As a former psychologist with a background in Human Resources, personal development has always been a part of my life. When I stepped onto a yoga mat for the first time in 2010, I was looking for a way to improve my own development and self-knowledge. I practiced yoga occasionally, but it was not until 2014 that yoga became an essential part of my routine.
Through my daily asana practice, I realized that I wanted to experience and learn more about the principles of yoga. In 2017, I began to deepen my personal practice by studying yoga in Brazil. This led me to question how I wanted to live my life and what values I believed were important. After my profound searching, I realized that what I wanted could not be found in my crazy business life in São Paulo.
Thus in 2018, I decided to follow my heart and further my studies with Gregor Maehle and Monica Gauci in Bali for a 200-hour yoga teacher training course. Something big awoke inside of me during this immersion course and I wanted to share it with others. I truly believe that yoga is a tool for self-knowledge and transformation and this belief sparked in me a willingness to teach yoga to others.
After Bali, I moved to Mexico City for a year. While there, I taught private and group yoga classes in my cozy little shala, as well as in the homes of my students. Additionally, I offered yoga and meditation classes to companies so that their employees could experience quiet and peaceful moments within their workday. As a teacher, I always strive to serve my students by personalizing my classes to meet their needs.
In addition to practicing and teaching yoga, I love to surprise people with plant-based dishes. I studied culinary arts in Bali, Italy, New York, and Brazil. As a result of this, friends in Mexico began to request my services in culinary consulting. This blossomed into the preparation of customized dinners and brunches in my home and in the home of clients. As such, you will find many delicious recipes on this blog as well.
I now live in Cascais, Portugal, because I wanted to live closer to nature. I know that I will continue learning about yoga and sharing it with whomever I meet there. I am also excited to bring a Portuguese twist to my plant-based recipes. Join me on my journey!
It is my pleasure to be part of your transformation.. Namaste!Caroline
