"The ego seeks to divide & separate. Spirit seeks to unify & heal."
- PEMA CHÖDRÖN
ANNA PAO COVARRUBIAS
In this human form I've come to know life, it has been from soul craving that I've chosen my path. Self-study is about diving deep into the core of universal wisdom for a better understanding of our purpose and presence in this reality.
Ten years ago I was very lucky to have my first formal encounter with Yoga. A severe period of depression triggered my need to seek for a spiritual practice, it was through Yoga that I gradually regained health and allowed balance and joy to reenter my life.
I've been living and sharing Yoga for a while now. The journey has gifted me with many soul-teachers. Yoga used as a complete system allows total transformation. This ever-evolving practice has the power to expand our consciousness and can dictate how we share our energy in the world.
I'm not interested on making people bendy or fit; I'm interested on sharing Yoga as a Healing Practice. Currently studying a Yoga Therapist Training Program accredited by the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT). My main goal is to aid people on their process through different practices and ancient techniques.
A beautiful path into self-healing and the recognition of our inner power.
I know I’m my best self when I’m at the sea. The freedom of the ocean is my main inspiration in life. I’m 26, born in México, raised in México & Guatemala. Since I was young my family traveled. A lot. Traveling is my passion, the reason and the main idea behind WAYS. Through different cultures I understand my roots better; I grow, I learn, I exist. To pack my bags has become the greatest pleasure in my life. I’m excited to share this with you along with the places that have changed my path forever.
Interior architecture graduate, plastic artist & designer, I paint my way through life, brushing between being a really intense person & a highly sensitive being. I love to love. Fiercely.
Yoga teacher/student/enthusiast, I believe in wellness, happiness, healing, empowerment, the power of the mind, but mostly, I believe in the power of the heart. I believe we have the power to shape this life in whichever way we want.
Done with the heart, anything is posible.
I’ll hug you, mostly.
