Mariano (Mano) is Founder and Director of Ayama, Center for Yoga & Healing Arts. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Information Systems from Florida International University, a Master’s degree in Chinese Medical Qigong from the International Institute of Medical Qigong, and a Doctorate degree in Chinese Medical Qigong from the Henan University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. He is a senior Registered Yoga Teacher ( 500), Reiki Master in the Usui lineage, and a Transformational Breathing facilitator.
Teaching for over 15 years, Mano’s style has grown playfully eclectic and experiential, graceful and unique. Having explored many different Hatha Yoga traditions, Mano teaches from deeply inspired heart and mind. His classes are geared towards the organization and integration of all layers of our being. He believes there is only ONE Yoga, different ways to go about it and different elements that support, shape, and enhance its teaching and practice. “Technique is only but a small part of the actual teaching… true teaching is the inevitable reflection of the vibration and state of consciousness of the teacher.”
As a healer, Mano is extremely intuitive and transformational, as well as compassionate and understanding. He cares for each patient and student individually, since everyone’s constitution, needs and possibilities are different and unique. He is deeply interested in human evolution, metaphysics, the esoteric world and all that is cosmic and transcendental. Mano is available for private sessions.
