She has experienced in her personal life the transformative power of breath, mindfulness, meditation, and asana, her beginnings with Iyengar and Vinyasa yoga helped her to make an effective connection with her body.

In 2019 she moved to India to complete 300 YTT and from then on she's been living half-year in India half time in Mexico hosting teacher training, retreats, and workshops.

She has created unique flowing classes that connect postures with breath and provide dynamism and creativity. Guiding students to reconnect with their bodies and experience internal and external changes.

Her philosophy when it comes to teaching a yoga class is to forever remain a student. Her goal is to simply be a mediator, to pass along the knowledge that she is constantly seeking to absorb.
