- Tarapoto, San Martin, Peru
I am a certified Hatha yoga teacher. I have been practicing for over 20 years. I completed my first teacher training in 2004. Since then, I have studied Iyengar yoga (in India and France) and Anusara yoga (in Thailand, Bali (Indonesia) and Canada). I have taught yoga in Asia, Europe, North America, Central America and now offer retreats in the jungle of Peru.My teaching style is alignment-based whether in gentle yoga, Hatha yoga or yoga flow style classes. I also completed teacher trainings in prenatal yoga, yoga for seniors and yoga for children.While in India, I studied and received my Reiki Master certification, an energy healing technique that focuses on hand imposition to transfer life force energy.
In 2016, I completed a health and wellness coaching training. I am now an eating psychology and Mind-body nutrition coach. A retreat setting is the perfect opportunity to touch on our relationship with food. I enjoy helping others relax around food and heal their relation with food and their body.
In 2011, I started and operated a yoga studio in Bromont, Quebec, Canada for almost two years which I called Studio Maya Yoga. It was a great experience that prepared me for my dream project of opening a yoga retreat center in the tropics. In 2013, my partner and I started welcoming guests at Tambo Ilusion, a beautiful private conservation area in the Amazon jungle where international guests come for our 5 day yoga vacation program which is offered year round.It is with the intention of creating a special place to gather, practice, share and learn about healthy living that I started my yoga project at Tambo Ilusión. Tambo Ilusión offers a rustic yet quaint environment surrounded by natural beauty, a beautiful fresh water lagoon, a spectacular yoga shala, delicious vegetarian food and more! The perfect setting for reconnecting and for a grounding yoga practice.I am pleased to invite yoga teachers to offer their retreats at Tambo Ilusión.In August 2014, Tambo Ilusión was chosen as one of the Top FIve Yoga Centers of Peru by the most prestigious Peruvian newspaper "El Comercio"! Tambo Ilusion Retreat Center has been awarded Trip Advisor's Excellence award 2015 and 2016 for the constant amazing reviews travelors share on their site.
