Life is a beautiful journey and each second counts. Every time we are on our Yoga mat, we have the choice to connect to the source of healing energy, which makes us feel inspired, content and fully connected to our true nature. When we feel our bodies, mind and souls connected to the fountain of wellness, we feel empowered to achieve the life of our dreams.
My intention in each yoga class is to help you find those ways of connection, where the inner light shines and we feel complete. Body, mind and soul feel at home. Choosing different yoga styles like Hatha Yoga with active and creative movements, Gaia Yoga with conscious healing sounds, Restorative Yoga to rest deeply and restore each cell of the body, Therapeutic Yoga to align your physical body expanding your intention, and different ways of active and passive Meditations. We will have a lot of fun while flowing, awakening and expressing the love and beauty of our souls.
Practicing yoga on our own is fun, but sometimes having someone to play with while doing yoga, is even more fun. In this workshop you will work with a friend or partner for a whole sequence of Yoga by 2, sharing laugher, balances, stretches, dynamic movements, asanas and more. Like the expression says: “Unity makes the force”. Price: $35
Bio-creation is the Art of connecting the best of “myself”. Bringing you inner potential into the light. With the feet on earth and the arms stretched to the sky, we dive deep into the desires of the soul and create a map of the life of your dreams. Raising the vibratory frequency of your emotions and understanding the process of directing your own energy into joy, abundance and wellness. We will learn to let go of old patterns and recognize the essence of our soul… Remembering that a mind at peace is a powerful mind. Price: $40
Awakening the Senses
In this workshop we will travel through all the senses, awakening the inner light and power within us. It will be an extraordinary journey through the inside of our being, using food, music, movement, essential oils, silence and more…. As a deep meditation we will discover the senses as a conscious celebration of life and the present moment. Price: $35
***Package price for all three workshops is $95
