Bliss Hot Yoga
I love teaching and sharing yoga with everyone! I am a mother, wife, and teacher. I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, but my heritage is 100% Guatemalan. Both of my parents and grandparents were born and raised in Guatemala. My parents immigrated to the United States in their mid 20’s looking for new opportunities. They taught me to be grateful for everything I have, to work hard in life, set goals, and always give back to others.
I took my first yoga class in 2012 and fell in love with the practice. I began the journey to blend my passion for yoga and teaching in 2016.
Seeking the truest essence of what it means to be a Yogi. Nature Loving, I believe in the power of "TruthinTrees" and Returning to the Roots of what it means to be in Harmony with Nature. Starting my Yogic Journey through Meditation, My Asana Practice has helped me bring Awareness to the challenge of what it means to be in Full Union with the Divine. Seeking Spiritual Liberation he remains Always a Student at Heart and has faith This practice is not just determined by what you do on the mat but off of it as well. "So continue to Practice; Life is A Journey Mind, Body, Spirit. Breath in & Breathe Out." #SatNam #Namaste

I learned about yoga as a child and it has remained a constant throughout my life. In 2014 I suffered a concussion and for months side effects lingered. I dedicated myself to yoga and meditation and over the course of a year I healed my brain. While I have maintained a personal practice for a lot of my life, I have been teaching yoga for just two years. I began teaching children's classes and that is my special love in the yoga world. I have been teaching adult classes for a year. I am very much enjoying sharing the practice and learning as much as I can.
I became Certified for Group Exercise and Personal Training while training units of the U.S. Marine Corps in the year 2000, where I conducted morning Physical Training (PT) to units of ten people to complete Divisions of three thousand people.
In 2003 I joined the U.S. Army and became involved in creating fitness programs, instructing PT, calling cadence during runs, and helped develop and instruct prenatal and postpartum pregnancy programs. I have experience in the Fitness Industry teaching in many locations across the United States where I have specialized in Kickboxing, Abdominal Sculpting, Boot Camp, Circuit Training, Cycle, and most recently Buti Yoga, and its affiliate classes.
Buti Yoga is my favorite format because of the core strength involved, dynamic asana movements, tribal dance, and the empowering tribe it builds among the participants of the class.
Bliss Hot Yoga is the studio of the people.
