Mariposa (Cristina Alcalde) was born in Chihuahua, Mexico, where she grew up until she was 18 years old. She was born into a family of vegetarian yogis, where her spiritual growth was and is considered her most significant personal achievement.
Her yoga practice began at age ten when her mother took her to the classes she taught. When Mariposa was 18, she embarked on a spiritual quest to travel the world.
With the use of Tantra, Breathwork and Yoga, Cristina spread her wings and gave herself her spiritual name: Mariposa. Realising that all the answers lie within and that nothing outside is necessary for transformation, she became free as a butterfly.
It was there when she gave birth to her breathing method, her Respira tu amor Breathwork, which means breathe your own love in Spanish.
Mariposa is sharing group retreats and 1-1 transformers called Metamorphosis Retreats, and she also shares ceremonies and workshops in all parts of the world.
