João Paulo Pereira is the founder of the BASA Yoga Method and has been teaching yoga since 2001. The belief that intense disciplined practice is best balanced with play and his unique fusion of breath, awareness, strength, and alignment (BASA) have offered his students a dynamic experience to connect to the living tradition of yoga.

He has trained extensively with Claudio Fernandez in the energetics of Hatha Yoga and Pilates, with AcroYoga Montreal, AcroYoga International, and he also holds certifications in ThaiVedic Yoga, Aguahara Water Therapy and different modalities of Yoga Therapy.
