Live with Intention



“In the field of yoga, nothing can be taught and learned in an instant.” B.K.S. Iyengar

Yoga is as infinite as the Universe itself. Some people begin to practice it for health reasons, others arrive seeking peace and tranquility in the midst of an increasingly convulsed society, and others pursue human and transpersonal development, a connection with themselves and with others and, beyond all this, spiritual growth, that contact with the divine spark that inhabits each one of us.

Regardless of your intention or final goal, you have reached this shore, you have before you a vast territory to explore, you will have many other fellow learners of the art of yoga; They will guide you in your journey to transform and evolve as a human being … more refined in sensitivity, perception, much more mature in thought and action.

“Only through the mirror of yoga can man reflect and recognize himself in all his fullness.” – B.K.S. Iyengar

“I am currently participating in the weekday YTT program at Shanti Heart with Gloria and what a wonderful program it is! Gloria’s energy is magnetic and she emanates love and authenticity. To me, she epitomizes a true yogi and is an amazing teacher and mentor. Her knowledge seems endless and she has a way of making abstract concepts easy to understand with her personal stories. Like another reviewer said, I knew Gloria was special from the moment I met her. Her teaching style is to honor every human where they are and she has the utmost respect and tenderness for each of her students. Shanti Heart is a beautiful place…cozy and peaceful and Gloria treats us like family. Every day of training opens new doors inside my body, mind and heart. I am learning so much and enjoying myself tremendously in the process. Above all, I am so grateful to Gloria for leading me on this path.”
