That previous experience in dance, led her in exploring the endless possibilities of the human body through different disciplines. Pursuits that finally brought her to yoga. After 4 years of continuous practice of Hatha and Anusara yoga, enthusiastic about the ways her life changed, she decided to become a teacher herself. The more she grew in her own yoga studies, the more certain she became that she is here to share the many great benefits she experience emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually from practicing yoga.

Her teaching is devoted to help people as much as she can to find that space inside them which is the center of their power and wisdom. Her passion is to help people to find more balance, peace, joy and love in their lives. The purpose of her teaching is to make students understand that yoga is not only the practice on the yoga mat but is the way we live, think and act; and dance is a way to express our feelings and make our bodies breath through rhythm and music.
