I studied biology at the University of Chile, I did a master in cognitive science at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris, and I obtained a PhD in Cognitive Science at the University Pièrre et Marie Curie in Paris (2012). During my master and PhD in Paris, I especialized in a interview technique of phenomenological inspiration, “L’entretien d’explicitation”, developed to incorporte the experiential dimension of cognitive phenomena in their scientific study. Then, I did a postdoc at the Institute of Complex Systems of Valparaiso with the project “Pain and body awareness: an investigation into bodily experience of fibromyalgia patients”. I also obtained an OCR diploma in circus skills and physical theater at Circomedia in Bristol, and I studied Corporeal mime at the Ecole du mime corporel dramatique in London. From 2002 until 2007 I worked as a performer in numerous site-specific work with the artist Isabel Rocamora. I began to practice Ashtanga yoga in 2000 and I teach it since 2007.
