Bacilio Cortes’ interest in yoga started in 1999 when he opened a yoga book, saw a headstand, and decided he’d stay up all night until he got it. Fast forward five years and Bacilio started attending his first weekly Ashtanga class led by MYT founder Suzanne Manafort. In 2007, he decided to go to India to get a deeper understanding of yoga and its traditions. He received his 200 YTT Certification at Yoga Vidya Gurukul, an affiliate school of the Bihar School of Yoga, in Trimbak, India. He is happy and grateful to be a part of the Mindful Yoga Therapy team. He is also extremely grateful and honored to have worked alongside MYC Co-Director Eric Ramm, his co-pillar of support for the MYT and MYC programs.
