Born in Gran Canaria, I was soon interested in hypnosis and states of consciousness. There I learned from local healers, called ”esteleros”, their capacity to align the body and enjoyed their good humor. I did not know then that I would study psychology and specialize as Clinical and Health Psychologist in 2005.
I went to study in Granada, mainland Spain, a Master of Clinical Specialty in the AEPC (Spanish Association of Behavioral Psychology) while attending Anthropology classes at Granada University. There I began to practice Yoga and learn about Tantra at Escuela Vedica with Swami Shankaratilakananda. These teachings seemed to me true knowledge and my whole being resonated with them in peacefull states never before experienced . I studied a form of dynamic and energetic yoga called Vyayam Yoga and Traditional Hatha Yoga. Also participated in seminars about Tantra, numerology, life and death.
These experiences inspired me for a pilgrimage in India and Thailand in 2010 for eight months in Self discovery. Blessed by the Kumbha Mela, the largest concentration of yogis in a festival with ritual bathing in the Holy Ganges. Studied Yoga and Philosophy with Swami Dharmanand at Ved Niketam Ashram in Rishikesh. Aiming full Yoga experinence I traveled learning Ayurveda, Shiatsu, Thai-massage and Healing.
I included dance as an instruments for liberation after deep freedom tantric dance with Swami Akash . This experince of awakening the divinity within through movement touched me deeply. So I participated in workshops of Biodance, Vital Dance, Contact Improvisation, 5 Rhythms, circle and dervish dance to explore and share this medicine in several Dance Therapy workshops.
In 2013 I trained in Ayurvedic Panchakarma detox precess with Dr. Nayana Rao, from Udupi, India. Organizing several retreats and teachings on Ayurveda, abhyangam and shirochampi massage.
Other experiences with wisdom men and women like Don Chabelo, Huichol indian, and specially with Abuela Margarita and Carlos Jesus Castillejos from Toltec tradition, introduced me into native american wisdom and again the One and same source.
In 2014 I did Biogestalt therapy and group dynamics training with the Instituto Biogestalt by Antonio Asin and Maria Zubicaray. Learning bioenergetic character body reading, holotropic breathing and rebirthing therapy, art therapy and other techniques.
My greatest gift is to participate in Shiv Yog kundalini and healing teachings in India, London or South Africa with His Holiness Avdhoot Baba Shivanad Ji since 2011. Recognized by various world governments including India and USA and Universities for his contributions to Integrative Health. Educating medical professionals in the ancient science of Shiv Yog, awakening the dormant healing powers within everybody and revealing the science beyond science that integrates body, mind and soul.
So, walking a beautiful life, when there is a beautiful purpose. I work to inspire people in their path.
