Before I started practicing Yoga, being an introvert, sensitive and artistic person- I looked for my own wholeness in relationships, substances and a self-destructing life that lead me to alienation from myself: I was depressed.
At that time, I was teaching ballet classes to children and had a ceramics studio in the small Island in Greece where we live.
I met yoga, back in 1992. It was when I first traveled to India in Banaras and then began practicing yoga with a book during my first pregnancy.
At that time Yoga was just physical for me, I liked to move and I knew my body from my life experience as a dancer, and felt good when I practiced but I wasn’t aware of the spiritual aspects of it.
It just felt balancing to me. Until one day, on the mat, realized I was going to get sick if I didn’t get myself together. So I-adamantly- decided to change my life, to go for the light.
