I’m Jadson Caldeira, professional dancer, choreographer, yoga and meditation professor, massage therapist, and teacher at the Conservatoire de musique et d’art dramatique in Montreal.
Although I am originally from Brazil, a fascinating country full of contrasts, I have now been living in Montreal for the past 30 years.
At a young age, I was already passionate about the performing arts, so I naturally studied theater, visual arts, and professional dance in São Paulo. Then during an extended stay in India, I discovered meditation. What a revelation!
I combined the idea of introspection with my experience with the performing arts: a fusion that became the foundation of my vision and my artistic work.
When I’m teaching movement, yoga, or meditation, I don’t really teach; I exchange. I view my teaching as an invitation to relearn how to speak with the body, allowing it to become the voice. Each word-movement comes from a technical skill, of course, but above all it stems from a personal experience precisely directed towards expressiveness, self-discovery, exchange, and sharing.
Various certifications I have acquired over the years…
- Hatha, yin, ashtanga, iyengar, and prenatal yoga
- Reiki master
- Massage Therapy
- Bonapace Method
- Birth Companion
