I began this amazing and magical yoga journey, twenty years ago, at the beautiful Integral Yoga Institute in NYC, founded by the beloved Sri Swami Satchidananda. Throughout the years, I have explored various styles of yoga including Anusara, Iyengar, Ashtanga, Kundalini, Dharma, Jivamukti, and Raja. After almost 14 years of practice, I walked into my first Anuttara class and my whole world turned upside down! It was pure magic! Anuttara is designed to bring balance between the rigorous asana practice and stillness in meditation, following the Sapta Krama as prescribed by the Rg Veda. I felt inspired to share this magical, transformational, ancient and sacred science with others. I became certified with the Yoga Alliance (YRT200) in Hatha Yoga by the Anuttara Yoga Shala in Deerfield Beach, FL. I continue to expand my learning through workshops/classes with beloved teachers- fellow Brazilian (!!!) Sri Dharma Mittra, Yogacharya Philip Christodoulou, David Williams, Thich Nhat Han - and continued exploration of the epic yoga texts.
I believe wholeheartedly in yoga's immeasurable power to transform you at every level by simply bringing you back to your true nature. My intention as a teacher is to share this sacred science while inspiring my students to live the yogi life.
