Yoga crossed João’s path in 1999 and this love-at-first-site passion turned into a more serious relationship in late 2001, when he started teaching in Rio de Janeiro. In 2010, he traveled to India and completed the Advanced Teachers Training Course at Kaivalyadhama Yoga Institute, India and 2 years later he moved to the US. He's now based in Santa Rosa, California, focused on coaching custom Hatha Yoga routines from an Ayurvedic perspective. He also develops programs aimed at improving worksite wellness and researches the use of multimediatic aids in Yoga teaching, having developed an online teaching plataform (check out his website
) and instructional videos.
AcroYoga was a pleasent discovery in 2009, when he experienced his first and unforgettable flight, and never stopped playing since then. Driven by the need to share this lovely feeling with other people, in 2011 he took the AcroYoga Montreal TTC and started teaching classes and workshops in several towns of Brazil, Argentina and US during 2012.
Stay tuned for classes, workshops and jams in Northern California!
