Hi, I am Paula.
A dreamer, world explorer,
certified psychologist, yoga teacher and outdoor educator.
My journey on health and well being started more than ten years ago.
After years of studies and internships in Spain, Norway and Ireland, I graduated in Psychology by the Autonomous University of Madrid in 2016, with a focus on human learning psychology and human-nature relationships. Before and during my whole studies I have always been interested in how we learn and behave, and how our choices and surroundings affect our well-being. However, it was not until the end of my studies that I found yoga to be my way to help improve people's lifes.
I discovered yoga when I was 18 and I fell in love with the experience. After years of self practice and having experience what yoga can do for people's health, I found my path to help others live a healthier, happier life.
In 2016 I took the next step on my personal and professional career and became a 200h certified yoga instructor by Yoga Alliance at Yoga Formacion Institute in Madrid, Spain. Since, I have dedicated myself to deepen personally and professionally in the understanding of the asana practice, human anatomy, philosophy, meditation and pranayama techniques. Since I graduated I have been travelling abroad, deepening my study of the human-nature relationship and holding short yoga courses .Today I count around 5 years of yoga teaching experience and more than 500h of internationally certified yogateacher education. Meanwhile I am still navigating my own personal yoga practice learning and studying from great professionals.
In 2017 I moved to Sweden to complete my studies on Outdoor Education and I found my home in the wild forest lands of Scandinavia. Nowadays, Yoga is more than a regular practice, my life philosophy. The integration of my studies in yoga, psychology and nature have been a major transformation in the way I understand the world and over the last 12 years it has impregnated my lifestyle and profession.
To me, this life is an organic journey. A deepening into consciousness and self development. This is a journey into our body, mind and soul towards a deeper connection to the world surrounding us. I believe in adapting the practice to everyone’s unique condition, physically and emotionally. I value each and every person who joins my courses and I look forward to helping you achieve your wellness goals.
I am a curious soul, a devoted yogi and nature lover and I am here with the sole intention to inspire and guide you. Through your body, mind and soul into a life in harmony with the whole. I am trained in and work with different styles of yoga and I like to combine my different teachings to offer a nourishing experience and I try to always approach and adapt it to everyone’s unique condition, physically and emotionally.
