About Me

It all started with
some back pain

I'm a therapist, consultant as well as yoga teacher and have a deep curiosity for exploring the mind and inner dialogues that shape our behaviour and life experiences. 

Essentially, it all started with some back issues. At the age of 18, I was suffering from back pains without any apparent cause. My grandmother introduced me to a series of yoga inspired stretches, which contributed to alleviating these pains. As of that point, there was no turning back.

Simple stretches turned into a real passion  for yoga, through which I discovered mindfulness and sophrology. I started applying various principales in my daily life and rapidly noticed an improved quality of life. There was more abundance in all aspects of my life; I  became happier, healthier and found deeper connections in all my relationships!

As an academic, engineer and rational thinker, these discoveries were sometimes in contradiction with my background. However, ultimately, I decided on a drastic career change. My 9 to 5 environmental engineer job was left behind as I began to share the joy I'd discovered by following my passions. 

I came to realise, that everything comes down to mindset. Everybody has the choice and capacity to create change in life.

With a bit of persistance, proper guidance and desire to change, anything can be accomplished !
