About Mauricio Victorica:
Born in México, D.F. in 1972, Mauricio began studying yoga in 1997. In 2003 he discovered the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga system as a form of moving meditation. After several years of sustained practice and studies, Mauricio realised that Ashtanga Yoga should be learned as a life long practice, rather than racing after postures or series. Mauricio believes that all difficult asanas and vinyasas are just there to remind us of the love and calmness that each of us holds within, in spite of external conditions. Since 2005 Mauricio has been travelling to Mysore, India, every year in order to continue his studies at KPJAYI. (K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute). As of 2007, he has been been traveling to various countries, such as Austria, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, México, Costa Rica, Chile, Perú and Philippines, in order to teach Mysore Programs and share the practice with students the world over.

About Barbara Macias:

I was born in México City, and in 2006 I started exploring different styles of Hatha Yoga, especially Iyengar Yoga. I was fortunate to personally study with Dona Holleman, visiting her in 2007. My interest and curiosity in the practice led me to Mysore, India in 2008, where I was able to further deepen my practice at the K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Institute. Since then, I’ve kept visiting this magical country in search of new inspirations and experiences. Eventually, moving to Berlin gave me the great opportunity to start teaching at the Yoga school Berlin in 2010.

I’m a dedicated student and as a teacher truly committed to transmitting more than a physical experience of Yoga. My intention is to share and honestly teach an authentic Yoga method which may further establish the existing but forgotten relationship to your inner self, guiding you to accept & observe the subtle transformation of life.

I feel gratitude for inspiring teachers such as Rolf Naujokat, Emil Wendel, Matthew Vollmer and Carla Vollmer.
