Fernando has a background in martial arts, he has a black belt 4 degree in Brazilian Jiu jitsu and he took part in many competitions was six times São Paulo champion. He has always been adventurous; in 2002 he had a serious accident with his paraglider, followed by eight days in coma and stayed one year in hospital. This was a very difficult and traumatic period of his life. Fernando started practicing yoga as rehabilitation of his injured body, but he realized that the yoga practice also deeply affected the mind. This made him curious and resulted in a trip to Mysore, India in 2005, where he for the first time came in contact with Ashtanga Yoga. He had planned to stay for two months, but he stayed for two years. He is going back every year to study with his master Sharath Jois. In Mysore Fernando is also teaching Jiu Jitsu for Indian fighters.
He was authorized by Sharath in 2010 to teach the Ashtanga Yoga system and had the honor to assist Sharath’s class. He also completed Sharath’s special course for teachers.
For many years Fernando and his wife Sara (also an Authorised Ashtanga yoga teacher) were running their Ashtanga Yoga school in Brazil. In 2015 they moved with their two daughters to Bali where they both were teaching. Since 2018 they are mainly in Europe.
