She fell in love with Contact Improvisation in 2010, while she was studying contemporary dance/improvisation and composition in Oslo, Norway. After some years on and around the performing arts scene, her interest turned to yoga and tantra. Since 2015 she has studied with meditation teachers in Ireland, Greece and India, and been teaching in Yoga TTCs in India. At the same time Contact Improvisation has been an ongoing love story. The playfulness, honesty, connection with other dancers and the joy of movement is what brings her back to the dancefloor, again and again.
