The beginning of the journey

Her contact with the physical body began in her hometown in Larissa with Niki Sveltou and Simona Badiou who were her first ballet teachers and as an adolescence she excelled to become a member of the young dancers in the Thessalian Ballet under the guidance and mentorship of Tania Miltenova and Ges Mihov. It was not until 2007 that she first came in contact with the philosophy of yoga, and ever since she has tried not only to deepen her physical practice, but also to cultivate a yogic way of living.

The highlights
