Cintamani (Claudia Musello) is a professional Marine Biologist, passionate about nature, yoga and bhakti. Born and raised in Guayaquil, Ecuador by a Spanish-Italian family, she inherited her parents’ love for adventure, the ocean and the jungle.
Her wellness and yoga path began in the year 2000, but it is not until 2009 that she surrendered herself fully to a yogic life philosophy inspired by her mentor, Andrei Ram. That same year she started her Ayurvedic studies with Dr. Jorge Luis Berra and Lic. Rossana Molho, as a certified Abhyanga masseuse, with whom she later would formalize her studies in Ayurvedic Medicine and Nutrition (Ayurveda Prema Foundation of Argentina, collaborative center of Gujarat Ayurved University, India).
Cintamani is disciple of Srila Sadhu Maharaja, who gave her her spiritual name, and disciple of Swami Veda Bharati from whom she received guidance and direct initiation.
She is co-creator and director of Sadhana, a yoga, meditation and spiritual magazine; and also co-founder and co-director of the international yoga congress “Sadhana Yoga Conference”.
Her melodic voice is a spiritual healing gift and an awakening tool.
As a kirtan and art lover, she paints mandalas while repeating sacred mantras as a healing process.
A spiritual warrior connected to Pachamama (Mother Earth), mother of two beautiful boys and loving wife, her workshops are practical, and are colored with objectivity and clarity.
