    After Maria finished school

    I am wondering if my sentences are grammatically correct.

    After Maria finished school, she went off to India, where she learnt yoga for six months. She returned completely transformed, from a party animal into a spiritual woman who liked to meditate and preferred quiet life.

    See above. If she didn't stay in one place in India, I'd probably use "... she travelled round India for six months, learning yoga."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
