Devaya Yoga ™ (and the Alternative Arts Centre) mission is to Create Peace on Earth with the scientific practices of yoga. Yoga is the science of self-realization and Devaya Yoga ™ methodology naturally brings the practitioner into witness consciousness, activating their natural healing capacities/kundalini, creating a sense of sovereignty or self-empowerment. If we feel good about ourselves, we are at peace, thus we create peace on Earth, person by person, breath by breath. Devaya Yoga ™ is perfect for all ages and body types (every-body), with the emphasis on alignment form the iin-side-out. Our focus is on self-love (ahimsa) and self-acceptance for we are already divine Beings.
The Yoga of Color and Sound is an experiential learning environment. We are a registered yoga school with the Yoga Alliance, USA.
Everything we offer, from teacher trainings, advanced teacher trainings, workshops, retreats and extra credit hours (YACEP) are transformational in nature. Our techniques are mediums for people to simply love who they are, perfect divine Beings, having an earthly experience. Patanjali´s Sutras, the Yamas and Nyamas outlined in the fist two sutras are the foundation of our teachings. People are transformed with conscious breathing and self-acceptance.
We offer 200-hour yoga teacher trainings as well as 100-hour advanced teacher training Polarity Balancing Massage.
In 1988, I was in the Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica and someone invited me to meditate. I was petrified!! What does that entail? The person explained to me that it was simply following my breath. Well, that did not sound too scary, so I sat with him and breathed. After 2 breaths, I had a vision of myself with my fingers in the air and cabins all around. Each morning, upon awakening I would stretch out (I used to play soccer and run so it was part of my morning ritual). I told my friend of this vision and he said to me, ¨You must teach yoga! ¨very emphatically. Yoga? What is that?
Upon returning the USA, yoga was everywhere at the University which I attended. I took a Kundalini class and the gong meditation brought me deep into my core. I loved it! But kundalini was not for me. A few years later I found Kripalu yoga and we resonated! Since 1991 I am a certified Kripalu Yoga Instructor and in 2008, I became a 500 RYT with the Nosara Yoga Institute, Costa Rica, that was a sister school to Kripalu. At the Nosara Yoga Institute, I taught a class as part of the training and Don Stapleton (the then co-director) recommended I register mark the yoga I taught. Devaya Yoga ™ is the only yoga that incorporates chronotherapy or the use of colors in the practice of pranayama.
I am passionate about yoga! It is the science of self-realization and in these times of great change and uncertainty, all we have is ourselves. Our emphasis is the breath awareness, every breath is linked to movement and we anchor our minds in different anatomical references to simply be here now. I was suicidal and did not even know it! After studying Kripalu yoga, I continued my studies, for I wanted to feel and be an integral part of the world as I felt those around me were. Thus, Devaya Yoga ™ was born. We link breath with movement with a rigorous alignment to anatomical parts, from the in-side-out, creating an instant alignment of body-mind and spirit. Each of us is already perfect, Devaya Yoga ™ reminds us of this fact: we are light-beings having an earthly experience.
Besides Devaya Yoga ™ , I also offer transformation bodywork (deep tissue massage, cranio-sacral therapy, polarity balancing therapy, lymphatic drainage and pranassage. I am a Reiki Master and believe we are all living mediums of light and love.
I am an intuitive astrologer and use astrology as a tool for my Nutritional healing consultations. I also am well-renown for my spot-on Tarot readings. I am channel of loving healing light due to my yogic lifestyle.
My life is an enquiry of how to realize our true potential and help others discover their true potential, we are multi-dimensional beings having a 3-dimensional experience. Love heals all!
I am constantly studying or enquiring about yoga: anatomy, philosophy, sequencing, etc., yoga is a living, breathing science, just as we are living and breathing Beings. The breath is the most potent tool I have discovered, and conscious breathing is cost-free. We breath automatically (autonomic nervous system), when we bring conscious awareness to the breath (witness consciousness), we realize our true potential.
