C-IAYT. E-RTY500, YACEP
The grounds of the Sacred Valley is the perfect setting to thank my grandmothers for having shown me a series of powerful processes that I apply in my daily life. Their teaching are fundamental in my healing path. Most importantly, I am grateful for having taught me to believe in the wisdom of the Mother Earth, the intervention of The Divine and the power of my ancestors that live within me.
After years self-advocacy on self-care, in 2014 I founded the bilingual Integrated School of Mindfulness and Yoga the Holistic Centre Hanaq Prana Studio. Over the last few years I have graduated dozens of qualified teachers. In 2015 I created the teaching method, "Vivir en Plenitud" as a response of the lack of mindfulness educational resources that addressed the very specific characteristics of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder for Latino immigrants in the United States.
Presently, through my writing and community outreach I dedicate my work and time to educate others about the importance of cultural intersectionality in healing spaces.
