Condor is a seasoned fitness and wellness professional with over 25 years of experience. Honing his leadership skills at luxury gyms like Equinox, he excelled as a top-tier trainer before rising to roles as Fitness Training Manager and Personal Training Manager in both New York City and Los Angeles.

Drawing from his diverse experiences and mentorships from esteemed shamans, Qigong masters, natural therapy healers, and yoga and meditation teachers, Condor seamlessly integrates his knowledge into his work as the manager of the Oasis Wellness Center at California State University, Northridge—a 16,000 square foot wellness facility boasting outdoor gardens, a labyrinth and rejuvenating services.

His passion for holistic well-being was ignited alongside his spiritual exploration, catalyzed by a chance encounter with a monk who gifted him a copy of the Bhagavad Gita during a layover abroad. With a deep-rooted connection to nature and mysticism stemming from his Colombian/Andean heritage, Condor's approach to healing merges South American and North American shamanism, utilizing tools such as Shamanic Breathwork, Emotional Integration, Soul Recovery and plant medicine to facilitate transformative healing journeys.

Certified in various holistic modalities, Condor extends his expertise to the corporate sphere as a wellness and shamanic coach, helping organizations foster healthy and productive work environments. He is also a dynamic presenter, offering enlightening presentations on decolonizing wellness, highlighting indigenous culture's profound contributions to holistic well-being, stress reduction and the medicine wheel.
