I was born on a small island called Vieques just off the southeast coast of Puerto Rico. I arrived in Okinawa in 1996. After the birth of my third child, I studied fashion design for three years at Esteen Fashion Institute here in Okinawa. Soon after, I became involved in modeling and later, belly dancing,I started by joining group yoga lessons at my local gym. I was so impressed with its benefits and changes I saw in my life, that I endeavored to be a certified yoga instructor. Before long, I had completed my training from Shanti Yoga Enrichment Series and Yoga Power Teacher Training, earning a CYT200. Later, I continued to add certifications with Rainbow Kids’ Yoga, Yin Yoga, and High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) Yoga certification.
