Sebastian Valensi is a teacher in yoga and Eastern philosophy. Born and raised in Patagonia, Chile, he was introduced to Eastern philosophy early in his life as his dad was a Thai Chi and Qi Gong teacher. However, it wasn’t until later that he chose to change his life completely and explore the ancient Eastern traditions. I was so lucky to have Sebastian as a philosophy teacher during my 200 hours teacher training at Santosha and I am very grateful for this opportunity to reconnect with him again for the YAY!YOGA podcast. In this episode we talk about Eastern philosophy and Tantra, how to teach from these traditions with integrity and authenticity, and much more interesting topics.
