Rodrigo is a Brazilian Ironman triathlete who has participated in various competitions. But it was in Australia that his passion for the ancient physical, mental and spiritual discipline first started when he found himself practicing Bikram Yoga.
Introducing Yoga into his daily routine, Rodrigo decided to take a two-hundred hour Ashtanga Vinyasa and Hatha teacher training course in the city of Rishikesh, in Northern India at the foothills of the Himalayas. Back to Australia, he took a Yin Yoga teacher training course and a Reiki I and II Practitioner training course.
Rodrigo has been complementing his own skills by adding to his studies, Iyengar Yoga, which emphasises on detail, precision and alignment in the performance of yoga postures. His teaching approach also focuses on a variety of breathing techniques.
As Rodrigo is incredibly passionate about the philosophy of Yoga, he sees his goal as developing better self-knowledge using the ‘Truth force’ Satyagraha by Mahatma Gandhi. Finally, he wants everyone to experience the benefits and wisdom of Yoga and aims to help others achieve and better understand those benefits for themselves.
