    Yoga teacher and
    certified psychotherapist

    As a psychologist and yoga teacher, I love brining the two disciplines together. Apart from the physical movement, yoga also moves the internal and promotes a fantastic interplay between body and mind. Despite movement, yoga offers a form of internal retreat and creates access to unconscious desires and old wounds which are resolved through conscious acceptance. It stimulates self-reflection. In my yoga lessons, I place great value on every student finding their “own yoga”, learning to recognise and respect the borders of their body, of being open to newness and finding trust. Each body is different, hence it is important to adapt yoga exercises to your own body.

    Yoga teacher, natural practitioner and federally certified fitness instructor

    I want to share my delight in movement and training the body, as well as my passion for constant personal development. I accompany my clients on the way to better fitness, during rehabilitation from illnesses and as a life coach when changing dietary habits. A wonderful connection forms between these disciplines and findings from natural medicine which helps you to develop an holistic image of the body.
    Regular practicing of yoga, meditation and retreats leads to balance within us. These experiences stay with us in our everyday life and strengthen our self-awareness.

Holistic Retreats

We start the morning with a Vinyasa flow sequence that prepares us optimally for the meditation which follows. The voluntary workshops on nutrition and psychology in the afternoon give you additional knowledge to help you learn how small changes, such as in eating habits or other ways of thinking, can make big changes in your health, energy levels and well-being. The evening lessons with Yin yoga are deeply relaxing and regenerative. You will be nourished all around in this Retreat with good food, wellness and positive energy.

The word «Yoga» roughly translates to uniting body and soul through deep concentration and becoming one with one's self. A session includes bodily movements, breathing techniques, concentration exercises and meditation. The goal is to improve vitality, and at the same time strive towards a posture of inner peace.

Hatha Yoga

The origins of Hatha Yoga can be traced back to the middle ages (to the 15th century AD) in India. It was formed from the philosophical and religious currents of so-called Tantrism. Hatha Yoga means «yoga of strength» and is based on the idea of strengthening the body in order to receive the power of awakened consciousness. Physical exercises, breathing and meditation are employed to bring body and mind into harmony. The methods and practices of Hatha Yoga form the foundation for the majority of modern yoga types.

Vinyasa Flow Yoga

Vinyasa Yoga is a mix of dynamic and powerful movements, correct alignment, and individually tailored poses (variants). Each breath flows in sync and in rhythm with the body, such that the entire human organism is in flow. Whether the tempo of a Vinyasa class is slow or more rapid, if it includes meditation or singing, is dependant upon the instructor. If you like to get loose and move creatively, then Vinyasa Flow Yoga is likely right for you.

Yin/Yang Yoga

During Yin & Yang Yoga, we learn to balance our body and soul. Yang stands for principles of being active and movement. Using dynamic yoga and sun salutations, we activate our entire circulatory systems and strengthen our muscles, joints and ligaments. Yin stands for dedication and peace. In Yin Yoga, we hold poses for longer and work more deeply in the body’s layers, the fascia. This is a deeply intimate and meditative form of yoga connected with the activation of energy flow along the meridians.


Meditation is wonderfully suited to helping us counteract the hectic effects of time. We can find strength in peaceful moments to help us better confront the challenges of everyday life with a smile. Meditation exercises help us to calm our spirits and to collect ourselves.
