Nuria is a leader in the new generation of yoga teachers, healers, and entrepreneurs. Her strong leadership and in-depth training give her style and skill, both in and out of the yoga studio.
For as long as she can remember Nuria has known that her mission in life is to alleviate suffering in the world. She quickly realized that the fastest and most direct way to alleviate suffering was to work on the individual's mind, body and spirit. Every day she strives towards this through her rapidly growing online community, public offerings, and corporate wellness programs.
Combining her love of yoga and meditation with spiritual principles, her own experience and a deep understanding of the true nature of the self, Nuria empowers her clients to live authentic and abundant lives. She believes that we all have the potential to heal our core wounds, step into our power and lead lives full of purpose and joy.
Her one on one mentorship sessions, online courses, corporate wellness and public classes are designed to blend her own experience with ancient spiritual truths, mindfulness techniques and hands-on work in a relatable and fun style. The sessions are often described as strong and deep yet fluid and profoundly transformative by her students and mentees.
Nuria’s story begins in Santa Barbara, California and would lead her all over the world in a search for wholeness and meaning. Along the way, she met many inspiring teachers and mentors whom she still studies with today. Ultimately her path led her, both literally and metaphorically, home.
She credits her success both in healing herself and assisting others on their path, to her determination to get to the bottom of the matter, unwavering belief in the power of yoga and her incredible teachers and mentors.
Nuria earned a Bachelors in Anthropology from UC Berkeley, is a certified Reiki Master and ER500 Yoga Teacher in the lineage of Krishnamacharya. She’s studied asana, pranayama, meditation and philosophy with many senior and inspiring teachers including Heather Elton, Emil Wendel, Robert P. Goldman, John Weddepohl, Rachel Zinman and more.
Nuria, is a natural born teacher who brings wisdom and authenticity to every yoga class and meditation group she leads. She is an example of someone who practices the yoga philosophy both on and off the mat. Her classes appear to be very well thought out, and she creates a safe space for her students to gently challenge themselves, learn and grow. Her classes have been a huge asset to my life!
Nuria is an outstanding and truly inspiring teacher! Her classes challenge and enlighten in equal measure, striking just the right balance between pose and flow, exertion and meditation, intensity and tranquility, discipline and fun.
Nuria's yoga and meditation classes are two of my favorite things about Santa Barbara - along with great tacos and ocean views. As a student, I find her creative asana flows both fun and challenging, and as an instructor, I love to draw inspiration from the unique way she sequences poses and transitions. But I'm most grateful for her sadhana and pranayama teachings, where I've really been able to deepen my meditation practice and become more aware of my mind and inner self.
Words cannot describe how Nuria’s teachings have changed my life. Increased strength balance and flexibility are only some of the things I have gained from being on the mat with Nuria....the real achievements are from within me.
I have no words to express the respect and gratitude I feel towards Nuria and her teaching. She has helped me believe again in myself through the worst time of my life. She taught me self-worth and love, patience and infinite things you remind me in every practice.
The meditation guidance she provide is amazing, so full of knowledge she ignite my spirit and make me want to learn more and more. There is also something very different and unique in her practice that nobody could ever mimic, it is her voice! There is something special about it that makes her words go across our skin and touch our souls. Nuria is a a a professional healer.
Nuria creates a space where I feel instantly embraced, supported, and nourished. As a yoga teacher, she is incredibly knowledgeable, creative, and present. As a human, she is uplifting, honest, and loving. I can honestly say that I live a happier, more conscious life because of Nuria!
Nuria's keen listening, to the point questions and constructive conversation, were invaluable. I felt complete trust in her even though this was my first Reiki session. My body and mind were carrying a lot of stress. She was able to zero in on the areas my body that was holding issues and support me in letting it go. I left her office a different person
Nuria’s classes were one of my first yoga classes and definitely changed my life for ever. One of the things I love the most is simply her energy and her powerful voice. Her words always reach inside. Her classes are the full expression of yoga to me. The asana flow carefully linked, the integration of mudras to the asanas (super powerful and deep), the mantras, the guided pranayama and the guided meditation, the depth throughout the class brought by her integrating key concepts (like drishti or bhandas or chakras) and the ritual-like sacred feeling as I sit on the mat. Also, I love the music she chooses every time and the freedom of expression and adjustments she always adds for people like me who have back ( or any other) injury.
Hands down, the guided meditation has truly changed my practice, both in class and at home. I LOVE the soundtrack and the way Nuria’s class effortlessly flows. I feel so inspired and invigorated afterwards
