10 Things About Me

  • Yoga works. So, I share it. I am not a natural-born yogini. I worked many years as a project manager and consultrainer in the corporate world and civil society. In my professional life it came natural to me to share what `works`.
  • Our bodies are dynamic. I am not always super-healthy. We need to meet problems as they come up instead of expecting to be healthy and strong forever. I love the holistic approach of yoga therapy giving practical tools for restoring balance.
  • Yoga is my way to get high. While the yoga therapy work keeps me grounded, I love practicing and sharing advanced transcendental techniques at my meditation retreats.
  • It takes a lot of mental discipline to push through. I am not `love and light` all the time. The path I walk comes with a lot of self-inquiry; therefore, confrontation with my `dark side`.
  • Our body knows what we need. But I don't always trust that we can `hear` the difference between the callings of habit and intuition. I am not into the healthy, super-food thing. I rather trust the system of Ayurveda giving simple directions to create balance at any given time specific to each person.
  • We are complex. I panic when asked to explain what I offer in one sentence. Sometimes many different means are needed to an end. I am here to make the best synthesis for you as someone who has worked deeply with various toys in my tool-box.
  • I am a nerd. I care for knowledge although I value experiential learning more. So, I try to offer a solid intellectual background even when introducing mystical tantric rituals.
  • I look good in high heels. I`ve never been fond of adapting a specific look or style depending on a chosen life-style. I don't walk around in yoga gear with a smoothie in my hand. Our feminine expression can be so rich and diverse; why bother to limit it?
  • I like sharing my personal stories only when I am teaching. It is boring to talk about `how I got here` otherwise. This is not a performance. Everything makes sense to me when I am there to help and inspire you.
  • I love simple things; a pretty flower, my love-cats, watching shades of green in nature. While teaching I follow this principle of simplicity; focusing on sharing what is practical and effective for each person based on their level of practice; beginner, intermediary or advanced.
