Aymara Padron I am a woman, mother and creator. I was born in Venezuela, where at the age of 5 I started studying classical Ballet and continued until 15 at the Darius Milahud Conservatory in Paris, I returned to Merida / Venezuela where I graduated in Art History at the Universidad de los Andes at the same I was studying dance at the Municipal School and doing theater at the TARIMA TEATRO company where I had my first encounter with the body expression beyond dance. I finished my training in London at THE PLACE Contemporary Dance School.
Then I moved to Barcelona where I currently reside seeking to deepen the body work and I did 3 years at the Laboratory School of Dramatic Body Expression, directed by Jessica Walker, a school that opened the doors to knowledge and real understanding of body work and in turn to Kundalini yoga in which I later trained as a teacher and to which I currently dedicate myself along with the Aguahara a technique of body movement in the water where the one who imparts it only accompanies the one who receives to have an aquatic experience that can go from a simple experience of deep relaxation to moving the cellular memory of our body and releasing traumas or deep pain stored in both the soul and body.
I have had the opportunity to complement my body search by working with teachers such as Atsushi Takenoushi, Gabriel Forestieri, Minako Seki, Lipi Hernandez, Hargobind Singh, Isabel Solana and others of less renown but who have also contributed in their measure to my training as a BODYWORKER. I have decided to take on that name because this term perfectly represents what I am ... a BODY WORKER.

Rashmi’s thirst for yoga, spirituality and a healthy lifestyle runs in her veins as she comes from a privileged Eastern Indian family founded on a disciplined Vedic upbringing. The childhood was richly seasoned with her maternal grandparents’ inspiration to find her spiritual core, introducing her to YOGA & TANTRA at the very tender age of 3. For many years, Rashmi enjoyed a successful career in glamour and media, but her heart ached to find her true purpose and sense of being in this universe and to serve and spread the love and passion she always felt towards Shakti and Shiva, the divine union of ultimate power, nature and pure consciousness. It was the practice of Tantra, under guidance of her ishta devi Shakti and her grandmother (a practicing tantric) that she found her purpose. Through this she discovered her passion in life - to heal and help people on a holistic level and bring them health, happiness, harmony and healing in their lives with their own being, purpose, relationships, and sexuality. Rashmi currently devotes her time between United States and India living out her vision to bring the blessings of #TANTRA and the YOGA heritage to all in the east and west as well as an activist & advocate for “Restoring the Dharma” for the sake of Humanity.
