Board Certified Holistic Health Expert & Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner

Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher & Certified Yoga Therapist

 I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and very early in life I decided to travel the world in search of enlightenment.  After peregrinating from the heights of the Himalayans to the heart of the Amazon Forest, living in an Ashram in India and among the natives of the forest I discovered that soul searching does not go very far without physical health. 

After quite a few (more like A LOT) health setbacks for both myself and my kids and not finding the answers I was looking for within the medical establishment, I decided to be my own advocate and began studying how the body works.

Now that I found my peace and my health it is my duty to help others on their journey. 


I currently coach clients on their pursuit of health and wellness, and teach yoga in Southern California where I live with my family.

Yoga is a lifestyle, a way of living and perceiving the world around us. Health means a state of balance between your physical body, your thoughts and emotions, your relationships. Harmonizing your entire being so that you can show up in the world as the best version of yourself is my mission and my life’s promise to you. 

As a FDN Practitioner, I use functional lab tests and my analytical brain to find out what is going on in your body and uncover healing opportunities. I search for root causes of dysfunction and imbalances, and create an all-natural protocol based on those findings.

As a certified holist health expert and, yoga and meditation teacher, I will educate and guide you to go beyond just the physical body and achieve unbound energy.

"Those who bear the mark of pain are never totally free, for they owe a debt to those who suffer.”

Nobel Laureate Albert Schweitzer


You are feeling this way because something is stressing your body and you need to find out what it is. It could be your hormones out of balance, your diet, your gut not working well, mineral status & vitamin deficiencies, all the above.

I know exactly how you feel because I felt like that for a long time and no one could give me the answers I was looking for. Doctor dismissed me, my family thought I was losing it and I was tired of feeling crappy and not knowing why.  But I decided life should not have to be that way and that the symptoms were not just in my head or a result of getting old.
(I had them even when I was young!)
