Once she returned back to Mexico, she completed the First Series Ashtanga Vinyasa Training (200hr). Always a student, Itzel continues practicing regularly with her teachers both Primary and Vinyasa in Playa del Carmen, and has attended to several Master classes and workshops with inspiring teachers.
Encouraging her students to approach their practice with laughter, self study and awareness, with a foundation on Patanjali’s Eight Fold Path, the Eight limbs of Yoga.
Itzel, believes that yoga goes beyond body and mind, it´s a way of connecting with the planet and your own spiritual path.
“When you commit to a regular practice, your body changes, feeling stronger, more balanced and flexible, but it also impacts your spirit in such a positive way that your whole life begins to shine. My practice has changed over time and I think teaching is like a mirror, showing you to become a better person and ideas about what you give, not only to your students but also to yourself. It’s a way to stay strong with your feet on the ground and your head up in the stars.”

Every action is a prayer, every posture is an offering while keeping the focus in a heart
felt intention and the flow of spirit which is the breath.
Trough the Journey of this never ending process of exploration and growth his practice has found a systematic way that he likes to call The Dao of Yoga: A deep and Conscious
flow to explore and cultivate embodiment and Awareness.
Drawing from different systems and methods of Yoga and Qi Gong; and inspired by The native Wisdom Of the Earth; The Dao of Yoga respects and honours the linage but never gets set into one form; adapting and embracing all of them as one living organism.

“Yoga for me is breathing and stretching while paying attention to the breath and stretch. Yoga makes you present and aware in your body and connects with the feelings and emotions coming up during practice.
Yoga prompts the good in people and valuable connections may arise with the inside and outside.”
