Member Spotlight: Carlos

Member Spotlight December 12, 2018

At Humans.net, we appreciate our community of skilled members! For our next Member Spotlight, we sat down with Carlos Campillo Rubio, Hatha Yoga Instructor and a Dance/Movement Therapist. Read about his approach to yoga and life.

Humans: Please tell us about yourself! When did you realize that you want to start your journey as Yoga Teacher?

Carlos: My name is Carlos I’m a Certified Yoga Teacher and Dance Movement Therapist currently living in Philadelphia Greater area. I discovered yoga when I started dancing 14 years ago, as a tool to improve my flexibility. I was dancing a lot and wasn’t taking care of my body so I started having a lot of injuries because of bad alignment and muscle overstress. Four years ago I started getting more interested in Therapeutic and Alignment classes that helped me to reconnect with my body, mind, and soul. After finishing my Master Degree in Dance Movement Therapy I decided that I wanted to become a Yoga Teacher to help other people reconnect with their bodies.

Humans: What was your first class like? Has your approach to yoga changed for years?

Carlos: My first Yoga Experience was a very physical and orthodoxal 90-minute class, then I started practicing Vinyasa and Bikram and when I decided to become a Yoga Teacher, I trained in Hatha, Anusara, and Iyengar. So definitely my approach has changed and I am constantly experimenting and integrating new learnings.

Humans: What are the marketing instruments you use to promote your business?/How do you attract clients?  

Carlos: I always like the more personal way to get new clients, but I like using platforms like Humans.net to make my work more visible, as well I try to create interesting content for my social media.

Humans: How have you found the best way to relate to your clients? Do you let them become friends? Do you keep a professional distance? What works best?

Carlos: I think it’s very important to have a professional setting but always towards building a deep connection with the needs of each client.

Humans: Do you vary your teaching in line with the seasons?

Carlos: I do, I believe that every moment is unique and that in Yoga we work with the present moment.

Humans: For you personally, not necessarily in your professional life, what role does yoga play for you?

Carlos: Yoga has become part of my life, it has given me a new awareness of the way I behave and communicate with the world. It connects me with my self and with others in a very simple and natural way.

Humans: Do you see your job as a transformative force in people’s lives?

Carlos: I definitely believe that Yoga is a fantastic tool to allow people to connect with themselves and that is a very powerful tool for transformation.

Humans: A piece of advice for anyone considering to take your career steps?

Carlos: Follow your dream and your intuition, work with love and always trust in your inner voice.
