Beta felt drawn to spirituality from a very young age and yearned to learn more. She was inspired by her natural surroundings in Brazil, including African Brazilian rituals; their form of worship and the importance placed on nature. She connected to Osho’s work and Yoga and meditation soon became very significant in her spiritual evolution. As an avid athlete and capoeira practitioner, Beta studied Sports, Leisure and Physical Education at University in Brazil where she also started studying Ashtanga Yoga and Sports Massage. Beta later dedicated several years to practice Ashtanga and power yoga. She studied Myofascial Release Therapy and got initiated Reiki, Ayurvedic yoga massage and an intensive course in the chakra healing Barbara Brennan approach. Beta went on to live in India for 14 years studying and practicing and connecting to her spiritual path. In Rishikesh, she learned the power of living in devotion and became deeply in touch with Bhakti yoga practices. Her Mindfulness approach comes from Zen Buddhism and Vipasana meditation and she developed a new perspective on her asana practice as an integral blend of yin yoga, myofascial release, mindfulness and Dynamic Spiral movements. Beta is also a trauma release Breathwork therapist and currently studies Somatic Experience. Beta regularly travels the world offering trainings and workshops on Dynamic Spiral & Yin Fascial Yoga Education program, and Self-transformation Retreats for Women.
