Over the past two decades Ayala’s passion has been exploring the link between yoga and creativity and how it can support well being and mental health. Her research and learnings during this period lead her to develop a unique way of bringing yoga and creativity together and sharing it with adults, families, toddlers, children, teens, and children with special needs. She is now sharing yoga, mediation and creativity in leading yoga studios, privately, and online.
