ABOUT ME

I’m a Portuguese Yoga teacher whose Yoga journey began in Lisbon in 2014 when I began practising Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. At the time I was a lawyer and had been for almost 8 years, but I always had the sense that something was missing. Yoga had an immediate impact on me, so much that I decided to quit my job and the financial security that it gave me, to follow my passion for this practice and to dive into the unknown.

I went to Goa in India, where I completed a 200 hours teacher training of Mix Style Yoga, in March 2015, at Siddhi Yoga School. In May, I started teaching Hatha Yoga classes in Rishikesh (North of India, also known as the capital of Yoga). I also worked as an assistant in the Yoga classes of Siddhi Yoga School in Dharmshala, in June 2015.

I moved to Bali at the end of July 2015, where I ended up working for a surf camp called Lapoint Surf Camp as a Yoga Teacher and Social host, followed by 4 months in Sri Lanka and 6 months in Costa Rica, teaching Yoga and managing the surf camp.

In November 2016, I went back to India to work for a surf and Yoga retreat called Soul&Surf, as a Yoga teacher and booking manager. Since then, I have been spending my time between India and Sri Lanka, where I teach at Yoga Retreats, Surf Camps, Private Villas, Hotels and Hostels.

I completed my 50 hours of Yin Yoga course in November 2017, in Varkala and 300 hours of Vinyasa/Ashtanga yoga course, in Rishikesh, both in India.

In July 2019, I hosted my first Yoga Retreat, called “Awareness for Wellbeing”,with a dear friend of mine, in the enchanted Casa de Pascoaes, in Amarante, north of Portugal.

I'm currently living in Portugal, in Madeira Island, where I am from, teaching in several places with different schedules (check my schedule).

I speak Portuguese, English and Spanish, so can happily instruct Yoga in these languages.

GET INSPIRED

Full Power

Before I found Yoga I was lost, anxious, angry and ungrateful. I felt small inside and my view of the world was equally constricted. I suffered from bouts of sadness and low self-esteem and struggled to motivate myself. But Yoga came to change all this. It had an unexplainable impact on me. Almost immediately, I began to sleep better, I felt re-energised and began to feel stronger inside and out. And as time has passed, it has taught me to see things as they really are and to cultivate a lasting sense of happiness and gratitude.

Yoga transformed my life. It gave me the courage to take a chance and to face the unknown; to travel, to live abroad, to enjoy life and to to do the one thing that I love the most: to teach Yoga.

And because I believe this practice is so powerful, I want to share it with you, so you too can become more aware of what you feel, of what you really want, and realise that you are capable of everything and yes, that you deserve it all! 

Life is a process. We are constantly learning, growing, suffering and experiencing joy.  It's not an easy path to walk but it’s a beautiful ́and unique journey, not to be lived on auto pilot.

It's time for a full power transformation and I am ready to be your guide.

YIN/ RESTORATIVE

Passive practice that creates flexibility without strength, we hold the poses for 3 to 5 minutes in stillness, aiming to release the tension in the muscles, connective tissues, especially the fascia, while concentrating on the physical, mental and emotional sensations that arise in each pose. It is a great preparation for a meditation.

PARTNER YOGA

Traditional yoga poses with the support of a partner, who will help you to go deeper in the pose, understand how to get there, but you need to trust, to let go, communicate and have fun!

PRANAYAMA/MEDITATION

Pranayama is expansion and extension of the breath, by the use of different techniques, that means longer and slower breaths, that also have a cleansing effect in the body. Meditation: mindfulness breathing and other techniques aiming to bring consciousness to the present experience.

 

MY CLASSES

VINYASA FLOW

Active practice that requires more movement, where the breath is the fundamental key that links each pose in a flow meditation and the challenge is to keep the breath smooth and calm.

HATHA

Traditional practice, also active as requires muscle engagement. Encourages the body to lengthen and creates flexibility and strength simultaneously. We take time to focus on each pose individually, taking rests in between them to reset and prepare for the next one.

GENTLE FLOW

Active practice where we move slowly, holding each pose for a few soft breaths, to create some energy in the body, muscle activation while lengthening with awareness.
