Even before I started teaching Yoga 11 Years ago, I have been entirely devoted to my growth and evolution through the continued study and practice of postures, relaxation, breathing, mantras, and meditation. I teach several types of Yoga including Hatha, Ashtanga, Power, Vinyasa, Yin and Restorative Yoga.
I am attuned to the needs and limitations of each of my individual students and guide them through their fluctuating limitations on any given day in addition to helping them achieve their milestones along their long term journeys. I have gratefully and humbly studied and learned from many renowned national and international teachers and I am registered by Yoga Alliance, Yoga Australia at a Senior level And Yoga Alliance in Brazil.
I also study Vedanta and I’ve been in India 3 times over consecutive years to study at Swami Dayananda Ashram.
Currently, I’m participating in another teacher training at Byron Yoga Centre to further increase my knowledge and experience.
(2016 – Current ) Yoga teacher at Chameleon New Age Salon – Gold Coast
Chameleon, in central Surfers Paradise, receives many tourists every day. We have some regulars but most of the students are interstate tourists and students from Latin America. Speaking three languages (English, Portuguese and Spanish) greatly helps me embrace all tourists and teach in a complete way along their beautiful journey. The classes are always a challenge in trying to help students with different physical and emotional stages. My classes are on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 6pm. Tuesday 09:30 am. I teach basically in this place Hatha and Ashtanga Modified.
(2015 to 2016) The Pure Yoga – Gold Coast
When I arrived on the Gold Coast I found this studio close to my home in Chevron Island and I went there to practice. The owner was a Brazilian woman who was a subscriber of my online magazine (I used to have an online Yoga magazine) and she gave me my first opportunity to teach in Australia. I used to teach a Brazilian group in Portuguese while I was improving my English and making new friends. I taught there for 1 year but had to stop when she moved far away.
(2010 to 2015) Jaya Yoga Studio – Brazil
After 3 years teaching at Casa do Yoga and completing my teacher training in Hatha Yoga and Ashtanga, I opened my own studio. I was teaching 3 classes a day divided into Ashtanga and Hatha in addition to conducting study groups in Vedanta and meditation. I also was the manager of this place
(2008 to 2015) Yoga for the Third Age
During these 6 years as a ‘compassion karma’ Yoga Job, I had around 30 students divided in 3 groups of people over 60 years of age. Most of them were living alone, abandoned and with a lot of injuries. The classes were focused on spinal care, rejuvenating health and longevity and nurturing love into their hearts.
(2007 to 2010) Casa do Yoga (House of Yoga) Brazil.
I did my first Yoga class here in 2004 and since this first class I hadn’t stopped. I felt in love with Yoga culture, India and its traditions. Without expectations I did my first teacher training here and the owner subsequently invited me to be a part of the team. It was a wonderful beginning.
