ABOUT ME

Yoga has been a part of my life for over eight years and my practice has helped me grow in many ways, mentally, physically and the way I live life. Now I want to help you deepen your practice and share my expertise of running a successful yoga studio.

My bio

Let me tell you about me before Yoga. My main studies were on accountancy. I used to work in a bank and some other companies doing all the accountant stuff. While working as an accountant for a company at the shipyard in Barcelona and being surrounded by yachts and young people travelling and working on them, I realized how boring my life was, I wasn’t enjoying it as I thought. It took me a month to get a license to work at sea and some courses, and I quit my job and decided to join a Private Yacht to work and travel the world at the same time, sounds crazy right? Well, I got a job in a yacht four days after and left the country some weeks later.

I ended up spending four years traveling and working around the world. Those years sailing, living in different countries and working as a stewardess made me grow as a person, learning new things every single day, meeting new people and new challenges.

During that time onboard but at the same time in different cities, is when I discovered Yoga. The main sport I used to practice was CrossFit (I love strength training!), and someone recommended me Yoga to combine it with and stretch, so basically, I started Yoga as a physical practice to feel less stiff and be more flexible as it wasn’t my thing!

And guess what? I got hooked up with Yoga, every class was a challenge for me, every mantra and mindful words that the teacher was saying in class got me interested to learn beyond the physical practice.

Every four months working on board, I would have two months of holidays. I used to travel at that time, so I did go to India and get my first teacher training. I completed my 500 hours Ashtanga Vinyasa training with Kranti Yoga in India. After my Yoga studies, I had many things going through my head, something changed in me, and I decided that my time travelling on a Yacht was over, it was time for me to move on and go back to my lovely Barcelona.

I continued later on my studies in Barcelona with 200 hours Aerial Yoga, 50h Rocket Yoga, 35h Mindfulness and other courses related to body and mind work. I also started sharing my Yoga practices and teaching at some Hotels and Gyms, and of course, giving some classes to my friends for free to put my teaching practice on! But very early I realized how many crazy amount of classes you need to teach to live fully from Yoga, so I decided that I was going to open my own place and share all my wisdom and knowledge the way I wanted. One year after, April 2017, I opened my own yoga studio in Barcelona called YOGA CONNECTIONS, and here I am, living the life I truly enjoy.

I won’t say that everything has been easy, it has been a roller coaster of emotions, starting your own business isn’t easy if you don’t know how to start, I wish that at that moment I could have had someone to guide me so I could have grown faster and not lose as much money as I did on my first year.

What I do now

And this is why I am here right now, sharing this page with you to help you build your business, to help you scale it if you already have it or maybe even to help you through your Yoga journey as a student or practitioner giving you all my knowledge and wisdom.

I will always be a student of the practice. I am continually learning from my students and always looking forward to expanding my knowledge more and more. I am deeply grateful for the loving wisdom my teachers have shared with me.

In my classes, I love to combine creative sequencing, a spirit of playfulness, some mindful words and a dose of inspiration to help you deepen your practice. I also love to add strength programs to improve your Yoga practice and protect your body from injuries.

I seek to help others thrive in life by nurturing body, mind and soul with Yoga, meditation and movement and my hope is that you step off your comfort zone, find your path through Yoga and enjoy the simple fact of being alive.
