My Movement Story

Updated: Aug 10

Like the most of you, I came into this world learning through the five senses what does “to live” means. As a shy and very quiet Mexican kid, my inner dialogue was full of kinetic curiosity about how to fly from one couch to the other, to reach the top of a tree or do backflips in gymnastics. My inner voice just was present to explain movement, laugh about it or play with it.


From 4 years old until 11 I got hooked Gymnastics
1987 Gymnastics. La Paz Mexico

An important element that enhanced my necessity to move was music; I used to sleep and wake up with it, and dance became a natural follow-on activity. In 1997 I moved to Guadalajara, Mexico to study Communication Sciences. During those four and a half years, I joined the Contemporary Dance Company and that was the first time that I did Pilates as a methodical warm up. I didn’t realize that being a mind and body connector was my true vocation until some years later. And because you never stop learning, here you have the list of relevant experiences since I switched focus to movement education:

I’ve been able to learn from so many diverse personalities and backgrounds using my body as an amazing tool and my spirit towards empathy and playfulness to help others; always looking for adventures but coming back to “my core”, to what centers me. And that's exactly what I want to invite you to do: To find your own way to move through life with awareness and enjoy.
