Valeria Murillo

She was born with a nomad soul, a passionate character, and a strong conviction to be a citizen of the world. Her mission is to remind others of their own light through her own light.

From her first career in Recreation she began to develop physical and emotional awareness in addition to understanding the need in human beings to be in contact with nature and to find moments and spaces of quietness and peace, some years later she was introduced to the path of Yoga, philosophy that is not only her lifestyle but her medicine.

At the age of 21 she began to teach Aerobics classes and other therapies for elderly and it was there that she understood her strong affinity for this population and for guiding people to have a better life. Today in her 30s, with 5 years of teaching yoga to all kinds of people and in different parts of the country the direction is the same, she continues to promote health with activities related to the body, spirituality and holistic health.

In 2017 she became a certified Stand Up Paddle Yoga instructor and since then she has dedicated herself to offering this activity in the northern part of the country and through contact with bodies of water she has been able to release fears that she never believed to overcome and she has also seen the same effect in many people. It is without a doubt the connection with the water that opens the way for her to carry out this retreat.

In 2018, driven by her passion and her interest in Yoga, she opened the doors of Respira Yoga CR, where she has developed as a director and teacher to date.
