She is also the founder of Sohinimoksha World Dance & Communications and Sohinimoksha Artes de La India in Spain. During her session she enlightened the students how dance can be a way of communicating emotions through movements, evoking them, and ultimately letting them out into the open, which frequently tell a story. She portrayed several characters and incidents from Hindu mythology using her hands in a succession of mudras.The students followed her and portrayed the five elements of life. They also discussed the importance of water and methods of conserving it.
