Describe your classes in 3 word

Empowering, connecting and explorative 

What is your story with Yoga?

I was constantly travelling for 2,5 years in my gap years and that’s where I got spellbound by Yoga. Since my surroundings was continuously changing, Yoga helped me being grounded in my core, in what I was and who I was (am) and it further helped me grow and expand. It still does. Everyday. And that’s why I’m so captivated by what Yoga does. It’s both intriguing and hard to put into words, but the feeling speaks clearly and that’s what matters. 

What influences your style of teaching?

My teaching is mainly influenced by my believe in, that we as human beings already hold within us what we need – but very often, we lack awareness of this. I think Yoga is the most beautiful way to become aware and connect the experiences of the mind and the body - because both hold so much vital knowledge. So, when I’m creating my classes, I’m very inspired by the music I listen to, the poetry & books I read and the nature that surrounds me and how it affects my intuition.

What do you do for self-care?

Essential oils in the shower is such a luxurious treat, taking a mattress and a duvet out on my balcony to read or to listen to music, putting on lavender body oil before bedtime.
