In 1967 she begins to practice Oriental disciplines and meets the Master Yesudian philosophy, when he was in Losanna, Switzerland.

 

In 1970 she founds with a group of researchers a magazine called “Sintesi – Selezione dell’Arte (Synthesis – Art selection) where she was a responsible director and goes on with researches in the field of Yoga and as a free lance drafts-woman she works for various magazines. She collaborated in creating the posters for ski worldwide cup and fits out exhibitions paintings where she use her pictorial style.

In the meantime, she founds C.Y.Surya and becomes the President. She organizes Yoga, Meditation, Pranayama lessons and

Suryanagara is a place where people from different ideas, culture and race, without any sort of intolerances, can meet culture and Oriental disciplines, in harmony with the aim of its founder: Emy Blesio, and this it can be seen from the texts displayed in the school: The four Vedas (Hindu), the Guru Granth Sahib (Sikh), the Hebrew Bible and the Christian one, the Koran, The Philocalia (Orthodox) and so on.
