This is my story…
¨I´m a latin woman, passionate with life and Movement. I´ m a mum with 2 young women Ona and Uma. The journey of moving through pregnancy and changing countries has empowered my life with strength, compassion and infinite love. Since then my life was never the same. I grew up in Argentina, lived half of my life in Barcelona, and now I´m based in Australia. I loved yoga even before I began practicing it. After having my second baby i went to attend to a Yoga class and i did have a injury in my scrum iliac joint….this event makes me embarked in a deep journey to understand why did that happen? why i was experienced that pain? What was that didn’t knew about me? And i have to SLOW DOWN and listening closely to myself….Learning about myself, from the insight. It was the perfect timing for me to start the Feldenkrais Training just 2 weeks after my injury. .. With Feldenkrais i did go to heal myself , i recovered my self image, my dignity, my quality of life, my INSTINCT , and i am still constantly learning about my habits of movement, my habits of thinking, sensing and feeling. Feldenkrais opened a path to access to myself with honest freedom, since then Life is shining….!
