Your Guides

Michael Stasko

Michael Stasko was born and raised in Miami, Florida. He earned a master’s degree in aerospace engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology as a NASA research fellow. Later, while working as an analyst in spacecraft control, Michael was deeply moved by a series of personal insights and spiritual experiences that prompted him to leave his career and spend the next 10 years living in South India, serving his spiritual mentor, Her Holiness Amma Sri Karunamayi.

From 2010-2019,¬†Michael lived in an ashram and dedicated his life to service and spirituality‚ÄĒdeepening his practice of meditation, philosophy, breath-work and Sanskrit chanting. In 2019, he moved back to Miami where he offers coaching on spiritual growth, conscious relationships and integration. Michael also teaches meditation, Sanskrit chanting and yogic philosophy (both in person and online).

Paola Cruz

Paola Cruz was born and raised in Honduras. In 2007, Paola's parents sent her to University in USA. She studied Marketing and Merchandising and later on completed another degree as a Jewelry Designer in NYC. In 2014, after meditating for two years, she awakened to a deep sense of spirituality after realizing that a career in jewelry was not fulfilling for her. This is when she began to travel extensively and explore different Spiritual paths.

In 2018 she had a realization during meditation and knew her purpose was to share the ancient teachings of Yoga. Paola is now a 700HR E-RYT Yoga, Meditation Guide and Mindfulness Therapist. She studies in India under Traditional Yoga Masters, in Vedic Ashrams, and Yoga Philosophy Schools.

She lives her life according to Yogic principles and is commited to helping students cultivate Higher Awareness through private classes, events, retreats, and coaching programs. She has been invited to teach at International Yoga Congresses, Festivals, and offers workshops and collaborations to companies such as DHL, Nestle, Avon, Buick, Wellness Apps and many world renowned boutique hotels worldwide.
