Wayo’s (Eduardo’s) first yoga class in March 2000, an Intermediate Hatha Flow, left him eager to explore more about the ancient tradition of Yoga. A few years later he took a 200-hour Hatha Teacher Training course where he encountered the Viniyoga teachings of TKV Desikachar. After teaching for some time, he took a 5-day Viniyoga course with Gary Kraftsow from the American Viniyoga Institute (AVI). He took the 500-hour Viniyoga Teacher Training course and learned the breadth, depth, creativity, value, and appropriate application, of the ancient tradition of Yoga, to day to day LIFE. From this training, Wayo has been a Lead Teacher in Hatha Teacher Training courses and a Co-Lead for Foundations of Yoga Therapy Teacher Training courses. He has worked therapeutically with low back issues, neck and shoulder issues and non-theraputic private lessons. He has mentored countless Teacher Training students for over 10 years.
Wayo believes Yoga is a system of wellness, balance, and wholeness (Shalom). In his Viniyoga classes, you will experience the connection of breath and movement to cultivate a sense of connection, wholeness, integration, and joy. Asana-s (poses), pranayama (seated breath work), mantra (vibrational sounds), and meditation (introspection moment) may be incorporated to create a particular yoga experience. Wayo will invite you to move the spine in all directions to discover a balance between fluidity and structural stability. There is space for rest, modifications and laughter. The practice is about bringing wellness, balance, and wholeness to YOU! This is an ancient tradition that gives us multiple keys to unlock our inner potential. There is no pressure on performance but an opportunity for cultivating a little more self-care. Experience the present and connection to yourself, the Yogic Teachings, and the community of yoga practitioners in the room. Shalom!
