Hi, I’m Mercedes. Thank you for visiting my website! I am a full time international Healing Arts teacher. My passion is to help others heal through yoga, reiki, AcroYoga, Thai yoga, meditation and educational wellness workshops. My own journey with yoga inspired me to deepen my practice and to then share my passion for this practice with others on their journey. As a teacher, I encourage students to turn inward during their practice to experience self inquiry, getting comfortable outside of their comfort zone, and to be an observer of their bodies and minds. I create classes with playful sequencing and music, and approach the class with a sense of authenticity. I aim to cater to the physical needs of the students while making sure to deliver a practice that intends to unify the mind, body, and soul in a safe and supportive environment.
I first found yoga years ago, during a college class. I didn’t feel a connection to the teacher or the style. Seven years ago I decided to try it again. This time the experience was different. I committed to trying 30 days at a studio. From there, I fell in love with the practice and began taking yoga classes daily. At first, the practice was more physical for me, but soon after, I began recognizing the benefits of a regular practice connecting mind, body, and soul and continued to practice yoga daily. Later that same year, I found AcroYoga at a workshop that a traveling guest teacher offered. This became my passion. After finding this practice and feeling the joy it brought to me, I began to search for workshops, retreats, and trainings in other cities and countries in order to be able to continue learning. Now, I work full-time teaching and facilitating healing and couldn’t be happier to do what I love.
My certifications include: 220 hr Yoga Teacher Training certification in Nicaragua in 2013, AcroYoga certification at the Latino Teacher Training in Mexico in 2015, and 500 hr level Advanced Teacher Training certification in Gautemala in 2016. I have been a teacher for 15 years, 6 years in yoga and I am Yoga Alliance certified. I am a bilingual instructor, teaching in English and Spanish. In addition to yoga, I am trained in, and practice, Thai massage and am certified in level 3 Reiki. I currently live in North Carolina and would love to share this practice with you! In addition to regular and private classes locally, I travel teach as well leading workshops and retreats around the world. I love to travel and have practiced and taught yoga in amazing places and spaces. I am interested in, and have studied and practiced, a variety of styles of yoga including Hatha, Vinyasa, Karma Yoga, Yin, Restorative, and AcroYoga . I am passionate about continuing my yoga education both personally and professionally.
