Gustavo Ponce



I had the chance to take two hormonal yoga teacher trainings thanks to Frédérique Verdeau. The first, hosted by Dinah Rodrigues, was the start of my journey into hormonal wellness and yoga. This is why I did not hesitate for a second when Frédérique told me about the GPBALANCE training. Led by Gustavo Ponce, I was enthusiastic about this training. Gustavo is very pedagogical, he shares with great generosity all his knowledge learned from the greatest yogis masters and put at the service of hormonal balance. I experienced this training as a great homecoming. I came back to my breathing, to my body with a more developed consciousness. The exercises are varied, both accessible and demanding. A return to balance that accompanies me in my daily practice and that I look forward to sharing with my students.

Thank you again for this initiation that has filled us with joy, and for your kindness towards us Frédérique. After feeling like an illiterate entering the French Academy when we introduced ourselves, we quickly forgot the gap that separated us from the other trainees and this thanks to you and Fanny.

The practice of GPBALANCE has been revolutionary for me because I feel that on the one hand, it gives me a lot of energy, I don't feel tired during the day and on the other hand, it is a method that saves yoga techniques and practices that were a bit forgotten and that I had no way of accessing beyond literature and I felt that something was missing in my personal practice. From what I have seen, it is also revolutionizing the lives of others, even those who have never practiced yoga. GPBALANCE is wonderful and I think you should spread the word because it is truly energy medicine.

With Gustavo Ponce (Chile, 2022)

As I believe nothing happens by chance, GPBALANCE was exactly what I needed. A lot of broken paradigms, a practice partly very different from the one I have been practicing for years, which is based on Iyengar Yoga, but a practice that energizes me and strengthens my body a lot, I feel really good.
