Guest Teacher Cristiane Machado

Cristiane Machado is Brasilian by Birth and a Citizen of The Universe by choice. She has moved to the USA in July 1999 where she lived until February 2019. She is now living a Pura Vida in Montezuma Costa Rica.

Cristiane has graduated from The Florida School of Massage in May 2004 and she has been practicing Massage Therapy since them, giving her 15years of hands on experience in working with the Human body.  Cristiane’s knowledge, experiences and studies of Physicalityand how it gets affected by every day living and stressors, has opened her curiosity to the  less obvious subtleties and ways that the Body communicates discomfort, pain and dis-ease.  Studying Reiki  and Johrei (energy work) since she was 13 yo, inspired the understanding of HOW Energy plays a big role in our daily lives and she loves to make that understanding accessible and demystified. Actually, Cristiane’s intention with her craft as a Body worker is to simplify and clarify the communication between our physical bodies, our minds and our emotions and HOW it all affects our daily living.

Cristiane has toured the Globe teaching Zumba Master Classes and hosting Yoga and ZUMBA Retreats. Cristiane is filled with Passion for ALL types of therapeutic movement. Either by Flowing the physical body into Asanas along the Breathe, or learning how to move the Ethereal and Energetic bodies into anecstatic and tantalizing rhythmic dance with the Self, Cristiane Believes that EVERY Body was designed to move hence her desire to combine YOGA, Breathe, Meditation and DANCE.

Her studies of Yoga started at Anamaya when she attended a 200 YTT and has deepened as she connects with profound understanding of ALL matter and the in between.

Throughout her self-loving and self-healing journey, she has learnt and cultivated sacred tools that she is dedicated to share. Cristiane uses Sacred Cacao,Mantra discipline, Breathe, Journaling (self-inquiry) and  a whole lot of having FUN while doing it.

A firm believer that our thoughts and intentions do co-create our reality, she became a Trail Blazer for Mike Dooley’s program, Infinite Possibilities and she has presented in his conferences and taught several workshops on The Art of Manifesting Your Dreams into Reality, adding practical ways to our tools box that will facilitate a reset on old thought patterns and to realign one’s life to its true purpose.

Cristiane’s cultural and eclectic upbringing has instigated in her the belief that we are ALL one, and no matter the status quo, we ALL deserve to be seen under the same light. That belief has inspired and empowered her to co-create the YogaLoka Project, a non-profit dedicated to bring YOGA, Meditation and holistic health to marginalized populations in order to transform mental illness into mental wellness.

Infinite Possibilities Workshop

Have you ever imagined waking up every single day with a full heart and a big smile on your face?

Probably not as you might have been taught that life is hard, unfair, and not everybody is meant to be successful and happy… does that sound familiar? What if I were to challenge you AND those believes? What if I were to tell that actually life is grand, you are Divine, and each and every one of us has the birth right to be deeply fulfilled and happy. That is exactly what I am bringing to my Yoga Retreat at Anamaya. A new way into thought and a new way of living life.

The Infinite Possibilities Workshop is a program developed by Mike Dooley, aka The Universe dude that breaks away old patterns of thinking into a more open, deliberate and conscious way of being. We have all been conditioned into believing that there is not enough of everything for every human being, and our society became sick and competitive; creating a fear base state that only brings us down and away from our Divine selves.

I started working with the program after receiving the “Notes from The Universe” which “accidentally” started arriving in my mail box… I truly do not remember signing up for them, still, receiving those notes were the highlight of my mornings. What was it about those notes that was so special? Well, they spoke of truth. Simple messages that we are ALL meant to be happy and we CAN live fulfilled lives. That by itself resonated very deep within my gut, aka soul. I would even get emotional reading those messages and thats when I knew this guy, Mike Dooley, was up to something profound.

I read and re-read his books and sign up for a conference in New Mexico in 2016. It was ALL I expected and MORE and I became a trail blazer for the program, hosting a workshop for 12 people in 3 days after the conference. Since then, I have been using his program for my own growth and expansion, and have also supported hundreds of humans like me to lead a life with purpose, joy and a deeper understanding of how our thoughts become things and how we are manifesting the lives we are living.

The massive shifts I experienced by incorporating the program into my life were also noted by my closest friends and family. I was no longer afraid of living my deepest truths and I no longer experienced lack. I started feeling the certainty that I was here for many reasons and that one of these reasons was to be HAPPY.

Within the years of being involved in this program and receiving the notes over the last 3 years, I can say I am truthfully blissful and grateful to be ALIVE. I have co-created the life of my dreams with clarity and I no longer suffer. It doesn’t mean I don’t have any problems… it means I’ve gathered tools to navigate my life with an open heart. Even when life throws unexpected stuff my way, I can respond to it instead of re=acting.

There is JOY to be experienced and invite YOU to dive into it with me in this 6 hour workshop that is designed to challenge and shift your way of thinking. We will gather together and work the program which consists of questions in a journaling form that instigate your mind and deepens your sense of self and how our families, teachers and society can sometimes impose “their” way into our psyche.

This 6 hours workshop will be divided in 3 days throughout our retreat and it be a perfect complement for this self-care and self-healing journey you are on. You will receive printed material and we will work side by side in breaking patterns that no longer have a purpose in your growth, expansion and evolving process.

Financial investment: $125.00 working material included.
