Made it to Portugal, teaching yoga for surfers

My footprints has stopped in the Himalayas to move all the way to Portugal. My Family’s land – My Father’s roots.

It is funny how much things are going your way, when you live according to your purpose and also when you carry JOY within. Nothing can remove the best of you when you own it !! This let you achieve what you seek and you can walk in the journey in the arms of PEACE.

I thought of working to Portugal this summer and while in India, I get a call from a surf/yoga retreat and here I am.

The combination of teaching Yoga for surfers is turning my days more joyful. I love this surfing environment and go myself almost everyday. The Atlantic Ocean is cold but we wear wetsuit and move the body a lot. But I never thought of being in this new environment in all levels.

In a way, I decided to accept what life gives me and from that place of not being disrupted by controlling things the way I think is better for me, I can benefit of any change with stillness.

So, I am sharing my knowledge and optimism with surfers and had to adjust with different ways of teaching Yoga Asanas with them. Finally, that was easy to transit from organizing Yoga Retreats more as a currator in Bali, to give yoga instructions here in Portugal, because I just spent almost the last 7 months under the guidance of my great teachers.

But in the next months, I will focus again on working in organizing travel groups for sure. Sooooo, who is with me for the next destination?

First, you can enjoy some of my pics –

Lives between Europe and exotic places, here is my story: I worked as a fashion Buyer for 10 years in Paris and get the chance to travel a lot during fashion weeks and experienced to live abroad. At 30 I changed my life and relocated in Hong Kong, where in parallel of my work I was studying Yoga and Ayurveda from short trips to Bali. Influenced by my teachers, peers, environment and my travels… I felt unstoppable and this year gap changed my life. First, I attended in Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep Monastery my first Vipassana course – the 21 days of silent meditation in 2013. I did an Ashtanga 200-YTT in India in 2013, I stayed under the guidance of certified Ashtanga teachers of KP Jois as Prem Carlisi, Damien de Bastier, BNS Iyengar till now. Completed an Ayurvedic course with Deepak Chopra, M.D., F.A.C.P in his foundation of Ayurveda and also with Dr Ramesh Kumar from the University of Ayurveda in Mysore – India. Completed a Dietary Course called ‘Food is your best medecine’ with the Dr. Veronica Waks M.D., N.D. which is about planning a food plan who works the best with different type of people. More recently in 2018, she stayed under the guidance of well known Ayurvedic author Janesh Vaidya in his center in Kerala to be trained as a Yoga Therapist and integrating Yoga-Ayurvedic program that she is able to teach now. « My experiences make me understand that the key component for health and wellness is traveling into a healing environment, as it is an extraordinary step into the process of self-discovering and how to transform our life with new habits and then sustain this lifestyle for our own health ».  That’s why I choose to use my yoga retreats to guide others for self-discovery and adopting a spiritual practice into their life “Sadhana” and all tools that has benefited me.
