House Yoga Instructor
Born in Brazil, raised in the USA, Mariana started her academic and professional path as an artist and arts administrator. After working at art galleries and alternative art spaces and interning in established institutions such as the MoMA and Christie’s, she went back to her studies to take a closer look at how socially engaged artists could use social entrepreneurship style models to develop and fund their work.
Through her studies, her idea of what “art” meant became more and more expansive. After completing a MA in Social Practice Art and Entrepreneurship at New York University, Mariana moved to Lisbon where she began teaching yoga as part of her art making. She has now been practicing yoga for 9 years, and completed a 200-hour teacher training through Yoga Works while living in New York in 2015. Mariana currently teaches at Yoga Lab Lisbon and Work In Studio in addition to leading private and corporate classes.
