I am Brazilian, 42 years old, yoga instructor and I work teaching and receiving people for Finnish sauna bath, food and yoga practice. I have a 20 year old son who doesn't live with us.
In our mountain home, we live only me and my mate, who is a psychologist and acupuncturist. Here we live with 5 very docile cats and they love humans.
Our home is very comfortable with lots of hammocks for incredible rest, immersed in nature and surrounded by rainforest. We are practically within an environmental protection area.
I am vegetarian, but here you can learn the typical Brazilian barbecue, feijoada and caipirinha, with my partner who also likes to cook and is not vegetarian.
Here we have organic garden, composting and selective garbage collection. We value silence, protection and conservation of the environment. It will be great to receive foreigners to help me learn English, who enjoy good food and who can help me in organizing and cleaning the house and garden.

Here you can learn how to cook delicious vegan and vegetarian dishes, practice yoga, take a Finnish sauna bath, a typical custom here in Penedo, brought by the settlers in the first Finnish colony in Brazil. You will learn our customs and have the opportunity to know beautiful places such as Visconde de Mauá and Itatiaia National Park, important tourist regions of the Mantiqueira Valley. We are 3h away from Rio de Janeiro airport or 4h from Sao Paulo airport.
I hope to receive English speaking foreigners to help me learn the language, which can help me clean my house and maintain my garden, which likes nature, yoga, cats and meeting new people.
The visitor will have a private room, and the bathroom with hot water is shared. We also have 2 cold showers and 2 other bathrooms. The house is located high on the mountain with lots of nature around and we don't hear loud music. The place is very calm. We have the Atlantic Forest and a stream at the back of the house.
Visitors should prepare their own food when we are not at home. The ingredients will be available in our kitchen. You can use the sauna, recreation area, kitchen, internet, wifi and cable TV.
