Hi, I’m Daniel!
I’m a Yoga teacher, physical trainer and rock climber. I grew-up in Chile, a truly inspiring place between the Andes mountains and the Pacific Ocean. I moved to Europe to study in 2015. Here, I discovered the scientific dimension within my personal practice and how the understanding of it could not only improve my own health and performance but also the one of others. I followed a bachelor’s programme in Montpellier and continued my studies in Belgium, where I obtained a master’s degree in Exercise Physiology Research at the Université Catolique de Louvain-la-Neuve where I graduated with maximal distinction.
I began my Yoga practice more than ten years ago, and since then I’m totally passioned about the Yoga practice and philosophy. Since 2015 I’ve been sharing my practice in many Yoga Studios and fitness clubs. Although my alma mater is the Vinyasa tradition, most of my classes are inspired in many different Yoga types (Hatha, Ashtanga, Rocket,…) and even some touches of Circus arts and Pilates.
I’ve collaborated for many years with professional athletes, helping them to improve their shape and awareness through Yoga and pranayama, particularly my dear friend Chloe Caulier, nine times Climbing National Champion.
Regarding my climbing expertise, I’m an active and committed climber and coach. I’ve been teaching climbing to people of all ages and been part of the climbing culture for more than ten years. I’ve worked besides professional athletes, including some of the best climbers in the world and also the Belgian National Climbing team. My climbing skill it’s graded around 5.14c (8c+) lead and a V13 (8b) boulder. But beyond grades, I’ve dedicated my work to develop a methodology focused on fostering each person’s true potential, finding their specific strengths and areas of growth.
As both a coach and Yoga teacher, I enjoy being challenged by my students, it’s my mission to help them learn new skills, build their bodies harmonically, and develop the mindset needed to reach their goals.
