OTHER ALCHEMICAL FACTS:
While in the corporate world, I worked for both Inc 500 and Fortune 500 companies as Director of Human Resources, specializing in Training & Development. This parlayed well into creating a Yoga Teacher Training program, workshops, life-coaching and teaching yoga full-time. I bring inspiration, enthusiasm and playfulness into each class through creative, flowing sequencing and a delightful combination of yoga philosophy and healthy physical alignment. Students often tell me I use the most inspiring music, as they are treated to a fresh, unique playlist of motivating music every class!
I would describe myself as a super gentle, sensitive Cancer with a Pitta/Vata nature. My favorite healing stones are Tigers Eye and Citrine and the Panther is my Totem. This naturally leads me to help others navigate the unknown and face their own fears. When not teaching or practicing yoga, I enjoy watching funny action movies, moving to cool grooves or cooking for loved ones. I like hanging out, soaking in the sun, planning new adventures and sipping a cold Corona with my friends. Nature and the relationship of human spirit are my greatest teachers!
My ears have been pierced since I was 2 days old. It’s tradition in Ecuador where I was born and it was a good thing too because my hair grew slow. Also I have no tattoes. I love them, just can’t commit to any one so I keep waiting.
I am a Shaman, a Healer.
I write 150 published articles per year for mindbodygreen, my yoga online, yogi times, elephant journal, do you yoga, daily cup of yoga, yoganonymous, the cultureist, and more! I also have a 10 year history of writing publicly on my own website for Loving Your Day. I have 4 books in the works.
My BlipTV Channel is Loving Your Day where I post all my yoga philosophy videos. Quick hits of alchemical inspiration under 5 minutes.
How long have I been teaching? Over 11,000 hours of teaching for more than 15 years. Longer if you begin when I picked up my first yoga book at age 10 and started doing poses.
I will be on haitus from teaching public yoga classes from August 9th - October 9th.
