Raquel is a nature lover and world traveller.
She started contemporary dance at an early age and had been practicing Yoga for 10 years, however It was in 2012 when she realized how powerful and influencing yoga was for her and can be on people’s existence.
Yoga has totally changed her life, has empowering her to be happier, trust in herself and follow her dreams until becoming reality. And that is what she wants to transmit you in each class, yoga is much more than exercise and breathing techniques. It is a philosophy which gives us the tools and experience which we can take off the mat into our daily lives.
It wasn’t until 2014 when Raquel (Omcean Yogi) discovered AcroYoga with Carlos Romero and Janice Aragones and a new world of trust, care and fun was open to her.
Since then her goal has been to share this passion with as many people as possible organising Acro jams and bringing Acro to her Vinyasa classes.
In 2015 she discover other of her passions Fly High Yoga, an aerial yoga modality which comes from the Iyengar tradition. This made another change and evolution on her own practice and teaching. “FHY” helps you to reach poses like inversions that maybe you are not able yet to do without the belt but also being upside down requires more awareness of your body position and movements.
While teaching this aerial yoga style Raquel discovered how useful practice is for people with fear or no too much self-confidence and how beneficial its is for the release of the daily tensions.
She believes that Yoga and specially FHY & Acroyoga are a powerful tool for increasing self-confidence; rediscover the community feeling and the joy of finding new things about yourself, which you never thought you could have.
She would be more than happy to participate/ collaborate and engage in social projects, non-profit organizations as well as in yoga studios, retreats centers and hotels for sharing the bliss of teaching what she thinks is the healing practice which our modern life needs.
Raquel’s classes will not only challenge you, but you will walk out feeling uplifted with a smile across your face.
