I am originally from Brazil. I started modeling when I was 17 years old in Milan, Paris, Germany and then NYC, where I spent 16 years of my life. I was modeling full time there with Ford Models and then Wilhelmina Models NYC. When I first moved to NYC I was having a hard time to live in such a big and hectic city, plus being away from nature and working in an environment that everything is so temporary, with values different than mine in the fashion industry.
I started to search for something with a deeper meaning and to get me back into balance, into my essence- and that's how I found about Ashtanga yoga in 2002 In NYC. Right away I started going to India to study and then back to NYC. I continued to mode and practice yoga seriously together, sometimes combining the two for work with clients like Athleta and Shape magazine. After a few years of practicing, I started to teach. With this transition, my model clients changed into a more healthy, sporty, yoga lifestyle clients. In 2018 I found out I was becoming a mother and now another chapter in my life begins combining being a mother first, a yogi and a model.
