Originally, I started practicing yoga at the age of sixteen, diagnosed with scoliosis. When my children went to school I started giving Yoga lessons after practicing with a teacher for several years, who was herself, a student of Selvarajan Yesudian and Elisabeth Haich. Years later, I trained as a Yoga teacher in West Bengal with Sushil Bhattacharya teaching Sapta Yoga.
After my previous yoga training, by chance really I discovered the Shri Kali Ashram, I finally found the yoga system that I wanted to teach and practice myself, a wholesome yoga flow that I have now been teaching since I finished my training in 2013. Since my first visit in the Ashram most of my family, three daughters, my husband, as well as some friends, have completed the teacher training at Shri Kali Ashram.
My students now benefit from my classes, and once they become accustomed to the rhythm of the flow, they sink into the asanas in a self-aware, non-competitive way, as recommended by the school. This works. The development is amazing! I enjoy teaching the Tri-Dosha Series, as I feel both secure and competent in this asana sequence and as well, receive continual reward through my personal practice. My students sink deep into shavasana at the end of each class, feeling a steady energy flow through their bodies.
I was born in Zurich in 1987. My first passion was singing. At a very young age I began singing classes and continued on to study voice at Zurich University of the Arts. I continue passing on my voice knowledge as a vocal coach as well as teaching yoga. Thanks to the self-study of various spiritual teachings and intense voice and bodywork, I found my way to yoga. After learning from my teacher, Delia Krattinger at Bliss Yoga, I became more interested in going deeper into the philosophical aspects of yoga and its origins. This took me to Goa, India where I completed my 200 hour Teacher training course in traditional tantra yoga at Shri Kali Ashram. Now I am happily sharing this system with my students.
I loved being at Shri Kali Ashram. It was one of the most beautiful experiences I’ve had so far. The Yoga was amazingly restorative and beautifully meditative. I was able to let go of all the wrong ideas I had about yoga as sport and found what I was really searching for - the spiritual path through yoga. This, I was missing in almost every other yoga course I’ve been in. This is now what I love to share, and this is what my students now receive. Almost every student that experiences this system for the first time comes to me after class and thanks me for their experience. They have expressed becoming in touch with their own body again, as they were able to connect it to their mind and soul, without judging their bodily experience. My students and I both love it! :)
