Based in Munich I'm teaching and working as the the JTAP-Program Director at the Jivamukti Yoga Center. From time to time I’m also teaching classes at the Jivamukti Center at Schloß Elmau which is nearby.
Born and raised in Wiesbaden/Germany I graduated from the University of Munich with a Master‘s Degree in Communications and worked in advertising. To balance my exhausting job a physician suggested “to do some yoga…“. I started practicing once in a while with various teachers, wasn‘t really dedicated, but I could feel the benefits of „doing some yoga“.
In 2002 the Jivamukti Yoga Center opened in Munich and after my very first Open class there I knew I arrived at my real hOMe. My practice became really dedicated and the more I practiced the more I knew that advertising wasn‘t what I wanted to for the rest of my life. I felt the calling to teach yoga so I could give back to others what I was receiving.
I completed the 300-hour Jivamukti Yoga teacher training in 2005 with my beloved Gurujis Sharon Gannon and David Life at Omega.And after my apprenticeship in Munich I became an Advanced Certified Jivamukti Teacher in 2009.
I‘m deeply honoring the teachings of Sharon-ji and David-ji and I‘m grateful for their presence in my life. I‘m also thankful to all my teachers in the past, present and future and acknowledge that my own life experiences are my teacher as well.
