My yoga journey started long before I decided to become a teacher. During the time I spent in China and India, Yoga became a more and more important part of my life.
I was lucky to meet people who lightened my way and inspired me in my choices to simply give up everything that didn't make me happy.
I discovered different yoga styles on my journeys (Ashtanga, Power yoga, Jivamukti yoga, Yogic Arts) and I stay open to new experiences. My personal teaching style is quite dynamic. I try to challenge and stimulate my students but also encourage them to follow their pace without pressure.
Before creating yogaroom and yogaloft, I have been working as an independent yoga teacher. It is a real fulfillment to share the enthusiasm for yoga with my students.
I love to be a student myself and explore the infinity of yogic experience. Whenever there is time I travel, mainly to yoga workshops or retreats.

To be engaged in sports has always been part of my life. Doing gymnastics and Pilates as well as swimming, running and cycling, I started to practice Yoga in 2007. From the beginning I was fascinated by the different benefits of Yoga such as
flexibility and strength, but beside the physical aspect the mental aspect became
more and more fascinating to me.
„Meditation in Motion“ is a way of practicing being present in the body, in the here and now, to find ones balance and to stay centered. I took classes and workshops in different styles namely Vinyasa, Sivananda, Ashtanga, Jivamukti and Yin Yoga, allways being open to different approaches to that what Yoga means: To unite body, mind and soul. In January 2011 I started my 200 hours Teacher Taining in Vinyasa Yoga which I finished in February 2012. Actually I deepen my knowledge in Yin Yoga.
I discovered my passion for yoga in 1998.
My journey started with a Teacher Training at the SivanandaVedanta Yoga Center in Rishikesh, India, followed by another TTC in Vinyasa Flow with Jacqueline Heisel in Bali.
I have always stayed opened to all styles of yoga, and had the chance to do workshops in Ashtanga, Power Yoga, Kundalini Yoga and Anusara Yoga (Immersion) with great teachers. I started teaching in 2004 in several Yogastudios in Berlin, until I joined yogaloft in 2011. In my own yoga practice I unite the meditative power of Hatha Yoga, the elegance and fluidity of Vinyasa with the precision of Anusara Yoga. It is very important for me to pass on the original spirit of yoga how I was taught on my path. Yoga is much more than physical wellbeing. Yoga is an art of living, a gift for which I am endlessly thankful.
Yoga has been an integral part of my life since 2001, when I started my yoga journey with Ashtanga and Babtiste Power Vinayasa Flow, exploring various other styles along the way. I received my Teacher Certification in the USA, where I learned a number of various styles including Kripalu, Iyengar, Amrit and Ashtanga. I am continuously learning and expanding my knowledge with yoga workshops and taking classes from other qualified teachers. I am also a certified Pre-Natal and Post-Natal Birthlight Yoga Teacher.
In my daily practice and teaching, I focus on centering and calming the self, and incorporating the mind-body connection throughout all the practice. One of the central aspects of my teaching is integrating with the present moment and listening to what the body is telling you. When you do that, yoga becomes accessible to everyone and an incredible tool of transformation.
