Being born into a world that is driven by money and mania of industrial growth, undermined by destructive behaviour towards ourselves and this beautiful planet that we are sharing with so many other precious beings—not being able to comprehend these destructive ways of interacting—I started questioning the way we operate as humans from a young age.
Stepping into my first yoga class in 2012 initiated a process of shedding the many layers of an image that I had created of myself. The beginning of an inward journey: a journey of becoming aware and unlearning at the same time. Likewise, an outward journey—from frantic Berlin city life, to one year living in an ashram, into a life in nature.
After spending years of intensively studying the inner worlds, I am currently especially interested in how to bring the inner & outer work together. How do we not only heal ourselves, individually, but create life enhancing & supportive communities for all beings? I am passionate about exploring the interface between the spiritual, the individual, the political & the collective as I believe it is crucial the we, the people, start to take responsibility and create the world that we wish for.
The Heart of my work is to create spaces that allow us to enter within and explore our Self—our Wild Core.
Creating wholeness inside and out.
I am a certified teacher of Integral Yoga (BYV & Yoga Alliance). I did my teacher training in a Sivananda / Yoga Vidya ashram where I used to live and work for one year. I passed a Thai Yoga Massage & Californian Massage training. I am trained in non-violent communication, social permaculture and took part in various workshops and seminars concerning community building, natural farming and bodywork.
I have always been a passionate autodidact and an utterly intuitive, practical student. My most important lessons, I learned through mere, attentive observation (of inner & outer patterns of myself and the people around me) and bluntly following my senses–especially in terms of Nature Connection Practices & interpersonal relationships. The trees, the rivers, the mountains, the everyday encounters & workshops, people who live a modest, earth connected life & touched me deeply–and a good portion of solitude, have been my greatest teachers.
