* Trauma and energy informed approach to holistic and visual arts practices.
* Conscious photography shoots for you to see yourself or your mindful business with more clarity.
* Creation of sacred space, an atmosphere to face and process life situations in need of delicate attention.
* A growing library focusing on the visual arts and holistic practices available for study on location.
* The opportunity to breathe and work through personal matters in the private setting of our tiny meditation room.

* A kind and empathic community committed to facing their inner worlds and choosing to build peace from within.
in this unique space, you won’t only come for a session or workshop. You enter the world of Natalia’s art and photography studio and experience her artistic practice. During creativity workshops, you’ll also tune into the artist within you; a connection we hope you’ll maintain for the rest of your life.
Located Virtually, Based in Miami
and consciously designed for slowing down and reconnecting with your breath and the innate creativity we all possess, Heart in Brain Studios is a place to relax, create, and just BE. We look forward to guiding you through practice that inspires you to return to your heart center, create from within, and know what it means to be true to YOU.
Natalia’s love and respect
for the visual arts, yoga, ancient spirituality, and mother nature merge here, encouraging a harmonious environment for personal growth and development. Her experience as a visual artist, photographer, educator, holistic practitioner, and martial artist inform all of her offerings.
“My most profound education, though, has come from a decades-long process of transforming my life from that of a depressed, alcoholic, suicidal, panic attack driven insomiac to a healthy, joyful, loving version of myself. It is my own visual and holistic arts practice that guided me from internal chaos and darkness to the source of light within my heart. My intuition never failed me and spiritual guidance accompanied me every step of the way.
As a survivor of early childhood sexual violence, I know how repressed memories and trauma distort our perception of ourselves and others and how it feels to have had the safety of my body stolen from me, and then reclaimed. Scattered roots from the Caribbean, the Andes, Southern Europe, and being raised in Miami, FL as a first generation immigrant, means that feeling at home on stolen land governed by people who do not honor me and so many because of our cultures has been a life-long challenge.
The process involved in regaining trust and safety within our internal and external worlds takes time and devotion. Part of this process is recognizing that as complex, multi-dimensional beings we often fall on differents points along the power spectrum and must be sincere with ourselves for healing to occur on all levels.
With the deepest sense of gratitude for life, I am humbled to share with you what I’ve learned through Self study and support you as you unveil your own layers and choose what is right for you.
The road may seem long and winding, but always remember: your breath knows the way back home to your heart.”
with Love always,
This is an anti-racist space. No exceptions.
