Following a high-performance athletics career, Yanira began her taijiquan studies

in 1996 at the National University in her native México. In 2002 she became a

5 Section Taijiquan. With a further background in therapeutic massage, she helps

students to find the heart of the art. Yanira also gives personal readings using the

Chinese ‘Book of Changes’ (Yijing) and traditional Mexican ‘animal spirits’ (nagual).
