I have been teaching yoga and meditation since 2015 and asissting Teacher Training Programs and working as a body therapist. I have been part of CI-Turkey team and helping out with social media and communication.

I have been moving since my childhood. I played volleyball as setter for 10 years. While I was doing outdoor sports like trekking, cycling and caving I started practicing yoga. Since 2011 I am practicing yoga and meditation daily. I also get interested in body therapies like massage, craniosacral and have been trainings since 2014. Simultaneously on my bodily experimentations and research I started Contact Improvisation. Since 2016 I have been part of the research team on CI with Defne Erdur’s facilitation.
