Ever since his earliest memories, Gota’s been fascinated by the mysteries of life. That internal yearning motivated him to leave his native country in search of truth .This journey took him to over 25 countries. In 1999, he had his first direct contact with yoga which was Ashthanga yoga vinyasa in Ecuador from a direct student of Patabi Jois. In 2001, he discovered zen meditation in Switzerland and then moved to Spain and spent over a year in a zen monastery practicing meditation and doing intense retreats. In 2004, he became a shiatsu practitioner, which is a type of Japanese digitopuncture based on oriental tradition , that includes the understanding of yin & yang , five elements ,meridians, auriculotherapy , moxibustion and cupping. During all these years, he practiced in different styles of yoga from Kundalini, to yin yoga and vinyasa flow. In 2008, he became certified with 200 hours of training in vinyasa yoga with Rolf Gates in Athens, Ga. In 2012, he also became certified with 230 hours from the Asheville Yoga Center in North Carolina.Gota is also registered through the yoga Alliance E-RYT
All these years Gota has been sharing this beautiful path of yoga with large or small groups as well as one on one. Gota’s style of teaching is mindful flow where he blends asana, pranayama, and meditation.
