I (Valentina Negri) was born in 1979 within the Italian borders. I have formal degrees in accounting and economy, but never worked in either field. However, I feel that this knowledge has equipped me with the ability to work independently and create my own salary. I speak four languages and have lived many lives. These are the fruits of travel combined with a lot of talking, listening, and sharing experiences with thousands of other people from all over the world. Through traveling, I also re-discovered my childhood passion: horses. I began globetrotting with sport horses and eventually landed in Shangay, where my son Alex was conceived. In the six years that have passed since that day, my life has drastically changed, several times. Everything spun so fast that I didn’t have time to stop and meditate. Then finally, about a year ago, I went back to Costa Rica for a short visit. My plan was to head to Seattle afterwards and put down some roots. During my visit here I took my first yoga class on a rainy tropical day, and my life changed course forever, and we never left Costa Rica again.
The language of the universe is written between the words luck and coincidence. This is the story of my life.
