Kundalini Yoga entered my life back in 2007 when I was expecting my first child, Anton. I
believe the moment was right to start something new, exciting and life changing in those
special days of transition to a wonderful world of motherhood.
Since then I completed my KY teacher training and have been traveling to numerous yoga
workshops and trainings around the world.
I enjoy in particular sharing the science of yoga with moms-to-be and teaching post-natal
yoga classes and to help women to feel empowered during these beautiful moments.
In alignment with my yoga practice, I am a co-founder of a preschool where we practice a
play-based, child-centered approach to the early childhood education. My family also opened
a child friendly hotel and an organic grocery store & café where one can be easily inspired to
a healthy life style.
I am very grateful both to my teachers and to my students and friends for being a part of
this magnificent adventure of life!
Light to all,
