international guest teacher / authorized level 2 by KPJAYI
The inner explorative nature of yoga philosophy and meditation practice got Mauricio attracted to it in 1997. The practice of Hatha yoga oriented to meditation helped him to heal the consequences of an ignored childhood broken coccyx which kept the lumbar region with pain and restricted mobility.
Meanwhile working In graphic design and advertising for 10 years in 2003 he discovered the meditation in movement of the ashtanga vinyasa yoga system. In 2005 he started travelling almost yearly to the Ashtanga yoga institute (KPJAYI) in Mysore India to study with the late Patthabi Jois, Saraswati and Sharath Jois.
After several years of sustained practice and studies he realized that Ashtanga yoga should be shared as a life long practice not like a race for postures or series and that all difficult asanas and vinyasas are there to remember us the love and calmness that abide inside us despite of any external situation.
