Some of her great passions include hiking on mountains, in the woods, seashores and deserts —sleeping and camping there. “Practicing Being Energy® has made more aware of living in the present. I have found in this art form —where awareness and movement come together, a way to work with all my elements, my virtues and abilities as well as my flaws and fears —which, once integrated in a conscious way as part of my structure, have helped me to transform, to perceive (in different ways) and to be much more creative. In my field of work, Being Energy® has helped me to plan and ground my ideas more clearly.” Ariadna offers a program of individual classes.
