  • Description


    I have roots in Nicaragua & Peru and grew up in New Jersey where I worked as an Accountant in NYC for over 15 Years. After the death of brother in 1998 I began to change my life and decided to leave the United States and move to Nicaragua to start a new life that began with the lifestyle of meditation & yoga. I'm now currently a 500 E-RYT Yoga & Certified AcroYoga Teacher & Thai Massage Practitioner.

    I have recently returned to Nicaragua after spending the past (3) years in Cusco, Peru. I opened up my Yoga Center in Cusco during that time which was focused on personal healing, the practice of Yoga, Meditation, Plant Medicine & Bodywork. Due to the Pandemic, our work in Cusco has been halted and we are still Rated number one

    At this time, we are in the process of making our current location in Nicaragua a splinter location of the Yoga Center which is located in Cusco, Peru. We want to make this location more sustainable and also looking to begin planting and increasing our garden on the property. We are in the process of finishing up our yoga space and will begin to receive guests for Mini-Retreats, Trainings & Ceremonies at the beginning of 2020.

    As there is a calendar of events ready to go into 2021, we are excited to have someone who is enthusiastic about joining the team and potentially growing together. I would be open to other facilitators who are also interested in Mini-Retreats, Workshops, etc.

    My main project is to create the visibility of the Shamanic Yoga Practices from the Andes. The complimentary project is to create an Intimate Healing Center dedicated to Yoga, AcroYoga, Meditation & Shamanic Practices.

    For this to be accomplished, I need enthusiastic volunteers, which could be you, to share this vision and also work to make our location comparable to our previous work in Peru. We also have some projects at another location which we have not begun building which just has established trees and is set on a 3.5 Acre Land near Granada.

    Open for creativity on all projects in and outside the house.

    Preference for long term as building commUNITY will take some time and dedication.

    Future Tasks:

    1. Karma Yoga Project - Yoga & Meditation for Healthcare Workers

    2. Social Media Marketing

    3. Renovating Additional Bedroom(s)

    4. Re-building of Yoga Platform

    5. Creation of a NEW Garden

    Help around the house will be required to keep it clean, tidy and in order.
