Born and raised in Wuerzburg, Germany, Mirko moved to Los Angeles in 1999 to work as a screenwriter.
In November 2011, he developed his last TV show, and departed Hollywood to come to Tulum in order to fully devote himself to his personal yoga – a mix of intuitive yoga and mind therapy and self-realization work (which included washing dishes, chopping wood, cleaning toilets and sleeping in a tent on a beach).
His workshops are specially created by Mirko out of the need to finally walk his talk, to practice what he preaches, and live a non-violent life in action.
He created a powerful mix of practical and simple methods to implement in real everyday life all the nice theories and philosophies he accumulated in over 15 years of study.
Mirko’s work is heavily influenced by his teachers Eckhart Tolle, Byron Katie, Marshal Rosenberg and hundreds of other gurus like his parents, his ex-wife, employers, bosses, business partners, waiters, policemen, and politicians.
More precisely - Mirk's Yoga consists of and mixes with the Methods of Nonviolent Communication by Marshall Rosenberg, Kinesiology by Dr. Hawkins, and Byron Katie's method of inquiry (The Work).
He often teaches beautiful mind detox yoga and candle light yoga classes around the globe with his partner Luna.
