MARIELA LUZMINA – is a creator, holistic entrepreneur, creative director, writer, researcher, and business administrator. Her work merges the intersections between embodied movement practices, psychosomatic performance, arts, food synergy, nutrition, and ecopsychology in a world where she perceives nature, wellness and elevated states of consciousness help heal the vibration of oneself and the collective.
With a Master’s degree in Performance Studies focused on Somatics and Experiential Anatomy from Naropa University – Colorado, along with a BA in Humanities, and extensive research on Ecopsychology; Mariela developed a passion for creating Holistic Experiences:,
“My holistic journey started twenty years ago when, by merging arts, sports, and science, I was able to address generational trauma. I deepened my practice while pursuing my Master’s degree at the buddhist-inspired Naropa University.
While studying, I suffered an accident that required surgeries and plenty of time for healing. I became my own subject study and my body became its own pharmacy. I learned that healing is composed of many layers that need to be integrated including physically, psychologically, and spiritually. We can access them naturally, without the need for long-term medications. Movement is Life, and it led me to an intimate search for self healing, and deeper states of awareness.
Body-mind-spirit, holistic arts, nutrition, along with creativity and elevated states of consciousness, play a beautiful part on our thriving wellness… My mission is to be a part of that path, for myself, and for the community.”
Mariela trained in somatics and kinesthetic movement; focusing on creating movement-based performance work from a psychosomatic standpoint. Along with experiential anatomy, the therapeutic and artistic potential of vocal expression (Alfred Wolfsohn Voice Research Center, Roy Hart Theater), active imagination (Carl Jung), mindful practices, meditation, and mindful nutrition, she was able to encompass the healing journey from a multitude of lenses. She explored the embodied patterns and the innate intelligence of the body. Mariela also worked as an apprentice and volunteer in Biodynamics and organic farming at EarthStar Farm, an organic and medicinal farm in Boulder. Also spent some time in the Putumayo Jungle, expanding her research on medicinal plants in the area.
In a conscious attempt to attune her ideas to a wider audience, she trained and worked in screenplay writing in Madrid, Spain. She has written the first drafts for a TV Series and a feature film. Mariela has also participated with various ensembles –in Puerto Rico, the USA, Ecuador, and Brazil– by writing, performing, directing, and facilitating workshops, mostly for at-risk communities.
Mariela also has a passion –and years of expertise– branding and developing creative ideas for new businesses in the food industry; ultimately co-founding and administrating a Bistro and Coffee Bar which is filled with art, creative ambiance, inventive recipes, and a strong sense of community building. Mariela has also worked as a writer for local magazines, as a copywriter and concept-creator for Marketing Arts Inc., and for production in the film industry. As a writer, she has won first prize in literary contests, and her works have been published in various Anthologies.
As a creator, she believes in building new paradigms of health-oriented humanity. Currently, she lives in Puerto Rico designing a new project that aspires to become a holistic business model, having resonance nationally and internationally.
Mariela is a visionary woman who, with passion and depth, strives to be creative and innovative in every endeavor she is part of.
