I was introduced to yoga in 2010, during my postdoctoral training in neurobiology, as a way to reduce stress. I was unfamiliar with the practice. I still remember the intimidating poses, the shaking of my body, and the tremendous fear of falling during what is seemed to be a very long class. I soon became amazed by the way my Teacher was able to create consistently a unique experience, and this is the reason why I continued exploring the practice. I teach yoga to offer an opportunity to clear the mind from distractions and find new space to work on those qualities that make us unique. Yoga for me is the constant practice to find balance in life. As a teacher, I am committed to this learning process that requires time, patience, discipline, and devotion. I am extremely grateful to Xenia Guido, my Teacher and Mentor from the very first day.
