When Brazilian-born Luciana Freire moved to the United States in 1998 from her homeland, she brought with her not only a smooth and sensual accent, but also a contagious love and appreciation of her roots.

In Brazil, the samba is sacred. Girls grow up dancing it, flowing with it and drawing strength from this uniquely feminine and ancient expression. Brazilian yogini Luciana Freire learned early how movement, celebration and joy heals the body and transforms the heart.

A passionate educator, Luciana began her career in Brazil as an elementary school teacher in the private and public system. After moving to the , she found a vital, grounding force in yoga. By integrating the sacred samba, an entirely new form was created. YogaSamba is more than a yoga class. It’s more than a samba class. And more than an exercise program. It’s a powerhouse of a journey into light, happiness, sensuality, well-being and a beautifully sculpted body. And it’s an experience you won’t find anywhere else.


Luciana is at the global forefront of visionaries committed to awakening women and girls to their true inner and outer beauty.
