Whilst having been a Yoga practitioner for many year, she gradually began to embracing the full spectrum of Yoga teachings. Coming from a corporate demanding background, requiring you to constantly move on the next ‘New thing’ the practice of Yoga and ‘allowing’ while ‘being present’ was and still is a very powerful lesson for her, both on and off the mat!
