Yoga was introduced to her life in 2008, during her time in the Middle East. It was in yoga that she found balance and inner peace that allowed her to endure the hectic agenda of her profession at the time. Gradually she fell in love with the philosophy behind the method, and since then has been deepening knowledge in this area.
Over time, yoga and other contemplative forms have gained a bigger space and relevance in her life, and gradually she started transitioning from the Corporate life to this new life.
