Dedication. Expertise. Passion.
“Your own Self-Realization is the greatest service you can render the world.”
― Ramana Maharshi
Yoga, meditation, and work with energy are a way back to the self, to connect with the heart, consciousness and remind me of my true nature. It is a way to balance spirituality and grounding, not material realms with the matter.
My journey with yoga started in 2017. In November 2019 I completed my first 200h Yoga Teacher Training and Self Development in Thailand, Koh Phangan; and in February 2020 I completed 300h Yoga and Meditation Teacher Training according to Tantric and Mayan approach in Columbia. Also, I am a Reiki practitioner (Master Level).
Before my journey with yoga started, I was an athlete; I practiced long-distance running for 9 years. In 2015 I got an injury and I had to stop practicing advanced training. It was a very significant experience, as for the first time in my life my identity, central story, and function spayed like a soap bubble. After that, deep in the heart, I felt like I was missing something.
So I traveled the world searching not sure what I was looking for, the meaning of life, the purpose, liberation from existential questions… And that is when I found a wave of spiritual peace, mental relief, and all the answers in yoga, meditation, self-inquiry, contact with nature, and with the essence of reality. I realized that what I was looking for, has always been present with me - deep inside of my true nature, and all the answers are in the present moment of the texture of eternity.
I was studying in New York and London, and I graduated with a Masters in Global Media and Transnational Communications. I would love to share with people what revived back life and breathed love into my existence; and to inspire others to open the hearts, pure the minds, take care of a healthy lifestyle, and allow themselves for unconditional presence in the absolute fullness of life regardless of the external circumstances because life is an extraordinary miracle, which too often we miss noticing, unfortunately…
It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.
It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.
It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon. I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life’s betrayals or have become shrivelled and closed from fear of further pain.
I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it, or fade it, or fix it.
I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own; if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, be realistic, remember the limitations of being human.
It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me is true. I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself. If you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul. If you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy.
I want to know if you can see Beauty even when it is not pretty every day. And if you can source your own life from its presence.
I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand at the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, ‘Yes.’
It doesn’t interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone and do what needs to be done to feed the children.
It doesn’t interest me who you know or how you came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the centre of the fire with me and not shrink back.
It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away.
I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.
