ABOUT


I am…

…passionate about the connection of the physical BODY with mind, soul and the universe around me.

…growing, evolving out of the suffering and blindness of the past, into living more fully, more daring to be me, more in line with my heart’s longing and the calling to serve.

What I do

I’m a yogini & yoga teacher**, in constant OBSERVATION and EXPLORATION of my own BODY, MIND and connection with SPIRIT, looking for ways to make life easier and more meaningful, but not necessarily less challenging… CHALLENGES are how we grow!

I believe in conscious DEVELOPMENT, a conscious evolution of the human species, through inner PERSONAL GROWTH.

Clearing the way back to my core, a more unconditioned, fearless and AUTHENTIC version of me. To enjoy more of the life that I’m blessed with. To be more of service to a higher good.

I believe in CONSCIOUS PLEASURE, I believe in PEACE, I believe in CHAOS. And the ENERGY that carries us through it all.

Sometimes I’m in FLOW, sometimes I’m a CONFUSED MESS. When nothing else works, I BREATHE.

My work. . .

… is dedicated to personal development THROUGH the BODY. Coming to peace with the mind and strengthening the spirit-connection through body-mind PRACTICES. 

YOGA is the foundation of my work.

What for?

Ultimately, understanding and coming into closer connection with you, is the way to change not only yourself, but change the world. I believe everything in the outside world is an expression of our (collective) inside world.

“If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself. If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.”

-Lao Tsu

Or in the words of Michael Jackson (from “Man in the Mirror”):

“If you wanna make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make a change.”

On my way here…

Before landing in YOGA TEACHING and working with the body-mind-spirit connection, I worked as a consultant in hydrogeology and polluted grounds. Way before that I had a bunch of different jobs, mainly teaching (Chemistry/Physics/Maths) and caring for old and disabled people.

NATURAL SCIENCES have been my base of study, having a Master’s degree in Geosciences. It serves me in my understanding of the body, physiology and the interconnectedness with the universe around.

Years ago, I was a lot into singing and writing MUSIC, but I ended up putting the music INTO the BODY through DANCE and YOGA.
