Hello there. My name is Guillermo Abarca. I am Mexican and my parents are too. Ever since I remember I felt attracted to spiritual atmospheres. I began practicing Hatha Yoga at the age of 14 years old and that of course changed my life forever. Pretty soon with the practice of yoga I became Vegetarian and adopted a healthy life style. Soon also I started preparting to become a yoga instructor. Besides my regular practice of yoga I also got into modern dance and I took a number of different styles and schools and teachers. I have been a yoga instructor for more than 30 years. Through out that time I have seen many people get well and enjoy the many benefits of this ancient practice.

I am the Coordinator of the Yoga Los Suenos Program and believe that yoga should be lived, on and off, the mat. Over the last ten years I have been studying and experimenting with a diverse range of teachers and styles of yoga. For the last six years my teaching focus has been Vinyasa and Hatha Flow. Currently, I am inspired to deepen my practice with advanced studies in Shadow Yoga working with the energetic system of the human body and the sister science of Yoga, the study of Ayurveda, which has prompted me to also teach Restorative Yoga. It is a joy to study and share these ancient practices!
"Be true, Yogis and Yoginis. We have to trust in the pure essence of the heart. Thinking only about asanas ( poses ) to make you stronger is not the achievement. It is the pure love of breathing into them."

Born and raised in Finland with a Master's in Economics, I find myself on a completely different path, spending my days surfing, paddleboarding and practicing and teaching Yoga in Sayulita, a beautiful beach town in Mexico. Ashtanga was the first type of yoga that I started with, but slowly felt more drawn to different styles of which Vinyasa and Yin are now the closest to my heart. I am a devoted yoga practitioner with a love of sharing my passion with my students. I feel it is important that to continue on this path, I must always have an open heart and a willingness to learn from others.

My passion in life is making people feel happy healthy! I have been a Massage Therapist since October 2010. In October of 2015 I completed my Yoga teacher training at the Davanna Yoga studio in Puerto Vallarta. I love to explore all types of yoga, but the Vinyasa style practice is what really makes my soul spark! Combining all of the elements of a healthy body; movement, strength, flexibility and awareness I find this practice to be like a massage for the body and soul. My goal in my classes is to make the Vinyasa practice accessible and enjoyable for all levels of yogis by giving specific cues on muscle engagement and breathing. You will hear me say often "Sthira-sukham āsanam", this Sanskrit proverb comes from the Yoga Sutras (II.46) and translates to "The yoga asana should be steady and comfortable". Whether we are practicing our handstands or we are in our sukhasana (easy pose) the goal is to find the joy and comfort in the pose!
