How I Made it Through my First International Workshop in Spain - Part 3

May 10, 2018


We arrived back to Barcelona in the evening when it was already raining, went back to the hotel quickly and fell asleep, excited toward the workshop I was teaching the next day.

I woke up that Sunday with a ton of butterflies in my stomach, both excited and nervous about the workshop, even though I talked to all of the participants before and was heading there with my friend Natalia.

The workshop was hosted at the beautiful Ubuky Studio, which has such good energy as its kind owner Fernando, who had laid out light food and drinks for everyone before we arrived.

As the brave students, who woke up for a 9 AM workshop on a cold Sunday morning, started coming in my anxiety lessened, and I was so happy to greet every

one of them.

Social media is funny that way; you talk to someone with the same interests you have from a whole other country, which you wouldn't have been able to meet in any other way, and if you're lucky enough you get to travel and meet them in person!

I feel even more fortunate for having the ability to be able to give back a practice that has given me so much, and to teach which is a new found love of mine.

It felt so gratifying to see everyone giving them all and absorbing everything, and I can only pray that this workshop was not only fun for them but also helpful and fave them the tools they were looking for in order to deepen their backbend practice.


A huge thank you again for all my beautiful students, and for Ubuky studio for having us.


Part 4 about the last day of photo shoot with Xavi and Natalia will be coming next week...
