I’ve been teaching Yoga and guiding meditation throughout my travels around central america. My recent study of Air Yoga in New York granted me with additional knowledge in the infinite world of moves. I have met many inspirational guides and have studied under charismatic and masterful teachers. I have been sharing and teaching this passion for years and my broad experience in dance and movement allows me to transfer my caring devotion into the hearts of my students through all the different practices I offer.
