Our Facilitators


Nuno founded Embodhi (formerly BioPerformance Academy) in 2015.

He started exploring the human body and mind when he was only seven years old by dancing and performing. During that time, he discovered yoga and became passionate about it, eventually becoming a yoga teacher at the age of sixteen.


While working as a performer in Europe, he became more interested in holistic health and healing. Yoga brought him comfort and a sense of peace. Driven by his love for yoga and a desire to help others, he dedicated himself to teaching. Since 2011, he has traveled extensively in Europe and Asia, sharing his knowledge and skills with people who want to grow and heal.

Nuno's teachings are rooted in a functional approach to movement and encompass the wisdom of Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and Mindfulness practices. Currently, Nuno is pursuing studies in TCM as a practitioner and Acupuncturist, further deepening his understanding of holistic healing modalities.

You can attend one of Nuno's yoga classes in Amsterdam at Movements Yoga  or book a treatment with him in Amsterdam East.  

Nuno bi


Stijn's roots lie in the event industry, where he earned his stripes by producing unique live experiences for large companies in The Netherlands and abroad.

Working in events is often accompanied by a fast pace and hard deadlines. As a result, Stijn ended up overworked several times. After the umpteenth time at the end of 2020, it was time to change something fundamental.

For some time he practised breathwork through the Wim Hof method and Kundalini Yoga. But the life-changing effect of breathwork only came into its own when he came into contact with Conscious Connected Breathwork (CCB).

This CCB practice has the great potential to connect us back into ourselves, permitting us to access the innate wisdom that is part of our human makeup - but has most likely become lost in our hectic and convoluted modern lives. With breathwork the desired path is one where we get to meet ourselves: forging forward and achieving a greater sense of who we are and self-navigating our own healing. By doing so we can be granted access to suppressed emotion and hidden trauma in the body - often trapped deep within our cells. Thus, allowing us the beautiful opportunity to cleanse ourselves not only physically, but mentally, spiritually and emotionally.
