I am often described as the ultimate European, because I was born in Germany, raised in France, and later studied and worked in Italy, the UK, Croatia and Spain.
After a Master’s degree in European Politics and a distinguished career in public service as a translator, I discovered yoga, first and foremost to heal the back pain and hormonal imbalances I was experiencing due to my office-bound lifestyle.
This opened up a whole new world, not only because I learnt that we can all activate our body’s self-healing powers when we learn to look after it, but also because the ancient yoga philosophy and lifestyle matched my life-long quest for independence and simplicity.
My interest in women’s health then brought me to the Birthlight school, founded by anthropologist and international yoga teacher Françoise Freedman, where I specialised in pre- and postnatal yoga (2015) and then in the Wellwoman method (2017/18).
I keep fine-tuning my skills with further training (most recently a sequencing retreat with senior London teachers Graham Burns and Susanne Lahusen).
I have been teaching in studios in Paris (Yoga and Co), London (Yogacreation and The Life Centre) and Palma de Mallorca since 2008 and also organised my own weeklong retreats in Spain and Italy (La Locanda della Quercia Calante).
I also teach online, in French, on www.Yogaconnect.fr .
