Meet the Teacher

 

 

Esteban is an international, highly qualified yoga teacher. He is an economist, business administrator and has a masters degree in marketing. His two great passions of surf and yoga led him to connect to all elements of his life and dedicate himself fully to yoga. His classes are like riding a wave, entering into a lovely flow of creativity and allowing your heart to lead the way.

He is one of the creators of Krama Yoga, which is a style of Hatha Yoga (physical practice), that also embodies a strong philosophical aspect and devotion of the heart. Krama means ‘sequential order’; the synchronized movement of various asanas in order to reach a certain goal, which is the reason why his classes offer balance between biomechanics, wisdom and experience, giving an optimal flow of Prana (vital energy and inner fluids).

With over 20 years of practice and 16 years teaching classes, workshops and trainings, Esteban has built a supportive and inspiring community of teachers and has influenced students to focus on what they want in life, allowing them to stay committed to personal growth
