Originally from St. Paul Minnesota, I have been living in my adopted home Berlin, Germany
for most of my life now. I passionately work as a voice teacher, a language coach for
commercials and a yoga teacher.
When professionally performing as a soprano in the classical music scene, I started looking
for methods to deal with the adrenaline and the pressure performers have to deal with to
help and heal myself and others as a teacher.
Encouraged by a director, I started practicing yoga. I completed two teacher trainings in
vinyasa flow yoga (200h+ and 252h+) well over ten years ago, enjoyed the pleasure of
studying Yin yoga with Paul Grilley who opened my eyes in regards to anatomy. Then,
inspired by my own three children I added two pre- and postnatal yoga trainings.
Many renowned teachers taught intensives at the studio and I traveled to many big names to
find my teacher. After I met Yogarupa Rod Stryker 2010 at a workshop he taught, I knew this
is it. This is my teacher. I have stuck with him ever since and completed another 500 h of
training with parayoga and got my level 1 certification. Studying with Yogarupa has truly
shifted my understanding of yoga and the world, and I am full of gratitude for the happiness,
abundance and light I experience through practice every single day. I have always loved
music and movement. Since I have become part of this tradition, these two have been
perfectly enhanced by connection to and love for the depth of mantra.
After having successfully taught at a big studio in Berlin for several years, I now teach yoga
privates to anyone who is looking for more depth in their yoga practice, busy CEOs or
doctors dealing with stress, public personae who publicly lecture or stand in the spotlight,
and directly in companies and cultural institutions (Akademie der Künste and Finnland Institut).
I teach hatha yoga, yoga therapy, vinyasa flow, yin yoga, restorative yoga, prenatal yoga and
meditation. I also give workshops and teach parayoga yoga nidra as taught by the Himalayan
tradition. Whatever the style may be called, what I teach is always strongly infused with
parayoga’s insights and the tradition’s wisdom.
