We are a small, woman-owned yoga & ceremonial center in Troncones Beach, Guerrero, Mexico. We opened our doors in February of 2018, and have been steadily growing our community since then!
The vision for and even the name Radiant Heart Yoga was birthed in 2012, and we opened our doors in 2018. We happily continue to evolve, learn and grow every day.
Adriana is an ordained Minister of Walking Prayer, Healer, Acupuncture Detox Specialist, and Certified Yoga Instructor. She offers plant medicine ceremonies, yoga classes, sound meditation and healing sessions. Her ministry is inclusive, with a focus on indigenous wisdom traditions.
She is a Mexicana by birthright and a dual citizen who grew up in the US, 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, Adriana 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 active, working in the field of social justice.
Adriana worked with some of the most marginalized people in America~ undocumented citizens, the homeless, and incarcerated youth with disabilities. A career in social justice law was redirected by an acute episode of spiritual awakening- an initiation of Spirit.
The process of awakening was transformative, and became an impetus for the continued exploration of the revelation of God consciousness. Though raised in a Catholic family, Adriana was still taught about some of the mystical traditions of Mexico and in her own lineage.
Rev. Adriana Maria González Villa
Minister of Walking Prayer
After leaving her career behind in Austin, Adriana began studying and participating in sweat lodge and plant medicine ceremonies and went to school for yoga, bodywork, and other healing arts practices. 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 "brick and mortar" 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 of Mexico. Adriana directs the center and offers a variety of ceremonies, events, classes and therapies. The center also hosts gifted healers, workshop leaders, and medicine people who come to share their knowledge.
In 2018 Adriana and her partner Dimitri Mugianis founded Iboga Revolution, an organization offering retreats and private sessions with the visionary medicine ibogaine. These group retreats and private sessions in Baja California offer a compelling platform for personal transformation and collective revolution.
