FILM & PHOTOGRAPHY
I love to travel with all my heart, it gives me a meaning to life and I am very passionate and inspired by all things that visually catch my attention. I love to communicate, tell stories and share experiences and I find film-making and photography the best way to share what I see and express how I feel. I'm a freelance filmmaker and photographer and a lot of my work you will find here on my website are short videos for social media - from all kinds and sizes of event coverage, wellness related content (yoga studios, retreats, professionals), mini docs on artists and professionals, fashion related, travel / lifestyle and behind the scenes videos from all over the world ( Brazil, USA, Dubai, Australia, Indonesia, South Africa, Costa Rica, Morocco) . From script, production, direction, to videography and editing, I've done it all! In the photography section you will find some work I've done in lifestyle, festival/event coverage, fashion and travel.
If you are wondering what is Gypsy Road, let me introduce you to the time I was a TV host for a Brazilian TV broadcaster and online magazine about travel and festivals around the world. I you want to have some fun, enjoy the ride watching some of the episodes I filmed at Burning Man, Lightning in a Bottle, Symbiosis, What the Festival, Envision, Lollapalooza, Tomorrowland and Universo Paralello.
Since the age of 20 I've been practicing yoga on and off. I began practicing Ashtanga and for many years I was hooked and stuck to this ancient practice. I've never been a big fan of the gym, so it was "the yoga" that kept me moving, feeling strong and fit - little did I know that with the years of constant practice on the mat my whole life began to change off the mat too. I began to feel more disciplined, determined, concentrated, less anxious, my diet changed and so did my lifestyle. Yoga changed my life and gave me a deeper sense of connection with my mind, my body and my breath.
For the past years I have been traveling the world deepening my studied and enrolling in different teacher trainings, exploring through different yoga methods, participating in yoga festivals and events, teaching classes and holding retreats in Dubai, Australia, Indonesia, South Africa, Morocco, USA and Brazil. I have over 500h registered with Yoga Alliance, holding an E-RYT Certification. I feel lucky and honored to have had the opportunity to study with amazing and inspiring masters such as Shiva Rea ( Chakra Prana Vinyasa ), Duncan Peak ( advanced sequencing and biomechancis) , Leslie Kaminoff (yoga anathomy and breath), and Cameron Shayne and Melayane Shayne (Budokon Academy).
Some of the methods I teach today are:
Budokon Yoga - a mix of martial arts, calisthenics, mobility and animal locomotion in a 7 set sequence series.
Chakra Prana Vinyasa - working though our subtle body activating our energetic field through mandala flow, namaskars, meditations and chants specific for ou Chakra system.
Vinyasa - fluid, powerful and energetic and creative flows keeping attention to alignment and using the breath as the guide throughout the practice.
I use my passions for travel, filmmaking, photography and yoga to teach, travel and create beautiful stories.
My mission is to inspire people to look for a change in their lives through yoga by stimulating their connection with their essence, gaining confidence, flexibility, and strength in their body and mind.
