Romina (she, her) is a Certified Yoga Teacher from Asheville Community Yoga. Originally from Chile, she first began practicing yoga 17 years ago in drama school, as part of the Grotowski inspired physical training to prepare for acting she learned from her mentor Andrea Giadach. Since then, Romina has practiced in many traditions and has felt most drawn to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga as taught by Mary Taylor, Richard Freeman, and Tim Miller.
Romina deeply believes in the transformational power of yoga. Through a steady practice of yoga and meditation she learned to appreciate her body, to tame her mind and to invite the ghosts of her soul to a cup of tea. Romina currently studies a master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and hopes to help immigrant women like herself to connect deeply with their intrinsic goodness and power.
