About The Teacher

I grew up in Switzerland and was trained in economies and industrial mechanics.

After some years of working in a big company, I wanted to change my life and made the ISA surfteacher licence.

For some years I travelled around the world teaching and guiding surf. A real home, materialistic stuff and financial safety was becoming more and more unnecessary to me. My heart turned into my home, no matter where I was. And I learnt to live in the very moment and feel the connection to everything around me. No worries about the future. Just accept and enjoy what’s going on right now.

During that time, I was getting in touch with the yoga philosophies. Today, yoga is a very important guide for me and leads me through every moment in life.

2011 I was living in the Yoga Vidya Ashram in Germany and became a yoga teacher BYV (300 hrs) in the tradition of Swami Sivananda. Along the way, I also attended different massage courses and started to practice. After that I was teaching yoga at different places around the world.

Now, I live in Ericeira, Portugal and spend my days with surfing, yoga and giving massages.
