I am a dancer, yogini and acupressure practitioner and have dedicated my path to the practice and embodiment of Yoga, well beyond the execution of postures on a mat. Though deep, refined embodiment is indeed the foundation of my practice, for me, the teachings of Yoga must eventually filter into and infuse each and every aspect of the way we craft our lives; from the way we orient and take care of ourselves on a day to day basis, to the way we communicate and interact, create boundaries, make choices and live our dreams.

Whilst there is a firm accent on alignment and tonicity in the Yoga that I transmit, there is also space and time given for restoration, recalibration and deep relaxation. My intention is to offer simple, sustainable practises that allow you to adapt to life and its challenges with greater ease, insight and resilience, cultivating long-lasting health and wellbeing of the body, mind and soul.

When I am not teaching I can be found crafting therapeutic oils and vibrational essences, gathering wildflowers and herbs, spending time in nature and tending to my three young children.

I teach Soma Yoga, Shadow Yoga and Ten Moon Yoga in Switzerland and host retreats in both Europe and Australia.
