Yoga became really a big game changer for me 2 years ago. Since that time I try to practice daily Meditation, Asanas, Pranayama and I work on myself.

What advice would you give to someone who is starting their yoga journey?

Remember – the patience will come as on the mat so in your life. Also the practice is ALWAYS for you. This
How do you include yoga in your daily life?
I have my cleansing morning routine, meditation practice, I prefer to do Yoga Asanas in the evening. I check what I need. Sometimes its Yin, sometimes its Hatha, sometimes Vinyasa. I really have something now in my life I want to learn daily more about. Yoga helps me so much to grow as a human being.
What can I expect when I join one of your classes?
For me its important to always remind you, that this is your praxis. I want you to feel deep in your body, focus on you. I love it when it gets flexible and we stretch our bodies. I love Hatha so much. I love to tell you during the praxis which chakra we stimulate, which energy we activate and to release emotions.
What is your favorite asana?
Upavista Konasana – I feel like I can let go of everything and the floor holds me, whatever happens.
