Instructor Biography

Myriam Zuzs, Udemy instructor, Spiritual Advisor

Biografia en espanol mas abajo.

From a very early age Myriam knew that understanding the unseen was her strength...

Born in 1970 the successful Mexican-Canadian meditator and world traveller lives now in Toronto with her two beloved dogs enjoying the fruit of her many years of intensive meditation while balancing a busy lifestyle.

From a very early age Myriam knew that understanding the unseen was her strength. Having dropped out of University where she was studying International Relations she decided to actually experience international relations by joining her Guru in an ashram in India at age 22. She learned a lot about ashram life including the do's and don'ts. After volunteering full time for 8 years and and falling out with ashram life she returned to the West. Since then she has had the opportunity to work at the Mexican Consulate in Toronto, be the Guest Relations Manager of a 5 Diamonds Resort in the Mayan Riviera, worked on cruise ships where she continued to travel the world among other interesting jobs.  She also continued to lean more about the mind and spirit connection earning certificates as Yoga Teacher, Quantum Healing Hypnosis Practitioner, NLP Practitioner and Life Coach.

 She has now put together her experience doing TV and teaching to share the spiritual knowledge she has gained in all these years and help others in their spiritual quest.

Her courses have reached thousands of students and she has now decided to use all the profits from these courses to set up an Ashram in the West "... because we need more ashrams in the West."

Today Myriam strives to achieve a life that is balanced between her full time job, the projects and causes she feels passionately about and spending time with her energetic dogs Ben and Samantha... until she manages to be dedicated, full time, to her Ashram.


Desde muy chica Myriam se dio cuenta de que su punto fuerte era el descifrar lo invisible...

Nacida en 1970 esta exitosa meditadora y trotamundos Mexicano-Canadiense vive en Toronto con sus dos queridos perros disfrutando el fruto de sus tantos años de meditacion intensiva a la vez que trata de mantener el balance en su vida diaria.  

Desde muy chica Myriam se dio cuenta de que su punto fuerte era el descifrar lo invisible... Decidió dejar la Universidad donde estaba estudiando Relaciones Internacionales para vivir las relaciones internacionales yéndose a vivir al ashram de su Maestro, en la India, cuando acababa de cumplir 22 años.  Aprendió mucho sobre la vida en Asrhams, incluyendo los pro's y los contras.  Despues de haber hecho labor de voluntaria durante 8 años y haber tenido suficiente de la vida en ashrams regresó al Occidente.  Desde entonces ha tenido la oportunidad de trabajar en varios lugares entre los que se encuentra el Consulado de Mexico en Toronto, el Madarin Oriental resort de 5 diamantes en la Riviera Maya como Gerente de Guest Relations, así como en cruceros donde conoció más del mundo, entro otros trabajos interesantes.  También continuó aprendiendo sobre la conexión mente - espíritu y obtuvo certificados como maestra de Yoga, Especialista de Hipnosis para Sanación Quantum (regresión a vidas pasadas), Practicante de Programación Neuro Linguística, y Coach Personal.

 Ha decidido combinar su experiencia en Televisión y como maestra de idiomas para compartir la sabiduría espiritual que ha aprendido en todos estos años para ayudar a otros que están en su busqueda espiritual. 

Tiene ya miles de estudiantes en sus cursos y ha decidido usar todas las ganancias para establecer un ashram en el Occidente "... porque necesitamos más ashrams en el Occidente."  

Hoy en día Myriam se esfuerza por lograr una vida balanceada entre su trabajo de tiempo completo, sus proyectos y las causas que la apasionan y su alegres perros Ben y Samanta, hasta que logre dedicarse por completo a su Ashram.
