But was in Portugal that the true meaning of yoga unfolded before me. In 2018 I finished my first course of one year of yoga teachers, certified by the Yoga Alliance, and immediatelly I started 2 more years of study of yoga and vedānta with the teacher Miguel Homem. This course also gave me the opportunity of learning with the teachers Tomás Zorzo, Pedro Kupfer and Simão Monteiro and vedānta with the teacher Gloria Arieira
I continue to study vedānta with Miguel Homem.
I apreciate the astanga dynamic that is part of my daily practice. Since 2019 I started 2 years of study in astanga e pranayama with the teacher Kia Naddermier in Paris.
My Hatha yoga classes are dynamic and a reflexion of traditional disciplines - Hatha, Iyengar and Aṣṭaṅga together with the influence of some modern techniques, and meditation moments, reflection and pranayama, always adapted to the capabilities of each student.
In Yoga and meditation I found answers for a more meaningful and consciencious life.
