04 Feb Antonio
Driven by a relentless fascination for the ways in which subjective experiences can be communicated, Antonio has devotedly explored music, the fine arts, and nature, from a very early age. Having completed his university studies in New York, he returned to his native home in Chile to find, after several years of work in the film industry, that he craved for a more direct experience of reality and consciousness. Twelve years from his first class as a student, the practice of Yoga has had a deep impact in how he views life in general, transformed by a more subtle and powerful form of intelligence. Answering the call, he did his TTC in The Chilean Academy of Yoga, and began teaching full-time at some of the main yoga studios in Chile as well as participating as guest teacher in events such as Wanderlust. Following a quite intuitive combination of Vinyasa Flow, Iyengar, and Yin he has found a practice both challenging and therapeutic, where the use of verbal imagery plays an important role in eliciting responses to the practice of Asana, Pranayama, and Meditation. Time, study, and practice, have given him a new sense of balance, overcoming the consequences of accidents and surgeries, finding strength and peace. His motivation is to help others along the same path, which being similar or different, is certainly unique and unrepeatable. Antonio is a Yoga Alliance internationally certified yoga instructor at the E-RYT 200 level.
