In addition, she completed her Yin Yoga Teacher training, after following 100-Hour course certified by YACEP, with Leyla Ahmet Meredith and Payal Gori. Focus of the course is the traditional Chinese medicine and five elements, meditation and Yin Yoga practice. Following that, she will complete her Ashtanga Teacher training course with David Swenson at the Triyoga in Camden, London.

As a teacher she looks forward to guide and assist her students to a safe yoga practice that will help them relax and strengthen their body, mind and spirit.
