At 13 I started high school and the requirements for studies began to be very strong. I began to have trouble concentrating, back problems, weight gain…
After two years, my back discomforts turned into great pain and taking the advice of an orthopedic surgeon, at age 15 I started yoga classes.
At first yoga for me was like an “obligation” but over time, I noticed a significant improvement in my body, not realizing that the positions were becoming more bearable, turning out in a very natural, almost effortless. In the evenings, i rested deeply and in the morning I woke up without discomfort in my back, with loads of energy and my fatigue was gone. It seemed that a year on everything flowed differently. Still, it continued to believe that the practice was somewhat boring.
“At age 15 I started yoga classes”
When I started my studies of primary education, I left yoyga class and the result was very negative. I started with backaches again, insomnia, headaches, moodiness, I had trouble focusing and studying… My body demanded my attention again, and being consciousabout it, I realized that the discipline provided me with something beyond considerable physical well-being.
I started practicing some exercises at home, I started researching and found that there were different styles, that the benefits were many and that the awareness of these was very important. It was here that I began to discover a whole philosophy … a new world. From here everything was motivation, curiosity and desire to practice.
I decided to go on an Erasmus Scholarship to Sweden where I discovered all kinds of innovative methodologies, and where I had the opportunity to take part in some of the most well-structured educational systems.
On the way back, I started university practices at a school in Mallorca, entering the educational system, I got a big disappointment, everything we had studied on about dynamic, innovative teaching seemed light years away from the school where I was doing practices.
“India was undoubtedly the best experience of my life”
I found the unexpected reality: lots of children diagnosed with ADHD, insomnia, respiratory problems, asthma, obesity, allergies, severe concentration problems, low self-esteem …
During the final year, I thought of making my final project about yoga for children. Although I wanted to learn more, yoga encompassed many levels and was such a broad concept that I needed to study-it deeply.
Where could I study this discipline to train as a teacher?
My search led me to Rishiskesh, world capital of Yoga. India was undoubtedly the best experience of my life. That’s where yoga became the passion of my life. From here on I travel whenever I can to attend workshops, participate in events, retreats, conferences … I have a passion about learning, travelling and especially being able to share it with others.
