About Ricardo:

It all started through contact and interaction with nature. I was always an active child, who preferred to be outside instead of playing video games. Gradually I started to like sports, martial arts and naturally developed a concern about health, at that time still very much related to physical shape.

Later, I graduated in administration, worked in a multinational and in the financial market and gradually realized that the search there would not provide what my heart needed. I resigned and went to study in California, where I started a specialization in the financial sector, until I understood that there was no point in moving to another country carrying the same problems in my suitcase and repeating the same actions.

I switched courses and decided to study design and photography, which at that moment was considered an act of madness. The process of trying to live a new life, which had barely begun and already had an expiration date, caused me some uneasiness, and it was the practice of physical activities that helped me to maintain my sanity. This is how the connection between physical and mental health became clear to me, empirically and practically. After that understanding, my curiosity led me to explore new possibilities, improving practice formats that offered both body and mental results simultaneously and allowing new perceptions about life to be accessed.

It was then that a great challenge brought Yoga into my life, initially as a way to solve a painful equation in relation to my professional future, but it didn’t take long to realize that that moment would represent the beginning of my life again. Since then, there have been 2 formations, the first in Hatha and the second in Ashtanga Vinyasa Based. Some holistic courses in energy healing, alternative food and more recently the study of Vedanta. I carried out some projects in the wellness area in Europe and Asia, teaching practices and sharing my understanding of conscious consumption and the impact of our choices on our lives.

I share what comes to me through courses and immersions in places of connection throughout Brazil and the world. With humility and devotion, I continue in search of knowledge that liberates and alleviates our journey, seeking to gradually eliminate the ignorance that imprisons and separates us. 

We go together. 

We are one.
