«I have always enjoyed physical exercise, but 15 years ago I was diagnosed with several herniated discs and was unable to practice much of the activity that gave me pleasure. The orthopaedist who accompanied me was peremptory: “You have to practice yoga or Pilates regularly for the rest of your life!”
At the time I opted for the easy way: drugs and put up with the pain. I did not believe that the practice of yoga or Pilates could make a difference.
Five years after the diagnosis, my brother was already teaching yoga, and after several acute crises and a few moments of physical disability, I decided to try a class. It was love at first class! I loved the feeling of effort and overcoming and, above all, the immediate well-being it gave me. I stopped having constant pain, crippling crises and abolished painkillers. Today I do not live without my practice, which has given me quality of life and helps me to control my body and mind.»
«Working with Pedro has completely changed my practice. I had been doing yoga for over ten years when I met Pedro – which means I did the sequences and felt pretty good about them.
When I started private lessons with Pedro, he challenged me to the most basis asanas, which I already took for granted. It prompted me to truly perceive every movement and breath. Starting to wake up deep muscles that had been dormant for a long time. My practice – and body – have developed in a way that never happened.
Fortunately, Pedro has a great sense of humour. Even when my muscles are shaking and I am silently cursing everything I am told, we can laugh at the end.
In group classes, Pedro does an excellent job of challenging everyone present, regardless of their different levels of experience. Each class is different – nothing repetitive or boring – which challenges us and demands our full attention.
Finally, what distinguishes Pedro is his deep knowledge of the body. He can explain why each position is made in a certain way; It challenges us to ensure that every deep muscle is activated; and is deeply committed to ensuring that his students protect their body in the long run. Honestly, I have never worked with a better Yoga teacher.»
