A DAAD scholarship in the field of performing arts was granted to her from 2016 until 2018. In her home country, Bolivia, she obtained a BA degree in Psychology in 2014. Her artistic work (performances, videos, workshops, etc) has been awarded and presented internationally on platforms such as Tanztage Berlin, Tanzquartier Wien and HKW. In 2019 she received the Studio Grant at District Berlin with the research Yoggaton as empowerment and decolonial body practice. She is currently doing a Yoga teacher training at Ignite Yoga, a Diploma in Feminismo descolonial y Pensamiento Andino at IDECA, and offers movement therapies at Casa Kùa.
The focus of her work is on healing, empowerment through pleasure and spiritual activism, decolonial/cuir aesthetics-practices and knowledge production/reflection with and from the body.
The practice of Yoggaton is the intersection of Yoga & Reggaeton. It is a movement practice nourished by spiritual and pleasure activism and perreo to work on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels to decolonize our bodies and challenge binaries.
