The first milestone in my life was my experience in 1987 with “Up With People” where I traveled with an international group of young individuals around the world to spread
understanding among people. We volunteered in the communities where we stayed with host families and performed in a professional, contemporary show with the same message.
This experience reinforced my trust and belief in that whatever I set as my heart’s desire, I will be successful in and that I am able to do whatever I set my mind to. It also deepened my compassion, understanding and love for people from all around the world.
I then became a professional dancer and did many collaborations with painters and sculpture artists. I graduated from a massage school in Switzerland and ultimately in 1998, was certified by OM Yoga (Cyndi Lee) NYC as a Yoga teacher. I lived in Chicago for 5 years, where I met a great bunch of talented yoga teachers from all over the world. By practicing together, I learned so much from them, as well as, from the wonderful dedicated people joining my classes.
While living in Switzerland, England, USA, Caribbean and Turkey I taught a wide array of yoga practices to my varied clientele.
My clientele range from kindergarten kids and elderly in nursing homes, to students of all ages from different
cultures and backgrounds in England, USA, Caribbean and Turkey. I catered to charity through donation based
classes and teaching on voluntary
basis for the elderly and those with
dementia. I have also worked with celebrities and UHNWI of all kinds (like Donna Karan, Uma Thurman,
Liv Taylor, Hugh Grant, Kevin Klein, Michael J Fox, Paul Mc Cartney, Laurie Anderson, Rahm Emanuel, Lady
Bamford, Patty Hansen …). I enjoy
relating to diverse groups of people and thanks to technology , I am able to reach people from all over the world teaching online classes in English and German.
I am especially grateful to have many of my former students attending my classes, joining in
simultaneously, across different time zones.
On my life’s journey I gained lots of personal experiences and developed my expertise through continuous learning, attending a variety of workshops and training with leading
international teachers. In recent years I have received certifications in Unnata Aerial Yoga,
Yoga Nidra and the Franklin-Method®. I am knowledgeable about nutrition, weight loss though
metabolism change and am an Independent Lifeplus Associate.
My interest in understanding human behavior on a deeper level, lead me discover Dr. Joe Dispenzas work and became a student of his.
I am very excited to be able to use and choose from this vast pool of knowledge about the body and mind to assist every individual on their own path of body awareness and personal growth.
I teach classes and workshops, lead retreats and teacher trainings and give private instructions.
Learning how the body works and what is true to my body, and me informs a deep understanding that I share with my students. My focus, besides coordinating breath and movement, is the transitioning from one asana to the other. I believe that we find the grace, strength and depth of the information for our practice and for life right there. My theme based classes range from
invigorating flows to deep slow flows, incorporating fascia release work and pranayama. I teach a dynamic blend of yoga asanas informed by precise attention to alignment that is supported by relaxed mindfulness and an uplifting sense of humor.
