Since my early childhood days I have had a passion for movement and developed a good body-awareness. In 1998, I was first introduced to Yoga in India. Yoga has not quite let me go since then. I felt that something was missing in the more physically oriented forms of Yoga, until I discovered Agama Yoga and for the first time learned about Chakras, energy and the philosophy of Yoga.
I cannot imagine a day without Yoga anymore. I enjoy the beautiful moments during Yoga practice. I experience more and more serenity and a deep connection with my innermost self in my everyday life through Yoga.
My classes are meditative and are characterised by a high presence. Besides a good posture and the development of body-awareness, it is my desire that my participants discover the more subtle and energetic levels and develop a sense of connectedness to their innermost.
