Esteban DaCruz


While training in mixed martial arts and bodybuilding, Esteban sustained an incapacitating back injury that forced him to stop all physical activity. After a period of rehabilitation and rest, he began to practice yoga with the hopes of returning to training. Instead, he discovered a passion for yoga. Esteban has since participated in several teacher trainings while studying with master teachers and teaching all over the Greater Boston area. He continues to deepen his daily yoga and meditation practices.

Drawing from the Iyengar and Ashtanga lineages, Esteban brings traditional Hatha yoga teachings and philosophies to apply in the modern world. His goal is to teach alignment of intention with action, and the stepping out of injurious habits to find greater peace and harmony within ourselves and our communities.

While off the mat, Esteban spends time with his family, or studying anatomy and eastern philosophy, and writing. To explore some of his writing, visit



My greatest motivation to continue learning is self-improvement for the sake of the people around me and for my personal sense of fulfillment. I try to remain open to inspiration wherever it may come from; I derive it from scripture, from my family, and from nature.
