She has studied Iyengar, Vinyasa Flow and Hatha Yoga under Haris Lyroni, Myrto Voutira and Michel Filinis respectively. She completed her 200-hr YTT Certification with the latter.
In 2013, she discovered Ashtanga Yoga and started practicing occasionally. From 2014 till 2019 she practiced almost daily with Eleftheria Lagoudaki.
She has attended seminars and classes with David Garrigues, Eddie Stern, Ty Landrum and Angela Jamison.
She has traveled to Copenhagen (2017) and Mysore, India (July 2018, December 2019) to study under lineage holder Paramaguru R. Sharath Jois in SYC (formerly known as KPJAYI).
In the recent years, she has entrusted the supervision of her practice with Certified teacher Hamish Hendry, whom she visits in London as often as she can manage. In February 2023, she assisted him in the morning Mysore classes in Dharma Shala – Astanga Yoga London.
