My Passion for Yoga

My name is Mauro Junior and I am the founder of Secret Yoga Sutra.

In 2009, I moved from São Paulo, Brazil to London in the UK to study a degree in economics and business and during my academic life I initiated my passion for yoga.

Studying a degree in a foreign language was one of the most challenging things I ever experienced and to cope with the high stress levels, I needed something more physical than just meditation so I decided to practice yoga as well.

One month before my final exams, I decided to enroll myself on a yoga teaching training course in Rishikesh, India where I became a yoga teacher.

It was the best decision of my entire life.

What is interesting is the fact that I book my flights on the same day as my final exam. Living the class room with a luggage ready for India was a truly liberating life experience.

I will never forget that.
