My name is Cura Im a Massage Therapist and Yoga Teacher with 10 years of experience in Brazil, Central America, Europe and India.
All this years I’ve been gathering knowledge in many alternative healing techniques, learning through experience from my travels in different countries, cultures and people. Had to face my own fears, insecurities, challenges along that path, that just made me stronger and the result from all that experience was a much more compassionate heart towards myself and others around me.
The decision to become a therapist and yoga teacher started to flourish from that space inside that wanted to serve and help others. To have a purpose beyond a self-serving life. My own healing began when I understood that by assisting others and helping them to feel better and give new insight, new perspective about themselves I was helping myself to grow as a human being.
Today I can say that I am in love with what I do. Because I’ve been experiencing myself the many benefits that this practice offers. And plus, l love sharing it ! 🙂
I understand that each individual is unique. I provide personalized massage treatments for each client and condition. Yoga classes are designed to meet the needs of diverse students in a peaceful and playful atmosphere.
I like to provide both physical and energetic information, postural adjustment and adaptation in case of pain or injuries. So students and clients learn how their body, mind and energy works and they will eventually become conscious and take responsability for their own transformation.
My work is oriented by the 5 elements system, combining the knowledge of ayurveda and chinese medicine, connecting with the seasons in nature and its lessons to create a balanced and happy life.
