Hola! I’m Lorena Quintero, a proud Mexicana living in Vancouver, B.C.
I’m a student & teacher of Yoga, Shamanism, and Ceremony facilitator.
Yoga showed up in my life in 2008 & it quickly became a huge part of my life. With every class I took, I wanted to learn more about its philosophy & origins; I was fascinated by the subtleties of the practice & the connection between myself & nature that I never understood before. When I became aware of the effects it was having in my life, body, mind, spirit, relationships, & way of viewing the world, I knew I wanted to share what I was learning every day.
I’ve been practicing & sharing for 12 years, and in many ways, I still feel like this is only the beginning. Diving deep into Yogic teachings & Shamanic traditions has become my compass. My teachers, colleagues, friends & ancient wisdom influence the way I choose to participate in the world. Every aspect of the practice continues to surprise & amaze me & I keep learning tools that are beneficial & practical for everyday life. This path has taken me to amazing places around the world, meeting incredible, beautiful humans & having unique, wonderful experiences that have molded the person I am today.
Today, my practice is my anchor, and I share from that experience. Yoga & the healing arts have become a gateway to express, grow & serve. Weaving together what I’ve learned & lived, I aim to & hold space with love, tolerance, patience, compassion & kindness. If you join my classes, expect to journey through all your layers, moving from dense to subtle. Through conscious movement, breath, meditation & sound, my classes are an opportunity to explore all that you are & show up authentically. Organic sequences designed to move with the body, flow with the breath & feel with the soul. I aim to share these ancient practices as Sacred medicine to nurture the relationship with ourselves, others & our Earth, to reconnect with our true nature, and experience life from a space of love, courage, and truth.
