Dima

My yoga journey started 10 years ago, when a friend asked me to join her for a hot yoga class while I was living in Canada. I was instantly hooked as I was able to get out of my mind and focus on the challenging asanas I was being guided through. 

As I deepened my practice, I naturally found my breath changing as I went through my regular day activities… It was the small things that made the biggest impact for me. Things like standing still with your weight distributed evenly on the planes of your feet while standing/waiting (tadasana), for example, helped me feel centred and at ease when it was easy to get impatient or restless.

Being aware of my thoughts and the power it had over my reality was transformative. Practicing Yoga has taught me how to be observant, accepting and present, allowing me to get out of the monkey mind and into the physical moment.

I received my yoga training in India, August 2019 along with yoga’s sister science, Ayurveda, and have been supporting my communities with these healing philosophies since!

I have a deep commitment for this practice and I can’t wait to share, learn and practice with you!

Angela

BIO Angela English & Spanish

Angela Viejo practiced more than 10 years before she takes her first Ashtanga yoga teacher trainning in India. Nowadays she is certified in several yoga disciplines: Acroyoga, Rocket, Aeroyoga and Kids-Family Yoga.

Passionate about Thai massage for the teaching of humility, presence and dedication that inspires to those who practice. She regularly visits her teachers in India and Thailand, as an eternal student and researcher.

“Yoga is life. The greatest growth I found when sharing my mat and my practice space with other people, then you see yourself and your tendencies. Acroyoga taught me to trust, to give myself with respect, patience and listening, to breathe with strangers as if they were my brothers, to care for others with my heart, not to judge, to be more equanimous and loving, to be happier for others’ achievements, than for my own.

Yoga shows a way to loose fears and recover the divine strength common to all beings. Yoga is you, aware of the gift of breathing and life, present and in absolute union with all beings “In her classes she cares for every student with joy, encouraging all to achieve their goals.
