 I teach an harmonious combination of these 2 beautiful modalities, directly from the heart…
In my classes we slow down to became stronger. We learn to be gentle with ourselves, in order to be gentle with everyone and everything around. Moving the body and the breath to discover and unveil the space and the light within, to enhance self-love and create acceptance and worthiness by connecting with the energies that are continuously supporting us.
I am also passionate about the healing potential of Essential Oils. I like to incorporate these amazing gifts from Mother Nature during practice to shift and raise frequencies.
