GL : When and How did you become passionate about yoga/ travel?
I have started yoga 5 years ago, in Dubai. I used to practice rhythmic gymnastics very intensively until the age of 21 and when I stopped, I really wanted to find another activity, which could bring me the same inner joy and passion than RG.
Starting with some very dynamic and strong practices, I could find a rhythm and a certain discipline in my life. I decided to explore more the path of yoga and it has taken me to new perspectives. My inner world through the journey of yoga has become clear, stable and profound.
GL : What is your most memorable trip, experience?
My trip to Thailand definitely ! I met there the most incredible bunch of people ever. They became my family; we’re sharing the same passion for yoga and traveling, the same goals in life. And the place where I stayed, Vikasa, was the most comfortable bubble on earth.
GL : So far which country is your favorite ?
I would say Cuba; I could feel completely out of time there.
I’ve also adored South Africa, being able to observe that many animals in the National Kruger Park, was definitely an unforgettable experience.
GL : Any good address to share ?
For a delicious brunch in Dubai, go to Shakespeare & Co, they have a huge gluten free section on the menu, and the decoration is very original. BMK mall in Bangkok where you can basically find anything for cheap prices. The hotel Amarvillas Oberoi, in Agra, India, is probably the most beautiful place where I had the opportunity to stay, and has an amazing view on the Taj Mahal.
GL : For you, where is “the place to be”?
With yourself. Could be anywhere, as long as you are truly happy with your inner self, I truly believe that this is your place to be!
GL : One quote that is defining you ?
Home is where your hear love within stillness.
GL : What do you think is the most important benefit that you have gained from your yogi/ travel experience ?
I’ve learnt how it could be beautiful to be alone sometimes. Understanding that nothing is wrong with you. Acknowledging that only you can be your unique source of happiness. Enjoying each minute that life is offering to us.
