About Us

We are a small, woman-owned yoga & ceremonial center in Troncones Beach, Guerrero, Mexico.  

About Us

Adriana Gonzalez Villa is a medicine woman and ordained interfaith minister, acupuncturist, musician and yogini. She facilitates medicine ceremonies and sound healings, and offers healing sessions. Her ministry is inclusive, with a focus on indigenous wisdom traditions. Adriana is a mother and wife and lives in Guerrero, Mexico with her husband and baby. She is ethnically Mexican but was raised in the US as a dual citizen of Mexico and the USA.

 

Adriana's parents immigrated to the US and she grew up in a neighborhood of immigrants, refugees, and African American families in Houston, Texas.  As a child growing up in a community struggling to accept a new wave of migrants, she experienced rampant personal and institutionalized racism.  At 18 she enrolled at The University of Texas at Austin, where she finally began to dissolve this false reality so prevalent in America and heal from years of internalized racism.  She received degrees in Cultural Anthropology and Ethnic Studies, and was politically conscious, working in the field of social justice. 

 

Adriana worked with some of the most marginalized people in America- undocumented citizens, homeless populations, and incarcerated youth with disabilities. A career in social justice law was redirected by an initiation of Spirit.

After leaving her career behind in Austin, Adriana began participating in sweat lodge and medicine ceremonies before going back to school to develop her ministry and healing arts practice.  Years of intensive practice and calling for a vision brought in Radiant Heart Yoga & Ceremonial Arts. 

 

As a bi-cultural woman of color in America, Adriana decided that the best way to access and remember her lineage and traditions was to return to her ancestral homeland of Mexico. There, she found a home for Radiant Heart Yoga, and developed it as a space for healing and transformative personal and collective work, set in a small and peaceful town on the southern Pacific coast. There, she works with many people who are seeking healing, and a re-connection to the land and ancestral ways.
