Born in Switzerland to a family of medical doctors and gynaecologists, my father awakened my interest in women’s health and life cycles when I was quite young. At the age of 14 , I was allowed to assist him with a mother giving birth to her child. Later I graduated and worked in my home country as a physiotherapist.
26 years ago, I immigrated with my husband and 4 children to South Africa. Some years after my children left home, that very special moment happened! Yoga entered my life and it became a passion, a source of deep and great joy, of increased vitality and enthusiasm, uplifting and enhancing every moment. This changed the flow of my life. I became a Yoga teacher and reconnected with the medical profession by acquiring skills as a remedial Yoga therapist.
I like the flow of Hatha Yoga but equally the dynamism and spirituality of Kundalini Yoga.
Looking for an ideal way to combine these two Yoga styles, and inspired by the great Kundalini Yoga master, Yogi Bhajan, with his knowledge about women and their health and by the ideas of a youthful 80 years old Brazilian yoga teacher, I combined the two and created a blend of dynamic Yoga sequences, breathing techniques and rituals that give mature women self-empowering and healing skills to help reducing symptoms of menopause through Hormone Yoga.
Using the experience of my own 4 pregnancies and the awe that I feel with respect to the miracle of new live growing in a woman’s womb, I enjoy teaching future moms the skills of how to nurture their bodies and how to deepen their connection to the unborn babies in Pre-Natal Yoga classes.
Yoga opened my eyes for life’s abundance. My vision is to share my enthusiasm and to light the healing and purifying fire of Yoga in others.
