Domingo has been practicing asana yoga since he was fifteen and discovered the vast world of yoga that goes beyond the asana a few years after that point. He has spent hundreds of hours exploring his own practice on the mat which has translated to clear, conscious direction while teaching. Mingo has deepened his practice by traveling to India to study ashtanga with Pattabhi Joi's daughter, Saraswathi, and also began to meditate.
Having felt first-hand the transformative powers that yoga, meditation, and conscious breathing can bring to life, he has spent the last 8 years teaching his students what he has learned. Always with patience, always with compassion, you will find his class rejuvenating and challenging.
Mingo is certified as an E-RYT 500 and YACEP with Yoga Alliance.
