Iris was born in 1988 in Tuscany, Italy, and from a very young age loved to spend time in close contact with nature, plants, and animals.

 

Her interest for diverse cultures and languages brought her to travel and live in different continents. Iris' fascination for self inquiry led her to become a Yoga student in her early 20's, and after several teacher trainings in India and Europe, she shared this practice around the world and in her former home-base of Berlin.

 

She later delved in Ayurvedic Medicine and Bodywork, as paths to deepen her understanding of the healing power of herbs, of intuition, and kindness through loving touch.

 

In 2017 she arrived in the Brazilian Amazon where she began to heal and learn with Ayahuasca and other plants from the jungle.

A year later she started teaching Yoga and studying from the Shipibo tradition in one of Peru's most renowned Ayahuasca centers.

Ever since, Iris has felt the calling to keep walking the plants path, and did so by dieting different Master Plants from both the jungle and the Andean region of Peru.

 

One of her latest MasterPlant Diet with Maestra Juana from the Mahua lineage, inspired Iris to be in service to the plants and ancestral wisdom by assisting Ute in her offerings in the Sacred Valley of Peru.

 

Iris' personal experience of healing from trauma through the combination of somatic practices and the work with plants has deepened her compassion for and understanding of the human condition, as well as strengthened her view of the green kingdom as a powerful ally for restoring balance across body, mind and spirit.

Juliana was born in 1975 in Brazil and considers herself a world citizen, curious about cultures, traditions, and inner and outer landscapes. She's a seeker of authentic connection and a deep understanding of the mysteries of mind-heart and human relations.

She is here to love and serve, is fiercely compassionate, and can laugh easily. 
 
Ayahuasca has been one of her main teachers since she was a teenager.
 
In the late 90’s she moved out of Brazil and the world became her school.
 
While living in London she discovered Yoga and soon after she moved to India, to learn more about this sophisticated system straight from the source. During her two-year stay in Asia, she was a resident at Tushita Meditation and Dharma Centre in Dharamasala, where besides studying the curriculum, she taught yoga.

She lived at Kopan Monastery in Kathmandu and undertook trainings with teachers like The Chanchani’s and Usha Devi; Tenzin Palmo and Ven. Robina Courtin and others.
 
In California she did a two-year Yoga and Mindfulness Teacher Training with Katchie Ananda; volunteered and attended retreats and classes at Spirit Rock Meditation Centre.
 
Back in Brazil she became a resident teacher in a spiritual community and school of human development.

Juliana has a postgraduate degree in Transpersonal Psychology, and she has learned a lot of different practices and approaches on how to live and grow together mindfully.

Juliana has worked as a teacher and facilitator in a well known Ayahuasca Center in the peruvian amazon for the last five years. There she connected different western and eastern approaches of healing, with the unfolding experience of Ayahuasca. 
 
When the profound surgical quality of an Ayahuasca journey is combined with powerful tools and practices such as Yoga, Mindfulness and self inquiry, it supports further the integration of this new wisdom into our lives.
 
Juliana has delved deeper into relationship with the Plant Spirits and their wisdom, also through Dieting different Master Plants in the Shipibo Tradition.     
 
Her goal is to empower people to feel safe in their bodies, and to integrate trauma and all different parts of our human experience, so people can have clarity on their path and purpose in life.
