Mayra is a RYT-200 French-Peruvian yoga teacher and founder of Namastraveler. Her first approach to yoga was through Hatha yoga back in 2006. Later on she discovered the creativity, fluidity and core strengthening of Vinyasa. She then decided to travel to Mysore, India to deepen her knowledge about yoga and she got trained at Samyak Yoga Ashram to become a certified teacher. In love with the open air, she took her yoga practice to the water and also trained in Stand-Up Paddle Yoga in Bali, Indonesia. Her own yoga experience led her to look for a quiet and gentle practice to counterbalance her traveler § energetic esprit and got trained and certified in Yin Yoga in Ericeira, Portugal.
As a yoga teacher, she prepares multi-level classes where she gives instructions and guidelines according to everyone’s capacities as well as guided meditations to help clear the mind, focus thoughts and relax. She also offers yoga classes in French, English and Spanish.
“My hope is that through the practice of yoga, you'll find and enjoy a privileged moment for yourself, get surprised by your inner gifts & challenge you enough physically so you can begin to let go, quiet the mind and feel energized, relaxed and happy by the end of the class”.
