A native of Brazil, Juliana moved to New York, with her son Pedro, in 2000 where she was introduced to yoga. She has taken 4 yoga teacher trainings since then: Ashtanga Primary Series a 200 Hour TT (2003), Forrest Yoga a 200 Hour TT (2006), and "Life of a Yogi" 500 Hour TT with Sri Dharma Mittra (2012), and the 800 Hour “Life of a Yogi” with Sri Dharma Mittra (2013). Juliana considers herself to be a lifelong student who is lucky enough to share and teach her lessons learned on this sacred science with all those who wish to receive it.
She has taught and practiced in various yoga studios in NY, CA, FL during the past two decades and feels blessed by the opportunity to learn from so many talented and seasoned teachers. Juliana believes yoga is the "house of no judgment" where one of the best things a student can do is to practice as often as possible and never give up.
From 2017 to 2021 Juliana moved to the Village of Catskill to open Yoga Path for Healing, AKA Yoga Path Catskill. So much happened at Yoga Path: Yoga Teacher Trainings, Yoga Retreats locally and abroad.
Juliana teaching style comes from a belief in empowerment of the higher self and observance of the yoga ethical rules on and off the mat. She tailors her offerings to fit needs of the ones in the room, so everyone in her class receives the maximum benefit from their time spent on the mat.
With a background in contemporary dance and awareness through the movement, Juliana blends her artistic experience with her love of yoga, creating a unique space for self-exploration and discovery through the practice and power of yoga.
