Iwas born and raised in New Hampshire. Skateboarding was my passion. I worked as a screen printer as I became a painter. Later on I moved to New York and worked on a high scale catering Hall while I became a bass player and continued to paint. I worked in the same catering hall for 18 years. An emotionally and physically demanding job, as well as an unhealthy lifestyle, pushed my health to the brink of collapse. My then coworker now wife, had just finished her ayurvedic studies and helped me to recover. Later she pushed me to Yoga. I didn't want to go but I found in it a challenge I had been missing. My life changed dramatically after that and now we are living in Colombia sharing our experience and our Yoga practice.
Lo que me motiva es evolucionar como persona.
La expansión a través del Yoga ha cambiado mi vida. Es mi deseo compartir lo aprendido y seguir aprendiendo.
Egresada de Incolballet. Tuve la oportunidad de entrenarme en ballet clásico en Moscu. Luego entré al mundo de la danza moderna estudiando en Merce Cunningham y Trisha Brown en Nueva York. Mi busqueda por un movimiento mas liberador me llevo al Contact Improv y eventualmente a la improvisación pura. Yo buscaba saber pintar el espacio con mi cuerpo. En esta busqueda tambien descubrí la Educación Somática, la técnica de Moshe Feldenkrais y de F. Mathias Alexander. Y el Yoga.
De ahí surgió un interés en la nutrición ayurvédica, el vedanta y Yoga aérea. He tenido la fortuna de ser guiada en el camino. Para moldear y entender el cuerpo, enfocar al mente y liberar el espiritu. Nací y crecí en Cali, Colombia
I was able to become a dancer. I trained as a classical ballet dancer in The Bolshoi Ballet school of choreography. Then I moved into the world of modern dance, studying with Merce Cunningham and Trisha Brown in NYC. My search for a more liberating kind of movement lead me to discovere Somatic Education, and the techniques of Moshe Feldenkrais and the Alexander Technique, And Yoga.
From there I developed an interest in Ayurvedic Nutrition, Vedanta and Aerial Yoga. I feel fortunate to have been guided inmy path. To learn to mold and understand the body, focus the mind and liberate the spirit. I was born and raised in Cali, Colombia.
