She practiced capoeira, muay thai, soccer, ballet and many other activities growing up in Brazil. She is also a graphic designer and an illustrator, through which she developed a keen and observant eye of the human body.Paula's classes have been described as both invigorating and relaxing. Through a gentle Vinyasa sequence and breath work, she creates the necessary space for students to explore their own bodies, feelings and sensations, allowing them to tap into the deeper layers of themselves.
