My life long enquiry of yoga and the alternative healing arts began when I left Germany and moved to Boston in 1990. For several years, I studied Shiatsu (acupressure massage) and Macrobiotics (an oriental Health system that teaches how to live in harmony with ones environment and uses food as medicine). I taught natural food cooking classes, became a private chef and helped inspire many clients to switch to a healthier diet and lifestyle.
In 1999, I completed my yoga teacher training and started implementing the principles of Yoga’s sister science, Ayurveda, into my life.
I have since finished several years of formal Ayurveda practitioner trainings through Aloha Ayurveda Academy, Kerala Ayurveda Academy and New World Ayurveda.
Since 2005 to present, I have been studying and working closely with my teacher Dr.Suhas Kshirsagar, BAMS, facilitating Pancha Karma therapies for hundreds of patients.
Over the years, I have witnessed tremendous positive changes in client’s and in my own health through applying the principles of Ayurveda and Yoga and I love sharing the many ways it can improve our lives.
In my work, I strive to be fully present and listen deeply with my heart and hands to provide a safe, nurturing space for clients to let go and receive the profound healing Ayurveda has to offer.
