Level II Tantrika
I offer you peace, love, connection and liberation.
Spiritual from birth I would escape to the nearby woods to sit in silence and solitude as a young child in Massachusetts. I would listen to the rocks and the trees and the river. I had not yet heard of meditation but it brought me peace.
In 2001, I started experimenting with yoga off and on as a means of relieving back pain from scoliosis. I didn't realize at the time that as a result of suffering a variety of trauma, I had acquired a bad habit of disassociating or detaching from life. Years later, it was yoga that brought me back into my body, and with a vibrancy for life.
AIthough I had come to yoga for a straightforward and mundane reason, it slowly began to reach me on a spiritual level and irrevocably transformed my life. It taught me joy. That’s why I feel called to teach.
My entrance to the path was through the body.
As I walked the path, the appropriate shamans and teachers appeared before me at the appropriate times. I traveled the world and settled mostly in Barcelona for those 11 years abroad. It was there in 2008 that I began a dedicated daily practice. Tiago Rocha was the first teacher to push my limits and until then I never would have thought I could be strong. He is Brazilian with a circus background and I trained with him for 2.5 hours every day for 2 years.
I was inspired to do my first 50-hour training in Rocket
yoga with David Kyle and I won a photo contest that helped me to afford it. I later did a 200h training with him in Progressive Ashtanga.
I won a guessing game on Instagram that awarded me a 3-day intensive with Meghan Currie in Lisbon, Portugal.
I went on a solo journey to the home countries of my ancestors to acknowledge and heal the cycles of suffering in my family lines. Back in Barcelona, I studied Ashtanga with Eva Oller who had lived in India with Pathabi Jois(the father of Ashtanga) for 10 years. I continued to study Ashtanga with Aleix Ríos who is commonly regarded as the best in Barcelona due to his progressive approach. He blends the wisdom of Iyengar through Donna Holleman with his Ashtanga background through the lineage of Rolf and Marci Naujokat in Goa, India.
Aleix selected myself along with another girl to be his assistant. During these two years I lived the ascetic life, waking up at 4:30am to do my meditation and physical practice before working alongside Aleix teaching and adjusting in a mysore-style setting from 6:30-11am. Between this hands-on experience and the semi-weekly meetings that covered technique as well as more philosophical and spiritual topics, I accumulated upwards of 5,000 hours of learning.
During the same time, I began experimenting more with shamanism and participated in Ayahuasca ceremonies as well as many sweat lodges. I joined a shamanic singing circle where I learned another ancient way of navigating the path between earth and sky.
I have since discovered that the ascetic style is not what’s best for me because denial and discipline come too easily and by choosing instead what is lovingly challenging I am able to move toward the balance I continually seek. By relinquishing control, I open myself to an infinitude of possibilities I couldn’t have otherwise imagined.
I have done workshops with Ana Forrest and Jose Calarco and am very inspired by their shamanic approach to yoga and their nurturing but difficult practices.
Most recently, I’ve studied under Dharma Mittra in New York City who is an internationally recognized 81 year-old living master.
I believe that spirituality is an individual path of which no two look the same. I seek ways to blend the teachings of all my teachers with the needs of the student and the wisdom of my experience in a way that is joyful, accepting, and full of love.

Victoria is such a gift to know. I met with her twice during this crazy time and she was such a source of bright and supportive energy. She is a beautiful spirit and a real healer, with great wisdom, kindness and strength that she shares so warmly it is healing down to the soul. Her massage technique is excellent and deeply restorative. Holding space with her is really powerful and something I look forward to returning to some day soon.

So much YES right here! This woman is a strong Yogini with excellent massage pressure. I received a purely therapeutic spa massage from her tonight and she nailed it. I was fully tranced out. My favourite moves were the neck and shoulders, yet all of it, including abdominal belly massage, was superb. -Queen Love
