As a yoga teacher I devote the wisdom I gain about movement, breathing and letting go.

Practising yoga asanas and meditation on a daily basis synchronises my body with my mind, feeling rejuvenated and most importantly free of pain.

My historical foundation leads back to scholarly training in classical and modern ballet. I work as a performing artist and teach classical and modern ballet. My professional dance education gives me a strong knowledge of the body with an explicit focus on injury prevention and stress release.

In my teachings, I challenge my students to transform self-mastery creating awareness of their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. I construct my classes with the aim to create concentration and stillness through different meditation methods. I develop sequences where balancing the hormonal system is guidance. This all with the essence to unite the mind-body awakening the subtle energy.

"Within the transformation of self-study, we create wisdom understanding our own Guru knowledge. Gu means darkness and Ru means its destroyer. The master is you and you are your own teacher.

Embrace the word Guru for its symbolism and spirituality.
Embrace Yoga as a philosophy, a union of body, mind and soul.
Embrace GuruYoga for self-healing creating awareness."
