Hi, I'm Brisa. My pronouns are she, her, hers. 

I am a mama of two beautiful girls and Bodhi the corgi, and wife to the love of my life, David. 

I grew up in Ipanema Beach, in the big city of Rio de Janeiro, and spent my summers at my grandparent's barn, in a small farming town in Santa Catarina in the south of Brazil.

Back in Rio, I studied Dramatic Arts, followed by a journey that brought me

to the Rocky Mountains, Bermuda, a sailboat across the Atlantic to the Azores,

then the Canary Islands, and Spain.


I love traveling and the outdoors. I'm passionate about helping people. I love learning about the journey of self realization, and supporting people in their own self discovery.

I am always looking for new ways to get inspired as a parent, as a human,

and when on my yoga mat - both in my practice, and when I am leading my yoga classes. 

I lived in Aspen, Bermuda, Madrid, Boston, and Seattle before settling down in

Durham, North Carolina. I feel really fortunate for having the opportunity

to experience so many different cultures and ways of living.

 I am a yoga teacher, a vision and goals Lightyear coach , a yoga retreat creator and host,

and the founder of Yoga for a Cause Movement

I'm an adventure seeker, world traveler, food enthusiast, wellness junkie,

and avid yoga practitioner. I am a human in progress.


I met David in 2011, we were in the same flight from Rio de Janeiro back to USA. Long story short, we fell in love during those 8 hours and a few months later, I moved to Seattle to be with him. David is incredibly kind, generous, thoughtful, intelligent, hardworking, committed, and hilarious, just an amazing human all around! He inspires me to push my boundaries and go out of my comfort zone ALL the time! He is a leader and a true adventurous spirit!

Savanna is our oldest daughter. She is kind, funny, witty, brave, free spirited, and full of energy! Savanna loves to swim and backpacking camping. She makes friends with anyone anywhere, she loves people and connection! 

Adara is our "baby", even though she does not like to be called a "little baby" at all! Adara is the sweetest, she loves cuddles, nature, and food! She likes to take her time to get to know you slowly, and once she does, she will give you the best hugs! Adara is also all about being silly and funny, she is kind and empathetic. She loves animals, specially chickens! 

Bodhisattva Spartacus AKA Bodhi the corgi is just the best dog in the world. Our family would not be complete without him! He is the girls protector and my forever buddy!
