Robert Ramirez
Meditation, Mindfulness, Holistic Life Coach 

I was born in Guatemala in 1981. I was always very curious about Buddhism and I started meditating at the age of 12 because of a book I found in a library, although I started to take it seriously at the age of 18 while going through a very hard period of my life. Since then I have only gone deeper and deeper into the subject, experimenting with different types of meditations, breath work, and other techniques. I moved to Europe in 2007 looking for better life and work opportunities. In my life journey I was blessed to meet more teachers and I continued to experiment with even more tools and began to see how my life was transforming. I was becoming my first customer. I experimented with mixing all the techniques I had learned and my life radically changed in no time: meditation, mindfulness, breath work, visualization, ho'oponopono, and more.

I have always dreamed of sharing my knowledge and experiences with people and showing them the value of living an emotionally healthy life. Our emotions influence and affect every area of our lives and can either empower or weaken our actions and strength. This helped me decide to start organizing wellness and emotional health retreats in 2018. Thanks to all this and the experience that we have all had with Covid19, it was possible to reach even more people and demonstrate the power of meditation and mindfulness.

Namaste, my name is Lena and I am a free and loving spirit. I practice and share different techniques of self-knowledge such as Hatha Raja, Dharma Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Reiki and Cacao ceremonies. My physical body was born in Bulgaria, while my soul has lived in many parts of the world (Mexico, the Netherlands, Asia and right now Spain), always finding its home in nature and in the mind / body / spirit connection. However, the most important journey of my life has been the journey within. Yoga came into my life when I was just 17 years old through the practice of pranayama (yogic breathing). From this sacred place, I share everything I have experienced on my humble spiritual journey.
