Constanza Eliana grew up in Puerto Rico until her family moved when she was 7 years old to Illinois, just 3 hours south of Chicago. The culture shock, having to adapt, and assimilate quickly created childhood frustration and trauma, having experienced racism and sexism. It was this first hand experience that led her to decolonization work and unpack her own internalized oppression.
She began her Yoga journey in 2009 by working for studios where she could not afford to practice and became a Yoga Instructor in 2013. She noticed quickly that studios and teachers were not practicing what they were preaching and that simple mindset shifts could make all the difference. Her instruction became more refined and social justice became her focus. She began consulting in 2019.
She currently lives in Los Angeles, CA and travels teaching and consulting.
