Nicolas was born in Brazil in 1986 and grew up in Luxembourg. After studying philosophy he has spent much of the past decade exploring yoga, shamanic paths, meditation and bodywork. Since 2016 he has been teaching yoga and providing massage therapy services. In 2017 he started a yoga program at an artist community in Berlin, where he maintains a studio. His teaching focus is mainly on self-care and relaxation. He continues training online and in person with much emphasis on TCM. When he is not obsessing over healthy minds and bodies he can be found playing records on his turntables or doing radio broadcasts. Nicolas enjoys working with little or no oil at a slow and meditative pace. His approach is holistic, taking into account the physical, emotional as well as spiritual well-being of his patients. Sessions will cover the entire body with special attention given to the patients breath as well as zones of discomfort. Pressure & intensity levels as well as the methods employed will be adapted to individual needs. It is best to wear light & comfortable clothing.
