Partner | Retreat Coordinator

Hi everyone, I am Catherine, a native Colombian with an aspiration for travel, adventure and natural healing. Being from Colombia, where nature thrives, it's embedded in your brain to go out and wonder. During my childhood I would spend days in the mountains with my mother and aunts who would show me ways to heal using plants we would find along the way. Since fruits, herbs and plants grow everywhere it makes natural healing and spirituality a staple for the people in my country. This curiosity has taught me to “make things happen” and by make- I mean "hand" make. 


I try to use any opportunity I can to discover more of the world, what it naturally gives us and more of myself. I am happy to have met Lupita and Stefanie years ago during University and am excited to join the Heart-ga team. I am currently being trained to assist in our aromatherapy workshops and yoga on retreats. The Heart-ga philosophy has always inspired me to follow my heart and I only wish to inspire you to follow yours.



Co-Founder | Consultant 

Namaste, my name is Pita. Discovering yoga and mindfulness as a teenager opened the door to a world of connection and healing for me. Over the years, I have thrived in both the corporate and wellness worlds, and have devoted myself to use these experiences to help others find balance and wellbeing in their own lives.

In addition to my extensive holistic trainings, I am currently pursuing a graduate degree in Psychology with a focus on the psychology of stress and human behavior. This academic background, combined with my years of experience in the corporate and wellness worlds, have given me a unique perspective on the challenges people face in today's world, and how best to overcome them.

I hold certifications in a range of practices, including Bhakti Yoga, Traditional Hatha Yoga and Mindfulness, and Trauma-informed Yoga. Through these certifications, I have honed my expertise in a range of approaches to wellness, enabling me to provide tailored guidance and support to each individual I work with.

With over 3,500 hours of donated community service, extensive experience leading wellness retreats around the world, and a deep commitment to my own ongoing learning and growth, I am honored to share my expertise and passion for wellbeing with others.

Yoga Teacher

Hello beautiful souls!!

My name is Chantel and I have been practicing Yoga Asana for as long as I can remember, my grandmother showed me that these intentional movements were the key to longevity and balance in life. As life went on I found I could use Yoga to transition gracefully through the many stages and struggles life often presents and I knew I needed to share this life tool, this gift! I started my journey to become a yoga teacher in 2017, a long the way I found my true inner self that had been wanting to emerge, I studied Human growth and development as well as kinesiology. A few years ago I started a career as an Ergonomist, assisting everyday tech workers on alignment,  yoga in their workspaces and assisting them with awareness of their own bodies.  

I am elated to join such a loving and beautiful team like Heart-Ga!
