Instructor’s BIO
Ever since I could remember, I knew I was different.

When I was 9 my grandfather came to me in a dream to say goodbye. I was unaware he was dying of cancer; he passed away that same morning. At 16 I told my best friend she was pregnant before she knew it and at 17 the same with my older sibling… These were things that I just knew intuitively, without any explanation or logic. What I didn’t know however was that I was an empath who was struggling to understand her gifts. And so in efforts of fitting in to societal norms, I fought hard to hide them.

In 2004, I graduated college and moved to DC with a promising career, relationship, a beautiful home, and a very comfortable lifestyle to go with it. I thought I had reached success especially as a first generation Latina who migrated to the US at the ripe age of 6. However inside I was still struggling; to belong, to feel true love and happiness, and to not feel guilty for not being happier. Go figure.

At 31, my health, family, and relationships were challenged in profound ways. I found myself practicing Yoga as a way to retreat. Every time I rolled my mat out I’d feel more connected, grounded, and with purpose. Slowly everything started to shift and align in a way I would have never planned but am so grateful for. My habits changed, my perspective changed, even my desires shifted.

Fast forward 5 years to the peak of a battle between what I thought society wanted from me and what I wanted for myself, I decided to cede life as I knew it and surrender to the innate wisdom that was shifting my life.

I donated all of my belongings and went on a backpacking journey through Southeast Asia where I immersed myself in ancient healing arts including, Yoga, Ayurveda, Thai massage, energy work and other spiritual practices. I had a deep and inexplicable feeling this was my life purpose – to use these ancient practices to heal myself and help others [heal] from the traumas brought on by life.

Today, I can honestly say I am living my best and most authentic life and I know you can too. I have accepted the calling of my heart and believe these gifts were meant to be shared with the world. The healing journey is not easy but I hope you know, you are not alone. I hope you know you are capable of healing yourself. I hope you know how much you deserve to live your best life today.

I look forward to being part of this journey with you.
