Life has been an incredible journey thus far and I look forward to sharing it with you.
I started teaching Capoeira, a Brazilian Martial Art in 2000. I got into Yoga to heal from my injuries in Capoeira and to explore meditation in movement. With Yoga I found Infinite Space to heal and to grow.
I began teaching Yoga as an infusion of asana, capoeira, meditation, energy work and sound healing. I called it Shine Yoga. My public classes and workshops draw from many traditions including Yoga, quantum physics, martial arts, energy work, meditation and sound. I work extensively with the Tibetan and Crystal singing bowls and you will often hear them in my classes and workshops. I currently run my own classes through the Shine Shack and facilitate workshops and teacher trainings globally. You can find me teaching public classes in vancouver at Semperviva Yoga, Yyoga and One Yoga.
Beyond teaching I have been a scientist studying the microbial worlds of bacteria, I have been an adventurer traveling the entire length of the Amazon river many times, became an avid surfer and most of all, through it all, remembered we are all connected:
