Hey! I'm Sofia Isabel.
Writer, certified Ashtanga and Hatha yoga teacher, MSc in Development Management and full time conscious being. I grew up in La Paz Bolivia, 3600 meters over sea level which gave me a good sense of what the weather is like up there. All jokes aside, I believe that human experience is a result of our own unique conditionings—education, race, culture, table manners, etc. Conditionings are habits just like having a cup of coffee every single morning, and the good news is that habits can always be changed.
I've spent my entire life weaving between Hinduism, Andean cosmology, Amazonian Shamanism, Southern Ute traditions, Sikhism and Dzogchen Buddhism. Oscillating between different visions of the world taught me that there is no one right way to be human. It's really just a matter of perspectives which can be changed, mix-and-matched and turned upside-down to make life more fulfilling. Realizing that everything is a matter of perspective means that we get to stop taking ourselves so seriously— we can begin creating our experiences instead of reacting to them much in the same way that children create their own imaginary worlds.
The Unlearning Project is a dialogue between spirituality, psychology, and poetry for the sake of making the world a more beautiful place. I share articles and poems on topics ranging from life lessons to productivity, as well as a range of videos with yoga, pranayama, and guided meditations.
Welcome to my playground!
