Yoga entered my life around 2004. I followed different yoga styles (Iyengar, Sivananda, Vinyasa, Yin and of course pre-natal yoga). At the beginning it simply complemented my capoeira and dance improvisation practices. Once I discovered the healing power of yoga and that it allowed me to extend and develop myself in different ways, I stuck to the path. It took me quite a while though, before I decided to become an instructor myself.
After finishing a Vinyasa and soon afterwards a restorative, nidra and a yin teacher training, I immediately started teaching. I am utterly grateful to my nidra and restorative teacher who opened this door for me. Teaching made me face big challenges in myself, and it allowed me to grow, develop and transform beyond my expectation.
Yoga has become part of my life, it helps me to find and build strength and balance in myself. It is my refuge and my resource, my joy and my healing. It is a great pleasure to share with others what I have learned and experienced over the years. My heart glows whenever I can be service to the well-being of fellow yogis and I can help them finding their way back home into their body and heart.
Picking up the handpan half a year ago allowed me to add an extra dimension to the process. Live music and sound healing techniques, just as well the aroma of essential oils, have become integral part of my classes.
My learning never stops on this path and I feel to be just the same humble yogi when I first stepped on the mat.
