My Yoga Journey

I’m a Yoga Alliance Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT 500) who has taught a wide range of yoga styles for over 14 years in different countries, including China, Singapore, Thailand and Germany where I currently live.

I have always been fascinated by how yoga can positively affect health & wellbeing. Along with yoga, I advocate the use of food to achieve a healthier life and to prevent illness and disease.

My yoga journey began in Shanghai in 2007. In 2008, I decided to take my love of yoga further by undertaking an extensive 200-hour yoga teacher training with Inspya Yoga teacher trainer Lance Schuler.

In 2010, I returned to Munich in Germany where I explored and studied a wide range of yoga practices including yin yoga, pre and post-natal yoga and anatomy. My teachers include Paul Grilley, Patricia Thielemann-Kapell, and Josh Summers.

Returning to Shanghai in 2014, I completed an additional 300-hour yoga teacher training programme, once again with Lance Schuler.

In 2015, I relocated to Singapore where I gravitated towards more therapeutic styles of yoga. I completed two yoga therapy courses at Pure Yoga, as well as two restorative yoga teacher training programmes with Adeline Tien. During this time, I was also inspired by my study of Chinese medicine, Yin, and anatomy, attending several trainings with Jo Phee.

As I always was passionate about health and all aspects of it I started studying nutrition with the Health Academy Australia in December 2020.

In September 2021, I followed my dream to live life on the island of Koh Samui in Thailand, leaving behind the big city life.

In May 2022, I finally relocated back to my home country Germany (Munich) after living abroad for 7 years.

Why I love Yoga

I love yoga so much because it grounds me when I need to come back down to earth, and it lifts me up when I need energy and inspiration. Yoga brings harmony to my life, calmness to my emotions and peace to my busy mind.

My Teaching Style

My classes are carefully planned and attuned to the needs of each student. My strength as a teacher lies in attention to detail, and focus on how to make poses effective for students through precise instructions and adjustments. It is important to me to create a wonderful atmosphere in the class where everyone feels encouraged and inspired to progress at their individual level. I love to teach gentle and slow-paced yoga classes like Yin, Restorative and Therapeutic Yoga as well as powerful and faster-moving Hatha and Vinyasa sequences.
