- My Yoga journey began when I was in university. I needed something that would help me to cope with stress and keep me sane. Something that would help me to find stability, clarity and connection. More important I needed something that would answer me a few questions that couldn´t be answered in uni. Questions about how to live a great connected life with integrity and thrive. I practiced regularly for 11 years and attended various workshops, Yoga conferences etc. before I started teaching and sharing the wisdom of yoga.

In my teaching I incorporate many of the valuable and inspiring elements that I´ve learned from my amazing teachers like Yogarupa Rod Stryker, Lance Schuler, Katchie Ananda, Phil Lempke, Mirjam Wagner, Paula Tursi, Susanna Huebner, Nancy Goodfellow and Susanne Faith. A long the journey I got inspired by more great Yogi´s like Bryan Kest, Meghan Currie, Octavio Salvado and Simon Borg Oliver, to name a few.
I believe the best way to teach and share knowledge is after you have experienced and felt it on your own. That´s why I am forever grateful for all experiences I had in my life and give thanks to my teachers who taught me many things that are not written in books. I did spent years of my life in Costa Rica, Bali, Portugal or Ibiza -naturally transformative and spiritual places. I truly have something to offer and I feel authentic in my sharing. Yoga is a never-ending learning experience. That makes it so delicious to keep on learning and exploring more of what this ancient tradition has to offer.
That´s what I share with you! Let´s connect
