My Yoga journey began when I was in university. I needed something that would help me to cope with stress and keep me sane in the hustle and bustle of every day life. 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.



Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Yoga Therapy Mallorca. A therapeutic intensive about Anatomy, Facia, Meridian & Organ Theory (Chinese Medicine) using Yin Yoga as a healing approach for stress related illnesses.



After I have been practicing Yoga for 11 years and various workshops, I´ve attended my Vinyasa Flow and Anusara inspired Yoga Teacher Training with Reflections Yoga / New York. I am a certified Yoga Teacher and accredited with the American Yoga Alliance.



Reiki and more energy work came into my life. I studied the Magic of Reiki with Catherine Wheeler in Bali and I am also a certified Reiki practitioner level 1+2.

Teaching around the world for e.g. at the Bali Silent Retreat, H2O Yoga and Meditation Center in Gili Air, 802 Yoga in San Sebastian, Caza Zen in Costa Rica, the Shala in Mexico.

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 LempkeMirjam Wagner, Paula Tursi, Susanna Huebner, Nancy Goodfellow and Susanne Faith. A long the journey I got inspired by more great Yogi´s like Bryan KestMeghan 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. I truly have something to offer and I feel authentic in my sharing of what I’ve learned. 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 would like to share with you! Let´s connect and share some good vibes.
