I had completed a variety of training courses in different areas of yoga and tried out different aspects for years when I eventually found what I had sought for so long in the Yin Yoga teacher training by Paul and Suzee Grilley.
This approach to yoga gave me a sense of deep inner peace and a feeling of arriving. Indeed I continue regularly with training, but beyond my own yoga and meditation practice what was really formative were my own personal experiences of everyday encounters with yoga in my life. For many years I had my own yoga studio, where I gave thousands of yoga courses and amassed a great deal of teaching experience. Training those who are interested in Yin Yoga brings me much joy. As a nutritionist, I work holistically and integrate my own approaches into my consultations, depending on what the individual requires. I gave up my yoga studio in 2015 due to relocation, and since then I have been focusing even more on Yin Yoga teacher trainings.
I am the author of various yoga books and DVDs. My first book, “Yin Yoga – The Gentle Way to Inner Balance”, was selected by “Yogaguide” as the “Best Yoga Book of the Year” in 2011. The positive resonance from my first work touched me deeply and gave me an important sign that I am on the right path.
Your own body is your most important yoga teacher” (from “Yin Yoga – The Gentle Way to Inner Balance”). This sentence from my book describes my teaching style very well. I am happy to support people to get to know themselves better, understand the language of their own body, and find access to their inner self. Therefore, I do not offer yoga that is the same for everyone. Instead, I respect the uniqueness and the needs of each individual person.
