Yoga found Ricardo twelve year ago. He use to work next door to a yoga studio and one day, intrigued by the sound of students chanting the mantra Om, he stepped in to find out what was going on… As the old saying goes, “curiosity killed the cat”. He attended his first class and in his own words: “It was a humbling experience!” He persisted and soon started experiencing the physical and mental benefits of the practice. As a result, he developed a strong and lasting relationship with yoga and meditation.
A passionate and dedicate student of yoga philosophy, Ricardo believes yoga is for everybody. With a background in martial arts, his classes are dynamic, challenging and invigorating with a deep spiritual foundation inspired by nature. Been a long time surfer and diver, he places a strong emphasis on breathing technics. Through breath and movement, his classes aim to build a bridge between traditional and modern practices.
Outside the mat Ricardo shares his time between his career as an Architect and his love for the sea.
