Daniela Luz

Mindfulness and Yoga Instructor

Her willingness to share is born out of a process of emotional healing and self-love, with her main purpose being to empower people  “inside and out”  from the rug, in search for your physical, mental and emotional balance . 

Experiencing extreme exhaustion and constant stress due to a demanding professional path (management of a center with children with special educational needs from families at risk), he found in the practice of yoga and meditation his "oasis". Through immersion and personal development studies,  for several years in Buddhist monasteries, ashrams, schools (Australia, Thailand, Laos, Indonesia and India), acquired a new perspective of embracing life and challenges,  com  more focus and clarity. Daniela realized that by taking better care of herself, she could serve others on a much deeper level. By experiencing this body-mind-heart-spirit reconnection, he felt that this message had to be shared with the world.
