Inge was first initiated into meditation at the age of thirteen, but lacking a teacher, she lost her way. She came to ParaYoga after many years of spiritual seeking to deepen her meditation practice, and she found so much more: a beloved and trusted teacher, a personal relationship with the Divine Mother, a sense of belonging to an ancient lineage, the fellowship of like-minded spiritual seekers, and restored physical vitality that had been depleted by cancer treatment. She is most grateful to have been initiated into the Sri Vidya lineage by her teacher Yogarupa Rod Stryker, and to have visited the Sri Vidya shrine in India with his teacher, Pandit Rajmani Tigunait of the Himalayan Institute.
As a somatic psychotherapist and yoga and meditation teacher, her goal is to help her clients and students to live in peace and harmony with themselves, with others, with nature, and with reality as it is. By weaving the latest developments in the field of neuroscience and western psychology with the ancient healing wisdom of Yoga, Tantra and Ayurveda, she potentiates mind-body-spirit integration in herself and others. She is a specialist in trauma renegotiation and eating disorder recovery.
In addition to ParaYoga, Inge also is trained by Judith Hanson Lasater as a Relax and Renew restorative yoga teacher. She has taught yoga classes and workshops at Daily Offering Yoga and taught meditation at Unity on the Bay. Professionally, she has presented locally, nationally and internationally on the topic of eating disorders, somatic psychotherapy, and integrative mind-body-spirit healing.
Inge is most passionate about embodiment and promotes a practice of embodied psychology and embodied spirituality. Rather than transcending the human, she wants to help her students embody the divine in human form. Her favorite quote by Swami Rama of the Himalayas is:
“The goal of sadhana is not to see God or to become divine. You are already divine. To experience your divine nature, first you have to become human…the human within you will pull the divine toward you.”
