Rodrigo Bussad holds a PhD in Music Composition at the University of Chicago and has taught various Music disciplines over the years alongside his carrier as a composer and performer. Rodrigo is an Official Artist for Handromeda Handpan and RavVast Drums Social Media representative. He brings his own music to his yoga classes or collaborating with other yoga teachers. Rodrigo holds a 200YTT certification from Yoga Renew Teacher Training (New York 2022-2023). Rod has completed workshop trainings on handstand techniques from the MOVA Method (Brazil, 2022), Pranayama training and Hands-on Adjustments Workshop at Moksha Yoga (Chicago 2023). Besides Yoga, Rodrigo is a black belt in Taekwondo (Brazil, 1998), and three times national champion in Kung Fu Wushu (Brazil, 2007-2012).
His skills include Vinyasa Flow from Beginner to Advanced, Hatha Functional, guided pranayama and sound guided practices. With the motto – “Your body is your biggest adventure”, Rodrigo believes that yoga is a journey back to oneself, the path being unique and timeless. In his classes the student teaches as much as the teacher, thus creating an open space for personal development – both physical and spiritual, where things such as big or small effort, achievement or non-achievement, cease to matter, giving space to intention, sensation and self-awareness.
