Elaj was raised by her parents with a grounding in spiritual values, so was already familiar with many of the teachings shared at Hridaya upon encountering the school in Mazunte during a trip to Central America in 2015. She was, however, not familiar with the teachings within the context of the yogic tradition. Finding herself deeply inspired by these traditional teachings, her outlook on life subsequently changed in a quite radical way. She discovered newfound confidence in herself and started to share what she had learned with her family and friends. Two years later, and with a desire to share these teachings with a wider audience, she joined and graduated from the Hridaya Teacher Training Course in 2017. She now teaches at our newly-opened Hridaya center in France.
