Yoga can reach each person regardless of their ability to improve their life . As Raphaela explains It is a connection with the body to be able to go inside, towards the heart, to be able to align the body so that the journey to the heart is as authentic as possible.

To be an adapted Yoga Teacher you have to know how to use your tools, many people will use music, singing, dance, theater, stories, but it will always always be very good to have continuous yoga training, the ability to have other tools emotional, artistic or creative and most importantly: KNOW HOW TO CREATE A LINK.


" The bond is very easy to create, the bond is love, unconditional love, a love that observes and listens to the needs of each person. A person with cerebral palsy needs me to be touching him to feel me and another person simply needs me to be still there for when he needs it.

"It is a bond without attachment, unconditional love but not feeling sorry because these people are stars and their families are heroes and heroines from whom to learn that they say such beautiful things, they are unique things ,,, every time I am with them, with them not the families, it is something unforgettable ”.


In her relationship with the families, Raphaela places great emphasis on respect and e l DO NOT JUDGE . " I do not work with the family because of my principle of not judging, we all already do the best that we know as parents and putting ourselves in the shoes of a person with functional diversity is impossible for which I do not judge. I like to listen to them because I understand their difficulty, it is a challenge and I like them to vent because the concern that it will be their children when they are older is enormous As I say a challenge and they are great heroes, I am not an expert therapist but I can accompany them to the best of my ability and from love.
