I was born in 1976. I worked as a photojournalist, journalist and editor for several magazines during 1995-2005. Introduced to yoga in 2004, I joined modern dance classes for a year during 2005 and improved my body awareness. In 2006, following the guidance of my personal curiosity I took Deep Connective Tissue and Trigger Point Massage trainings from Tatjana Rottenberg. In 2008, I attended Cornelia Klein’s 5 day Shiatsu Massage practical application training and in 2011 to Tatjana’s advanced level of Trigger Point Massage training. Between years 2009-2011, I attended to the seminars of the Institute of Homeopathy. I still continue my studies researching and learning about protective therapies and holistic medicine.
