We met in a Buddhist monastery in Thailand
Since we have been cultivating a common dream:
offering our work across the world,
before opening a settled center, 
one day


These past years,
we have been dedicating our time and investing our energy
in deepening our practice
in yoga, massage, sound healing, and therapy

in Brazil, in France, and together in India 



Garden of Light

is the name we gave to our dream 

This website,

its outside shape

Inviting people that are called by,
to undertake a journey

from the outside world to their inner nature

to blossom from within,

their bliss



Amilton Brandao is a Brazilian
Hatha Yoga teacher,

certified by Yoga Alliance International, 

and trained in Integral Sound Studies and Practices,

bySvaram (Musical Instruments and Research Center)

in India

Versed in Asanas, Pranayamas, Kriyas, Yoga Philosophy, and Chanting through Kirtans

He's a practitioner of Buddhist meditations such as
Anapanasati (Mindfulness with Breathing),
Metta (Loving-kindness)
and Vipassana.

Capoeira (Brazilian martial art), Kung Fu, Tai Chi, Qi Gong, and Reiki
are the ways he's moving energy. 

Enthusiastic player of a shamanic flute, drifting into the realms of the primordial vibration and connection with mother nature.

Curious about human arts as a whole. From literature to cinema, from mythology to philosophy, from old religions to technology. With those, he found in him the need to share and express the infinite knowledge that surrounds us all.

Through shamanic experiences, traumas, and a continuous thirst for knowledge he understood his path: to absorb and to channel what connects us in the search for ourselves, to oneness.
