During this period, she also devoted her time to silent retreats led by Sahajananda, the founder of Hridaya Yoga, who offers a beautiful method of meditation focused on the spiritual heart incorporating elements from Kashmir Shaivism, Advaita Vedanta, Sufism, and Dzogchen.
A lifetime of dance and gymnastics brought her on to the spiritual path nineteen years ago and today she feels really passionate about sharing the true essence of yoga and the importance of moving beyond the attachment with the physical body. She uses the practice of Ashtanga Yoga to guide students deeper into their internal world, using metaphors and poetry to enhance the already existing beauty of stillness.
