Arjuna Valero

Yoga Teacher

“Rid your body of its impurities, let your speech be true and sweet, feel friendship for the world, and with humility seek wealth and knowledge”

Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya

RESIDENT YOGA TEACHER

Arjuna is a Yoga instructor who seeks to motivate the student to find and consciously define among the wide variety of Yoga styles, the practice that is best suited to his anatomy and personal search. Arjuna had contact with his first physical practices of Yoga in his childhood and early adolescence, it was not until the age of 16 that he began to deepen in the different areas of knowledge that Yoga offers as a way of life.

At that same age he was invited to take his first certification focused on Traditional Hatha Yoga (Sivananda Style) under the teachings of Olinka Villanueva Zuno in 2014. Years later he also trained as a Vinyasa and restorative Yoga instructor in Davanna Yoga (2017) with Anna Laurita. Deepening and looking for more inclusive ways of practice for different kinds of bodies, ages and minds he was instructed as a Yin Yoga Teacher in the summer of 2017 by Maria Abad in Puerto Vallarta.

There she took her first yoga class and eventually enrolled in teacher training. She has seven years of teaching experience including studios (virtual and in person), pop up and music events, kids after school programming and senior citizen centers around New York City and Puerto Vallarta. At her home studio in Brooklyn, she took an alignment based 200 HR Vinyasa training.
