Hello and welcome!
I am honored that you are here.
I am a mama of two beautiful girls and Bodhi the corgi, and wife to the love of my life, David.
I am a yoga teacher and the founder of Yoga for a Cause Movement.
I love traveling and the outdoors. I'm passionate about learning. I am always looking for new ways to get inspired on my mat, in my practice and when I am teaching yoga, and as a parent and human being. I'm an adventure seeker, world traveler, food enthusiast, wellness junkie, and avid yoga practitioner.
I grew up in Ipanema Beach, in the big city of Rio de Janeiro, and spent my summers at my grandparent's barn, in a small farming town in Santa Catarina in the south of Brazil. Back in Rio, I studied Dramatic Arts, followed by a journey that brought me to the Rocky Mountains, Bermuda, a sailboat across the Atlantic to the Azores, then the Canary Islands, and Spain. I lived in Aspen, Boston, and Seattle before settling down in Durham, North Carolina.
Coming from a totally different background and through my travels, I learned a lot about other cultures and ways of living. I learned that true happiness can be fostered when we plant seeds of compassion and understanding towards all beings. And that I could use any privilege that I have received to uplift and elevate someone's else life.
In April 2020, during the world's quarantine, I founded Yoga for a Cause Movement. Its mission is raising awareness and money through donation-based yoga classes. We send 100% of the proceeds to an organization that creates a positive impact in the world, by supporting socially affected communities.
