Yoga-Doula
The Yoga-Doula is a non-medical mother´s companion.
She offers presence, information and supports to mother and partner / family using yoga practical Ayurveda and others skills from several traditions (like ancient medicine from traditional midwifes from Mexico and south America) for maternity journey.
Traditionally the Yoga Doula may serve as conscious pregnancy yoga teacher, an empowering Birth Companion, and as a postpartum helper to care and "Mother the Mother" during the first 6 weeks after birth. For all these stages of becoming a mother and father, the Yoga Doula will apply Yoga, Massage, Nutrition and Humanology tools to facilitate and support the steps into maternity and parenthood.
After the postnatal period, the Yoga Doula will offer postnatal mama & baby yoga class, massage and support the transition from motherhood back to women and couple life.


Why should you receive a Yoga Doula support?

  • Because many women today are socially isolated, sometimes lacking feminine transmission may feel disconnected from their body/mind and spirit needs as woman and ignore their innate mother wisdom.
  • Because the hyper medicalization of most birthing process makes women resign to their true needs during birth, and react with fear or passivity during birth process, the Yoga Doula may inspire her to reconnect to her power.
  • Because the Yoga Doula can contribute for a better physical, emotional and conscious preparation of the mother and her partner, and optimize their experience of the precious transformation of pregnancy, birth intensity and the deep change of life when baby arrive.
  • Because the Yoga Doula can make a significant life amelioration of new mother life and baby, if the Yoga Doula nurture her after birth for some weeks.


The Yoga Doula informs and inspires the mother-to-be, helping to awaken mother´s intuitive power, make good choices for herself and tap into her inner power and wisdom.

Bringing a child into the world is a major and sacred journey for parents-to-be. Supporting them trough the process is a blessing for family and for society.
Prenatal Yoga Classes
During pregnancy, your body goes through many changes, which creates stress on you mentally, emotionally and physically. A way to maintain a healthy mind and body is prenatal yoga because it focuses on poses for pregnant women, in order to increase strength and flexibility. These classes are also a great preparation for the birth. We will focus on breathing and meditation techniques that will allow you to be better prepared for your labor.
Suitable for women new to yoga and also for more experienced practitioners looking for an inspiring approach to some of less-taught aspects of pregnancy yoga.
As a yoga-doula I also love to share some tips about better nutrition and physical habits, and also advises for emotional and mental health.
If you are pregnant at any stage or just would like to become pregnant soon, please come to try. The first class is free!
Enjoy this time together to breathe, connect with your baby and stretch and strengthen mindfully preparing for birth.
Looking forward to meet you (and your baby).

The classes are in English, Spanish or Portuguese.

Massages for Women
My passion for massage began in 2004 with my first massage course: Dynamic Reiki. In 2005 I made an education in Ayurvedic massage. Since then I have not stopped my training: Hot Stones, Shiatsu, Thai, Tibetan and Tantric.
To complement my knowledge I still studied for 3 years Traditional Chinese Medicine, I took some courses in Ayurvedic and Tibetan Medicine. I also studied aromatherapy and since then I produce my own oils with essential oils and plants. Herbs and flowers are important allies in my massages and treatments. I plant, water, collect, dry and then I make oils, creams and other plant medicine.
  
Yoga (Hatha, Flow, Shakti, Tao & Kundalini)
I met Yoga at age 16 when I discovered a huge double scoliosis. According to the doctors the scoliosis was so serious that it could have blocked me of having a normal life. Yoga has just not relieved me of many aches and has greatly improved my condition, but also it has been a lifelong passion!
I graduated as biologist and worked as scientific researcher for 7 years. But in 2007, I give up of my job at the university to dedicate myself exclusively to Yoga and Meditation.
I started my main Hatha Yoga trainings in the Yoga Integral School in 2005. I became Yoga Teacher and, later, Yoga Master specialised in Yoga Therapy and Vinyasa Yoga. In 2007 I was certified as Tibetan Yoga Teacher and in 2011 I became Mindfulness Meditation Teacher.
Recently I have been deepening my Yoga studies with Ancient Tao, Shakti, Kundalini and Yin Yoga.
  
Dakini Wisdom
Buddhism is my basic philosophy and since 1995 I began to deepen my practice by taking courses, retreats, initiations. In 2016 after Vajravahari's empowerment I felt a huge calling to the sacred feminine in the Buddhist tradition.
I decided in 2018 to become a student of the Magyu Tradition - the mother lineage of Tibetan Buddhism.
As personal sadhanas, I regularly practice Green Tara, Chöd, Prajnaparamita, and Mandala of 5 Dakinis. I love to integrate some of the teachings / meditations in my Yoga Classes, Workshops or Retreats.
  
Yoga-Doula
After completing my training as a Yoga Teacher in 2009, I took a Yoga Specialization for Pregnancy at the Integral Yoga School.
But 10 years later I decided to deepen my knowledge in a complete Yoga-Doula training. In this course I was trained in Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga; Mami & Baby Yoga; Birth Yoga. As a Yoga-Doula I can support pregnant women and mothers with Yoga, Nutrition, Massage & Ayurvedic Treatments, Emotional / Psychological Counseling.
  
Fertility & Cycles
For many years I studied and practiced sacred female sexuality. As I began to delve into the topic of sexual healing in women, an interest in female fertility and cycles also emerged. Both themes intertwine, relate to each other. I received practices from different traditions for fertility, tuned to the lunar cycle and adapted to different phases of the woman. I studied natural and ayurvedic treatments for menstrual problems, fertility and menopause. And I deepened the physiology and psychology of fertility.
  
Women Sacred Sexuality
From an early age I felt a fascination about this subject which led me to the Indian and Buddhist Tantra.
When I felt I needed a more feminine approach I had the privilege of finding Feminine Sexual Vitality practices from the Ancient Tao. I learned Yoni Yoga with several international teachers and deepened my knowledge in Sexual Alchemy trough practices of Kundalini Yoga and Shakti Yoga.
  
Kundalini Dance
Kundalini Dance™ is an ecstatic embodiment practice for women and men of all ages, experience and fitness levels. It has been taught worldwide since 1992 by Leolah Antara. The passion for dance and emotional alchemy led me, in 2018, to Bali to be certified in Kundalini Dance, a powerful art of Emotional Alchemy. Trough simple movement and breath keys and intuitive dancing Kundalini Dance invites you for a higher emotional transformation. The chakras are our map and the kundalini energy the fire for inner alchemy.

  
Mayan Astrology
All the cosmovision, as well the Mayan Astrology I have learned with the "sister" Sónia Pereira from Nimaja - Casa Cultural Pré-Hispânica. I was certified as Mayan Astrology by Nimaja in June 2017. Sónia Pereira learn this ancestral wisdom directly from abuelos sages in Guatemala and Mexico, where she lives in the present moment. The Mayan sages asked her to start teaching this wisdom to the world because unfortunately much what comes to the west is not the original Mayan wisdom. I am in love with all this wisdom, a precious compass which guides us into all life.
