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 practice 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 traveled 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 Kids yoga 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 Ph.D. 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 realized 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.
