Right in my first yoga class I was fascinated by the challenge of not judging or evaluating any upcoming bodily or mental sensation, but solely experiencing the effects on all levels.
Shortly after that, I strongly felt the need to more and more engage into the world of Yoga and the concepts it holds for increasing life quality and emotional well-being. In 2011, I started my teacher training with the German and European Yoga Union (BDY/EYU, an associated organization with the Bristish Wheel of Yoga, BWY) and received my certificate (500hr teacher training) in 2013.
As my training also embraces the beneficial aspects of core stability, I am also a Pilates instructor and started to joyfully teach both Yoga and Pilates in 2012 in different studios in Germany. During this time I also became a stress management trainer (certified by the Institute of Health Psychology, Marburg, Germany) and completed my PhD in Psychology at Jena University, Germany. As I am very keen on extending my teaching skills and knowledge, I am continuing my training up to 800hr, which I will be completing in November 2015. Additionally, I have accomplished an Ante- and Postnatal Exercise Training to guide pregnant women and new parents through their times of change with Yoga.
Currently, I am yielding a post-doctoral research fellowship in the field of Psychology/Cognitive Neuroscience, while perceiving an urgent desire to work with people. I appreciate the opportunity to bring a little joy and peace to the lives of others.
