Namaste, I’m Mirabelle D’Cunha
Experience expansion through delcious yogic breathwork, delicate self-enquiry playing 1-1 or in a nurturing community.
Through the wisdom from my own lived experience and lineaged teachings, I support committed yoga lovers, seekers of joy and compassion. Healing and clarity naturally unfold as you from the urgency and into deep trust and allowing.
Sadhana (daily spiritual practice)
is my daily bread
Pranayama (yogic breathwork)
is my addiction
is my gift and obsession
is my highest goal.
I was born to do this!
Born in Mumbai, yoga, spirituality, many religions and chaos were always around me. I was born into a catholic family, attended a Muslim school, learnt classical Indian (Hindu) dancing and lived 2 floors above a Sikh place of workship. All this both fascinated me and made me uncomfortable. Little did I know that all experiences would lead me to the portals of compassion
I always felt a kind of anxious buzz in my body-mind, as well as a trust that there was more to life. I felt energy and sensed things that no one could understand. I devoured books on the unknown, the rejected and the unthinkable. I battled depression and courted suicidal thoughts. I found dance. Dance was my space to sweat my prayers
….until I had a slipped disc at age 25, discovered I had congenital spinal anomalies and a slim chance of healing after surgery. I recalled the true story of an Indian Classical dancer who lost her foot and trained herself to dance with an artificial foot. I made my way to the Sivananda Ashram in the Himalayas and by pure grace, I had an incredible visceral experience of feeling my whole body and being vibrate like atoms expanding and diffusing at a rapid pace….it changed everything
Sadhana (daily spiritual practice) became my act of self-love. Healing unfolded with an inexplicable patience and self compassion.
