My yoga journey started during my pregnancy, in 2007. I was amazed at how the practice helped me achieve a much needed physical, mental and spiritual balance during this wonderful period of my life.
Afterwards I noticed that yoga was giving me something that I had always yearned for, the ability to grow into a more compassionate, strong and balanced human being.
In fact the more yoga classes I took part in, the more I discovered that the discipline of yoga had the power to soothe whatever my physical, mental, and emotional state may be.
For me it seemed natural that the next step would be to share my passion with others, so with this in mind I enrolled in a 100H Anusara Immersion course in Bruxelles, under the guidance of Jayendra Hanley.
During this time I stumbled across Jivamukti Yoga through a workshop in, of all places, Luxembourg! My love for yoga became my passion and the practice and teachings of the Jivamukti method became my vocation.
In 2014 I stepped out of the world of business to become a Jivamukti Yoga Teacher as well as creating my own yoga clothing company, Kali Urban Yoga.
I completed my 300 hour Jivamukti Teacher Training in India in early 2015 and upon returning to Luxembourg I joined Dancing Kala Yoga Studio. In September 2016 I co-founded Yoga Palais. I am grateful to my family and to my children because of their deep love and support and to my teachers Sharon Gannon, David Life, Lady Ruth and Jules Febre who inspired me and compassionately accompany me on my path.

My Yoga journey started in 1998, when a friend took me to my first yoga class during a stressful period of exams at high school. After that, I started to practise Yoga regularly.
Later, during my studies in Geography, Sociology and Ethnology in Heidelberg and Munich, I couldn’t let go of it and when I graduated, I travelled to India, eager to get to know the country where Yoga originated. There, in a Sivananda ashram in the Himalayas, I did my first Yoga teacher training course.
Back in Munich, I discovered Jivamukti Yoga, in which I found my vocation and undertook Jivamukti teacher training. Since 2007, I have worked in Munich as an 800 hours certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher and became an advanced certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher in 2016. In 2014 I became co-founder of Dancing Kala Yoga in Luxembourg and Yoga Palais in 2016.
Alongside my Jivamukti Yoga practice, I also took an Ashtanga teacher training course with David Swenson and Kidsyoga teacher training with Thomas Bannenberg. Furthermore, I have taken part in workshops and retreats all over the world. In tandem with this Yoga path, I studied for a PhD in Urbanism at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich.
I see Yoga as the best way to take care of oneself, to be stronger in every situation. Yoga gives us a feeling of security, because it helps us to be less influenced by the trivial things in life. We can become more independent through practicing Yoga, while the basis for the acceptance of ourselves as we are, with all anxieties and insecurities, is fortified.
There have been many situations in my life, in which I had to make decisions either to grow and face a problem bravely or simply drop it. Yoga has helped me to make appropriate decisions, decisions more connected to myself. Through this, I have realised more clearly what I want and can easily act accordingly.
In essence, Yoga gives us the rooting feeling that everything is good as it is. For this, I am grateful to all the teachers that have accompanied me to where I am now. And also to the little person who is probably my most important teacher: my daughter Lou Kali.

“My hope is that we collectively wake up to who we really are, becoming more authentic in our humanity, setting about living on this earth in a way that causes the least amount of harm possible, while becoming more realigned with nature. I believe that a committed Yoga practice and honest Self-enquiry, over time, enables us to directly experience the inter-connectedness of life while becoming gradually de-hypnotized from oppressive cultural norms and conditioning.
Yoga teaches us to be courageous and kind, strong but also soft, to be flexible so as to not to become bent out of shape or broken – not just in our physical bodies but in our minds, hearts and attitudes. Yoga calls on us to let go of divisive world views and to come together in pursuit of common goals.”

My yoga journey started 4 years ago, a friend took me to a hot yoga class. A few few months in to my practice there, the studio owner asked if i’d ever thought about becoming a yoga teacher. I’d never considered myself to be a teacher before, especially yoga, but the damaged was done – I couldn’t think about anything else. Like most, my first port of call with google, as you can imagine, there’s so many TT programs out there, various styles & disciplines, I was lost… Until that was, I saw Meghan Currie – I instantly knew I wanted her to be my teacher… 4 weeks later, in 2015, I was on a plane to Bali for her 200hr Teacher Training program. Since then I’ve teaching vinyasa yoga as well as practicing Jivamukti & vinyasa yoga.
Through Yoga I found a way to learn things about myself, my body, my mind and all the different layers we’re made off. Sometimes in life we feel tired, overwhelmed, exhausted, bored, overworked or unchallenged. Yoga is a powerful philosophy to help find balance and remove the negative emotions.
My focus as a teacher is to share my own experiences, both good & bad and to show how yoga continues to help me grow as an individual. I hope my path resonates and that I can inspire a change. 
I am grateful for life and all the inspired beings I meet along the way.

I first got in touch with yoga in my adolescence as my dad had a regular practice. However, I never got hooked. As a growing up teenager, I preferred other sports like soccer and extreme sports.

I rediscovered yoga during my bachelor studies in physiotherapy in Amsterdam. I started to have a regular practice and took classes of different styles. I noticed that Yoga was changing my body and mind, which no other physical or mental training ever did before. After graduating in summer 2016, I decided to do a 200-hour teacher training in Rishikesh, India to learn more about Yoga.

Yoga corresponds with my ideas of increasing peoples’ physical, mental and emotional health and wellbeing. My vision is to empower people and provide tools they can use in order to become a better version of themselves.

My path and passion encouraged me to relate Yoga and Physiotherapy and to create classes incorporating rehabilitative as well as preventative yogic concepts from a therapeutic perspective.

I am a keen learner, passionate about the human body and movement and I am looking forward to meet you in my classes.
