Born in Sri Lanka, raised in Germany - My first insights into Yoga & Meditation were on my first trip to Sri Lanka, almost 20 years ago. A few years later I started teaching. My initial former 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training was held at the Yoga Shala Berlin in 2007, conducted by Henning Scheel (who studied with Shiva Rea) and Andrej Lappa / Universal Yoga, followed by a 300 hour training in 2013 with the team of Louisa Sear / Yoga Arts Australia and so many more hours of study along the way - with Daniel Odier (Kashmir Shaivism), at the Krishnamarchaya Institute, with Sri Nanda Kumar (Senior Iyengar teacher), at the Dayananada Ashram (Institute for Vedanta), with David Swenson, Clive Sheridan, Ana Forrest, Sally Kempton…….. and more recently with Sianna Sherman / Rasa Yoga, her partner Masood Ali Khan/Bhakti Yoga, Shiva Rea / Lunar Arts and ongoingly by Louisa Sear´s Yoga Arts / Kashmir Shaivism, Hatha Yoga and Ayurveda.
In 2015 together with my partner Mahendra, I created Sri Yoga Shala: a centre for yoga, meditation, movement, bodywork, arts and creativity on the southwest coast of Sri Lanka, the country I chose to live in since 2012.
“My intention, as much in my own practice as in my teachings is the fostering of the connection to our core, our innate wisdom teacher, the potential for instant joy and our capacity for self healing.”
