I was born in beautiful Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and moved to America in 2001. My husband is in the military, so moving to different places became our routine, and my home became any place where I laid my mat.
I started my journey to becoming a yoga teacher with Doug Swenson in 2010 in South Lake Tahoe. I fell madly in love with the Ashtanga Practice, as well as the majestic beauty of Lake Tahoe itself. In 2011, I studied under Doug again for my 500-Hour certification. Since then, I have been deepening my practice through the studies of Ashtanga and Iyengar yoga.
I have been blessed to learn from very inspiring teachers including Carol Sele, Doug Swenson, Jennifer Wolfe, Tiffany Cruikshank, Kathryn Budig, and Maty Ezraty, as well as my students.
