I love yoga. I believe yoga can enrich everyone’s life. It certainly has enriched mine, or rather, it has changed mine completely.
When I came into contact with yoga 20 years ago, I was on a search for self-realization, and I knew it would not be sufficient to simply read books. Yoga has not only answered my questions about myself and this world through its profound philosophy, but it has essentially helped me to find my inner space of peace and harmony, and to reconnect to my natural abilities of intuition and wisdom. And besides, yoga has given me so much joy and energy, it has completely revitalized my body.
Curiosity and the desire to understand the authentic tradition of yoga has led to many trips to India and the study of its ancient scriptures. Later, I became a certified yoga instructor by attending a 4-years teacher training in the Satyananda Yoga tradition, which, in my opinion, offers an excellent combination of the spiritual and physical aspects of yoga. Yoga’s wisdom and amazing tools need to be shared with the world!
Since I was very young I always had the need to travel and experience other cultures and traditions.
It was in 1993 when I came to India for the first time, and I definitely felt in love with its ancient wisdom. It was an intense trip and the beginning of a long inner transformational process.
After several years practicing yoga in different schools and styles (Ramiro Calle, Sivananda, Iyengar, etc) I took a two-years teacher training in Madrid. With a very profound need of going deeper into yoga I gave up my job and I spend several years living in an ashram. Immersed in the practices of bhakti yoga, I also studied the philosophy and the ancient scriptures of India.
After that I took another four-years teacher training in the Satyananda Yoga tradition, other specialization courses in yoga therapy and yoga for kids, too. In recent years I took a training to go even deeper into yoga (Sadhana Sintesis), as well as other courses with Swami Digambar (Danilo Hernandez), disciple of Swami Satyananda to whom I feel very grateful for being my inspiration from the beginning in this path.
I am dedicating my life to share this process which is my passion and in which I continue evolving and learning. I will never be able to express how grateful I am to yoga and to all the masters that I have met, who inspired me and guided me on this journey. I also feel very grateful to my family and to each and everyone of my students, because they are the ones who make me grow.
