Lourdes

Luli Perez de Aragon discovered yoga in college when she happened to walk by a fellow student gracefully practicing yoga on a bench. She immediately looked up information on yoga. Feeling inspired by the healthy lifestyle + wanting to further her knowledge of the benefits of living yoga, she became a self-taught yogi.
After many years of finding her way into yoga, Lourdes decided to study with the Everliving School of Yoga 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Program + became a certified yoga teacher. Her yoga classes focus on guiding you to escape from your day + to enjoy the tranquility of yoga, with a soothing blend of gentle + slow stretches.
Lourdes loves the feeling of helping people increase calmness + peace into their being, + helping them achieve something that they didn’t think they could do — that is what living yoga is.

Why Ataraxia Yoga?

Lourdes: We wanted a name that was spelled + pronounced the same in English + in Spanish. We came across the Greek word Ataraxia. We love the meaning, pure bliss.
Laura: We both looked for a word that encompasses this idea of living a life filled with happiness, balance, + self-care. I thought Ataraxia is something we all should strive for in our yoga practice.
I wish I knew…
Lourdes:  Ho’oponopono, Shamanism as well as Reiki.

Most days you can find me…
