Life has brought me from Colombia to Trondheim, where I have been living since 2013. I enjoy the freedom of traveling, meeting new people, being surprised, learning from foreign cultures and exploring new places. I like change, but deep within me, I keep my Colombian roots.
I love good food! I enjoy cooking and eating fruit, vegetables and salads. I am curious and attracted to art, corporal movements, wellness and spirituality. This curiosity led me to learn Reiki, then I was initiated in the 3 levels of the Usui System of Natural Healing Reiki.
My first contact with yoga was as a child, attending yoga sessions with my mother. Some years later, I decided to discover this wonderful world and tried several teachers and schools. I felt attracted to Bhakti Yoga and at the same time Ijoined a yoga teacher training course. I completed this course at Sita Ram Yoga Inbound Academy in Colombia. The focus of my studies have been Hatha, Ashtanga, Karma, and Bhakti Yoga. Immediately afterwards I started working as yoga instructor at the same institute.
Yoga and yoga lifestyle has had a great influence on my life. In order to develop my knowledge and experience I lived and worked in an ashram in Ecuador (Vrindavan Jardines Ecológicos). Here I worked as yoga teacher for guests and gained deeper knowledge in Yoga Philosophy. This beautiful farm gave me wonderful experiences which I will always keep close to my heart. However, my curiosity does not end and for this reason at the beginning of 2016 I attended a yoga therapy education at Yoga Vidya Gurukul in India. This experience brought new knowledge into my life which I am happy to share here in Trondheim
