During this time Jacinta was pursuing her other love - ballet, she took up a scholarship at the Hungarian National Ballet. After several years in Europe, fatigue and an ongoing back injury brought her back to Australia. During this time Jacinta discovered Pilates and immediately recognized its potential, and undertook training and certification.
At the age 23, Ashtanga Yoga found Jacinta; she immersed herself in Yoga whilst continuing to grow as a Pilates Practioner. Wanting to expand her Yoga training the journey moved from Toronto to London teaching Pilates at leading Pilates Studios in London, presenting Pilates workshop's throughout Europe, and expanding and deepening her Yoga practice in London.
An injury in London resulted in a journey and detour back to Australia to spend time with family, rehab and healing. She became the Pilates and Yoga teacher to the Australian Ballet in Melbourne.
A friend gave her a book 'The Eight Human Talents' by Gurmukh (a world renowned Kundalini Yoga teacher). She set off to Los Angeles to study intensively with Gurmukh (as Kundalini Yoga was virtually unknown in Australia).
