ॐ HARI OM
I choose LOVE as my path… enjoying each moment of this incredible life… finding every situation as an opportunity to grow, to expand and become a better human.
Always discovering new aspects of myself by getting out of my comfort zone.
I find that breath is my favorite tool to return to myself, to be fully present in the moment.
In silence is where I can really listen to my heart, my beautiful and innocent heart who always knows what is best for me!
I am fascinated by how complex and magnificent we are, the body, the mind, the emotions, working together so we can live in this amazing planet, full of beauty!
My biggest passion is sharing my practice, my life, through Yoga, Breathwork, Guided Meditation and Soulful Words, Dance, Massage, and lots of laughter.
I’ve done different courses and trainings including Hatha Yoga, Aligned Flow, Yoga Therapy and Ovarian Breathing.
I am forever grateful for this existence, for my life and for every person that is reading these words…
