Along with holding a degree in Psychology, Mauro is a trained chef and has spent a lifetime working, in all capacities, in the hospitality industry. Mauro’s first introduction to yoga came while he was living in Santa Monica. The stress and hectic lifestyle that he was leading at the time sent him in search of something that might help mend his body and ease his mind. The first time he walked into a Modo Yoga studio, he knew he had found it. From the first class he knew he had found his place in the universe and resolved to one day teach others and help them find their path. Mauro completed his Modo Yoga Teacher Training in Nicaragua 2017, Modo flow in 2018, and has also completed 2 Yin training’s.
“I fell in love with Modo, with the way that it opens up the body. But more than the physical aspects of Modo, I fell in love with what Modo is and all that it stands for. With the pillars and most importantly with the greatest yoga community out there. Modo will always be my first love, but recently I have also fallen in love with the Yin practice. Yin teaches us to find balance for our Yang energy, to let go, to surrender, to embrace time and change. It has a lot to teach us not only about our body but also many lessons about life.”
