London, United KingdomHimalayan Hatha Yoga, AyurvedaWith a 10 years background as a Human Resources Professional within the Financial Services sector, I started practising yoga in 2007 and ever since wanted to learn more about the philosophy behind. I appreciate the deep connection between body and soul in a way I never did before and how beneficial it is, not only physically but on a more subtle level. Through yoga I found access to myself, to my inner truth and to my soul – found peace within. In October 2010 I decided that I want to deepen this knowledge in India, the place of origin of Yoga & Ayurveda.
With the inspiration and support of my teacher Yogi Ashokananda I set off to Vrindaban in India, where this beautiful journey started. I still feel blessed for all the lovely experiences made during my trip and my studies in India and Thailand. In November 2011 – back from my trip – I started working for Wellicious, an eco-friendly, ethical yet feminine and luxurious yoga fashion brand and parallel to my work I certified as a Himalayan Hatha Yoga Teacher with Yogi Ashokananda. I am focussing on combining my professional skills with my yoga teaching and holistic skills. I am teaching in London and currently in Zurich where together with a friend we run detox weeks in spring and autumn. My passion for healthy lifestyle, helping others to understand the benefits of yoga, food, thoughts and behaviour is my vision...
