Marcela Mota is originally from Brazil, but spends most of her time in Thailand, Bali and Europe teaching Yoga Teacher Trainings, Immersions and Workshops.
She has a Bachelor in International Affairs and a Masters in Business Economics and Management of Sustainability. She worked for the United Nations as well as in corporate and public sectors for many years.
With her passion of understanding the world thru the lenses of the 5 Elements of Nature and her admiration of the human complexity, combined with her caring and playful personality, Marcela creates the perfect environment for her students to go inwards and explore their true nature as well as learn the tools to assist others.
A couple of years ago, Marcela Mota went through, what she believes is the biggest shift a woman can go through in a lifetime, as she became a mom to a beautiful baby boy, called Ocean.
In 2019, Marcela co-founded the 5 Elements Wisdom Academy that bridges ancient wisdom with modern science to provide tools for the contemporary men and women to create a life filled with purpose, joy and optimal health.
Today she is still learning how to accommodate her gypsy soul with her new mama reality, as she travels with her little family sharing this fascinating and transformative practice of Yoga around the world.
