Maga Villarreal is a certified Yoga & Meditation Teacher and Sound Healing practitioner. Since finding Yoga and Meditation in 2013 in her hometown, Venezuela; she has been learning these practices from different teachers and schools over the world, including training in NYC, India, and Nepal, where she learned the practice of Sound Healing at The International Nāda Yoga Center.
Her teachings are focused on creative ways to incorporate these traditional practices into the modern world with an accessible approach for everyone! She is also the founder of Antevasin, a well-being platform that connects the community through bilingual classes, workshops, and events.
Exceeded all my expectations. The sound healing was transportive and unlike any other sound bath I’ve experienced. Maga was incredibly authentic and created a warm, safe and encouraging space for learning. Connected with incredible humans, conquered fears with an amazing hike, delicious vegan meals by the fire, for a truly restorative experience. I’m so excited to continue my sound healing journey and to introduce into my massage therapy practice. Highly recommend!
Before our Sound Healing Immersion retreat, I hadn’t had any experience with sound baths or sound work but I was very interested to experience it and curious to learn. Maga is incredibly welcoming and a fantastic teacher; she put me at ease right away. I now feel confident in beginning to try a few different forms of sound healing in my own practice at home, and I’m looking forward to learning and experiencing more at another retreat! I left feeling relaxed, refreshed, and invigorated.
This sound healing experience was uplifting and refreshing. Maga is so patient, compassionate about her work, and you can tell she leads with her heart center. The experience was a perfect blend of teaching, practice and relaxation. The schedule was well thought out and the retreat location was also a perfect setting for what we were doing. I highly recommend any retreats/experiences with Maga because I know she's intentional with her work and you will leave with valuable new information, resources and tools to continue your healing. Thank you Maga! I look forward to attending future retreats!
From start to finish this was an amazing experience! Magnificent retreat environment, healthy and tasty food, thoughtful activities, and the best company. I could feel the care that Maga put into every detail to make this experience special for everyone. Thank you and until the next one!
