My Major was Traditional Eastern Arts with a 1,000 hour Yoga Teacher Training Concentration; my Minor was Somatic Psychology.

I graduated from Sofia University in 2013 with my M.A. in Transpersonal Psychology.

My prayer is that we all rise up and become the light and the healing our world so dearly needs.
