Biography

Mariela Ortiz is a Children’s Yoga and Mindfulness Instructor. She discovered her passion for Yoga in 1999 while living in Boston, Massachusetts, after graduating in Business Administration.  After becoming a mother of two boys, she was able to enjoy her other passion, kids, and this is why she began her preparation as a children’s Yoga instructor.

In April of 2009, Mariela founded Fit Yogis – Yoga for Kids, Costa Rica’s first and only studio designed especially for kids. She was looking to provide a special place just for children where they could receive all the wonderful benefits of Yoga in a very interactive and fun manner.

In September of 2013 she came across Mindfulness, which soon became a new way of life. This was the missing link she had been looking for as a children’s yoga instructor. She has had a daily mindfulness practice during the last 4 years and had been teaching mindfulness to kids during the last 3 years.
