What got you into yoga?
I was challenged by my neighbor to go with him to try a class. After class, I realized what a great experience it was to my stiff body, and that my mind felt really quiet.
What is yoga to you?
A path to self-knowledge.
How do you practise sustainability or social awareness?
I try to apply the "3 R´s policy": reduce, re-use and recycle.
Regarding social awareness, I do my best to listen, help and be open to others needs.
What do you love about the Azores?
The wild nature.
What are you grateful for today?
To the universe! That brought Yoga to my life, and helped me to be aware of who I am, and be a better human being so i can better serve others.
