We are the same weight, height, and ride roughly the same type of terrain. I wish I could help you, but I've had my suspension re-valved and re-sprung, so my settings will not apply to your bike.
How about posting some pictures of Sao Paulo?

Having said that I've had great success with the following;
1. Move to 7.5 weight oil (I like Golden Spectal 125/150) (To the best of my reasearch, Kayaba 01 is 5 weight)
2. 100 mm race sag (I've actually taken the sag a set futher and set mine at 95mm in an effort to make the bike turn better, it worked )
3. I've got my oil level at 95, but I weigh more than you do and I jump. 105mm is plenty for your weight and the trails.
4. Like I said I weigh more than you, about 215, and I've been very happy with my clickers set like this;
For what you describe I would suggest "STARTING" at 2 clicks in on my rebound settings and out 2 clicks on my compession.
Hope this helps. Please remember this is what "I" like, suspension is a very subjective thing. But I think that for you this would be a good "STARTING" point...
