Yoga as an Art for Healing

I started to practice yoga in my home country, the Dominican Republic, when I was 18 years old. It came just natural to me and I haven't stopped ever since. I am deeply attracted to these ancient traditions intended to purify and bring balance to the body.

Since 2013 I began teaching and in my classes, I share what I know from my heart. On one hand, I put emphasis on learning how to breathe properly in a conscious way, and on the other hand, I strongly encourage strengthening the physical body.

Practicing Yoga has helped me awaken this longing for knowing my Soul and it has challenged me to keep it constant. I've found freedom through contentment and joy within myself. So I'm much more a student than a teacher who irrevocably needs to share this with others.
