“The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.” ― Leo Tolstoi
Camila is the owner, leader teacher and massage therapist of Hope Studio Yoga & Massage. She has obtained her 500h teacher training qualification in the Seasonal Yoga Academy. Originally from Brazil, she has been living in Glasgow since 2014.
Camila started practicing Yoga hoping that it could help her cope with depression and anxiety. Initially, she was sceptical about the acclaimed benefits of Yoga. But time showed her how powerful and transformative Yoga can be to one’s life. Her yogic journey has been more introspective, focusing on personal growth and overcoming fears and insecurities. Along with her physical asana practice, Camila dived into the other aspects of Yoga Philosophy to find healing and peace.
Her teaching style is based on this value of finding the peace within and her slow paced classes focus on breath and concentration, allowing space for the student to experience stillness and balance. Her gratitude for the Yoga culture has turned into a life purpose of helping others to find their way to a more calm, balanced and fulfilling life.
Teachers such as the Mohan family, Brea Johnson, Tejal Patel, Jesal Parikh, Ann Swanson, Julie Hanson, Sue Woodd and many other amazing people have inspired Camila to keep learning and navigating the wellness industry with critical thinking and respect for the yoga culture.
To relax, Camila likes to cook and eat balanced and tasty meals. Cooking for her works as a meditative practice, and eating is more than just fuel, but a self-love habit.
