      A Yoga Teacher and Certified Health Coach, I have studied yoga, meditation, pranayama and many nutrition theories including macrobiotics and Ayuverda, around the world for over 20 years. My travels have taken me to explore many directions and practices, under the guidance of Sri K Pattabhi Jois, Eddie Stern, The Sivananda school in India, and Dr Robert Svoboda. I have hosted retreats in Costa Rica, Colombia, Ecuador that combine my modern holistic approach.

    Wild Child is a retreat center that curates unique transformational experiences and fun adventures for purpose-driven travelers who seek discovery, connectivity, and fulfillment through positive engagement with people, culture, and nature. Wild Child Village is rooted on the edge of a rainforest in La Reserve Manabi, a 70-acre Eco-Community in the hills above Ayampe. With views of the ocean and mountains, the village is discretely tucked in the canyon for privacy, solitude, and room to grow.

    Ecuador is one of the most biodiverse countries in the world. The Andes, Amazon Rainforest, Highlands and the Galapagos Islands are four diverse and unique regions of the country, not to mention the surf is awesome too!!!
