Hi, I'm Ibeliz Guadalupe!
Ibeliz was first introduced to yoga having taken a Bikram class at a small studio in the Upper West Side of New York City. From there, she hopped from studio to studio across the city and decided to listen to the voice inside that insisted she share her newfound love as a yoga guide. She received her 200-Hour Vinyasa Certification from OM Factory NYC and thereafter continued to explore physical yoga practices by receiving my Level 1 & 2 Rasa-Restorative from Laughing Lotus and Level 1 Children's Yoga certification from Karma Kids Yoga. After a series of FORTUNate events, life brought her back to Ohio in 2015. During this transformative time, she has deepened her meditation practice and became a certified meditation teacher and Reiki 1 & 2 guide. These practices have supported her in the peeling back of layers of self to reset, find her truth and remember that happiness has always been within. Ibeliz grew up surrounded by the vibrant and inspiring richness of the Caribbean island of St. Croix. In 2007, she earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fashion Design with a minor in Art Therapy from the Columbus College of Art & Design. Yoga is her pathway for her to pause, reset, and breath in the midst of all life's celebrations and challenges. She believes that her purpose in life is to guide, shine light and create beauty in the world. Whether it's fashion design, art, or yoga, she aims to continue to grow and learn as a student first. Ibeliz is very excited to be on this journey. “I am light. You are light. We are Light. Aum."
