My son is two and he is my JOY! and inspiration. His name is Benicio, which means “the benevolent one.” Becoming a mother awakened my heart to a new sense of responsibility, not only to my beloved Beni, but to each precious child that I encounter.
Meditation and mindfulness has brought healing to my heart and focus to my mind. As a Mexican-American child growing up in Houston, TX, diagnosed with ADHD, I had a lot of negative self-talk. Though I struggled in school, I found a home in expressions of music and art. Today, living life in NYC, my practices of meditation and yoga balance me for explorations in music and design. So it is through heartfelt strength in practice and resiliency found in struggle that I aim to share these tools of mindfulness. My hope is that my son’s generation will find the fullest sense of self-expression and a common ethic of excellence and kindness towards themselves and one another that will build a more just and conscious society for us all.
I believe that the power of community helps us see ourselves reflected in one another, facilitating change. The practice, study and instruction of yoga in community awakens me to a loving kindness that I strive to share with anyone who is curious, seeking or in need.
