My Yoga Journey

As a graduated graphic designer I worked several years in different advertising companies in Munich. In 2007 I took the opportunity to move to Shanghai for 3 years, when my partner was offered a job there.

It was here where my yoga journey really began. At first I was exploring and practicing different styles of yoga, besides working at an event company. I soon realized that harmony of mind and body were what was most important to me. Following this passion, I took the next step and in 2008 I completed my first 200-hour yoga teacher training with Lance Schuler (Inspya Yoga).

From here on I began assisting different yoga teachers as well as teaching classes at the Y+Yoga Center, where I was also an assistant at further Inspya Yoga teacher trainings. Meanwhile, I also began to deepen my knowledge through several workshops and courses in applied anatomy and physiology in Shanghai and Australia.

After moving back to Germany in 2010 I continued teaching at different yoga studios and gyms in Munich. To broaden and deepen my knowledge I attended further courses in the areas of Yin and Pre- & Post-natal Yoga. Followed 2014 by a further trip to Shanghai where I finished my 300-hour yoga teacher training, once again with Lance Schuler.

Wanderlust came calling again and in 2015 me and my now husband relocated once again to Asia, this time to Singapore. Joining several teacher trainings there with Jo Phee helped me to grow as a Yin Yoga teacher and to strengthen my anatomy skills. And since I always have been fascinated by how yoga can positively affect health & wellbeing I naturally gravitated towards more therapeutic styles of yoga. For that reason I completed two yoga therapy courses at Pure Yoga, as well as two restorative yoga teacher training with Adeline Tien.

And as I am extremely passionate about health and using food to prevent illness and disease I started studying nutrition in December 2020 with the Health Academy Australia.

As life will only change when you become committed to your dreams, my husband and me stepped out of our comfort zone, quit our jobs in Singapore and moved in September 2021 to Thailand (Koh Samui).

Why I love Yoga

In yoga I found my true calling. 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 Hatha and Vinyasa classes are creative and playful with a focus on a safe and healthy body alignment for a sustainable practice. The more gentle and slow-paced yoga classes I teach, like Yin, Restorative, Yoga Nidra and classes to improve general health & wellbeing are always carefully planned and designed to balance out your physical body, to reduce stress and to increase mind-body awareness. It is very important for me to give participants easy access to yoga and to adapt to the special needs of each individual student. With great joy and enthusiasm I want to share with people what I experienced through yoga – perfect harmony within itself, satisfaction, serenity and the happiness that comes with it.
