João is an Andorra-born Yoga/Meditation teacher and Reiki healer devoted to his Dharma of helping others awaken to their Truth, to Love. Having suffered from depression since a young boy, his Yoga journeystarted in Portugal over 17 years ago when, upon observing an Asana practice, a seed was planted. He now calls it a moment of grace.
Always drawn to the esoteric and having learnt much from the Shamanic culture, it was only after having experienced the stillness and life-changing benefits of the Yogic lifestyle in such a dynamic city, that he travelled to the sacred surroundings of Tiruvannamalai, India where he qualified to teach Hatha Yoga as an apprentice of Yogi Ashokananda, still his devoted teacher.
Deepening his studies with Yogi he became a Meditation Teacher. He is also certified to teach Yin, Restorative and Yoga Nidra. Inspired by his Guru’s – Adyashanti – Satsang’s, João endeavors to re-member his students on enquiring the true meaning of Yoga as a holistic system.
