José is authorized to teach the Ashtanga system by Shri. K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga yoga research institute (level 2)

Severe back pain led me to a yoga class at a Buddhist centre in the south of England, which opened both worlds for me, the one of Ashtanga yoga and the one of Buddhism. A few years after that class, I did my first trip to the KPJAYI (Shri K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute) in Mysore (in 2005), where I go back almost yearly to continue with my yoga studies.
I am very grateful to have the opportunity to transmit a bit of what I have learned in Mysore over the years, and to be able to combine the teaching and the study with my job as a veterinarian.

My encounter with yoga came about from questions arising from my practice as a visual artist, a question of how to understand the relationship between self and world. In 1999 I attended my first yoga class, an Hatha class, and in 2002 I committed to a daily Ashtanga Mysore practice. Two years later I travelled to Mysore to study under the guidance of Guruji, Sharath and Saraswati and since then I have lived and worked in India regularly and for extended periods. In London I study under the guidance of Hamish Hendry whom I also assist and it is to him that I owe my understanding of what practicing and teaching yoga means. Today I combine yoga with art and see them as a single practice.
