What moves me?
I am a curious human being.
Curious about how we are made and how we function.
I love to study and to search, this is my scientific side.
I love to create and to share, that is why I teach and write.
I love to make jokes and create images that develop the imagination and open doors in the mind to new possibilities.
I find pleasure exploring the body, our vehicle during our life-time.
To take care and to try to make the best use of our potential.
That is why I do yoga.
I am Iyengar yoga certified yoga teacher. Iyengar yoga method is based on the teachings of BKS Iyengar (1918-2014), Indian master that has developed the techniques of yoga in an amazing way. Nevertheless, Mr Iyengar said once that the only person that could practice Iyengar yoga was him, because he only is Iyengar.
So, what I practice and teach is a result of what I received from many Iyengar yoga teachers, but many other things as well. Dancing, somatics, anatomy, many spiritual and psychology books, Buddhist teachings, … I take this opportunity to thank them all.
I share here some names and links:
