Meet Luciana Freire

It was during those early years in the United States that she discovered yoga and mindfulness practices, which became an outlet for her physical, emotional, spiritual and mental wellness. 

After many years of devotional practice as a student, Luciana started her own journey of trainings collecting over 2,000 hours of education. 

She became a body, mind and soul coach.

"The time I spend with Luciana is a gift that I give to myself.  Her guidance of my journey through yoga, meditation, self-empowerment and femininity has benefitted the whole of my life: body, mind and spirt.  Luciana combines her natural gifts as a healer, teacher, coach and spiritual mentor to guide, with loving care, each of her students. All of her teaching and guidance is infused with her native Brazilian spirit and zest for love, life and harmony.  Anyone lucky enough to be in her presence is truly blessed."  KC Newport Beach, CA
