I am João.

(Say it Je-wow)

Just one moment of grace can be the gateway to a lifetime of yoga practice. For me, that moment was witnessing the cleansing ritual of nauli (rolling of the internal organs) at the age of 17 with my first yoga teacher, Teresa Milanez. Since then, I have steeped myself in the interdisciplinary practices of asana, yoga philosophy, kirtan, acrobatics, and anatomy - - learning breath, awareness, strength, and alignment through many powerful modalities I found along the journey.


This curiosity led me to become certified in multiple lineages and methods of movement, mindfulness, and play - Hatha Yoga, AcroYoga, ThaiVedic Yoga, Swasthya Yoga, Yoga Therapy, Pilates. Through teaching classes, immersions, and trainings in Brazil, Argentina, California, France and Indonesia for the last 15 years, I remain as curious as I was that first day with my root teacher.
