I started “practicing” yoga in the Jivamukti tradition back when living in NYC’s East Village some 20plus years ago. And started “diving in and going deeper with my practice” after a devastating skydiving accident in 2003 had me experience a broken spine, spinal surgery, serious nerve damage to inner organs and broken leg bones; which all dramatically but mindfully turned my connection to body, spirit and community around. Influenced by my own body’s incredible & ongoing story of self healing through yoga, mindful lifestyle choices and human ENERGY-work, I aim to bring a unique sense of strength and presence, gentle empowerment, playful investigation of the forces of nature and practice of building stable foundations to each of my classes.
Through intention, meditation, pranayama and asana my goal is to have my students leave each class feeling connected, centered and renewed. I teach in a way that provokes self-healing, thought and meaning, letting the student experience their bodies, their mind, breath and the power of community. My classes are delivered in English and|or German, with sanskrit woven through, they include healing visualizations and are underlined by carefully curated wisdoms and sometimes by yogic & world contemporary tunes of VENUSfrequency playlists, of my popculture and yogic lifestyle, online and radio platform. www.venusfrequency.com
Classes include demonstrations as well as hands on assists. I aim to live a yogic lifestyle and lead my classes in a way that reflects that choice.
I am also a Master Reiki & creatove EFT practitioner, human Energy worker and work with PRANAfrequenz Meditation Journeys, which use mindful touch in the REIKI lineage, visualization, pranayama and vedic philosophies to activate self healing, bring self -knowledge, harmony and balance.
