Namaste dear one, It’s wonderful to meet you here!
I am a Traveller yoga teacher, ayurveda massage therapist, web developer, hobby photographer, and environmentalist. Based in Bremen, Germany since 2003, I have been teaching yoga for the last twelve years. My classes and workshops are guided by the two yoga teacher training courses I have completed, numerous intensive courses, and countless hours of self-practice.
Originally from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, I have been studying and practicing yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda in India, Nepal, and various countries in European since 2008. For the last decade, I have spent most of my time in India, Nepal, and Southeast Asia, deepening my knowledge and enhancing my practices. This journey led me to explore ancient traditions and Indian epistemology to further my understanding and awakening.
I m a lover of the ocean, a father of two, and also involved in environment protection and plastic recycling as a way to express my gratitude for the sacred and divine mother nature.
More than just “Yoga”
I teach Hatha Yoga with a focus on self-development and high performance. To me, challenge, effort, and adversity are the driving forces that push us forward, not the other way around. By committing yourself to your highest self, you can accomplish anything you set your mind to, and Yoga can be a powerful tool to help you achieve your goals.
During my teacher training courses, I learned the basics of Ayurveda and Naturopathy, and I have incorporated these principles into my Yoga teachings through special classes and workshops. This led me to develop my own unique approach to Hatha Yoga, which I call “Hatha-Yoga & the 5 Basics“. This approach is based on the five elements that make up the human body and mind, and I believe it can help individuals achieve greater physical, mental, and emotional balance.”
a little bit about my Yoga history
My love for the science and art of Yoga started to blossom in the summer of 2008. After attending some Hatha-Yoga classes and reading books on the subject, I realized that Yoga was not just an exercise, but a way of life that resonated with me deeply. The philosophy and history of Yoga fascinated me, and I quickly fell in love with it. This passion led to frequent and intensive practice.
The consequence was started to spend, after 2015, more than half of each year in India, where I have had some of my most profound Yoga experiences. I have also had the opportunity to visit other countries in Asia, including Nepal, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Vietnam. Believe it or not, all those places have a direct relation to the history of Yoga and its sources, which is the Tantra.
I am passionate about more than just Yoga – I also enjoy photography and movies. During my Yoga journey in India, I met two Siberian travelers who invited me to a Photoshoot, which sparked my interest in taking pictures of people in Yoga postures too. Although Yoga is much more than just postures, I also love to practice and teach them. If you’re interested, I invite you to consider an Asana Photoshoot.
As I pursued higher levels of practice, I began attending meditation classes and Buddhist teachings. This helped me to understand the mind better and to apply this understanding in my daily practice and classes. The teachings of the Yogi we know as the Buddha, made me understand the essence of the Yogic path in a reasonable and logical way. You can find more details about this in my Blog.
Apart from teaching Yoga, I am also a web developer. If you need a website, online shop, or training to learn how to build it yourself, you can contact me. I designed this website myself, keeping it simple to communicate what I have to offer.
When I’m not teaching Yoga or developing websites, I m Upcycling Plastic based on the precious plastic platform. I enjoy cooking flavorful Ayurvedic dishes, meeting new people, and finding a balance between social interaction and taking time to introspection. I strive to make positive changes in my life and in the lives of others. Living a meaningful and making a difference in the world. Perhaps that is why teaching Yoga has become such an important part of my life, this is like having all in one.
Thanks for reading!
