I am a dedicated Vinyasa yoga practitioner. I have been doing yoga on a regular basis since 2008. I started practising after I burned myself out several times. This happened at such a young age that I realised I had to make some drastic changes in my life. This realisation brought me to do yoga so I could learn how to find calmness in myself and understand the boundaries of my body. I explored various yoga styles and teachers until I settled with a more powerful style that helps me deal with my busy daily life. I love the energy my body creates, and the stillness in my mind, while posing in a powerful asana.

In the past years I have made several trips to India to learn about the yoga lifestyle & I’ve been practicing yoga in studios in Amsterdam, Sao Paulo and San Francisco. I am also an active Vipassana meditator, I have undertaken several 10 day silence retreats. My aim is to do one course per year to deepen my meditation experience, self knowledge and compassion for others. In 2014 I finished a Vinyasa yoga teacher training with David Lurey and Mirjam Wagner, I have a deep understanding of anatomy via a yoga anatomy and breathing course by the breathing guru Leslie Kaminoff. To deepen my practice and that of my students I am practicing yoga therapy under the guidance of Kate Holcombe and I have been trained in BoxingYoga by Kajza Ekberg and Matt Garcia.

In the past I have taught private and group classes in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Amsterdam. As of 2015 I am living and teaching (groups and privates) in San Francisco, following my dream to become a better yoga teacher and practitioner.
