Born and raised in Argentina, Paola Villegas started practicing yoga at a very young age as a result of a severe injury from a car accident. Later on yoga became a way of life for Paola as she revisited the practice to heal chronic back pain. As she started to realign her spine, she noticed that she was also realigning her entire life.
With over 11 years of experience as a Certified Yoga Instructor, Paola specializes in Vinyasa, Power, Restorative, Gentle, Prenatal and Kids yoga. In addition to being a certified Doula and Vedic Thai Massage Therapist, Paola also is Director of Blissful Yoga 200 Hour Teacher Training.
Paola’s classes are created based on the students and are perfect for all levels from beginners to the advanced practitioners. She has the unique ability to offer a safe and sacred space where every single class is a completely different experience.
Her signature flow is a powerful and intelligent sequence linking movement to breath within a nurturing environment that allows for the student to practice in a place of surrender and bring awareness to one’s inner wisdom.
Blissful Yoga is a manifestation of Paola’s passion to make yoga accessible to everyone during every stage of life.
