Hello! I am Rodrigo, a certified yoga teacher, and martial artist, holding a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, which I have been teaching since 2010 (and training my whole life!). While working on obtaining a Master’s degree in engineering here in Berlin, I also became attracted to the path of yoga, seeking a deeper philosophical knowledge about life. My work as an engineer has not been fulfilling and my master studies have not being meaningful, but my exposure to yoga and other philosophical systems lead me to explore new ways of thinking. After taking a sabbatical year in 2015, hiking in the mountains of South America, I realized how everything is interconnected and nowadays I use the perfect combination of Jiu-Jitsu and yoga as tools to express some of my ideas. I am very open-minded towards different possibilities for inner growth, and I am continuously studying and experiencing new aspects of reality. Through the holistic approach to yoga and martial arts and my knowledge engineering (yes, I decided to stop fixing machines and focusing on more complex systems - like humans : ) I can be able to share my skills and promote wellbeing. I see the influence these teachings and experiences have had on my own life and I am at service to help others to also benefit from them.
