Mariposa’s yoga practice began from the age of ten, when her Mama would take her to the classes she was teaching. When Mariposa was 18, she decided to leave home, to leave her comfort zone.
She knew there was something else inside her, beyond what she had been told and trained to be. She went to New York City, learned English and became an independent designer.
Realizing that she could make her dreams come true anywhere, she left the city to explore the world, especially South America and Asia Throughout her travels, she found herself as a mirror, reflecting the various cultures she would encounter. She began to communicate with ancestral plants and medicines that brought her back to her pure, source energy.
In 2017, she received her first 200-hour yoga certification and became a teacher. This led her to discover the studies of tantra and Breathwork in Ko Phangan, Thailand.
