Coaching Philosophy

I love being able to share my knowledge and that this allows people to be able to change their lives positively. Being an instructor has also led me to meet great human beings who have also allowed me to learn even more from them and who above all have filled me with their great energy and their passionate way of living. Enjoying every moment, every focus, every step and allowing themselves to go little by little until what is done consciously can be perfectly executed unconsciously. Always keeping in mind that if it is not fun then it means that it is being done wrong, our bodies always are speaking to us, we must only allow ourselves to listen to them, and what better than in a practice that also provides physical, mental and emotional benefits such as running.
