I share the energizing quality of yoga, meditation,  mindfulness and dance since 2006. After graduated from the Free University Berlin, writing texts and concepts for the German television I focused on yoga, meditation and later on mindfulness, dance and writing again. My mission is to inspire and educate, to share techniques and experience that support to unlock once inner potential and let others and myself thrive in life and grow the heart bigger. That is why I founded the 5 Elements Yoga Academy.

I believe that growth happens from a deeper level of connection with your Self. Thereby yoga, meditation, mindfulness and conscious dance are pathways to your inner landscape. On the path you experience yourself and design your life with meaning and inner freedom. I teach you how to use the yogic practices and your creative energy within yourself, helping  to create positive life rituals that support you personally and professionally. I offer clear and precise practices with a tested methodology which brings change inside and out.

Classical initiated to yoga by an Indian Brahman I studied several yoga styles combining the traditions of yoga with modern developments, delivered in approachable ways with scientific and peer-informed data. My teaching draws from the teachings of truth-seeking international master teachers and my own direct experience. I studied Advaita Vedanta and Kashmir Shaiva Tantra, Sivananda and Anusara Yoga, meditation with Sally Kempton and Mindfulness at the Radboud University. 



Looking for the truth I did seek out my tendency for violence in thoughts, disconnection to myself, judgment, sadness, jealousy and victim behavior. Yoga and meditation showed up helping  me to become more myself and to grow my heart bigger. 


I am living with my two sons, my husband Bjorn and our dog in Nijmegen since 2011, moving from Berlin,  to live at the woods close to nature where the horses and bisons live wild at the river Waal. Here I have been running my studio Yogapoint Arnhem for six years. Now I like to make more impact creating more trainings and offering events for health and wellbeing.  Thank you for joining me on the path of yoga, wellbeing, consciousness and awakening,
