About the Moderator:
Hatha Yoga 800hr E-YRT (experienced Yoga registered teacher )
“I began my professional journey as a Cultural Anthropologist with a minor in Psychology. I worked with indigenous groups and planned parenthood in Panama City, Panama ( my country of birth ) For 5 years after graduating in 1989.
Life led me to move to Miami in the early 90’s where I came across Tibetan Buddhism. For the next few years I studied and practiced Buddhist philosophy and meditation with Lama Kunga and then with Lama karma Chotso. During those years I discovered Yoga and all my focus then went to studying and practicing Hatha yoga, Bhakti yoga and the 8 limbs of yoga under my teacher Dharma Mittra.
I took my first 200 hour Teacher Training in Vinyasa Yoga in 2013 in Miami and in 2015 I headed to New York to study with Sri Dharma Mittra, its founder, where I earned first my 500 hour teacher training certification and then my 800 hour teacher certification in 2017. I have been teaching Yoga and meditation for 6 years now.
I am blessed to have had the opportunity to learn from legendary teachers such as Krishna Das ( Bhakti Yoga ), Amy Ipolliti ( Anusara Yoga ) and from the teacher of teachers, Sri Dharma Mittra himself. I will be forever grateful for the wisdom they have shared with me.
As a teacher I am devoted to helping my students find the most suitable yoga experience for their particular body, level of experience and physical condition, so that they may too enjoy the deeper benefits of the practice of yoga in their daily life.”
