Sensitive and curious, and always ready for an adventure, often in search of beauty, special places in nature, and large bodies of water to submerge myself in. I am a yoga facilitator with a deep love for movement, whether that's creative vinyasa sequences, embodiment dance, animal movement, or arm balance play. I studied yoga in North Sumatra, Indonesia with Flying Elephant Yoga school (200h) and in Costa Rica with Authentic Movements (300h). I cannot wait to dance with you!


It was one of the most memorable experiences of my life!:) A lot of attention to detail and very interesting workshops as well as yoga and meditation classes. I'm recommending these wonderful people (Sophia, Tiana and Adam) to everyone, cause they are very special and create unforgettable experiences. Much love!❤
