Feeling at home in Peru, is something that I didn't really think of. As soon as we arrived, my wonderful cousin Jhimi came to pick us up at the airport and I felt lucky. I love this country, nothing to say. I just love its culture. Its mess, its tastes, its rhythms, its languages, its colors, its warmth and welcomingness. Peru touches deeply my roots. When I approached the arrival time in the plane I started to feel so excited and my heart was full of joy. I never thought that Kasper would be ready to live in this country for some time to discover more about my story. He surprised me with his wonderful way of adaptability and never ending curiosity. He embraced this culture the first day he arrived and did his best to know more about everything and made huge efforts to improve his Spanish. Peru feels like home.
When we arrived we reconnected immediately with my family here and I was so happy to see that everybody is doing great in their lives, so happy to see my cousin Sammy in love with Gisela and waiting for their new daughter. My aunts and uncles made us all feel great inviting us for the best dinner ever had and spending their lovely time with us. My cousin Celeste and her mum helped me so intensely to find an apartment here in Lima, our new little home.
We live in Miraflores, sharing our apartment with other 3 nice roomies. It is close to everything we need and Kasper could easily find his new office space a co-working space in Barranco, another beautiful neighborhood close to here.
When we arrived from Mexico we were tired and still a bit sick, we started to feel the practical issues (economy, future plans, lots of impression and lots of traveling), so the need of rooting down before continuing Nûna Moves was important. Unfortunately, the week before when Kasper had to start to work with his design project his laptop broke completely and since then it caused us a few problems. One of them is that we stopped editing the videos for Nûna Moves and Kasper had to use my small laptop for working. That's one of the reasons we felt sorry and a bit sad about the slowness of Nûna Moves with sharing more info and especially video in the socials. But not everything can be controlled and many things should just be accepted to be ready to find new more solutions...
The luck was with me and just before I landed in Lima, I found an amazing Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training I've been waiting since a long time to attend this path. And it took me a long time to find the right training. I was so happy when I saw that Jennifer More was in Lima to give her training I was crazy happy. I am now in the middle of the training and I already feel so grateful.
But I will definitely write a post just about it because it deserves it.
I should definitely mention my experience at the Acro-community here in Lima guided by the sweetest souls Mafer and Lele, together with wonderful facilitators like Franco gave us an incredible welcome in Lima. Everybody has a unique openness and brightness. I experienced one of the most amazing acroyoga jam playing with everybody having so much fun. Mafer was one of the main teacher that started to share classes here in Lima and Arequipa, her mission was very clear and she started sharing all she knew about acroyoga connecting her knowledge about psychology, for her Acroyoga is a real therapy. She involved Lele and she founded the Acrobeats.
Thanks to them we will be able to share more with all of the community, our acroyoga researches and exploration...
And after that I can only say that I feel at home here. With my granadilla, ripe mango, my family... my soul is happy.
