Immerse yourself in an inspiring place – Embrace creativity & Engage Intuition – Discover your purpose & passion – Deepen your practice & your life – Find your people – Feel good in your body

4 weeks of daily practices, trainings & workshops with transformative teachers, aimed at fine tuning your heart, body, mind and soul & inviting in a life of your dreams. You no longer have to choose between a weeklong retreat or an all day intensive teacher training to take your practice or your life to the next level. Our residency is designed to give you the time, space and support need for you to live your deepest purpose with a ferocious passion.

We noticed that most of the people going on a traditional yoga teacher training don’t actually want to or need to be teachers, but rather are looking for a way to shift their lives into being more connected to their body and their soul and to be able to express that into the world. However until our residency, there wasn’t an alternative, a program where you could study deeply and at the same time honor fully the unique moment on your path that you find yourself and we believe this will make you even a better teacher if that is the path that calls you.

We originally designed this residency because the traditional 200 hour Yoga Teacher Trainings are focused more on completing hours than on completing the soul. While traditional TT’s, accreditation dictates what is taught, in our program, growth and healing dictates what we teach. While in a normal teacher training the health and well-being of the body is often left behind, in our residency, how you feel in your body couldn’t be more important. While traditional teacher trainings hope that you transform as a byproduct of the course, our entire program is designed around this transformation.

So, while we designed this as an alternative to a 200 hour teacher training, we found that it is actually suited for anyone, artists, teachers, students, entrepreneurs, that is being called to live more from that heart.   Anyone that is longing to feel more connected to their purpose and craves to do so in beautiful community.

    Born in Spain, I have had the pleasure to live and travel around the world. Yoga found me many years ago when I was living the hectic London life. The healing properties of the practice, both on and off the mat, lead me to India where I lived for seven months having the chance to study different disciplines with great masters and experience the roots of the practice. After these months of profound realizations, the magic of life guided to Mexico, where I am currently based.

    RYT-500, I have also broadened my teachings studying different taoist and tantric techniques such as zhineng qigong level 1, Yin yoga, and Tantra yoga, which have enriched my awareness of the subtle body and allowed me to have a more holistic approach to the practice.

    I throw Yin yoga teacher trainings in Mexico, and workshops internationally, I have had the pleasure to work with different clients and events such as opening the Forbes Forum Powerful Woman 2017 in Mexico and appear regularly on TV to share the teachings.

    My classes are rooted in Hatha yoga, deeply connected to conscious movement and a strong sensitivity for the subtle body and the energetic field. Providing always a safe space to deepen into the journey of the Self and for alchemy to happen.
