Marcela Scarpellini (1985) was born and grew up in Venezuela. She studied law in Caracas and got her LLM in Environmental Law from Stockholm University. Besides teaching yoga and holding space for Darua, she currently works as a death and play doula and is a poet. Through her works, she is concerned with connecting the dark and the light, by bringing awareness to those parts of us that may be asleep or afraid, to those shy parts of us keen to explore and play. She relishes turning places of fear into places of wonder and joy.
