and Yin yoga.
