It feels whole again
The broken pieces are One
And I am the glue

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) originally brought me to yoga. I know what it feels like to lose balance, when the connection between mind and body, thought, emotion and action is gone. I know what pain is. Yoga has helped me cope. It has given me strength, confidence and compassion. Yoga is much more than just an exercise routine. It has touched me deeply and is my daily companion, it teaches me acceptance and mindfulness, it gives me stability and ease.

I am certified as an RYT 500, E-RYT 200 and Continuing Education Provider (YACEP) by Yoga Alliance and have been offering yoga retreats in Grisons under my label Swiss Yoga Retreats since 2017. I am also the owner of local yoga studio Davos Yoga. My training as a facilitator of yoga includes a variety of styles, from Hatha & Vinyasa to Yin, Therapeutic Yoga and Yoga for Trauma, and I’ve completed well over 700 hours of training. I consider myself a bit of an anatomy geek, and I’m also very much inspired by somatic movement, embodiment practices and non-dualist philosophy.

My practice and teachings are based on my love for the human body-mind, my own experiences with healing trauma and injury through yoga, and a focus on safety and sustainability. I love to soften into observing the sensations in the body-mind, and to allow for moments of pure awareness and connection. Pranayama and meditation are an important part of my practice. I love to breathe deeply, and I love to sit down and be quiet.

Apart from teaching, studying and living yoga, I spend a lot of time exploring the world on my two feet. I’m a certified «Tourenleiterin Bergwandern SAC», and I love to combine my passions of yoga and walking in my offerings of mindful and sensory hikes.
