|Hi, I'm Marco|
Dear reader, welcome and thank you for stopping by my blog. I'm Marco Pino and I'm very happy to share with you my path to yoga.
I was born and raised in Ecuador. I'm a yoga teacher and a permanent yoga student. I'm passionate about yoga, meditation, traveling and blogging about my path.
I'm addicted to my iPhone, which I use extensively to record my path on pictures and videos, and maybe one day I'll learn to play electric guitar like Jimmy Hendrix :-)
What is this blog about?
My purpose is to inspire you to follow your own path by sharing my path with you, and to give you life changing tips that I've learned from the teachings of the ancient yogis.

More about me
My spiritual journey started long time ago, as a little kid in school who didn't pay attention to class but who was rather constantly lost in his own thoughts about the real origins of this universe.
I discovered the yogic path when I read for the first time the Bhagavad Gita, back in 1999, which literally changed my life. Soon after I joined a yoga school in Ecuador where I learned the basics of meditation.
Fast forward into the future...
In April 2010 I quit my corporate job in Europe to focus on my spiritual path. Since then I have spent most of my time in India practicing and studying every aspect of yoga.
I did my first Yoga TTC in 2010 at the Sivananda Ashram in Kerala, and since then a few other trainings followed.
My intention was not to become a yoga teacher but to do an immersion program to learn as much as I could about the whole system of yoga. I also wanted to use hatha yoga to strengthen and purify my body and mind, as an aid for my daily meditation practice which I started long before that.
Soon after doing my yoga trainings I realised that teaching is also part of my sadhana (spiritual practice) so today I teach classical hatha yoga with an emphasis on breath awareness, paying attention to the inner feelings, state of mind and body sensations to keep the mind focused and present.
I combine my interest in strength training and meditation to teach a meditative class but physically challenging to develop core strength, endurance and stamina.
