Yoga has been part of my life for more than 10 years and my practice has
helped to be stronger, more flexible and brave, both inside and outside the mat.

hours with Master Víctor M. Flores, founder of the Institute of Yoga Studies.

a dose of inspiration to help them deepen their practice and get them out
of the mat feeling refreshed and balanced

Musician instrumentalist and Composer with specialty in Music Therapy.
Although from the 8 years I began my trip with the music, it was 20 years ago that it became a constant discipline, until today. I started in the world of rhythms when I turned the drums and percussion instruments into my vocation and profession. After studied Composition in Mexico I gained greater awareness when I started to understand the importance of music theory and experiment with other harmonic and melodic instruments.
When I incorporated the piano into my practices I realized how I acceded to an emotional plane that was not accessible through rhythmic instruments (and vice versa). I understood through studies the way in which a composer uses theoretical knowledge to awaken specific feelings and emotions in the viewer. I was interested from that moment in studying the relationship of music with emotions and moods in the audience. I studied graduates and composition workshops for films and documentaries, understanding more and more the great reach that music has in the stimuli to the human being.
I understood that music is much more powerful than I thought, since it goes beyond being an aesthetic art, and as a musician I felt a certain responsibility. I began more than 10 years ago to study the therapeutic effects of music and the different ways in which music has been used for welfare purposes for thousands of years nowadays in rehabilitation clinics. I studied a Music Therapy course and I did internships in Mexico.
I founded the Trisbaya Project 2 years ago, with the aim of instructing society on the therapeutic effects of music. This is achieved through constant research work and the composition of themes or musical sessions with specific objectives such as reducing levels of anxiety and stress, among others.
ARMANDO FAJARDO AJ
Multidisciplinary artist started in 1999 with dance with fire and glow-sticks. In nightclubs. In 2000 graffiti and eventually some murals and canvases, quite linked to the HIP HOP scene in Nicaragua. To enter so much and study hip hop culture (composed of 4 elements: b boy, mc, dj, writer), I understood the need to complement myself as an artist in different areas or disciplines. Over time I have been experimenting and learning more and more from different disciplines and that has led me to transmit the art that I hope to achieve that I feel closest to my feelings, but from their experiences.
With presence in festivals such as Urbanica (creation and coordination of artists), Magma fest, Danza fest, Full Moon Nicaragua, among others. With presentations of dance with fire and leds of images, live painting, fire signs, decoration and stage designer, among other things.

"Within the Spiritual journey you understand that suffering becomes something that has been given to you to show you where your mind is still stuck. It's a vehicle to help you go to work. That's why it's call Grace" - Ram Dass
Born under the lunar sign of Leo, second daughter of a couple of 3 children, I was a girl lover of books, solitude and perfection, I always thought that I had the responsibility of helping my family to move forward, which is why I took to acquire great responsibilities at an early age such as the management of my parents' company for at least 10 years.
Throughout my childhood and the first years of my adulthood I struggled strongly with my ego, developed a very bad relationship with my parents and siblings, my friends, my partner and even with God, causing a state of almost permanent suffering.
At the age of 24, I decided to have a child and even though I lived a complicated pregnancy, that event was the beginning of my new self.
After becoming a mother and experiencing what true unconditional love means, I decided to change my life completely and to embark on the path in the pursuit of Happiness (then I realized that the best state is not Happiness, but the permanent contentment "Santosha"), so I discovered Yoga, word that until 8 years ago I never heard before.
As a passionate and determined "Leo" I have spent the last 8 years exploring the spiritual path, developing and growing in my personal practice, studying the sacred texts, praying, loving and facilitating with humility and compassion the practice of the Yoga of Life that It also involves stretching the body but especially the mind and the heart.
In this path I discovered that I am loving awareness and even when it seems difficult, I realized that it is possible to love everyone, honoring the Light in others as in oneself.
With me you will learn about how to star and grow in your personal practice from surrendering to the will of the Divine Master who lives within you, exploring the body with a focus in breathing techniques, conscious movement and meditation.
Certified 200 hrs Hatha Yoga and Meditation Teacher, Reiki Healer and Marketing Specialist, I love to chant, pray, dance, read and travel, always ready to learn about new things and happy to meet new people.
Find me at the Om Little Corn Festival, join me in my classes and workshops and let's build beautiful memories together.
