Bio


A Mindfulness Coach and Yoga Teacher, I have cultivated practices for three decades that focus on consciousness, the body, as well as of the emotions, mind and spirit. When I met my spiritual teacher at 16, I received an initiation that forever changed my perception and awareness. The impact was so powerful that from then on I committed myself to the study and practice of Tantric Yoga. I continue to deepen my inner journey through daily practice, and extended residence in ashrams in New York and India. I find immense fulfillment in helping others to shift their awareness from suffering to states of calm and contentment.

Teachers & influences

I am an E-RYT 500 Teacher with 18 years of experience teaching Anusara Yoga and Meditation. In 2002 I began teaching yoga. I have taken numerous teacher´s trainings of hatha yoga in New York, Argentina and India, in the Anusara® style with many anusara teachers, to mention a few: John Friend (founder of Anusara® Yoga style), Jayendra Henley, Jordan Bloom, Susana Garcia and BJ Galvan, managing to have more than 5 immersions (5 days intensive training in philosophy and technique of alignment of hatha yoga), totaling more than 500 hours of training, which in time has made him recipient of the third level of certification the Anusara School of Yoga offers:  Anusara® Certified teacher with 17 years of teaching experience 

"Anusara yoga is a nationally Registered Yoga School through Yoga Alliance.   Anusara yoga certification is among the most professional and demanding in the industry of yoga teaching. All certified Anusara yoga teachers complete several years of study, go through multiple teacher training courses, and teach professionally for at least four years, before formally entering the certification process.”


 Meditation

 In the area of meditation, I began my practice in 1991 guided by my spiritual teacher from india, belonging primarily to the Tantric Kashmir Shaivite tradition.  I have also studied with Sally Kempton and several other friends swamis (monks) that formed my view on the practice. The following teachers have greatly influenced my teaching style in the recent years: Eckhart Tolle, Adyashanti, Douglas Brooks (Rajanaka Tantra), Christopher Wallis  and Jonathan Foust (from the mindfulness school)

 

Ayurveda Studies

I have been deeply intrigued with the sister tradition of yoga, Ayurveda. I found in this system the ancient wisdom of bringing balance to your body and life by understanding the main constituents of life and how to maintain harmony between them. To learn to improve my health and digestion I've also studied with a few renown Ayurvedic Teachers, In india, in the year 2000 I took lectutres with Pankaj Naram founder of AyuShkati  immersing myself in a healing process of a month: panchakarma cleansing program,  years latter, 2008  took an immersion in the main tenants of Ayurveda with Vasant Lad, from the Ayurvedic Institute. Also my understanding of the discipline has been highly influenced by the writings of Robert Svoboda and Georg A. Feuerstein.

 

Coaching Studies

With the intention of strengthening my teaching´s tools, in 2013 I did a master in Ontological Coaching at the Center for the Study of Professional Coaching, with Ivonne Hidalgo, Aida Hidalgo Araujo and Rainier. Later in 2019 I graduated as Accompanist in  Bioneuroemotion® (BNE) which is a new method that has integrated different scientific, philosophical and humanist disciplines to help you understand the origin of your emotional conflicts and improve your wellbeing.
