About The Teacher

Throughout the years I stayed at various yoga schools and ashrams (I also ran away from some). I studied at Kaivalyadhama Yoga Institute & Research Centre, one of the oldest and foremost yoga colleges in the world.


Vipassana was another milestone on my yoga journey. I spent 10 days sitting cross-legged on a cushion in stillness. Ten days of complete silence, ten days of not talking and no distraction, observing the constant chatter of the mind. I can't even put that experience into words.


In 2013 I finally made the cut and completed my yoga teacher training in traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa in the Himalayas. I longed for an intense training, rooted in the origins of yoga and embedded in the culture.

Ashtanga is an ancient system of yoga that was codified by K. Pattabhi Jois in the 20th century. It is one of the oldest and most important teachings of yoga. It is also one of the most demanding forms of Hatha Yoga.
