“I believe the ancient yoga philosophies are very valuable in the modern world. They prepare us to gracefully integrate all aspects of our being, one day and one experience at the time, to become the best version of ourselves.”
Victor took his first yoga class at the age of 16 on a beach of Brazil where his cousin was running a yoga centre. From this day on, he wholeheartedly dedicated himself to this spiritual path and started to teach yoga at the age of 18. His deep compassionate nature manifested by teaching yoga not only in various yoga studios and private classes around his home town of São Paulo, but also in the favelas hoping to inspire a sense of inner peace and empower young people through the experience of asanas, pranayamas and meditation.
Victor completed a 500 hrs training with yoga alliance and studied hundreds more hours with various teachers from Brazil, India, Chile and Australia whom have brought him a rich knowledge and expertise on diverse type of yoga lineage. He has learnt about yoga therapy, ashtanga, sattva, hatha, vinyasa, aerial yoga, vedanta, and ayurveda.
His own practice and teaching essence have evolved along the many years of personal experience. From a very strong dynamic ashtanga practice in the early years to a more grounded, therapeutic, gentle and nurturing practice at the present moment.
Victor’s hatha vinyasa yoga classes emphasis on connecting the breath with movement and ultimately integrating gracefully the body, mind, emotions and soul to feel nourished, nurtured and grounded.
Victor is also trained in classical Ayurveda therapies, Thai yoga massage and Ayurveda yoga massage which broaden his experience and vision of the anatomy.
You can find Victor’s Hatha Vinyasa yoga classes upstairs at the Byron Bay Surf Club on Monday & Friday mornings from 8 – 9:30am. Victor is also available for private yoga classes.

“Just a quick email to thank you for your wonderful yoga classes that I have attended this week. Your gentle mannerism and caring nature made me feel safe and secure in your class. I always come away feeling energised, taller and of course very relaxed. As you may remember that I have a shoulder injury and I did not feel pressure into doing anything that did not feel right. I wish I was staying in Byron longer, as attending your classes would be a high priority.”Linda
