Growing up, he gradually develops an awareness of physical health and finds inspiration and passion in body movements.

He aims to share what he learned in his own journey, all the benefits of spiritual life, and how to find a balance between the world outside and the world inside through systematic techniques of relaxation and meditation, alongside the understanding of the body through yoga anatomy, and asana sessions.
