Born and raised in Quito, Ecuador, I'm a product of a bilingual household. Always drawn to experience something bigger, ended up in Shanghai, China. It was there that I fell in love with yoga, longing that peaceful environment I had grown up in. Ultimately choosing Denver, CO as my base. My goal is to create a safe place, to inspire my students to listen and connect with their bodies through intention, meditation, pranayama and asana. With a great playlist, of course!
