MEET

our tribe

We build community through actions, through selfless service, through self-inquiry into our authentic nature, and through daily practice. On, and off the yoga mat.  

We practice developing intimacy with others, but also with ourselves to get in touch with our own subtle body energies and in tune with our essence nature.

We are Moksha Yoga Amazónica.
