At the age of 21 he started flirting with yoga, casually joining classes, becoming aware of different styles of asana practice, unconvinced and without really committing. The need to link spiritual practice with body work seemed however important. A couple of years later when he was living in Berlin he began to practice acrobatics, contact improvisation and at this time discovered Ashtanga yoga.
The need to follow the path of yoga then became unquestionable. In Ashtanga, the link between the philosophy and practice was obvious and the discipline fundamental. At that point he had just finished his studies in Music Production and Audio engineering, and decided to go to India to be closer to the roots of yoga. He spent the first couple of months in Rishikesh studying under Yogi Kamal Singh and Sunil Sharma and the next months traveling through India, continuing practicing Ashtanga yoga and Vipassana Meditation in the tradition of Saya Gyi U Ba Khin.
In Tulum on the Caribbean coast he had the opportunity to start teaching regularly. He taught daily Vinyasa classes as well as led a 6 days per week Ashtanga Mysore style program and after 1 year organized his first retreat.
Life led him to South East Asia where he completed trainings in Thai Massage with Pichest Boonthumme and Ashtanga yoga with Andrea Drottholm, Kirsten Berg and Iain Grysak. During this time, he also opened a space for yoga in Chiang Mai Thailand, and taught classes as well as facilitated retreats in France, Swizerland and Sri Lanka where he continues to teach every year. In 2015 he went to continue his studies in India.
He knew going to Mysore and practicing with Sharath Jois at KPJAYI was essential for him to understand the roots of the Ashtnaga lineage since then continues to return every year.
He believes the guidance of a good teacher and particularly a consistent dedication to a particular practice is fundamental for authentic personal growth on the path of yoga. But it is perhaps more important to learn how to look inside ourselves to go into deeper levels of self-study and awareness.
In the end it is our own consistent practice and dedication that will lead us forward, that will teach us to become kinder, more aware and attentive, and help us lead our lives in a mindful way.
