Rishikesh, India. 2016 

Here teaching my awakening yoga class on top of the temple just before I succumb to my western ways 

The "Other" Biography

Some say I spent several years traveling across South America, Europe and Asia. 

#truestory – In India, she was adopted by Rishikesh yoginis and lived nearby the worldwide famous Beatles Ashram amongst wild monkeys (and no windows) ✌️🐒

Soon after completing almost 500 hrs in total studies involving a Yoga Teacher Training in Vinyasa Yoga, Reiki, Sound Healing, Ayurveda and Yoga-Therapy, I became a local Mantra Singer and volunteered in several schools across India spreading the love of yoga with a silly ukulele.

<< As a result, I came back to London with anaemia and a deeper understanding of what makes us western humans (In Dior we trust). >>

Om Shanty, Shanté you slay:

In my list of hobbies you may find things like the dreams of shopping the things that no one is gifting me (yet), Rupaul's binge and chill, hunting the markets for vintage treasures, taking polaroid 600s of completely useless memorabilia, old-school 35mm film and film developing weekends, making cocktails and guilty cooking, writing poetry, playing the ukulele and the Indian harmonium with less skill than sentiment, collecting Classical vinyls and last and almost least, communicating candidly in emoji and other more useful 4 languages. 🇲🇽🔥🇬🇧 🔥🇮🇹🔥🇷🇴

BTW, I am also an activist  pescatarian fashion vegan that enjoys the occasional halal and organic chicken on sober weekdays. ◾️
