Mar y Sol Barquero
GUEST TEACHER BIO
Mar y Sol has a diverse portfolio of healing therapies reflecting her chosen path in life. Her passion for natural healing is inspired by her love of nature – a result of growing up in nature’s petri dish, Costa Rica.
Her Zen studies and philosophies unfurled when she traveled abroad as a teenager to Japan where she discovered the ancient art of Japanese archery, a traditional art she continues to explore and study. Japanese archery demands not only skill but discipline, humility, and mentorship – all elements that are echoed in her practices.
Inspired by her immersion in Eastern culture and philosophy, upon returning to Costa Rica, Mar Y Sol began practicing yoga and meditation. She committed herself to learning, at first locally in Costa Rica, and then in Canada, and ultimately in India.
Her study of Yoga philosophy and meditation under Himalayan masters is at the root of her core practice which intimately explores the relationship between the soul, the conscious mind, and the physical body. Masterfully Mar y Sol uses combinations of aromatherapy, touch, and movement to access and heal mind & soul imbalances.
Mar y Sol has over fifteen years of experience as a certified wellness and yoga instructor, and massage therapist with additional certifications in reiki, medical, and Swedish massage. She became fascinated with the medicinal powers of plants which inspired her to get her certification in Aromatherapy and to study more about medicinal plants and native plants.
Mar y Sol offers her expertise at Anamaya drawing on her breadth of teaching styles including dynamic stretching, slow and energetic flows, traditional hatha, restorative yoga and yoga nidra… as well as meditation techniques. Additionally, she will be teaching workshops in Aromatherapy for Wellness, deep relaxation in the workshop Bliss, and Play Fit. Mar y Sol can be easily recognized by her grounding spirit, disciplined patience, and infectious laugh.
She has the levity of a young spirit with the healing powers of an old soul.
