TIP: We will have yoga mats and props, but we usually recommend that travelers bring their own yoga mat or a travel yoga mat and whatever props they normally use.
YOGA TEACHER | SOL TO SOUL YOGA RETREAT LEADER
Sharing my practice with all of the beautiful people that I meet at the studio has become my favorite thing because I reaffirm my passion and love for this philosophy. Teaching allows me to observe myself, to remember to breathe and let go and relax. I remember to enjoy life and to give all my love with every word I speak. I remember that we all share the beautiful trait of being human and everything is perfect just the way it is. Most of all, I remember that love is the path to transform our lives.
Gloria came to yoga after years in the corporate word left her feeling drained and sick. She studied 200hr Hatha Yoga in India and completed her second 200hr certification in the Aligned Flow Method at Yoga Dicha Studio in Tulum. She blends hatha and alignment with conscious meditation, pranayama and soulful words from the heart.
