My Yoga Story
A stressful corporate life and a time of ill health led her to yoga. Jimena Tascon began her yoga journey in 2008 when she discovered Bikram Yoga – This yoga style have her a natural sense of wellness and tranquility. Then in 2009 she fell in love with ‘Hatha Yoga’ and went deep studying theory, asana and meditation. Her yoga path has involved extensive studies with brilliant teachers and gurus around the world, many who have had a profound influence of her unique style.
As she continued practising, a positive pattern of joy and wellness emerged. Jimena started teaching hatha vinyasa yoga in 2010 at Yogeshyam Ashram, after years of being a student and discovering her natural holistic wellbeing.
At the time she discovered a unique style – fertility yoga – and in 2011 after months of practising, detoxifying her body and meditating she was able to conceive. This event changed her life forever, so she decided to share this with women trying to conceive by teaching and coaching them into a natural fertility journey.
Then after birth she studied prenatal & postnatal yoga with several inspiring teachers saw her through pregnancy, joyful natural birth, and an amazing postnatal recovery. Discovering that this period in life is a lot calmer and healthier with yoga. She wanted to share this with other women and families as well.
