I’m here to support you on your yoga journey and to inspire you to uncover your own joyous movement flow. Doing it all in a safe and friendly space
My yoga journey
It began many years ago. My brother gave me a yoga mat and some blocks, I didn’t know that much about yoga or yoga blocks, I just ended up putting them under pot plants! Back in 2003, I was doing a lot of mat Pilates. A couple of years later I went to my first yoga class and I liked it, a lot! I started practicing yoga every now and then, I did yoga at home with online videos and DVD’s and I attended weekly Ashtanga classes.
I felt so great after every class, my mind was calmer, my body was more relaxed and I wanted to understand why? I started practicing more frequently and some years ago I considered joining a yoga teacher training to learn more about yoga and go deeper into the practice.
And so my yoga teacher journey began. You can learn more about my training and certifications here.

My dance story
Where do I even begin? I’ve danced since I can remember. My first memories are from the neighborhood parties we use to have on the weekends in our outdoor garage space. The weather was hot, humid, sunny and the merengue beats had my tiny feet going crazy.
Since then I’ve been attending weekly dance classes. I’ve danced everything from Latin jazz, jazz ballet, street dance, tribal fusion belly dance, and Bollywood dance.
But most of all I love to just let loose and let my intuition guide my movements
Leading and teaching group classes
In 2011, out of the blue, a friend asked me if I wanted to start teaching Zumba classes and I said yes. I attended a Zumba Fitness instructor training and started teaching shortly after. I taught at gyms and held weekly private group classes for about three years.
In 2018 I decided to start my own style of dance workout classes. These classes are inspired by the chakras and are super fun, energetic, and liberating. We sweat, laugh, and dance our hearts out.
Hula hooping love
Late one evening in late December 2010, I was searching for something, a practice one could start to calm one’s mind. A video of a woman with the biggest ring around herself caught my attention. I clicked on it and after those 4-minutes, I was home. I had found my kind of moving meditation.
I was absolutely mesmerized and instantly ordered a hula hoop. Every free moment I would practice watching videos and experimenting with my hula hoop. I was blue all over, my kitchen floor and ceiling were colored and scared from the gaffer tape, my light bulbs were broken but I was in the flow.
Teaching Hula Hooping/Hoopdance
In 2011 I got certified to teach hula hooping so I could have more friends to hoop with. After I’d taught nearly all my friends to hula hoop, I started teaching anyone who came my way. For almost three years, I taught women, men, kids, and traveled to new places to teach and learn more. I taught classes and workshops in several countries and to all kinds of amazing human beings.
This circle of joy has opened my world to new possibilities and new realizations. It has taught me so much about myself and about life. It’s my go-to bliss accelerator, my dance partner, and one of the reasons why I’m a more confident woman today.
I love to guide people and see them get lost in their own flow
I hope to dance, hula hoop, or practice yoga with you too.
