About Marcela

I am a Senior Yoga teacher certified by the Yoga Alliance Professionals UK, specialised in experiential anatomy and physiology of movement, a QiGong Instructor and 15 years of experience teaching Pilates.

I am very explorative and curious by nature, so my embodied practices have a blend of what I have been learning along the way. All of my classes are open for total beginners and for advance inquire practitioners.

My Teachings are deeply rooted in a somatic sense of the Self. Somatic is a Greek word which means “Pertaining to the body, experienced and regulated from within” Thomas Hanna was the first person who coined this term. On his own words Somatics is the field which studies the soma: namely the body as perceived form within by first-person. Hereby Somatics is the study o self from the perspective of one’s life experience, encompassing body, mind and spirit.

My style of teaching is immersive in this field of observing the body as a process to find health, strength and resiliency.

My classes might be challenging as I will encourage the participant to take self responsibility in the course of the experience. Once the psyche enters the field of self perception by feeling the movement and allowing the space of inquiry, a sense of ownership of the body and mind will arise. In other words you will know what are you doing with the technic you are undertaking and you will learn to listen to your own teacher: the body

I will guide you through the process to find the present moment where mind-body-spirit are in communion. The physiological respond is delicious. From ancient indian practices this is called sidis: powers form the Sadus, indian masters who find themselves by self-observation.
