Co Facilitator during our Mountain Retreats
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.
