Meet your host


João Paulo Pereira 

Founder of BASA Yoga

Self-love greetings. My 'first date' with healing practices was around age 10, when my mother introduced me to a Reiki-like Japanese energy healing practice called Johrei.  Still in my early teens, I took a NPL (Neuro-linguistic programming) course with the Silva Method.


It wasn't until decades later, with many years of yoga teaching, embodiment, and meditative practices under my belt, that I realized the connection between my life's path and those almost forgotten experiences of connecting with Spirit, channeling of healing energy, and smart regulation of the mind.

Today, in my mobility rehab & prehab practice, I combine the wisdom of Pilates & Yoga therapy to help folks understand pain as a compass to good health and overcome it. In my Thai massage, Tok Sen and water therapy (Aguahara) offerings, I humbly let my hands be guided by the union of intuition and bio-mechanic knowledge.

I invite you to join me in inhabit our temples.  The ones made of flesh, bone, and consciousness.  And I hope we are as kind to it as we are to our loved ones.  Kind enough to give ourselves the gift of healing touch. And take it on as a practice, a practice of self-love. This is my prayer for us.  Will you join me?
