I was born in Mexico City, in what used to be the city of Tenochtitlan (capital of the Aztec Empire, home to the Mexicas). I understand a huge part of who I am is a mixed product of colonization and I work to keep connected to my roots.
I practice and share yoga from my home in Ladysmith, British Columbia. I respectfully acknowledge and honour that my home sits in the traditional territory of the Stz’uminus First Nation.
Now I ask from you, to investigate what are the roots and origins of your hometown or territory. Acknowledge those who came before you, the ones erased and quieted by others who stole and took power from them. Please join me in learning more from where we came from and the mistakes we’ve made, so we can learn from them and repair.
