Atmajeet or Gema Castro, Cuban by birth and actress by profession, fell into yoga in 2008 as part of the training for a theater play. In 2011 she migrated to Mexico and as any other immigrant, had no time but for work. Those circumstances led her to make a decision of "moving into a different world." Kundalini Yoga turned out to be the answer to her call, so Atmajeet studied Kundalini Yoga Level I and Kundalini Yoga for Conscious Pregnancy, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, with Arjan Kaur Khalsa at Sikh Center Mexico. Then she moved to Miami and took the 200 hours Hatha Vinyasa Teacher Training with Victoria Brunacci at Synergy Yoga Center, where she also met Mukti who opened the path for Thai Massage.
2017 marked a turning point in her life. Atmajeet completed her training as a Reiki Master, got licensed as a massage therapist, and became a mother. In 2019, she finally was able to travel to Thailand and become a Nuad Boran Instructor at the International Thai Massage School, ITM.
Convinced that life is a spiritual journey, Atmajeet has applied holistic yoga principles to daily life and she tries to share that experience in classes through the passion of singing mantras, meditation, and body work.
