Ceci Orozco (ella), es originaria de Guadalajara, Jalisco, México. Ella es atleta de corazón, apasionada por las actividades al aire libre y el aprendizaje continúo. Ceci ha practicado y competido en atletismo y racquetball, lo cual la ha orillado a cultivar un estilo de vida activo, y curiosidad por prácticas holísticas que complementan su entrenamientos y desarrollo como persona. Cuando descubrió la práctica del yoga en el 2009 es cuando se da cuenta que movimiento corporal (en cualquiera de sus modalidades: deportes, danza, caminatas en la naturaleza, etc.) le brinda gran satisfacción y la inspira a conectar consigo misma. Ceci llegó a Portland, Oregón en el 2014 y en el 2016 recibió su certificación como maestra de yoga. Justo hace un año se graduó del curso “300hr Ayurvedic Clinical Foundations” el cual combinó dos de las grandes pasiones de Ceci: cuidado holístico del cuerpo y mente arraigado en la sabiduría del Āyurveda y Yoga, y medicina herbolaria. Actualmente es estudiante de la maestría, "Leadership in sustainability education", en Portland State University. Como maestra de yoga, Ceci invita a sus estudiantes a que despierten su curiosidad, conecten con su respiración, y la sabiduría innata de su ser y cuerpo. Cuando no está dando clases de yoga, Ceci disfruta de estar en contacto con la naturaleza (The Gorge y La Costa de Oregon son sus lugares favoritos para distraer la mente y balancear energías), entrenar racquetball, viajar, hacer medicina herbolaria, pasar tiempo con su familia en México e impartir talleres de movimiento y bienestar integral en Portland y en México.
Movement should feel good. For me, yoga is an extension of the most basic joy of moving my body. Yoga has helped me build a better relationship with my body and my breath. When I feel stressed, I can practice a breathing technique or move through a sequence and come back into the present moment. Yoga doesn't have to be complicated and you certainly don't need to be flexible. It can be as simple as noticing, right now, that you are breathing. I teach students to notice what a pose feels like from the inside, rather than worrying about what a pose looks like from the outside. To create a well-rounded practice, I incorporate non-yoga movements of strength training, natural movement, and The Franklin Method into my classes. I graduated from Yoga Teacher Training at The Bhaktishop in Portland, OR in 2016 and am enrolled in their 300-hour continuing education program.
