Hello, I’m Pino
“Be the Change you wish to see in the world.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
This is one of my favorite quotes from Mahatma Gandhi that has enlightened me and inspired my yoga practice and my life.
Before I began teaching yoga, I was a professional dancer.
Dance training taught me self expression, discipline, focus and a sense of gratitude for my body.
During this training, yoga was introduced to me as a part of my physical preparation. I was blessed to have teachers who were so fired up when they lead a class and I left feeling inspired.
I began teaching yoga, and became a fitness trainer.
My company: D C F – (decide, commit, follow through) and my workout DVD:
Xtreme Power Strength Endurance grew out of a deeper calling to create positive change in people’s lives.
On this journey, I walked into a Baptiste style class. I never experienced FIRE, POWER, JOY, EASE, ENERGY and POSSIBILITY on my mat like I did that night. I was hooked. I wanted more!
I took my first Baron Baptiste Teacher training in 2009. I am a certified Baron Baptiste Power Vinyasa Teacher and completed Level 2 and 3 Teacher training. Now I teach classes at Power Yoga Canada, lead Teacher Trainings, Yoga Retreats, and Wellness events, and assist Baron Baptiste around the world with Trainings and Bootcamps
As Marianne Williamson says:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.”
My intention in every class is to challenge you and allow your spirit to shine. I will support you to take your practice and your life to the edge.
I am a better instructor, and a better human being because of the many students who come time and time again to join in my class and the many teachers who have made an imprint on my life.
We work, laugh, sweat, and become transformed.
See you on your mat. Namaste.
See Pino in action
