When did you start with yoga and how long have you been practicing?

My first contact with Yoga was when I was 15 years old and I didn’t know what it was all about, I was only interested in practicing my URDHVA DHANURASANA (wheel pose). However, it was three years ago when I began my journey and I became more than grateful for the Karma Yoga that the Universe sent me, ever since then I have been practicing every day, both as a Student & as a Yoga Teacher.

Why is yoga important in your life?

Yoga became my path to balance because it allows me to create harmony in my thoughts, actions, and deeds, to be kind to others and to myself. It removes my often harsh or unjust judgment of people, brings down the restlessness and anxiety in me, and brings me on the path to a calm, peaceful & meaningful way of life.
Saying that I do believe that Yoga is more than important to me because it is essential and my reason to keep moving forward with my goals in life.

What advice would you give to someone who is starting their yoga journey?

There is no single incorrect way to practice Yoga, find your own rhythm and comfort. Don’t stress yourself out by watching others with fantastic posture, it’s a journey that few have started before.

How do you include yoga in your daily life?

My day is perfect when I start to practice gratitude for another day through Suria Namaskar (sun salutation) & mindful meditation, other days are so busy that Yin Yoga to end my day suits me very well, and by all means, before teaching I do my own practice and try to find my edge so that I can be available to guide my students with awareness and wisdom.

What can I expect when I join one of your classes?

The purpose of my classes focuses on the development of physical & mental health, aimed at all body types and levels. Since I believe that you can develop better awareness through yoga, don’t be surprised if you find mindful meditation and mantras for healing included in my classes, as I will guide you through both the conscious and unconscious states of mind, allowing you to find out how precious it is to connect your breath with each asana, moving smoothly and strongly, just like the waves of the sea from my Native Land.

What is your favorite asana?

Sukhasana (Easy Pose): Because it is the best meditation posture that allows me to reconnect my mind and body.
