My Yoga path started since I lived in Cuba, familiarizing with Chinese culture at the Chinese Group Colony in Holguin, Cuba and the practice of Taichi where I also learnt some Meditation.
I was always interested in learning more Yoga because I was practicing myself with no basic knowledge, but it was a way to dedicate some time for my body and keep it healthy as well through Gymnastics, aerobics, running, weights and get deeper into my beliefs and religion which I was able to get to know more when I moved to Canada in 2006.
I met a nice couple Max and Mai who were practitioners of Falung Dafa, they guided me through their practice and meditation, "An interested practice that was persecuted in China".
Then, I met my husband who is a Buddhist and has a lot in common with my hobbies and he helped me to understand more about meditation,Qi Gong, the Chinese and Indian cultures, , which I was able to tight the links with my African practice and beliefs. During this journey I met our Master at "Ten Thousand Buddhas Sarira Stupa
Buddhist Temple", a beautiful place to visit where I found the peace and my shelter to study myself and familiarize with his teachings.

We practiced Yoga at home following Rodney Yee and at the YMCA where I met Monique Garreau and Sandi Maraldo (Both Yoga Instructors). Their teaching skills called my attention and interest to grow myself into the Yoga world. They introduced me to "Mandorla Yoga Institute" were I did my training.

Thank you to Jyoti Gini Soulankey my mentor, I got deeper into the practice and understand the compassion of the Yoga path as a participant and as a teacher. She also introduce our group into "The Hindu Community of Kitchener" as a way of learning different styles of Yoga. Her skills and knowledge made an awesome impact in my life and path.

My husband and I enjoy visiting all these temples as a way to absorb more knowledge and different practices as well as energized our body, mind and spirit and enjoy our peace.
