ABOUT KES CARDOSO:
Sound Alchemist, Yogi & Life Designer
“Always be grateful and strive to create more beauty;
for the path we walk is sacred,
whether we are moving through asanas or pixels.”
From a young age, Kesia Cardoso has embarked on self-discovery while developing over the years her own life alchemy.
Self-started and a pilgrim since childhood, she has dedicated her life to photography and design as artistic expression, music and sound resonance as a path of inner evolution, yoga and meditation as a way of building harmony, as well as the practice of natural and universal spirituality and the studies of the quantum universe for healing and co-creating.
A citizen of the world, originally from Brazil carrying Amazonian and European roots, Kes learned much of what she knows in her own community and cultural background, as well as through training with leaders and organisations all over the world. Kes has been traveling the world since the year of 2000 with the focus on learning and inspiring others to live a compassionate, grounded and conscious life.
Having lived and studied in South America, USA, Canada, Europe, UK, she currently resides and works in the South of France, in Nice, at the edge of the Mediterranean Sea.
After some years of geek life, as an undercover hippie, producing media content and working in the Communications and Creative Industries, Kes unfolded a new career path and trained as a Kundalini Yoga instructor in Brazil and in Paris by the 3HO organisation according to the teachings of Yogi Bhajan. Through time, as a student and a teacher, she has found her own adaptation and expression of this beautiful and powerful practice that can help develop a stable mind, calm the spirit and increase courage to become our true-self.
After Kes found the path of Kundalini Yoga, she soon became very focused on the benefits of mantra and sound vibration, as well as how these tools can help heal both our body and heart, release past traumas, physical pain and ignite deep relaxation that leads to effective healing of body and mind.
With a past in musical performance and production, she dove into the world of Sound Healing Therapy, pursuing her diploma at the Sound Healing Academy in Dublin Ireland. Her studies and practice have continued to evolve towards the therapeutic and Taoist philosophy (Chinese shamanism) culminating with her training in Yin Yoga according to the method of Biff Mithoefer (United States) and Cecile Roubaud (France). Currently, after conqueering a healthy balance between her geek and hippie passions, Kes continues to develop and evolve her yogic, musical and design path through OcaYoga and OcaPixels.
