In a nutshell, I am a woman, mother, wife, daughter, teacher and friend. I am from Brazil and came to the USA at the age of 19. I studied Biotechnology Rochester Institute of Technology, and worked in Wall Street for 12 years, first at Bloomberg LP and then JPMorgan. During these time, I met my husband Marko, got married, and had two children – Isabela and Mateo. I fully understand how stressful it is to try to balance personal life and be a successful professional, who is trying to do it all.
After the birth of my second child, everything changed. I went through a very challenging period of my life and faced many personal challenges. During this journey, I found Kundalini Yoga, reconnected to my soul and started understanding the meaning of the challenges life presented to me.
Kundalini Yoga centers my life and through its long history teaches me how be a stronger version of the person I who I always thought I would be.
I am a KRI-Certified Kundalini Yoga Teacher, and trained under renowned teacher Gurmukh. I also have a certification in Radiant Child Yoga, Reiki Usui Method Levels 1 and 2, as well as an Astrology certification with Rebecca Gordon, and hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Biotechnology from Rochester Institute of Technology. I am fluent in English, Portuguese and Spanish.
