A seed released to the earth in the fertile spring of 1979 in Freiburg im Braisgau, Germany whose roots later on extended and whose flowers bloomed open in Oporto, Portugal.I am a Biodanza (Rolando Toro System) Facilitator, certified by the Biodanza SRT School of Oporto, Portugal and also a Didactic of the same System.
In the last few years I have dedicated myself to the creation of diverse Signature workshops such as: Roots in the Earth, Roots in Heaven; Chaos, Creativity and the Return of the Sacred; The Birth of the Cosmic Man; Under the Sign of Affection; Surrender to Love; Sacred Warrior; Ecstatic Lover; Mystic Magician; The King; Equinox and Solstice Celebrations in Nature.

After graduating in clinical pyscho-pedagogy, I trained in Gestalt therapy; these tools permitted me to work during some years in the field of behavioural deviations such as drug addictions, prostitution and also the homeless. Simultaneously, I attended different theatrical and dance workshops.  I have facilitated skills development groups through Transactional Analysis; Relaxation groups; Dramatic Expression groups (children and adults). I have been at the service of the “Teléfono Internacional de la Esperanza” and worked during few years as a teacher of pedagogy in a project to train educational providers.

Delia has been on the path of self-discovery from an early age, diving into the depths of Eastern philosophies, including Buddhism, Tantra, Yoga and Ayurveda. She took her first yoga asana class in 1999, at a Sivananda yoga school in South Africa. The effect it had was profound, like nothing she had ever experienced. She felt spacious, elated, in love and blissful. Never having been drawn to yoga for the physical benefits, she was always attracted to the spiritual aspect, and after her first class, she knew that connection to something greater than herself could be found through the body. As some say… “Your body is the doorway to your spiritual awakening”


The practice of Yoga, Tantra and Ayurveda continues to transform Delia’s perception of life. Intrigued at how these paths help to improve your relationship with your body and how this affects your relationship with the world around you, she continues to dive deep into these practises and finds great joy in sharing them with those around her.
