Javier Guerrero studied economics for years and it was a trip to India that changed his life; he discovered Yoga, Ayurveda and conscious eating. That trip transformed him and made him begin his dedication to organic food, kitesurfing and the things he loved. He trained as a yoga teacher in 2013 and had his first encounter with AcroYoga, in Bali, that same year. AcroYoga planted a little seed in his heart that has evolved and has led him to train as a teacher and to be an enthusiast for sharing this art with all those he meets along his path.

Antonio Galán began his path in 2012 after a period of transformation and training at the International School of Yoga (200H). Yoga invaded his dancer’s soul. Later he continued his training with Javier Castro at Yogashala (500H), and it is from here that he became passionate about biomechanics and the functioning of the body in depth. Shamanism and healing through the regulation of the nervous system makes its medicine penetrate to the deepest depths, breaking hearts installed in the unconscious.
