Imagine being able to unite the peace and well-being you experience  on your yoga mat

with your true-self and every aspect of your life.

I know you can! And I would love to show you how.

My story

I am a bilingual (English and Spanish) mom, yogi, and a clean-simple living practitioner. Originally from Mexico, I have lived in various countries since my 20s. I am a certified yoga instructor registered with Yoga Alliance and hold a MSc. in Business. You can experience my teaching from a place of authenticity, focusing on vinyasa, flow, sensory awareness, and gentle based classes where students from all ages and backgrounds are welcome.

At the age of 24, after leaving everything behind to move to the other side of the world, I began feeling disoriented, lonely, and without clear direction. As a way to meet friends, and to redirect the stress of the move, I joined a gym where I tried yoga for the first time. Little did I know I would be meeting one of my most influential teachers ever, Birthe (RIP). At that very moment, my life would change for the better. I remember feeling at home – within my own skin – it felt intuitively right. It was not long after that first class, that I noticed how I’d gotten better at handling the challenges of my new life, how I was feeling better physically, and emotionally. I was hooked!

I am a lifelong yoga student and continue my studies under Jennifer Prugh as I wrap up my 500 hour certification in the JOY of Yoga program. Other influential teachers include Ann-Charlotte Monrad, Misako Matsuoka, Tias Little, Carrie Owerko, and others.

My classes continue to evolve by continuously growing and living through my learnings. I enjoy teaching based on my belief that we can all benefit from a practice that creates connection between our noisy, at times stressful, lives and the inner wisdom of the mind, body and breath.
