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


Meet my Family


I met David in 2011, we were in the same flight from Rio de Janeiro back to USA. Long story short, we fell in love during those 8 hours and a few months later, I moved to Seattle to be with him. David is incredibly kind, generous, thoughtful, intelligent, hardworking, committed, and hilarious, just an amazing human all around! He inspires me to push my boundaries and go out of my comfort zone ALL the time! He is a leader and a true adventurous spirit!

Savanna is our oldest daughter. She is kind, funny, witty, brave, free spirited, and full of energy! Savanna loves to swim and backpacking camping. She makes friends with anyone anywhere, she loves people and connection! Savanna is starting kindergarten at a Montessori school in the fall.

Adara is our "baby", even though she does not like to be called a "little baby" at all! Adara is the sweetest, she loves cuddles, nature, and food! She likes to take her time to get to know you slowly, and once she does, she will give you the best hugs! Adara is also all about being silly and funny, she is kind and empathetic. She loves animals, specially chickens! She is joining Savanna in the "children's house" also in the fall.

Bodhisattva Spartacus AKA Bodhi the corgi is just the best dog in the world. Our family would not be complete without him! He is the girls protector and my forever buddy!
