'Golden Healing Journeys' means for us, the dynamic process of moving towards our natural state of harmony. At the same time, gold as in alchemy is the perfect state of transformation.

We believe that two of the best means of returning to our inherent harmony are: Yoga and Ayurveda.

We promote and organize programs and activities to be able to share the knowledge of these two ancient sciences with as many people as possible throughout the world, so that everyone is able to come back to their innate state of well being.

In 1996, while studying and investigating different dance methods in New York, she had her first approach to yoga. The encounter was so significant for her that she decided to travel to India, the country where yoga was born, and broaden her knowledge for six months. On her return home she taught yoga for two years until she moved to London, where she continued sharing her knowledge and deepening her studies for five years.
