Ximena Araya Fischel Confirmed to Teach Yoga at UNIFY FEST 2017!

As a former professional dancer and cultural manager, yoga has been the lighting bug guiding her way through the various fields that shape practice and offerings. She is a 500-YTT with the Yoga Alliance, completing her certifications in Vinyasa, Ashtanga and Prenatal Yoga in India and New Mexico, USA. She’s also a graduate from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in NYC, and founder of Opari by Ximena.

“As an instructor, my inspiration comes from sharing with others all the beautiful gifts yoga has brought to my life—and sharing those gifts in a way that is natural and accessible to everyone. Humility and devotion toward my Ashtanga practice are constant reminders that nurture my teaching discipline. I have been consistently practicing yoga for over ten years. ¡Pura Vida!”
