My interest in yoga was awaked midway through my business career. At that time I had two master’s degrees and was part of the management team of a federal office ... and was unable to stop the endless spinning carousel of thoughts in my mind . Later, I happened upon a newspaper article that aptly expressed what had brought me to yoga at the time: “If I have to press the ball of my big toe into the floor to keep my balance, I simply don’t have time to make a shopping list for dinner in my head.” Focusing on one thing leads to a calming of the nervous system and the mind. No other occupation had ever made this possible for me.
Today, many years later, I am not only a yoga practitioner, but also a certified Iyengar Yoga teacher and am in further training at The Yoga Therapy Institute (in Amsterdam) for the international recognition as a yoga therapist C-IAYT. Meanwhile, I am also aware of the many other positive effects that the various yoga practices can have on the body and mind - provided they are applied according to the needs and abilities of the individual. For this reason, I work almost exclusively on a one to one basis with clients and offer classes in small groups only in my work as a yoga teacher.
I am a certified teacher and member of Iyengar Yoga Switzerland (IYS) and Iyengar Yoga UK (IYUK) and member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT). My teachers are Sheila Haswell, Lydia Holmes and Edgar Stringer (in Bristol and London), Brigitte Bögli and Geri Pfammatter (in Bern) and Montserrat G. Mukherjee and Marleen Jansen (in Amsterdam).
